The second edition of the ACM, IRTF & ISOC Applied Networking Research Workshop 2017 (ANRW’17) is an academic workshop that provides a forum for researchers, vendors, network operators and the Internet standards community to present and discuss emerging results in applied networking research. It is sponsored by ACM SIGCOMM, the Internet Research Task Force (IRTF) and the Internet Society (ISOC).
Researchers should consider submitting early/emerging results that illustrate the scientific and engineering principles underlying the Internet architecture, protocols and applications; that demonstrate new capabilities, features, or extensions to the Internet protocol layers; that enhance our understanding of how Internet protocols work in real-world deployments or realistic test-beds; or that improve Internet security and privacy, scalability, performance, and robustness.
The ANRW’17 particularly encourages the submission of results that could form the basis for future engineering work in the IETF, that could change operational Internet practices, that can help better specify Internet protocols, or that could influence further research and experimentation in the IRTF.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, applied work in the following areas:
The ANRW accepts two types of submissions: full papers and short papers.
Full paper submissions describe original research on the topics above and may contain up to six pages of technical content, including figures, tables, appendices, etc. plus unlimited pages for references and acknowledgements only. The six page limit is strictly enforced, even a single line exceeding six pages will lead to rejection without review. We expect full papers to contain at least a preliminary evaluation.
Accepted full papers will be presented and discussed in depth at the workshop, and will be published in the ACM Digital Library.
Short paper submissions are suitable for short position papers, for starting a discussion on new technical ideas, to present very early results, or to present other topics of interest to the community (software and tools, research initiatives or collaborative projects, major new funding vessels, etc.). They may contain up to two pages of content including figures, tables, any appendices, etc., optionally followed by a single additional page for references and acknowledgments only.
Accepted short papers will be briefly presented during the workshop, and will be published in the ACM Digital Library.
Authors of accepted short papers should also bring a poster presenting its content to the workshop, for display and more in-depth discussion with interested participants during the breaks.
Under no circumstances should authors submit previously published work, submit the same work simultaneously to multiple venues, or submit papers that plagiarize the work of other authors. The ACM Policy and Procedures on Plagiarism applies to the ANRW, and action will be taken against submitters who have engaged in such practices.
Papers accompanied by nondisclosure agreement requests will not be considered for review or publication, nor ever be disclosed.
Submissions of both types (full papers and short papers) must be formatted according to the ACM SIG proceedings templates, using the default 9pt font.
All submissions will be peer reviewed (single-blind). Reviews will be shared with the authors.
Authors and TPC members provide conflict-of-interest information. It is important that all authors of a submission are indicated in the submission system and enter any conflicts-of-interest. Broadly, a conflict of interest exists when:
