NetSys 2015
2nd International Conference on Networked Systems

Cottbus, Germany, March 9-13, 2015

The Conference on Networked Systems (NetSys 2015) provides an
international forum for engineers and scientists in academia, industry,
and government to discuss recent innovations in the realm of networked
systems – including aspects of networking, distributed systems,
communications, middleware, and applications. NetSys is a biennial
conference that originates from the major scientific event on networked
systems in German-speaking countries KiVS (Kommunikation in Verteilten
Systemen) – a series of conferences that was initiated 35 years ago. In
2013, NetSys was first organized on international scale in Stuttgart.
NetSys is organized by the special interest group "Communication and
Distributed Systems" (KUVS), which is anchored both in the German
Computer Science society (Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI)) and in the
Information Technology society (Informationstechnische Gesellschaft im
VDE (ITG)). The conference proceedings will be submitted to IEEE
Xplore (R).

NetSys solicits submission of high-quality, original scientific papers
presenting novel research on the wide range of networked systems,
including but not limited to:

* Network architectures and protocols
* Transport- and application-layer protocols
* Emerging networked applications
* Peer-to-peer and overlay networks
* Software-defined networking
* SOA, Web services, and mobile services
* Cloud computing
* Virtualization in networked systems
* Social networks
* Internet of Things
* Cyber-physical systems
* Smart grid
* Cyber security and privacy
* Mobile, ad-hoc, opportunistic, vehicular and sensor networks
* Middleware architectures and platforms for networked systems
* Methods for design, implementation, and analysis of networked systems

Separate workshops, tutorials, demonstrator presentations, and a
doctoral forum will complement the technical sessions.

Important Dates:
* Paper Registration: August, 25th, 2014
* Paper Submission: September 1st, 2014
* Author Notification: November 8th, 2014
