[DMANET] NetSys 2013 - Final Call for Papers


International Conference on Networked Systems 2013
March 11-15, 2013, Stuttgart, Germany

The Conference on Networked Systems (NetSys 2013) provides an international
forum for engineers and scientists in academia, industry, and government to
discuss innovations in the realm of networked systems - including aspects of
networking, distributed systems, communications, middleware, and
applications. This biennial conference is the major scientific event on
networked systems in German-speaking countries and belongs to a series of
conferences (Kommunikation in Verteilten Systemen, KiVS) that was founded
more than 30 years ago. Conference Proceedings will be submitted to IEEE's
digital library IEEE Xplore(R).

We invite submissions on a wide range of networked systems, including but
not limited to:

* Network architectures and protocols
* Transport- and application-layer protocols
* Peer-to-peer and overlay networks
* Mobile, ad-hoc, opportunistic, and sensor networks
* Datacenter and storage area networks
* Middleware architectures and platforms for networked systems
* System issues for middleware
* Middleware for mobile and ubiquitous computing, web services, and SOA
* Middleware for embedded networked systems
* Cloud computing
* Emerging networked applications
* Online social networks
* Cyber-physical systems, smart grid
* Virtualization in networked systems
* Security and privacy in networked systems
* Resource management and quality of service
* Methods for design, implementation, and analysis of networked systems
* Management of networked systems
* Economic aspects of networked systems

For NetSys 2013 we especially encourage the submission of papers focusing on
the techniques and applications of virtualization in networked systems.

Separate, workshops, tutorials, demonstrator presentations, an industrial
track, and a doctoral forum will complement the technical sessions. See
www.netsys2013.de for details.
