IEEE Workshop on Local and Metropolitan Area Networks (LANMAN)

IEEE LANMAN has an established tradition as a forum for presenting and
discussing the latest technical advances in local and metropolitan area
networking. Continuing that tradition, IEEE LANMAN 2014 invites
cutting-edge papers spanning both theory and experimentation. Papers are
solicited in all areas of networking, but in keeping with the current
research trend, this workshop's central theme is data center networking.
The intimate single-track session format of the workshop encourages
stimulating exchanges between researchers. The workshop is expected to be a
forum for discussion of new and interdisciplinary ideas on architectures,
service models, pricing, and performance. Speculative and potentially
transformative ideas are particularly encouraged, as are studies reporting
measurements from real-life networks and testbeds. Papers are solicited on
any LANMAN topic including, but not limited to, the following:

Novel data center network architectures
Data center network virtualization
Energy-efficiency in data centers
Routing and transport protocols in data center networks
Software defined data center networks
Data center network pricingResource allocation in data center networks
Performance measurement and modeling of data centersInter-data center
network issues
Reliable data center networks
Broadband wireless access, including WiMAX, LTE
WiFi: roaming services, architectures, and performance
Metropolitan and residential networks and architectures including Ethernet
in the first mile, EPONs, FTTx, etc.
Network management related to edge networks
Heterogeneous wireless and ad-hoc networks
Local-area and metropolitan-area network security
LAN-based and MAN-based applications (gaming, distributed computing, media
distribution to and in the home, enterprise applications, ambient
technology, wearable-computing)
Impact of sensors everywhere including homes

IEEE LANMAN 2014 solicits paper submissions of Regular Papers (up to 6
pages) and Short Papers (up to 2 pages). The short papers will be presented
in a poster session. Also, some of regular paper submissions may be
accepted as short papers by the TPC. The page limits include all figures,
tables, and references. All papers must be electronically submitted in PDF
according to the guidelines in the workshop website
http://www.ieee-lanman.org. The proceedings will be published by IEEE
Xplore and will include both short and regular papers presented at the
workshop. Best Paper Award will be given to the paper(s) with the highest
technical merit. Selected papers will be invited for submission and fast
track review by IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing and Elsevier Computer
Communications Journal.

The paper submission site is

All IEEE LANMAN 2014 technical papers and posters must be associated with
an author registration at the full rate. For authors presenting multiple
papers/posters, one full registration is valid for up to three
papers/posters. IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper/poster from
distribution after the workshop (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the
paper/poster is not presented at the workshop.

Important dates:
Abstract Registration:  Feb 14, 2014, Friday
Paper Submission: Feb 21, 2014, Friday
Acceptance Notification:  Mar 28, 2014, Friday
Camera-ready Submission: Apr 18, 2014, Friday
