ANCS is a systems-oriented research conference, presenting original work that explores the relationship between the architecture of modern computer networks and the architecture of the individual hardware and software elements from which these networks are built. This year's conference will particularly emphasize insight into broader systems issues in its paper selection, to recognize and foster the growth of research that lies at the intersection of computer and network systems architecture.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
The deadline for submissions of full papers is May 19, 2013 at 11:59 PM PDT (US). There will be no extensions given.
NOTIFICATION OF ACCEPTANCE: August 9, 2013
The Program Committee may choose to accept certain papers conditionally, based on a shepherding process.
ANCS 2013 will use single-blind reviewing, so submitted papers should include the authors' names.
Submit papers using a 10pt font on 12pt leading formatted for printing on Letter-sized (8.5" by 11") paper. Paper text blocks must follow ACM guidelines: double-column, with each column 9.25" by 3.33", 0.33" space between columns. Each column must contain no more than 55 lines of text. Latex and Word templates, and additional submission requirements, are available via http://www.ancsconf.org. ANCS submissions must be no longer than 12 pages. The PC may choose to reject any paper that violates these format requirements, and no deadline extensions will be allowed for re-formatting.
We encourage submissions containing original ideas that are relevant to the scope of ANCS. Like other conferences, ANCS requires that papers not be submitted simultaneously to any other conferences or publications; that submissions not be previously published in peer-reviewed conferences; and that accepted papers not be subsequently published elsewhere. Papers describing work that was previously published in a peer-reviewed workshop are allowed, if the authors clearly describe what significant new content has been included.
All submissions will be treated as confidential prior to publication in the proceedings; rejected submissions will be permanently treated as confidential.
ANCS 2013 will include a poster session. Submission deadlines and guidelines will be announced at a later date on the conference web site http://www.ancsconf.org/.
