CFP: ACM/IRTF Applied Networking Research Workshop 2023
9 April 2023
The ACM/IRTF Applied Networking
Research Workshop 2023 (ANRW’23),
co-located with IETF 117,
is the eigth edition of an academic workshop that provides a forum
for researchers, vendors, network operators, and the Internet standards
community to present and discuss emerging results in applied networking
The workshop combines presentations of new research in the form of
short papers and lightning papers. The ANRW accepts the following
types of submissions:
Short papers are publications that present new
research that has not been previously published. For a short paper to
be considered for publication, please submit work describing
early/emerging results in a relevant topic area. There is a 6-page
limit for short papers, including figures, tables, and any
appendices, optionally followed by unlimited additional pages for
Lightning papers can provide a summary of early,
emerging, or on-going work as well as short updates of previously
published work. This type of submission will be presented in a short,
lightning-talk style. For a lightning paper to be considered for
presentation, please submit an extended abstract that is no longer
than 2 pages, with a maximum of one additional page for references
Paper topics should be relevant to the standardization activities of
related IETF working groups or activity
in related IRTF research groups.
We note that the structure and use of the Internet, and Internet
services, are evolving in ways that would have been difficult to
anticipate two years ago. The list is long, including but not limited
to shifts in traffic patterns and demands with remote work over
broadband access networks, operational responses to large-scale
physical and socio-political events, also trends towards increased
multiplexing of connections over fewer IP addresses for various reasons
that include scale, adaptability, and privacy.
Development and deployment experience of new or enhanced Internet
protocols (e.g., for transport, security, or routing).
Improvements, measurements, and analysis of the security and privacy of
new and existing Internet protocols and privacy enhancing technologies.
Evolution of interconnection, and new approaches on network management,
operations, and control.
Practical congestion control for heterogeneous networks and novel
Better ways of specifying protocols, including usable techniques for
Interactions between CDNs, anycast, and edge services such as DNS and
Research and analysis of consolidation and centralization of the Internet.
Techniques for logging/monitoring of Internet traffic and root-cause
analysis, as well as debugging of (encrypted) Internet protocols.
Measurement and analysis of the performance of networks, including the
performance or quality of experience of networked applications.
Design, measurement, analysis, or deployment of wireless, mobile, and
Internet resilience and recovery in physically challenging environments
and events (e.g., remote areas, natural disaster situations).
Approaches and efforts towards decentralizing and democratizing the
Understanding the impact and interoperability of diverse clients (e.g.,
IoT, robotics, manufacturing).
The changing semantics of IP addresses and connection-level metadata at
large-scale (e.g. Addressing Agility, Private Relay).
Topics relevant to the standardization activities of related
IETF working groups.
Topics relevant to activity in related IRTF research groups.
ANRW’23 particularly encourages the submission of results that could
form the basis for future engineering work in the IETF, by e.g.,
providing input and analysis on Internet protocols or operational
Internet practice, as well as influence further research and
experimentation in the IRTF. ANRW’23 is sponsored by
ACM SIGCOMM and the
Internet Research Task Force (IRTF).
The Call for Papers
provides full details and submission instructions. The submission
deadline is 12 May 2023.
