IEEE International Symposium on Local and Metropolitan Area Networks
1-3 July 2019 // Paris, France

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. Papers are solicited in all areas of networking, but in keeping with the heritage of this event, this symposium’s central theme is Networking the Intelligent Edge. The intelligent edge focuses on low-latency applications and services that can also provide compute capabilities close to where the service is delivered. Several vertical markets require services close to the edge with reliable and low-latency networking and the ability to determine how the different components of a service are multiplexed and delivered to the end-consumer.

The intimate single-track format of the symposium encourages stimulating exchanges between researchers. The event is expected to be a forum for discussion of new and interdisciplinary ideas on architectures, 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 topic in networking, including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Active queue management
  • Context-aware networking
  • Energy efficiency for local and metropolitan area networking
  • Fog and edge computing
  • Group communications
  • In-network caching
  • In-network processing
  • Information security for local and metropolitan area networking
  • Intelligent edge applications
  • Intelligent routing and forwarding
  • Internet-of-Things
  • Load-aware packet forwarding
  • Machine-to-machine communications
  • Multi-path transport
  • Named data networking
  • Network and transport mechanisms for latency reduction
  • Network virtualization in local and metropolitan area
  • Packet scheduling
  • Performance for local and metropolitan area networking
  • Reliable transport in heterogeneous access networks
  • Resilience for local and metropolitan area networking
  • Software-defined networking in local and metropolitan area
  • Vehicular communications

IEEE LANMAN 2019 solicits paper submissions of Regular Papers (up to 6 pages) and Short Papers (up to 2 pages). Short papers will be presented in a poster session. Also, some of regular paper submissions may be accepted as short papers by the TPC. The page limits include all figures, tables, and references. All papers must be electronically submitted in PDF according to the guidelines in the symposium website . The proceedings will be published in IEEE Xplore and will include both short and regular papers presented at the workshop. A Best Paper Award will be given to the paper(s) with the highest technical merit.

All IEEE LANMAN 2019 technical papers and posters must be associated with an author registration at the full rate. For authors presenting multiple papers/posters, one full registration is valid for up to three papers/posters. IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper/poster from distribution after the workshop (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper/poster is not presented at the workshop.
