Technical Scope

ANCS is a systems-oriented research conference, presenting original work that explores the relationship between the architecture of modern computer networks and the architecture of the individual hardware and software elements from which these networks are built. This year's conference will particularly emphasize insight into broader systems issues in its paper selection, to recognize and foster the growth of research that lies at the intersection of computer and network systems architecture. 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • System design for future network architectures
  • Network architectures enabled by converged platforms
  • Virtualized infrastructure architectures, rationale, and devices
  • Converged router, server, and storage platforms
  • Content-centric architectures, platforms, and mechanisms
  • Scalable programming and application frameworks
  • High performance / high function packet processing platforms
  • Power- and size-optimized computer and communications platforms
  • High-speed networking mechanisms and algorithms
  • Network security architectures and security anchor/ enhancement devices
  • Single-chip platform integration
  • Network measurement techniques, architectures, and devices
  • Techniques and systems for large-scale data analysis
  • Host-network interface issues
  • Architectures for data centers and cloud computing
  • Router and switch architectures
  • Network on chip
  • Software radios
  • Wireless-networking hardware and related software
