2nd Asia-Pacific Workshop on Networking (APNet 2018)

              August 2-3 2018, Beijing, China



The Second Asia-Pacific Workshop on Networking (APNet’18) aims to bring together the very best researchers in computer networking and systems across the Asia-Pacific region and the global community to a live forum discussing and debating innovative ideas at their early stages. The mission of APNet is that promising but not-yet-mature ideas can receive timely feedback from experienced researchers, shaping them into major conferences such as SIGCOMM, NSDI, SOSP, OSDI, MobiCom, CoNEXT and so on.


We invite submissions of short papers (up to 6 pages, including references) on a wide range of networking research, including, but not limited to:


• Network architectures and algorithms

• Cloud and wide-area networking systems & infrastructure

• Networking support for applications

• Operating system support for networking

• Kernel-bypass and RDMA networking and applications

• Enterprise, datacenter, and storage area networks

• SDN, NFV, and network programming

• Networking hardware design

• Network measurement, monitoring, diagnosis, and operations

• Formal methods and network verification

• Network security and privacy, censorship, transparency

• Network, transport, and application-layer protocols

• Resource management, QoS, and signaling

• Routing, traffic engineering, switching, and addressing

• Wireless, mobile, and sensor networking


The APNet Program Committee will select papers based on novelty, significance, and technical merit, rather than completeness. Innovative well-reasoned ideas with preliminary evaluations will suffice for APNet. Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library. We hope that the extension of APNet papers, when substantiated by solid implementation and experimentation, can be published at the aforementioned premier conferences.
