ANCS 07 – Call for Papers

One of my favourite conferences ANCS has just issued a call for papers. I woulld recommend the conference to anybody who is interested in in network processor or packet processing switch design. Patrick Crowley et al continue to deliver a high calibre event that will be attended by the leading researchers in the area of system on chip design and implementation.
The 3rd ACM/IEEE Symposium on Architectures
for Networking and Communications Systems
December 3-4, 2007
Orlando, Florida, USA
Sponsored by:
ACM Special Interest Group on Computer Architecture (SIGARCH) ACM Special Interest Group on Communications (SIGCOMM) IEEE Computer Society Tech. Committee on Computer Architecture IEEE Communications Society Tech. Committee on Computer Communications
Paper registration and abstract: July 9, 2007
Submission deadline: July 16, 2007
Author notification: September 26, 2007
ANCS is a research conference that focuses on the architecture and design of hardware and software for modern communication networks. The combination of increasing network bandwidth and expanding functionality pose continuing and growing challenges for system designers. New technology elements, including network processors, content addressable memories, configurable logic and special-purpose components offer new opportunities for meeting these challenges, but also raise a variety of new issues. ANCS focuses on networking and communication in the broad sense, including novel architectures, architectural support for advanced communications systems, algorithms and protocols for advanced architectures, software and applications for next-generation networking architectures, and methodology and benchmarking for evaluating advanced communication architectures. Our emphasis this year will be on hardware and software elements in the context of systems that enable networks to evolve and scale.
Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
* System design for future Network Architectures
* Network/communications processors
* Intelligent co-processors
* Router architectures
* Emerging Technologies (e.g., optical components, etc.)
* Switch fabrics/interconnection networks
* Link scheduling, processor/thread scheduling, switch scheduling
* Network adapters
* Application-specific networks (e.g., SAN, XML Switching)
* Programmable /extensible networks
* Secure communication
* Traffic management
* Packet classification
* Content inspection and filtering
* Energy-efficient designs
The PAPER DEADLINE for submissions is July 16, 2007 at 11:59PM PST (US). ANCS will use double-blind reviewing, so submitted papers should not include the authors’ names.
