Call for Student Posters/Demos


The IFIP Networking 2018 program will include a student poster and demo session, co-located so as to maximise visibility and interactions with the conference audience.
This session aims at providing a platform for undergraduate, graduate and PhD students in the broad areas of computer and communication networks to present their (early) research results. Posters are especially suited for presenting controversial research directions that may generate discussion, or promising ideas not yet fully validated through complete extensive evaluation. Demonstrations are targeted to showcase prototypes with media, models, or live hardware/software demonstrators.

Poster/demo papers must fit in two pages and follow the standard IEEE two-column format with 10-point fonts. All poster/demo paper submissions must be written in English. The title of the paper must begin with either "Poster:" or "Demo:". Optionally, a poster paper submission can also include a link to the electronic copy of the poster. Authors of the demo papers are strongly encouraged to include a link to a short video presenting their prototype. Electronic copies of posters and demo videos shall be hosted by a third-party cloud storage or streaming service (e.g., Dropbox, Wetransfer, YouTube, Vimeo, etc.), so as to ensure the anonymity of reviewers.

If the submission is accepted, the student is required to attend the special poster/demo session at IFIP Networking 2018 to present it.
Poster/Demo abstracts will be made available online through the IFIP Networking website, but will not appear in the proceedings, and thus authors retain the copyright of their work with complete freedom to submit their work elsewhere (before or after the conference).
Topics of interest are same as for the main conference and they include:

  • Network Architectures, Applic
  • Nations and ServicesNetwork
  • Modeling and Analysis
  • Network security and privacyWireless networking
