Instructions for the final version

Final versions of accepted papers must be sent by email to the chairs on or before June 6, 2016, so they are accessible during the workshop (authors will still have an opportunity to update their manuscript after the workshop in order to include attendants remarks in the proceedings version).

The following formatting rules must be respected:

  • You must use the ACM sig-alternate-per latex template (http://www.sigmetrics.org/sig-alternate-per.cls) without modifying it. In particular, it must have the PER notice in the copyright box "Copyright is held by author/owner(s)."; but no other information should appear (i.e., do not add the name of the workshop).
  • Your manuscript must be in letter paper format and have all fonts embedded. Colors can be used but will appear only in the online version, not in the printed newsletter.
  • Your manuscript must be of at most 4 pages, including all figures, tables, references, appendices, etc.
  • Your manuscript must be in PDF format.

The proceedings will appear in a special issue of ACM Performance Evaluation Review (PER). Authors retain the copyright of their work published in ACM PER, with freedom to submit it elsewhere. Yet, authors for whom publication of a 4-pages extended abstract in the NetEcon 2016 proceedings would preclude later publication of an expanded version in the relevant venue may elect to contribute only a one-page abstract of their submitted extended abstract to the NetEcon 2016 proceedings. Such an abstract should follow the same formatting guidelines listed above and should include the URL of a working paper or preprint that contains the main results presented at the NetEcon workshop.

Instructions for the final version (short talk)

Submissions accepted as short talks are allocated one page in the proceedings. Final version of the one-page abstracts of short talks must be sent by email to the chairs on or before June 6, 2016, so they are accessible during the workshop (authors will still have an opportunity to update their 1-page abstract after the workshop in order to include attendants remarks in the proceedings version).

The same formatting rules as for papers (above) must be respected for short talks abstracts, with the following two special rules:

  • Your manuscript must be of at most 1 page, including all figures, tables, references, appendices, etc.
  • Your manuscript must include the sub-title “Short talk” (insert it using the command \subtitle{[Short talk]}).

Submission formatting guidelines and proceedings

Submissions must be in the form of extended abstracts of at most 4 pages (including all figures, tables, references, etc.) containing all important results to allow the reader to evaluate the novelty and magnitude of the contribution. They must be formatted according to the standard alternate ACM PER double column format using letter paper. You are encouraged to use the ACM sig-alternate-per latex template (http://www.sigmetrics.org/sig-alternate-per.cls).

In case 4 pages is not sufficient to provide enough information (e.g., proofs) to allow the reader to make a knowledgeable evaluation of the paper's claims, we encourage the authors to provide supplementary material either as clearly marked appendix (without page limit) or by including a link to the full version of their extended abstract. Such supplementary material, however, will be read at the discretion of the PC members and will not appear in the proceedings in case of acceptance.

Accepted extended abstracts will be published in a special issue of ACM Performance Evaluation Review (PER) and will be available online through ACM portal digital library. Authors of accepted abstracts grant ACM permission to publish them in print and digital formats.

Note that authors retain the copyright of their work published in ACM PER, with freedom to submit it elsewhere. Yet, authors for whom publication of a 4 pages extended abstract in the NetEcon proceedings would preclude later publication of an expanded version in the relevant venue may elect to contribute only a one-page abstract of their submitted extended abstract to the NetEcon proceedings. Such an abstract should include the URL of a working paper or preprint that contains the main results presented at the NetEcon workshop. Authors will make this decision after receiving a notice of acceptance.

If the number of excellent submissions is larger than we have space to allot presentations for, some authors will be offered the opportunity to present their work during a poster session.
