Call for Posters

The 14th ACM/IEEE Symposium on Architectures for Networking and Communications Systems
ANCS 2018

ACM/IEEE ANCS, will be held July 23-24, 2018, at Ithaca, New York, USA, 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.

The 2018 ACM/IEEE Symposium on Architectures for Networking and Communications (ANCS)
will include a poster session to provide a forum for researchers to showcase their exciting early work and get
feedback from the community. Areas of interest are the same as those listed for regular papers.
Posters need not describe complete work, but they should have at least preliminary results to report so
that feedback on the ongoing work can be obtained from knowledgeable conference attendees.
Posters will be evaluated based on their technical merit and innovation as well as their potential to
stimulate interesting discussions and exchange of ideas. Submissions from both industry and universities
are encouraged. Two-page extended abstracts will be published in the conference proceedings.




A poster submission should be a two (2) page extended abstract. We recommend that a poster extended abstract

has the format of a self-contained short paper including introduction, method, and result sections; note that you must

include some preliminary results. The papers should follow the template at:

ACM Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings (Dec.20, 2017) but use 10pt font.

All material on each page should fit within a rectangle of 18 × 23.5 cm (7" × 9.25"), centered on the page, beginning 1.9 cm (0.75") from the top of the page and ending with 2.54 cm (1") from the bottom. The right and left margins should be 1.9 cm (.75"). The text should be in two 8.45 cm (3.33") columns with a .83 cm (.33") gutter.

Please submit your poster abstract submissions at: by the following deadline.
