IFIP Networking 2015
The main focus of IFIP Networking 2015 was on adoptive streaming techniques, content centric networking Internet-of-Things (IoT), Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), network management, QoE management, and Big Data. Also, there was an introduction to the topics of energy efficiency in 5G networks, and network virtualization in 5G networks, introduced mostly in keynotes. The main objectives of Networking 2015 are to bring together members of the networking community from both academia and industry, to discuss recent advances in the broad and quickly-evolving fields of computer and communication networks, and to highlight key issues, identify trends, and develop visions for the networking domain. This year IFIP Networking 2015 attracted 202 submitted papers. Those papers were distributed over the areas of network architecture (34%), applications and services (23%), and wireless networking (23%), network science (20%), and came from authors from Europe, Middle East, Africa (65%), Asia/Pacific (18%), United States and Canada (13%), and Latin America (4%). With so many good papers to choose from, the Technical Program Committee (TPC) task of selecting the final technical program was not easy. 128 researchers from 28 different countries formed the TPC. All papers underwent a thorough review process, with each paper receiving between three and five reviews as well as a meta-review that summed up the online discussion of the paper. After careful consideration, 48 papers were selected for the technical program, resulting in an overall acceptance rate of 23.8%. 2 of the IFIP Networking 2015 conference papers acknowledge SmartenIT, (1) VoIP-based Calibration of the DQX Model prseneted by Christos Tsiaras (UZH), and (2) TopT: Supporting Flash Crowd Events in Hybrid Overlay-based Live Streaming presented by Julius Rückert (TUD). Manuel Rösch, the co-author of the SmartenIT paper “VoIP-based Calibration of the DQX Model” has received the Student Travel Grant (STG).
