2nd International Conference on Networked Systems 2015

March 9 - 13, 2015 – Cottbus, Germany


[Call for Papers as PDF]

The Conference on Networked Systems (NetSys 2015) provides an international forum for engineers and scientists in academia, industry, and government to discuss recent innovations in the realm of networked systems – including aspects of networking, distributed systems, communications, middleware, and applications. NetSys is a biennial conference that originates from the major scientific event on networked systems in German-speaking countries KiVS (Kommunikation in Verteilten Systemen) – a series of conferences that was initiated 35 years ago. In 2013, NetSys was first organized on international scale in Stuttgart. NetSys is organized by the special interest group “Communication and Distributed Systems” (KUVS), which is anchored both in the German Computer Science society (Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI)) and in the Information Technology society (Informationstechnische Gesellschaft im VDE (ITG)). The conference proceedings will be submitted to IEEE Xplore®.

NetSys solicits submission of high-quality, original scientific papers presenting novel research on the wide range of networked systems, including but not limited to:

  • Network architectures and protocols
  • Smart grid
  • Transport- and application-layer protocols
  • Virtualization in networked systems
  • Peer-to-peer and overlay networks
  • Emerging networked applications
  • Software-defined networking
  • Social networks
  • Mobile, ad-hoc, opportunistic, vehicular and sensor networks
  • Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Middleware architectures and platforms for networked systems
  • Methods for design, implementation, and analysis of networked systems
  • SOA, Web services, and mobile services
  • Cyber-physical systems
  • Cloud computing
  • Cyber security and privacy

Separate workshops, tutorials, demonstrations, and a doctoral forum will complement the technical sessions.

Submission Guidelines

All submissions must be original, unpublished, and not considered elsewhere for publication. Papers must be 8 pages long or less, including references, figures and tables (at least 10pt font, 2-column format).

IEEE LaTeX and Microsoft Word templates, as well as formatting instructions, are available online on this website.

Contributions should be submitted electronically as PDF, using the IEEE conference publishing template, via the conference submission website:

Each paper will undergo a thorough process of peer reviews by at least three members of the technical program committee. All papers accepted in the main conference, selected workshops and the PhD forum will be included in the conference proceedings, which will be made available at the conference. Submission implies that at least one author will register and attend the conference to present the publication if the paper is accepted.
