ANCS is a research conference that focuses on the architecture and
design of hardware and software for modern communication networks. The
combination of increasing network bandwidth and expanding
functionality pose continuing and growing challenges for system
designers. New technology elements, including network processors,
content addressable memories, chip multi-core processors, 
configurable logic and special-purpose components offer new opportunities 
for meeting these challenges, but also raise a variety of new issues. 
ANCS focuses on networking and communication in the broad sense, 
including novel architectures, architectural support for advanced 
communications systems, algorithms and protocols for advanced architectures, 
software and applications for next-generation networking architectures, 
and methodology and benchmarking for evaluating advanced communication 
architectures. Our emphasis this year will be on hardware and software 
elements in the context of systems that enable networks to evolve and scale.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
* System design for future Network Architectures
* Network/communications processors
* Intelligent co-processors
* Router architectures
* Emerging Technologies (e.g., optical components, etc.)
* Switch fabrics/interconnection networks
* Link scheduling, processor/thread scheduling, switch scheduling
* Network adapters
* Application-specific networks (e.g., SAN, XML Switching)
* Programmable /extensible networks
* Secure communication
* Traffic management
* Packet classification
* Content inspection and filtering
* Energy-efficient designs
* Multi-core processors and networking
* Open platforms
* Networks on-chip

The PAPER DEADLINE for submissions is June 23, 2008 at 11:59PM PST
(US). ANCS will use double-blind reviewing, so submitted papers should
not include the authors' names. Paper registration and submission must
be done electronically through EDAS ( Registration,
including the abstract, must be completed no later than June 16, 2008
at 11:59PM PDT (US). All papers must be submitted in PDF format on
letter-size paper. Submissions must be viewable by Adobe Acrobat
Reader (version 5.0 or higher) and should not exceed 10 pages in
ACM/SIG conference paper format using 10 pt font. Submissions
exceeding the maximum limit will not be reviewed by the program
committee. Camera-ready versions of the accepted papers will be
required to use the ACM SIG format

We encourage submissions containing original ideas. Like other
conferences, ANCS requires that papers not be submitted simultaneously
to any other conferences or publications; that submissions not be
previously published; and that accepted papers not be subsequently
published elsewhere.
