The 14th ACM/IEEE Symposium on Architectures for Networking and 
Communications Systems

ANCS 2018


ACM/IEEE ANCS, will be held July 23-24, 2017, at Ithaca, New York, USA, 
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 network architectures (e.g., data center networks, 
WAN, 5G)
* Networked-systems architectures
* SDN/NFV architectures and systems
* Converged architectures (network, compute, memory and storage)
* Hardware/software co-design for networking, including arising issues
* Reconfigurable and programmable architectures
* Network security techniques, architectures, and devices
* Network measurement techniques, tools, architectures, and devices
* Accelerators, offload engines and Single-chip networking elements
* Energy efficient designs

The conference will put an emphasis on the applicability and feasibility 
of proposed solutions, and will prioritize implementation-led and 
measurement-based submissions. Authors are invited to include artifacts 
and data sets as part of their submission, and those would be looked 
favorably by the committee.


Abstract submission: April 2, 2018
Full paper submission: April 9, 2018
Notification of acceptance: May 17, 2018

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 
Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings (Dec. 20, 2017: 
https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template). All material on 
each page should fit within a rectangle of 18 × 23.5 cm (7" × 9.25"), 
centered on the page, beginning 1.9 cm (0.75") from the top of the page 
and ending with 2.54 cm (1") from the bottom. The right and left margins 
should be 1.9 cm (.75"). The text should be in two 8.45 cm (3.33") 
columns with a .83 cm (.33") gutter.
