Description:
Design of efficient network architectures and algorithms is one of the fundamental issues in computer networking. To this end, novel analytical techniques as well as novel measurement and simulation tools are required for evaluating the behavior and performance of complex communication networks. This track provides researchers, industry professionals and practitioners a forum to present the latest results in the rapidly evolving areas of network architectures, network algorithms, performance guarantees and performance evaluation. We solicit original and unpublished research work on theoretical, analytical, measurement, and simulation aspects of network architectures, network algorithms, and performance evaluation as well as efficient methods of algorithm design that apply to various areas of networking.
