ICNP 2007
15th IEEE International Conference on Network Protocols
Beijing, CHINA,October 16-19, 2007

The  ICNP  2007  conference will have a student poster session to showcase "work-in-progress". The poster session  will  provide  a great  chance for students to obtain feedback on ongoing research from knowledgeable conference attendees. The primary contribution (first author) must be from one or more students. Posters will be reviewed by members of the Poster Session Committee. At the  conference,  student posters must be presented by a student. Posters submitted to this call for papers should not be abbreviations  of published papers.

Important Dates

Electronic submission address:
Submission deadline:SEPTEMBER 7, 2007, 17:00 EDT (Hard deadline)
Notification of decisions: SEPTEMBER 14, 2007
Final version of abstracts and posters:SEPTEMBER 21,2007 (only 1 week after notification)

What  to  submit: You need to submit a two-page abstract (font at least 11pt) describing the work. The abstract should identify the key  contribution  of  the work being presented in the poster. In addition, it should describe the  particular  problem  being  addressed,  what  makes  this problem interesting or important, and what your approach is to the problem. Preference will be given to new and exciting problems as opposed to  thorough but incremental pieces of work. We recommend that  you  use  the  ACM  conference style  for  preparing  your abstract. Include the title, authors, institutional affiliations, status (student, faculty, and so  on) of each author and an email address of the contact author. In the final version of the abstract, you should also include a URL that will provide additional information about your work to the attendees.

Your abstract should not exceed the page limit  and  the  font size;  non-conforming  submissions will not be considered for review. Please remember that the abstract should be in PDF  format. Word  documents will not be accepted. 

Registration: At least one person must be registered  for  the  conference  to  present  the poster.

Accepted  posters will be published in IEEE Xplore as part of the conference proceedings of ICNP 2007.

Accepted poster authors will have a chance to  revise  their  abstract prior to printing. For the posters, we will provide poster board and equipment for mounting the posters.

What the final poster should be like:

We define a poster to be 12 pages 8.5in x11in  (letter  size)  on which  you  can  affix visually appealing material that describes your research. Alternatively you can use the space as a  continuum.  You can arrange the space and orient the poster either horizontally or vertically. You should prepare the best material (visually appealing and succinct) that effectively communicates your research problem, techniques, results, and what is novel and  im-portant about your work.
