Call for Papers

IEEE LANMAN has an established tradition as a forum for presenting and discussing the latest technical advances in local and metropolitan area networking. Continuing that tradition, IEEE LANMAN 2015 invites cutting-edge papers spanning both theory and experimentation. Papers are solicited in all areas of networking, but in keeping with the current research trend, this workshop’s central theme is Software Defined Datacenters. The intimate single-track session format of the workshop encourages stimulating exchanges between researchers. The workshop is expected to be a forum for discussion of new and interdisciplinary ideas on architectures, service models, pricing, and performance. Speculative and potentially transformative ideas are particularly encouraged, as are studies reporting measurements from real-life networks and testbeds. Papers are solicited on any LANMAN topic including, but not limited to, the following:

Venue

The workshop will be held in Tsinghua University, Beijing. Beijing is the second largest Chinese city by urban population after Shanghai and is the nation's cultural and educational center. It is home to the headquarters of most high-tech companies. The Beijing Capital International Airport is the second busiest in the world by passenger traffic, and there are direct flights from most countries in the world. So the transport to the workshop will be easy for most attendees. The city's history dates back three millennia. As the last of the Four Great Ancient Capitals of China, Beijing has been the center of the country for much of the past eight centuries. The city is renowned for its opulent palaces, temples, parks and gardens, tombs, walls and gates and its art treasures and universities have made it a center of culture and art in China. The famous places of interest include the Forbidden City, the Tian'anmen (Gate of Heavenly Peace), the Great Wall of China, the Summer Palace, the Temple of Heaven, the Ming Dynasty Tombs, etc.

Beijing is a city of ancient and modern, old and young, bright and charming, hospitable and colorful. Hope you enjoy this city and LANMAN event in Beijing!
