Call For Papers
IEEE LANMAN has an established tradition as a forum for presenting and discussing the latest technical advances in local and metropolitan area networking. Cutting-edge papers spanning both theory and experimentation are solicited in all areas of networking. A further tradition of IEEE LANMAN 2016 consists in identifying, every year, a central theme among those most actual and hot in our field. This year, the symposium’s central theme is Adaptive, Agile and Fluid networking, a broad topic encompassing autonomic and reconfigurable networking, network function virtualization, software defined networking, and so on. One aspect of this theme reflects recent disruptive innovations in data center networks, enterprise networks, and edge clouds networks. Internet-of-Things hits another side of the theme to identify new technologies and architectures to support various requirements from different industry sectors, such as smart city in conjunction with data analytics.

The intimate single-track session format of the symposium encourages stimulating exchanges between researchers. The symposium is expected to be a forum for discussion of new and interdisciplinary ideas on architectures, algorithms, service models, pricing, and performance. Speculative and potentially transformative ideas are particularly encouraged, as are studies reporting measurements from real-life networks and testbeds. Papers are solicited on any LANMAN topic including, but not limited to, the following topics:


    Novel data center network architectures, technologies, and protocols
    Mobile Edge Computing and architecture innovation
    Software defined networking and network function virtualization in the network edge
    Name-to-name communications and name-based abstractions
    Energy-efficiency, reliability, resource allocation, and pricing in data centers
    Wireless access technologies (WiFi, LTE, etc) and their integration in (and extension for) 5G networks
    Performance measurement and modeling
    Impact of Internet-of-Things and Machine-to-machine communications
    Access networks for densely located users
    Wired access technologies and architectures including Ethernet in the first mile, EPONs, FTTx, etc.
    Network management related to edge networks
    Local-area and metropolitan-area network security
    LAN-based and MAN-based applications (gaming, distributed computing, media distribution to and in the home, enterprise applications, ambient technology, wearable-computing)
