Third Workshop on

Hot Topics in Networks


November 15-16, 2004

San Diego, CA USA

HotNets III Flyer (doc) 



The Third Workshop on Hot Topics in Networks, HotNets-III, will bring 
together researchers in the networking and distributed systems community 
to debate emerging research directions. The goal of the workshop is to 
promote community-wide discussion of ideas that will influence and 
foster continued research in the field. The workshop will provide a 
venue for researchers to present new ideas that have the potential to 
significantly impact the community in the long term, especially those 
that are architectural or design-oriented in nature.

Each potential participant should submit a short paper describing such 
an idea; the paper could, for example, expose a new problem, advocate a 
new solution, or debunk existing work. Attendance is limited to around 
60 participants, by invitation based primarily on paper submissions. 
HotNets-III is sponsored by ACM SIGCOMM and supported by Intel Research 
and Cisco Systems.

We encourage submissions across the broad range of networking and 
distributed systems research, not limited to those topics covered by the 
SIGCOMM conference. Submissions may be on topics traditionally published 
at SIGCOMM, NSDI, SOSP/OSDI, SenSys, or MobiCom, or they may be on 
topics that have yet to find a home in an established conference. Topics 
of interest include, but are by no means limited to:

    * Internet architecture, past, present, and future
    * Overlay, peer-to-peer, and programmable network infrastructures
    * Sensor networks, storage area networks, and other examples of
      "extreme" networking
    * Wireless networks, mobility, and pervasive computing
    * Network fault-tolerance, reliability, and security
    * Network configuration, diagnosis, and resource management
    * Novel distributed applications and services, including systems for
      content distribution and real-time media.
    * Lessons drawn from failed research, and controversial or
      disruptive topics
    * Architectural insights or understanding of network behaviors

The selection of HotNets papers will be based primarily on their 
potential to influence future research. This influence can be exercised 
in many ways, exemplified by but not limited to the following:

    * Describing a novel approach to an old problem that promises to
      influence future research
    * Describing a new problem that requires our attention
    * Articulating a new perspective about networking and distributed
    * Debunking an old perspective about networking and distributed systems

Copies of the accepted papers will be made publicly available via the 
Web prior to the workshop. Proceedings will be distributed at the 
workshop and will be made available through ACM's digital library. 
Examples of papers from past HotNets workshops can be found at: 
http://www.acm.org/sigs/sigcomm/hotnets. The Program Committee plans to 
write short New York Times Book Review-style reviews of accepted papers, 
for inclusion in the proceedings, to provide the broader community with 
an additional perspective on future directions in the field.

      Submission Instructions

Submitted papers must be no longer than 6 pages (10 pt font, 1 inch 
margins). Only electronic submissions in PostScript or PDF will be 
accepted. Submissions must be written in English, render without error 
using standard tools (Ghostview or Acrobat Reader) and print on 
US-Letter sized paper. All submissions will be acknowledged within 24 
hours of receipt.

Submission information will be available at:
