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:

IEEE LANMAN 2015 solicits paper submissions of Regular Papers (up to 6 pages) and Short Papers (up to 2 pages). The short papers will be presented in a poster session. Also, some of regular paper submissions may be accepted as short papers by the TPC. The page limits include all figures, tables, and references. All papers must be electronically submitted in PDF according to the guidelines in the workshop website The proceedings will be published by IEEE Xplore and will include both short and regular papers presented at the workshop. Best Paper Award will be given to the paper(s) with the highest technical merit. Selected papers will be invited for submission and fast track review by Elsevier Computer Communications Journal. The paper submission site is

All IEEE LANMAN 2015 technical papers and posters must be associated with an author registration at the full rate. For authors presenting multiple papers/posters, one full registration is valid for up to three papers/posters.
