Call for Papers

The ACM <https://www.acm.org/>/IRTF Applied Networking Research Workshop
2024 (ANRW’24), co-located with IETF-120
<https://www.ietf.org/how/meetings/120/>, is the ninth edition of an
academic workshop that provides a forum for researchers, vendors, network
operators, and the Internet standards community to present and discuss
emerging results in applied networking research.

The workshop combines presentations of new research in the form of short
papers and lightning papers. ANRW’24 accepts the following types of

   - Short papers are publications that present new research that has not
   been previously published. For a short paper to be considered for
   publication, please submit work describing early/emerging results in a
   relevant topic area. Position papers are also welcome. There is a 6-page
   limit for short papers, including figures, tables, and any appendices,
   optionally followed by unlimited additional pages for references.
   - Lightning papers can provide a summary of early, emerging, or on-going
   work as well as short updates of previously published work. Position papers
   are also welcome. This type of submission will be presented in a short,
   lightning-talk style. For a lightning paper to be considered for
   presentation, please submit an extended abstract that is no longer than 2
   pages, with a maximum of one additional page for references only.

Paper topics are not restricted to current standardization activities of
related IETF working groups or activity in related IRTF research groups. We
welcome papers on topics the IETF/IRTF should be looking at.

We note that the structure and use of the Internet, and Internet services,
are constantly evolving. The list is long, including but not limited to
shifts in traffic patterns and demands with remote work over broadband
access networks, operational responses to large-scale physical and
socio-political events, also trends towards increased multiplexing of
connections over fewer IP addresses for various reasons that include scale,
adaptability, and privacy.

   - Development and deployment experience of new or enhanced Internet
   protocols (e.g., for transport, security, or routing).
   - Improvements, measurements, and analysis of the security and privacy
   of new and existing Internet protocols and privacy enhancing technologies.
   - Evolution of interconnection, and new approaches on network
   management, operations, and control.
   - Practical congestion control for heterogeneous networks and novel
   - Better ways of specifying protocols, including usable techniques for
   protocol verification.
   - Interactions between CDNs, anycast, and edge services such as DNS and
   - Research and analysis of consolidation and centralization of the
   - Techniques for logging/monitoring of Internet traffic and root-cause
   analysis, as well as debugging of (encrypted) Internet protocols.
   - Measurement and analysis of the performance of networks, including the
   performance or quality of experience of networked applications.
   - Design, measurement, analysis, or deployment of wireless, mobile, and
   cellular networks.
   - Internet resilience and recovery in physically challenging
   environments and events (e.g., remote areas, natural disaster situations).
   - Approaches and efforts towards decentralizing and democratizing the
   - Understanding the impact and interoperability of diverse clients
   (e.g., IoT, robotics, manufacturing).
   - The changing semantics of IP addresses and connection-level metadata
   at large-scale (e.g. Addressing Agility, Private Relay).
   - Formal verification of protocols.
   - Topics relevant to the standardization activities of related IETF
   working groups.
   - Topics relevant to activity in related IRTF research groups.

ANRW’24 is co-located with IETF-120 <https://www.ietf.org/how/meetings/120/>
in Vancouver, and takes place in the week of July 20-26, 2024. This gives
IETF as well as workshop attendees the opportunity to exchange ideas on
topics and open problems discussed at the workshop and the IETF.

ANRW’24 will be a hybrid event. Remote participation options will be
available; please contact the chairs if you intend to submit work but know
in advance that you will not be able to present the work in-person at the

ANRW’24 particularly encourages the submission of results that could form
the basis for future engineering work in the IETF, by, for example
providing input and analysis on Internet protocols or operational Internet
practices, as well as influence further research and experimentation in the


All submissions must satisfy the following requirements:

   - Short papers: up to 6 pages for technical content (including
   appendices) + unlimited pages for references
   - Lightning papers: up to 2 pages for an extended abstract (including
   appendices) + a maximum of one page for references.
   - 10-point font for main text; font used in other places (e.g., figures)
   should be no smaller than 9 point
   - Two-column format, with the size of each column being at most 3.33 x
   9.25 inches and the space between columns being at least 0.33 inches letter
   page size (8.5 x 11 inches)
   - Include names and affiliations of all authors on the title page (no
   - We strongly encourage the use of the new ACM LaTeX template, which
   satisfies these style requirements provided you specify a 10-point font
   size. The following settings should produce this output:

Submissions that do not comply with these requirements will be rejected
without review. It is your responsibility to ensure that your submission
satisfies the above requirements.
  Paper Novelty

An accepted paper that is published must not be based on previously
published work, and cannot describe work that is currently under submission
to another venue. An accepted paper that is published also must not
plagiarize the work of its authors or of any other authors.

The ACM Policy and Procedures on Plagiarism applies to the ANRW, and action
will be taken against submitters who have engaged in such practices.

Papers accompanied by nondisclosure agreement requests will not be
considered for review or publication, nor ever be disclosed.

All submissions will be peer reviewed (single-blind). Reviews will be
shared with the authors.

Authors and TPC members provide conflict-of-interest information. It is
important that all authors of a submission are indicated in the submission
system and that all authors enter any conflicts of interest. Broadly, a
conflict of interest exists when:

   - You are currently employed at the same organization, have been
   previously employed at the same organization within the last twelve months,
   or are going to begin employment at the same organization.
   - You have a past or present professional relationship, such as thesis
   advisement, collaboration on a project, publication, or grant proposal
   within the past two years.

These are examples – use your own good judgement.
  ACM <https://www.acm.org/> Policies

By submitting your article to an ACM <https://www.acm.org/> Publication,
you are hereby acknowledging that you and your co-authors are subject to
all  ACM Publications Policies,
ACM <https://www.acm.org/>’s new  Publications Policy on Research Involving
Human Participants and Subjects.
violations of this policy or any ACM <https://www.acm.org/> Publications
Policy will be investigated by ACM <https://www.acm.org/> and may result in
a full retraction of your paper, in addition to other potential penalties,
as per ACM <https://www.acm.org/> Publications Policy.

Please ensure that you and your co-authors  obtain an ORCID ID,
<https://orcid.org/register>so you can complete the publishing process for
your accepted paper. ACM <https://www.acm.org/> has been involved in ORCID
from the start and we have recently made a  commitment to collect ORCID IDs
<https://authors.acm.org/author-resources/orcid-faqs>from all of our
published authors.  The collection process has started and will roll out as
a requirement throughout 2022.  We are committed to improve author
discoverability, ensure proper attribution and contribute to ongoing
community efforts around name normalization; your ORCID ID will help in
these efforts.
