### CALL FOR PAPERS -- ANCS 2014 ###

The 10th ACM/IEEE Symposium on Architectures
for Networking and Communications Systems


October 20-21, 2014
Marina del Rey, California

Sponsored by:
ACM Special Interest Group on Computer Architecture (SIGARCH)
ACM Special Interest Group on Communications (SIGCOMM)
IEEE Computer Society Tech. Committee on Computer Architecture (TCCA)


ANCS 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. This includes
both experimental and theoretical analysis. To recognize and foster
the increasing importance of research into the co-design of computer
and network systems, the conference also places an emphasis on systems
issues arising from the interaction of computer and network


General Chair:
Viktor K. Prasanna,  University of Southern California, USA

Program Chairs:
Gordon Brebner,  Xilinx, USA
Isaac Keslassy,  Technion, Israel

ANCS 2014 will use single-blind reviewing, so papers should include
authors' names.

Submit papers using a 10pt font on 12pt leading formatted for printing
on Letter-sized (8.5" by 11") paper. Paper text blocks must follow ACM
guidelines: double-column, with each column 9.25" by 3.33", 0.33"
space between columns. Each column must contain no more than 55 lines
of text. Latex and Word templates, and additional submission
requirements, are available via (http://www.ancsconf.org). ANCS
submissions must be no longer than 12 pages. The PC may choose to
reject any paper that violates these format requirements, and no
deadline extensions will be allowed for re-formatting.

We encourage submissions containing original ideas that are relevant
to the scope of ANCS. Like other conferences, ANCS requires that
papers not be submitted simultaneously to any other conferences or
publications; that submissions not be previously published in
peer-reviewed conferences; and that accepted papers not be
subsequently published elsewhere. Papers describing work that was
previously published in a peer-reviewed workshop are allowed, if the
authors clearly describe what significant new content has been
included.  All submissions will be treated as confidential prior to
publication in the proceedings; rejected submissions will be
permanently treated as confidential.


The deadline for abstract submission is May 14, 2014 at 11:59PM PDT.
The deadline for full paper submission is May 21, 2014 at 11:59PM PDT.
There will be no extensions.

Notification of Acceptance: July 14, 2014

The Program Committee may choose to accept certain papers
conditionally, based on a shepherding process.


ANCS 2014 will include a poster session. Submission deadlines and
guidelines will be announced at a later date on the conference web
site (http://www.ancsconf.org/).
