Call for Papers

IEEE LANMAN 2013 continues the LANMAN tradition as a leading forum for discussing the latest technical advances in networking in the local and metropolitan areas, including edge applications. The LANMAN workshop seeks both theoretical and experimental contributions. Single-track presentations are planned to stimulate technical exchange among researchers and practitioners with a broad interest in networking. We expect the workshop to be a forum for discussion of new and interdisciplinary ideas on new architectures, paradigms, concepts, and economic and service models. Novel and speculative ideas are particularly encouraged. We also encourage studies based on measurements from real-life networks and testbeds. Papers are solicited on any LANMAN topic including, but not limited to, the following:

    Seamless Services

  • Broadband wireless access, including WiMAX, LTE
  • WiFi: roaming services, architectures, and performance
  • Metropolitan and residential networks and architectures including Ethernet in the first mile, EPONs, FTTx, etc.
  • IPTV, video delivery, and applications
  • SANs and storage over MANs
  • IEEE 802 standards
  • Optical WDM networks based on packet, burst, and flow switching
  • RFID protocols and performance
  • Topology adaptation, reconfigurability, routing
  • Network management related to edge networks
  • Heterogeneous wireless and ad-hoc networks
  • Ubiquitous wireless, wired, and remote access
  • Adaptive wireless networks including cognitive radios
  • Measurement, modeling, and performance evaluation
  • Cross-layer QoS, dynamic bandwidth allocation, capacity placement/provisioning
  • Network reliability and survivability
  • Network security
  • Pricing, multi-vendor interoperability
  • LAN-based and MAN-based applications (gaming, distributed computing, media distribution to and in the home, enterprise applications, ambient technology, wearable-computing)
  • Impact of sensors everywhere including homes

IEEE LANMAN 2013 solicits paper submissions of Long Papers (up to 6 pages) and Short Papers (up to 2 pages). The short papers will be presented in a poster session. Also, some of Long Paper submissions may be accepted as Short Papers by the TPC. The page limits include all figures, tables, and references. All papers must be electronically submitted in PDF according to the guidelines in the workshop website The proceedings will be published by IEEE Xplore and will include both Short and Long Papers presented at the workshop. Best Paper Award will be given to the paper(s) with the highest technical merit.

All IEEE LANMAN 2013 technical papers and posters must be associated with an author registration at the full rate. For authors presenting multiple papers/posters, one full registration is valid for up to three papers/posters. IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper/poster from distribution after the workshop (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper/poster is not presented at the workshop.
