ANCS is a systems-oriented research conference, presenting
original work that explores the relationship between the algorithms and
architectures of data communication networks and the hardware and software
elements from which these networks are built.
This includes both experimental and theoretical analysis. To recognize and foster the increasing
importance of research into the co-design of computer and network systems, the
conference also places an emphasis on systems issues arising from the
interaction of computer and network architectures.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
design for future network architectures
and switch architectures
networking algorithms and mechanisms
Defined Networking systems
Functions Virtualization architectures
infrastructure architectures and systems
for data centers
router, server, and storage platforms
and systems for large-scale data analysis
network hardware and related software, including software radios
- Mesh, ad hoc and sensor network hardware and
network architectures, platforms, and mechanisms
security architectures and security anchor/enhancement devices
measurement techniques, architectures, and devices
programming and application frameworks
and high-function network processing platforms
and size-optimized computer and communications platforms
accelerators and offload engines
networking elements, e.g., multicore, NPU, FPGA, TCAM, custom ASIC
architectures and applications
architectures and technologies for packet, state and table storage.
The submission deadline for
abstracts is May 14, 2014 at 11:59 PM PDT
The submission deadline for full
papers is May 21, 2014 at 11:59 PM PDT
There will be no extensions.
NOTIFICATION OF ACCEPTANCE: July 14, 2014
The Program Committee may choose to accept certain papers conditionally, based on a shepherding process.
ANCS 2014 will use a single-blind review
Full papers should be submitted using a 10pt font on 12pt leading formatted for
printing on Letter-sized (8.5" by 11") paper. Paper text blocks must
follow the IEEE guidelines for conference proceedings. Latex and Word templates
are available at IEEE Manuscript Templates for Conference
Proceedings. ANCS submissions must be no longer
than 12 pages. The PC may choose to reject any paper that violates these format
Submissions should contain original ideas relevant to the scope of ANCS. Papers
submitted to ANCS should not be submitted simultaneously to any other
conferences or publications; submissions of papers previously published in a peer-reviewed
conference are unacceptable and will be rejected; papers accepted by ANCS
should not be subsequently published elsewhere. Papers describing work that was
previously published in a peer-reviewed workshop are allowed, if a significant amount
of new content is clearly identified by the authors in the paper.
All submissions will be treated as confidential prior to publication in the
proceedings; rejected submissions will be permanently treated as confidential.
ANCS 2014 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/.
