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. A further tradition of IEEE LANMAN 2016 consists in identifying, every year, a central theme that is of current interest in our field. This year, the symposium’s central theme is Adaptive, Agile and Fluid networking, a broad topic encompassing autonomic and reconfigurable networking, network function virtualization and software defined networking. This theme reflects recent disruptive innovations in data center networks, enterprise networks, and edge cloud networks. Internet-of-Things is another aspect of the theme to identify new technologies and architectures to support various requirements from different industry sectors, such as smart cities combined with data analytics.
The intimate single-track session format of the symposium encourages stimulating exchanges between researchers. The symposium is expected to be a forum for discussion of new and interdisciplinary ideas on architectures, algorithms, service models, pricing, and performance. Speculative and potentially transformative ideas are particularly encouraged, as are studies reporting measurements from real-life networks and test-beds. Papers are solicited on any LANMAN topic including, but not limited to, the following topics:
We are soliciting technical demonstrations showing innovative and original research both from academia and industry. IEEE LANMAN 2016 is interested in demonstrations of technologies that exhibit important research issues and findings, or gives new vista of realistic and novel applications relating to the same scope of topics of IEEE LANMAN 2016.
Authors want to exhibit a Demo must submit a short paper (2-page maximum) describing the Demo. It will be indexed by IEEE-Xplore and will be distributed with the official symposium proceedings. Authors must be present during the Demo session. No show will preclude publication in IEEE-Xplore. Please consult the Demo Chair (see contacts below) if you are uncertain whether your demo falls within the scope of the symposium. IEEE LANMAN 2016 will present a Best Demo Award to an outstanding demonstration in this category.
