The 15th ACM/IEEE Symposium on Architectures for Networking and Communications Systems

ANCS 2019

ACM/IEEE ANCS will be held 24th and 25th of September, 2019 in Cambridge, UK, and is the premier forum for presenting and discussing original research 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. ANCS focuses on architectures for networking and communication in the broad sense, including novel architectures, architectural support for advanced communication, algorithms and protocols for advanced architectures, software and applications for next-generation networking architectures, co-design of computer and network systems, and methodology and benchmarking for evaluating advanced communication architectures.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

● Wired and wireless communications systems architectures

● Domain-specific languages for networked systems

● Networked system architectures

● SDN/NFV systems architectures

● Converged system architectures (network, computation, memory and storage)

● Architectures for in-network computing systems

● Hardware/software co-design for networked systems architectures

● Architectures supporting reconfigurable and programmable networked systems

● Architectures for network security

● Architectures for network measurement

● Measurements of networked systems architectures

● Measurements of communications architectures

● Architectures for accelerators, offload engines and single-chip networking elements

● Architectures and experiences for energy efficient networked systems design

The conference seeks an emphasis on the applicability and feasibility of approach, and

will prioritize implementation and measurement-led submissions. Authors are invited to

include artifacts and data sets as part of their submission, and those would be looked favourably by

the committee. Submissions are double blind.
