Call for Workshops

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 will hold multiple one-day workshops in conjunction with the main conference, to be held in Göttingen, Germany on October 7-10, 2013. We invite you to submit workshop proposals on any topic related to the main ICNP conference. ICNP workshops should focus on creating interactions among participants as well as community building.

A workshop proposal for ICNP 2013 should contain at least the following information:
  • Name and possible acronym of the workshop.
  • Motivation and rationale for the workshop.
  • Draft call-for-papers, including introduction and topics of the workshop.
  • Names and affiliations of main organizers, and a tentative composition of the committees (as complete as possible). Please indicate whether prospective committee members have been contacted and whether they have accepted the invitation. We strongly discourage speculative TPC listings.
  • Workshop format, i.e., expected number of presented papers, slot lengths, information about invited talks, panels, demonstrations, etc.
  • Expected number of participants and expected number of submissions.
  • Requirements in terms of A/V, networking, power, facilities. (Assume that nothing is provided other than a projector and a microphone.)
  • Prior history of this workshop, if any, including number of submissions, number of accepted papers, and attendee count of previous instances. If the workshop was co-located with another event in the past, please include details and a brief description why ICNP is a more appropriate venue.
Please note that the internal and external deadlines of all ICNP workshops will be synchronized, in order to streamline camera-ready processing (submission deadline is June 21, 2013, acceptance notification is August 2, 2013 and camera-ready deadline is August 16, 2013 - all dates tentative). Likewise, start and end times as well we break times on the day of the workshops are fixed. Also note that paper lengths are limited to six pages in IEEE Computer Society format.

Please submit your workshop proposals by email to by February 8, 2013.
