Call for Papers
The Seventh Workshop on Hot Topics in Networks (HotNets-VII), to be
Calgary, Alberta, Canada, will bring together researchers in the
community to engage in lively discussion of future trends in networking
research and technology. The workshop, which is sponsored by ACM
provides a venue for researchers to present and discuss ideas that have
the potential to significantly influence the community in the long term;
the goal is to promote community-wide discussions of those ideas.
Each potential participant should submit a short position paper
such an idea. The paper could, for example, expose a new problem,
a new solution, or re-frame or debunk existing work.
We encourage submissions of early work, with novel and interesting
across the broad range of networking systems research. We expect that
introduced at HotNets-VII, once fully thought through, completed, and
described in a finished form, may be relevant to conferences such as
SIGCOMM, NSDI, SOSP, OSDI, SenSys, or MobiCom. Topics of interest
but are by no means limited to:
Architectural support for security or availability
Computing in the cloud: what role exists for networking research?
Ensuring the correctness of distributed protocols
Evolution of storage area networks
Lessons drawn from failed research, and controversial or disruptive
Measurement and management of metro-area WiFi networks
Networking within the modern data center
Power as a first-class design property; "green" protocols/
Protocol design for optical switching
Support for non-IP internetworking protocols
Technical aspects of and solutions to network neutrality
Third-world networking challenges
Unique challenges of massive multi-player game systems
Validation of measurement-based research: what are our standards?
Position papers will be selected based on originality, likelihood of
spawning insightful discussion and technical merit. Online copies of
accepted position papers will be made publicly available via the Web
to the workshop, and printed proceedings will be published.
a workshop summary will be published in ACM SIGCOMM's Computer
Review (CCR), widely disseminating the ideas discussed at the workshop.
Attendance will be limited to around 60 people in order to ensure an
interactive workshop atmosphere. Invitations to attend the workshop
extended according to the following priorities:
o the Program and Steering Committees, one author per paper,
and any speakers invited by the Program Committee
o co-authors of accepted and submitted papers, preferring students as
available scholarships allow
o event-sponsor representatives and additional authors of submitted
at the discretion of the Program Committee
The workshop will be held at the Rosza Centre, University of Calgary.
Hotnets-VII is sponsored by ACM SIGCOMM.
Submitted papers must be no longer than 6 pages (10 point font, 1
margins). All submissions must be blind. Submissions must not
the names or affiliations of the authors in the paper. Only
submissions in PostScript or PDF will be accepted. Submissions must
written in English, render without error using standard tools
or Acrobat Reader), and print on US-Letter sized paper. Please
your pages. HotNets-VII reviews will follow standard academic
although some rejected papers may not receive full-length reviews.
Submission information will be posted by early June at
Submissions due: July 12, 2008 (11:59pm Pacific Daylight Time)
No extensions will be granted.
Notification of acceptance: August 18, 2008
Camera-ready copy due: September 15, 2008 (11:59pm PDT)
