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 2014 will host multiple one-day or half-day workshops in conjunction with the main conference, to be held in Raleigh, North Carolina, part of the “Research Triangle” area, on October 21-24, 2014. 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 2014 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 July 10, 2014, acceptance notification is August 2, 2014 - all dates tentative). Likewise, start, end, and 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 March 8, 2014  March 25, 2014.
