The 15th ACM/IEEE Symposium on Architectures for Networking and

Communications Systems (ANCS ’19).




ACM/IEEE ANCS will be held 24th and 25th of September, 2019 in Cambridge, UK,

and is the premier forum for presenting and discussing original research that

explores the relationship between the algorithms and architectures of data

communication networks and the hardware and software elements from which these

networks are built. ANCS focuses on architectures for networking and

communication in the broad sense, including novel architectures, architectural

support for advanced communication, algorithms and protocols for advanced

architectures, software and applications for next-generation networking

architectures, co-design of computer and network systems, and methodology

and benchmarking for evaluating advanced communication architectures.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Wired and wireless communications systems architectures

* Domain-specific languages for networked systems

* Networked system architectures

* SDN/NFV systems architectures

* Converged system architectures (network, computation, memory and storage)

* Architectures for in-network computing systems

* Hardware/software co-design for networked systems architectures

* Architectures supporting reconfigurable and programmable networked systems

* Architectures for network security

* Architectures for network measurement

* Measurements of networked systems architectures

* Measurements of communications architectures

* Architectures for accelerators, offload engines and single-chip networking elements

* Architectures and experiences for energy efficient networked systems design


The conference seeks an emphasis on the applicability and feasibility of approach,

and will prioritize implementation and measurement-led submissions. Authors are

invited to include artifacts and data sets as part of their submission, and

those would be looked favourably by the committee. Submissions are double blind

(details http://www.ancsconf.org).



Abstract submission deadline: July 7th, 2019

Full paper submission deadline: July 15th, 2019

Author notification: August 9th, 2019



This year ANCS welcomes submissions of long and short papers. Long

papers are the more traditional and complete form to present technical

work, and should be no more than 12 pages (excluding references). Long

papers may also be extended versions of previously-published short

preliminary papers (such as workshop papers), as long as they are in

accordance with published SIGCOMM policy


Short papers are the preferred vehicle for contributions whose novelty

and impact show the same technical excellence, and whose description

fits within 6 pages (excluding references). Short papers will be

reviewed with a more open mind towards criticizing the scope of

evaluation or broadness of topics impacted than the long papers. Note

that position papers, critiques of networking research, and ideas that

are not yet fully complete or evaluated are not a good fit for ANCS.

Papers accompanied by nondisclosure agreement requests will not be

considered nor ever disclosed.

Submitted papers should be no more than 12 pages (excluding references)

for long papers, and no more than 6 pages (excluding references) for

short papers. The papers should follow the 10pt template at: ACM Master

Article Template (https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template).
