ACM CoNEXT ‘10 – Student Workshop

Held in conjunction with The 6rd International Conference on emerging Networking EXperiments and Technologies.


The 6th ACM International Conference on emerging Networking EXperiments and Technologies (ACM CoNEXT), to be held November 30th to December 3rd on the campus of Drexel University in Philadelphia, USA, ill continue as a forum for fostering scientific and technological exchanges between various international research communities in networking. Following the success of previous years, the main conference will be preceded with a one day Student Workshop. The ACM CoNEXT 2010 Student Workshop aims to provide the opportunity for graduate students in the areas of computer networks and data communication to divulge their ongoing research efforts, even if at an early stage. The venue also represents a unique opportunity for students to network with other young researchers as well as more experienced ones, receiving constructive feedback, guidance, tips, and learning about cutting-edge research problems being tackled by the student community.

We invite submissions of abstracts of up to 2 pages from graduate students describing ongoing research work for potential presentation at the ACM CoNEXT 2010 Student Workshop. Research that addresses non-standard topics and controversial problems and approaches is of particular interest. Submission of work in an early stage is encouraged.


Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

Selected abstracts will be published in the ACM CoNEXT 2010 proceedings and authors will be required to present their work through a poster session.

PDF version of the CFP is available here.

Formatting Guidelines

Please follow the ACM CoNEXT 2010 Formatting Guidelines EXCEPT for the following two differences:

Abstracts can be submitted at:

After having submitted their abstracts, all PhD students will be asked to comment on 1 - 2 submitted abstracts. This will allow the students to see the ongoing research of the others before the workshop to facilitate discussion, feedback, and potential collaboration. These comments will not be used by the PC to select which posters appear at the workshop, and authors will be given the option to exclude their abstracts from comments by other students.
