> July 22, 2019
> Montreal, Canada
> The ACM and IRTF Applied Networking Research Workshop 2019 (ANRW ’19) is 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 research. The workshop offers an opportunity for academics to transition research back into IETF standards and protocols and to find inspiration from topics and open problems discussed at the IETF. The workshop will consist of a mix of invited talks, submitted talks, and submitted short papers.
> Submitted talks are not-for-publication resubmissions of works that have been published elsewhere during the last 12 months. The goal here is to increase impact of previously published work. For a talk to be considered for presentation, please submit an extended abstract that is no longer than 2 pages.
> 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.
> ANRW ’19 particularly encourages the submission of results that could form the basis for future engineering work in the IETF, that could help better specify Internet protocols, that could change operational Internet practices, or that could influence further research and experimentation in the IRTF. ANRW ‘19 is sponsored by ACM SIGCOMM, and the Internet Research Task Force (IRTF).
> Topics of Interest include, but are not limited to, applied work in the following areas:
> Development and deployment of new and improved transport protocols, secure protocols, routing protocols
> Measurement and analysis of existing and new transport protocols, secure protocols, and routing protocols
> Practical congestion control for heterogeneous networks and novel applications
> Improvements to the security and privacy of Internet protocols
> Measuring and understanding the behavior and transparency of the Internet, including censorship
> Deployment and evolution of DNS, CDNs, anycast, and other wide-area services
> Measurements and analysis of wide-area privacy risks and remediation
> Approaches and efforts towards decentralizing and democratizing the Internet
> Internet access in challenging environments
> Protocols and APIs for new Internet applications
> Better ways of specifying protocols, including usable techniques for protocol verification
> Evolution of interconnection, and network management practices
> Integration of programmable networking into the wide area
> Interactions between emergent applications and existing network deployments
> Approaches for wide-area monitoring, root-cause analysis, and debugging
> New approaches to network management, operations, and control
> Topics relevant to the standardization activities of related IETF working groups
> Topics relevant to activity in related IRTF research groups.
> Submission Types
> ANRW ’19 accepts two types of submissions: talks and short papers. Submissions are not anonymous. Authors of accepted talks and short papers may also bring a poster presenting its content to the workshop, for display and more in-depth discussion with interested participants during the breaks.
> Talks:
> Talk submissions are not-for-publication resubmissions of works that have been published elsewhere during the last 12 months. They may contain up to two pages of technical content, including figures, tables, appendices, optionally followed by unlimited additional pages for references and acknowledgements only. The two page limit is strictly enforced, even a single line exceeding two pages will lead to rejection without review. We expect talk submissions to describe the research at a high enough level to assess whether a talk on the topic would be suitable for the audience. Authors may also optionally attach the published paper or technical report backing the submission; this attachment is for reference only and may not be reviewed.
> Accepted talks can be presented without publication; however, authors can publish their extended abstract in the ACM Digital Library if desired.
> Short papers:
> Short paper submissions are suitable for short position papers, for starting a discussion on new technical ideas, to present very early results, or to present other topics of interest to the community (software and tools, research initiatives or collaborative projects, major new funding vessels, etc.). They may contain up to six pages of content including figures, tables, and any appendices, optionally followed by a unlimited additional pages for references and acknowledgments only.
> Accepted short papers will be presented during the workshop, and will be published in the ACM Digital Library.
> Paper Novelty
> An accepted talk that is not published can be based on previously published work, or can describe work currently under submission to another venue.
> An accepted paper that is published must not be based on previously published work, and cannot describe work that is currently under submission to another venue. An accepted paper that is published also must not plagiarize the work of its authors or of any other authors. The ACM Policy and Procedures on Plagiarism applies to the ANRW, and action will be taken against submitters who have engaged in such practices.
> Papers accompanied by nondisclosure agreement requests will not be considered for review or publication, nor ever be disclosed.
> Formatting
> All submissions must satisfy the following requirements:
> Short papers: up to 6 pages for technical content (including appendices) + unlimited pages for references and acknowledgements.
> Submitted talks: up to 2 pages for technical content + unlimited pages references and acknowledgements. Authors may optionally provide an attachment for reference purposes that will not be reviewed.
> 10-point font for main text; font used in other places (e.g., figures) should be no smaller than 9 point
> Two-column format, with the size of each column being at most 3.33 x 9.25 inches and the space between columns being at least 0.33 inches letter page size (8.5 x 11 inches)
> Include names and affiliations of all authors on the title page (no anonymization).
> Submissions that do not comply with these requirements will be rejected without review. It is your responsibility to ensure that your submission satisfies the above requirements. If you are using LaTeX, you can make use of this template for ACM conference proceedings. Unlike the official template, it only includes an example for conference proceedings. Note that you must change from the default 9-point format to 10-point text.
> Reviews
> All submissions will be peer reviewed (single-blind). Reviews will be shared with the authors.
> Authors and TPC members provide conflict-of-interest information. It is important that all authors of a submission are indicated in the submission system and that all authors enter any conflicts of interest. Broadly, a conflict of interest exists when:
> You are currently employed at the same organization, have been previously employed at the same organization within the last twelve months, or are going to begin employment at the same organization.
> You have a past or present professional relationship, such as thesis advisement, collaboration on a project, publication, or grant proposal within the past two years.
> These are examples – use your own good judgment.
