This symposium is part of ICNS 2016.

     
     

Call for Papers:

The global volume of information and contents, including multimedia, has significantly increased in the current Internet and this trend is expected to continue. The classic Internet architecture is inefficient with respect of the above, given its host-to-host communication model. Some application/service-specific solutions tried to partially solve the problems, e.g., Web caches and Content Delivery Networks (CDNs), by redirecting the clients to a nearby copy of the content file, P2P systems, enabling users to search and retrieve the content objects.

Recently, novel approaches have been proposed, like Content/Information Oriented Networking (CON/ICN), aiming to better adapt the architectures to content processing and delivery at network level. Content naming, content-based routing, name/location decoupling, content delivery, in-network caching, publish/subscribe style, etc., are new features and they also became CON/ICN research directions. However, introducing such new paradigms in the real networks is not trivial and could be expensive; therefore, different evolutionary or revolutionary roadmaps have been proposed. CON/ICN approaches in Cloud-based environments and Web-oriented networks are also topics of interest. CON - Cloud - CDN - P2P collaborative solutions seem also attractive, to produce synergy and increase efficiency and quality of content delivery.

CONNET 2015, The International Symposium on Advances in Content-oriented Networks and Systems, is dedicated to advances and challenges on the following topics.

Topics:

CON and CDN concepts and architectures
Content naming in CON
Content-based (adaptive) routing and forwarding
CON content delivery and dissemination
In-network caching policies in CON
CDN and P2P caching policies and solutions
CON specific protocols
Resources and traffic management in CON
CON multicast and mobility solutions
Media and real time content delivery and QoS assurance in CON
CON solutions for security
Energy-efficient CON networking
CON performance evaluation and scalability
Application Programming Interfaces
CON implementation and deployment in real networks: seamless or revolutionary
CON Publish/subscribe systems
CON in cloud environments
CON in SDN (Software Defined Networking) and virtualization frameworks
CON-CDN-P2P cooperation for content delivery
Content-based high level communication services
Content-based approach in special contexts: vehicular networks, Web Servers Clusters, Delay-tolerant networks

FORMATS

Only .pdf or .doc files will be accepted for paper submission. All received submissions will be acknowledged via an automated system.

Final author manuscripts will be 8.5" x 11", not exceeding 6 pages; max 4 extra pages allowed at additional cost. The formatting instructions can be found on the Instructions page. Helpful information for paper formatting can be found on the here. Latex templates are also available.

Slides-based contributions can use the corporate/university format and style.

Your paper should also comply with the additional editorial rules.

Once you receive the notification of contribution acceptance, you will be provided by the publisher an online author kit with all the steps an author needs to follow to submit the final version. The author kits URL will be included in the letter of acceptance.

We would recommend that you should not use too many extra pages, even if you can afford the extra fees. No more than 2 contributions per event are recommended, as each contribution must be separately registered and paid for. At least one author of each accepted paper must register to ensure that the paper will be included in the conference proceedings and in the digital library, or posted on the www.iaria.org (for slide-based contributions).
