The 16th IEEE International Conference on Network Protocols

Orlando, Florida, October 19-22, 2008



Call For Posters


ICNP 2008 will hold a student poster session to showcase "work-in-progress". The poster session will provide a great chance for students to obtain feedback on their ongoing research from knowledgeable conference attendees. The primary contributor to the work (first author) must be a student. Posters will be reviewed by members of the Poster Session Committee. At the conference, posters must be presented by a student. Posters submitted to this call for papers should not be abbreviations of published papers.




Submission deadline: August 8, 2008, (Fri 23:59 PDT)

Electronic submission address: icnp08posters@netlab.uky.edu Use Subject Line: ICNP 2008 poster submission

Notification of decisions: August 29, 2008

Final version of abstracts: September 4, 2008




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. Please use the IEEE conference proceedings style (2-column) when preparing your abstract. For each author, please include institutional affiliation and status (student, faculty, and so on) and the 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 submitted abstract should be in PDF format. Word documents will not be accepted.

Accepted poster authors will have a chance to revise their abstract prior to printing. We will distribute the abstracts to all conference attendees in addition to the conference proceedings.




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

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 important about your work. You are responsible for printing your poster and bringing it to the conference site. We will provide stands for you to mount your poster materials on.
