The CNERT '17 workshop invites submissions about testbed-based research and experiments.  Submissions are due on January 24, 2017 (second extended deadline).  Please see the CFP below.


4th International Workshop on Computer and Networking Experimental
Research Using Testbeds (CNERT)


Held as part of the IEEE International Conference on Computer
Communications (INFOCOM), Atlanta, GA, USA


  * Submissions due: January 17, 2017 (extended deadline)
  * Acceptance notification: February 22, 2017
  * Camera-ready paper submission: March 12, 2017
  * Workshop: May 1, 2017


Experimentation has played a very important role in advancing research in computing.  Although simulation is an important tool for studying and analyzing the behavior of new protocols and algorithms, it is essential that new research ideas be validated on real systems and testbeds.

This workshop will bring together researchers and technical experts to share experiences and advance the state of the art in experimental
research in areas such as networking, distributed systems, and cloud
computing.  It aims to inspire researchers to use testbeds in novel and interesting ways as a means to validate research ideas.  Of particular interest are experiments on publicly available testbeds such as GENI, Emulab, CloudLab, DeterLab, ORBIT, Fed4FIRE testbeds, PlanetLab, and so on.

We solicit papers with experimental results from areas including, but
not limited to:

  * Distributed systems
  * Cloud computing and big data
  * Computer and network security
  * Wired and wireless network experimentation (including sensor
    networks, WiMAX and LTE communications and services, and optical
  * Software defined networking (SDN)
  * Future Internet architectures
  * Network economics and pricing

Experiments may focus on challenges including, but not limited to:

  * Instrumentation and measurement
  * Large-scale experiments
  * Evaluation and analysis of experiment data
  * Creation and sharing of datasets of broad interest to the community
  * Experiment design and deployment
  * Design for repeatability and reproducibility
  * Tools and services for testbed users and operators
  * Experiments on federated testbeds
  * Testbed implementation and deployment

The workshop will have a strong experimental component.  Paper
presentations are encouraged to include live demonstrations, and papers are encouraged to include references to detailed experiment setups that will enable others to extend the work.  Each paper submission should include a section indicating (1) if a live demonstration during the workshop is feasible and (2) if so, how the results will be demonstrated.  Due to the experimental nature of the submissions, CNERT strongly encourages authors to make all of their experiment artifacts, including obtained data traces, publicly available to the research community.

In addition to a best paper award, CNERT will have a separate award for the best demo that exemplifies the principles of experiment
repeatability and reproducibility on real systems with running code.


All submissions should follow the IEEE standard 8.5"x11" two-column
conference format.  Paper submissions should be at most six pages in
length, including all figures and references.  All papers must be
submitted through EDAS through the following link: https://edas.info/N23032
