Call For Papers

Call for Papers

The Tenth ACM Workshop on Hot Topics in Networks (HotNets-X) will
bring together researchers in computer networks and systems to engage in
a lively debate on the theory and practice of networking. HotNets will
provide a venue for debating broad future research agendas in
networking and for presenting innovative ideas that have the potential
to significantly influence the community.

We invite researchers and practitioners to submit short position
papers. We are particularly interested in papers that foster
discussion of broad research agendas for the networking community as a
whole. We strongly encourage papers that identify fundamental open
questions, or offer a constructive critique of the state of networking

We also encourage submissions of early-stage work describing enticing
but unproven ideas. Such papers could, for example, advocate a new
approach, re-frame or debunk existing work, report unexpected early
results from a deployment, or propose new evaluation methodologies.
Once fully developed and evaluated, the work may be relevant to
conferences such as SIGCOMM, SOSP, SenSys, NSDI, MobiCom, PODC, CoNEXT
or Infocom.

HotNets takes a broad view of networking research. This view includes
new ideas relating to (but not limited to) home and enterprise
networks, ISP networks, sensor and personal area networks, wireless
and acoustic networks, data center networks, peer-to-peer networks,
network architecture, and disruption-tolerant networks. It encompasses
all aspects of such networks, including (but not limited to) resource
management, economics and evolution, robustness and security,
mobility, interactions with applications, usability of underlying
networking technologies, energy, measurement and diagnosis, and

Position papers will be selected based on originality, likelihood of
spawning insightful discussion at the workshop, and technical
merit. Accepted papers will be posted online prior to the workshop and
a workshop summary will be published in ACM SIGCOMM's Computer
Communication Review (CCR), widely disseminating the ideas discussed
at the workshop.

Workshop Participation
HotNets is an invitation-only workshop. To ensure an interactive
atmosphere, attendance will be limited to around 60
people. Invitations will be extended per the following priorities:

* one author per accepted paper, any speakers invited by the
Program Committee, and the Program and Steering Committees,
* co-authors of accepted and submitted papers, preferring students
as available travel support allows, and
* event-sponsor representatives and additional authors of
submitted papers at the discretion of the Program Committee.

Submission Instructions
Submitted papers must be no longer than 6 pages (10 point font, 1 inch
margins). All submissions must be blind: submissions must not indicate
the names or affiliations of the authors in the paper. Only electronic
submissions in PDF will be accepted. Submissions must be written in
English, render without error using standard tools (e.g., Acrobat
Reader), and print on US-Letter sized paper. Papers must contain novel
ideas and must differ significantly in content from previously
published papers and papers under simultaneous submission.

Important Dates
Abstract registration: July 15, 2011 (11:59pm EDT)
Paper submission: July 22, 2011 (11:59pm EDT)
Notification of decision: September 19, 2011
Camera-ready submission: October 15, 2011
Workshop dates: November 14-15, 2011
