Welcome to ICNP 2013

ICNP, the IEEE International Conference on Network Protocols, is the premier conference covering all aspects of network protocol research, including design, analysis, specification, verification, implementation, and performance. ICNP 2013, the 21st annual edition, will be held in Göttingen, Germany between October 7 and 10, 2013.

ICNP 2013 will also address Information-Centric Networking (ICN) as a new theme. Papers with significant research contributions to the field of network protocols and ICN designs are solicited for submission. Papers cannot be previously published nor under review by another conference or journal. Papers containing plagiarized material will be subject to the IEEE plagiarism policy and will be rejected without review.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • All aspects of network protocol research including design, specification, verification, implementation, measurement, testing, and analysis
  • Domain-specific solutions, including protocols for network security, routing, user privacy, and network management
  • Application-layer protocols for peer-to-peer systems, social networks, and emerging systems
  • Contributions to ICN architectures, specific algorithms and protocols, as well as results from implementations and experimentations
Papers must deal specifically with aspects of network protocol research. ICNP 2013 will select an accepted full paper for the best paper award. ICNP 2013 will use a double-blind review process. Papers should adhere to the IEEE formatting requirements and should not exceed 10 pages. Authors are expected to present accepted papers at the conference, and at least one author is required to register in order for the paper to appear in the conference proceedings and the IEEE digital library.
