Call for Papers

IEEE LANMAN has an established tradition as a forum for presenting and discussing the latest technical advances in local and metropolitan area networking. Cutting-edge papers spanning both theory and experimentation are solicited in all areas of networking. Papers are solicited in all areas of networking, but in keeping with the heritage of this event, this symposium’s central theme is “Ultra-broadband wireless networks: 5G and beyond”.
Ultra-broadband wireless networks, that can utilize emerging communication technologies such as mmWave and THz communications, offer a tremendous opportunity for unprecedented data rates and low latency at the physical layer over short distances and network layer goodputs that are orders of magnitude greater than current wireless networks. At the same time, they raise numerous challenges – such as positioning, localization, intermittency – that impact networking, communication, and hardware design, often requiring cross-layer approaches to solve them.

The intimate single-track format of the symposium encourages stimulating exchanges between researchers. The event is expected to be a forum for discussion of new and interdisciplinary ideas on network access protocols, network management and control, services and applications, performance related to IoT for smart cities. Speculative and potentially transformative ideas are particularly encouraged, as are studies reporting measurements from real-life networks and testbeds. Papers are solicited on any topic in networking, including, but not limited to, the following:
• Cross-layer design for mmWave and THz communication
• Networking challenges with directional and LoS technologies
• Networking protocols and architectures for the IoTs
• Machine-to-machine communications
• Cloud, edge and fog computing integration
• Co-existence and heterogeneity support at the edge (HetNets)
• Energy efficiency for local and metropolitan area networking
• Information security for local and metropolitan area networking
• Intelligent routing and forwarding
• Named data networking
• Network and transport mechanisms for latency reduction
• Network virtualization in local and metropolitan area
• Packet scheduling
• Performance for local and metropolitan area networking
• Resilience and reliability for local and metropolitan area networking
• Software-defined networking in local and metropolitan area

IEEE LANMAN 2020 solicits paper submissions of Regular Papers (up to 6 pages) and Short Papers (up to 2 pages). Short papers will be presented in a poster session. Also, some of the 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 symposium website http://www.ieee-lanman.org. The proceedings will be published in IEEE Xplore and will include both short and regular papers presented at the workshop. A Best Paper Award will be given to the paper(s) with the highest technical merit.

Kind Regards,
