The Third Workshop on ns-3
March 25th, 2010
The Workshop on ns-3 (WNS3) is a one day workshop held in conjunction
with the Fourth International Conference on Simulation Tools and
Techniques (SIMUTools 2011).
The workshop will take place on March 25th, 2010, in Barcelona, Spain.
The objective of the workshop is to gather ns-3 users and developers,
together with networking simulation practitioners and users and
developers of other network simulation tools, to discuss about the ns-3
simulator and related activities.
CALL FOR PAPERS
After two successful editions, which gathered users and developers for
highly interactive and lively discussions but without a formal
publication track, this year the workshop will feature a peer-reviewed
paper track, thus allowing presenters to get formal credit for their
contribution. Papers will be available in the digital library
collection arranged by the main conference track (more details to be
provided at a later date).
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
* new models, devices, protocols and applications for ns-3
* frameworks for the definition and automation of ns-3 simulations
* post-processing and statistical analysis tools for ns-3
* speed and scalability issues for ns-3
* validation of ns-3 models
* credibility and reproducibility issues for ns-3 simulations
* integration of ns-3 with testbeds, emulators, and other
simulators or tools
* real code integration with ns-3
As a general rule, papers presenting enhancements to ns-3 and/or
innovative ways of using ns-3 that could be beneficial to the ns-3
community are considered to be within the scope of the workshop. Papers
that just present simulation results obtained without any significant
modification to the ns-3 simulator will be considered out of scope and
rejected. Please do not hesitate to contact the workshop chairs if you
have any question regarding the scope of your submission.
Submission deadline : November 24, 2010
Notification of acceptance : January 19, 2011
Camera-ready deadline : February 8, 2011
Paper Submission Guidelines:
Papers must be written in English and must not exceed 8 pages. Authors
should submit papers through EasyChair
(http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wns3) in PDF format,
complying with the ACM conference proceedings format. Submitted papers
must not have been submitted for review or published (partially or
completely) elsewhere. Every paper will be peer-reviewed. Papers will be
accepted based on relevance, originality and amount of the contribution,
as well as quality of the writing and presentation. At least one author
of each accepted paper must register and present the work at the
conference. Failure to do so will result in the paper not being
published in the conference proceedings and in the digital libraries.
The copyright policy that will be used for accepted papers will be
posted as part of the author's kit at a future date.
SHORT TALKS AND DEMONSTRATIONS
In addition to the regular paper track, WNS3 will also feature sessions
dedicated to short talks and demonstrations not to be published on the
conference proceedings. The aim is to foster interactive discussions on
work in progress, new problem statements and ideas for future
development related to ns-3. More details will be announced at a future
date (the submission date will be closer to the workshop date).
NS-3 DEVELOPERS' MEETING
In addition, the ns-3 developers' meeting will be co-located with WNS3,
either on Thursday, March 24th or Saturday, March 26th. More details
will be announced in the future.
