Welcome to Marina del Rey

Technical Scope

ANCS is a systems-oriented research conference, presenting original work that explores the relationship between the algorithms and architectures of data communication networks and the hardware and software elements from which these networks are built.  This includes both experimental and theoretical analysis.  To recognize and foster the increasing importance of research into the co-design of computer and network systems, the conference also places an emphasis on systems issues arising from the interaction of computer and network architectures.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

        • System design for future network architectures
        • Router and switch architectures
        • High-speed networking algorithms and mechanisms
        • Software Defined Networking systems
        • Network Functions Virtualization architectures
        • Virtualized infrastructure architectures and systems
        • Architectures for data centers
        • Converged router, server, and storage platforms
        • Host-network interface issues
        • Techniques and systems for large-scale data analysis
        • Wireless network hardware and related software, including software radios
        • Mesh, ad hoc and sensor network hardware and related software
        • Content-centric network architectures, platforms, and mechanisms
        • Network security architectures and security anchor/enhancement devices
        • Network measurement techniques, architectures, and devices
        • Scalable programming and application frameworks
        • High-performance and high-function network processing platforms
        • Power- and size-optimized computer and communications platforms
        • Hardware accelerators and offload engines
        • Single-chip networking elements, e.g., multicore, NPU, FPGA, TCAM, custom ASIC
        • Network-on-Chip architectures and applications
        • Memory architectures and technologies for packet, state and table storage.
