Hello NRG students,

I encourage you to submit this the CoNext student workshop; it's nearby
(Philly), attracts a good crowd of networking researchers, and also, I'm on
the PC :)

Call for papers

ACM CoNEXT 2010 Student Workshop

Held in conjunction with
The 6th ACM International Conference on emerging Networking
EXperiments and Technologies
November 30, 2010
Philadelphia, USA


The 6th ACM International Conference on emerging Networking EXperiments and
Technologies (ACM CoNEXT), to be held in Philadelphia, USA, will continue as a
forum for fostering scientific and technological exchanges between various
international research communities in networking. Following the success of
previous years, the main conference will be preceded with a one day Student
Workshop. The ACM CoNEXT 2010 Student Workshop aims to provide the
opportunity for graduate students in the areas of computer networks and data
communication to divulge their ongoing research efforts, even if at an early
stage. The venue also represents a unique opportunity for students to network
with other young researchers as well as more experienced ones, receiving
constructive feedback, guidance, tips, and learning about cutting-edge research
problems being tackled by the student community.

We invite submissions of abstracts of up to 2 pages from graduate students
describing ongoing research work for potential presentation at the ACM CoNEXT
2010 Student Workshop. Research that addresses non-standard topics and
controversial problems and approaches is of particular interest. Submission of
work in an early stage is encouraged.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

Internet measurement and modeling 
Economic aspects of networks
Network security and dependability
Routing and traffic engineering 
Wireless networks 
Mobile and cellular networks
Ad hoc and sensor networks
Social networks
Data center networks 
Peer-to-peer and overlay networks 
Delay and disruption tolerant networks 
New networking protocols 
Future Internet architectures

Selected abstracts will be published in the ACM CoNEXT 2010 proceedings and
authors will be required to present their work through a poster session.


Please follow the ACM CoNEXT 2010 Formatting Guidelines (http://conferences.sigcomm.org/co-next/2010/Submission/index.html) EXCEPT 
for the following two differences: 
- Papers are limited to TWO (2) pages only. This includes ALL figures,
   tables, appendices, etc.  

- Please provide only author names and affiliations; it is not necessary
   to add PAPER ID and number of pages.  

Abstracts can be submitted at: http://conext.cs.illinois.edu

After having submitted their abstracts, all PhD students will be asked to
comment on 1 - 2 submitted abstracts. This will allow the students to see the
ongoing research of the others before the workshop to facilitate discussion,
feedback, and potential collaboration. These comments will not be used by the
PC to select which posters appear at the workshop, and authors will be given
the option to exclude their abstracts from comments by other students.


Abstract submission: October 8, 2010
Notification of acceptance: October 24, 2010
Camera ready: October 30, 2010
Workshop: November 30, 2010
