LANCOMM STUDENT WORKSHOP 2019
The LANCOMM Student Workshop (Latin American Student Workshop on Data Communication Networks) represents a unique opportunity for students from Latin America to network with other junior researchers as well as more experienced ones. It provides a platform for students to present their ongoing research efforts, receive constructive feedback, guidance, tips, and learn about cutting-edge research problems being tackled by the computer networks community, as well as meet senior members from the community.
LANCOMM will have a mentoring nature, something that has been absent from previous SBRC conferences but is aligned with SBRC 2019 efforts. It represents an opportunity for postgraduate students and junior faculty from Latin America to learn best practices with more experienced and acknowledged researchers, and get constructive feedback on their research, possibly helping identify new promising directions.
LANCOMM will additionally serve as a meeting point for Latin American researchers to share new ideas and experiences and to discuss the challenges linked to the development of data communication networks in Latin America.
Call for Abstracts
The Latin American Student Workshop on Data Communication Networks (LANCOMM 2019) solicits stimulating and original ideas in all aspects of networking research, reflecting the ongoing research efforts of postgraduate students and junior faculty members in the form of 2-page extended abstracts.
We encourage submissions about research at an early stage as well as more advanced dissertation-level research. Accepted presentations will not be published as proceedings, so postgraduate students can submit already accepted/published dissertation-level results and conversely results presented at the workshop can subsequently be submitted, in more complete form, for publication in a full-fledged conference or journal. Research addressing non-standard topics, controversial problems and approaches are of particular interest.
The LANCOMM Student Workshop expects to provide International Student Travel Grants (funding to be confirmed). These grants will be allocated preferentially to students from Latin America with preference for countries outside the host one (in 2019, Brazil) and with accepted abstracts.
The scope of the workshop is broad and covers all aspects of networking research. Example topics include (but are not limited to):
- Mobile, ad hoc, wireless, and cellular data networks
- Self-driving networks and machine learning
- Network verification and synthesis
- Energy-efficient computing and networking
- Internet of things
- Future Internet protocols and architectures
- Network applications and services
- Network measurement and modeling
- QoE measurement of network services
- Traffic measurement, analysis, and engineering
- Routing and Peering
- Information/content-centric networks
- Data center networks and cloud computing
- SDN, network programming
- Programmable data planes, P4
- Network function virtualization, middleboxes
- Online social networks
- Network economics, incentives and game theory
- Security and privacy in fixed and mobile networks
To prepare the extended abstract, please follow the ACM SIGCOMM formatting guidelines, EXCEPT for the following two differences:
A. papers are limited to TWO (2) pages only, plus references. Note that the two-page limit includes ALL figures, tables but does not include references;
B. Please provide only author names and affiliations; it is not necessary to add PAPER ID and number of pages. Submissions must not be anonymous.
Submission deadline (hard): 15 March 2019
Notification: 31 March 2019
Final version: 15 April 2019
Workshop (tentative): 06 May 2019
