**** Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this message ****


NetSys 2015
2nd International Conference on Networked Systems

Cottbus, Germany, March 9-13, 2015

* Registration is open now:
* Early registration deadline: January 31st, 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 founded more than 30 years
ago. In 2013 NetSys was first organized on an international scale in
Stuttgart. NetSys is organized by the special interest group
"Communication and Distributed Systems" (KUVS) of the German
Informatics Society (GI).

NetSys 2015 is sponsored by GI and VDE-ITG.
The conference receives Technical Co-Sponsorship from the IEEE.
