ACM Information Centric Networking (ICN) 2016



The ICN poster and demo sessions are intended to showcase works-in-progress. Topics of interest are the same as those listed in the main track CFP. We strongly encourage both student and industry submissions. Both demos and posters should be accompanied by a 2 page extended abstract, which will be published in the conference proceedings. Abstract for posters, demos and datasets can be submitted via the ICN 2016 submission website.

Preparation of Posters

You are not required to submit the poster initially. Instead, you should submit a 2 page  extended abstract. If the abstract is accepted, you will then be asked to prepare the poster. The abstract should clearly state: (a) the problem being addressed, (b) what makes this problem interesting, (c) your approach, and (d) the key contribution. Acceptance is based on a peer review process of all abstracts.

A poster should be of size 32 inches x 42 inches (this is between A0 and A1) in portrait mode. It should be visually appealing, portraying ideas primarily via diagrams rather than text. The poster will be displayed on easels. The organizers will supply the foam backing and a method to mount the posters to the foam backing

In particular, we call for posters that include accompanying datasets shared with the community. The aim is to collect and share datasets that can hopefully become a common ground for evaluation in the ICN community.  Such posters will be eligible for a "best dataset award".

Preparation of Demos

You are required to submit a 2 page extended abstract, which describes the demo. The extended abstract should clearly state: (a) the problem being addressed and why it is important, (b) the approach taken and the design of the demo, (c) the key contribution and (d) any special technical requirements. If accepted, it is strongly recommended that a poster supporting the demo is produced.

Acceptance is based on a peer review process of all abstracts. A "best demo award" will be given this year, based on community judging by registered participants

A demo should be self contained and ideally interactive. Accepted demos will be given a table (6 feet by 30 inches), a power supply (100V TypeA) and WiFi Internet access(NAT only) by default. Details regarding poster preparation are described above.

Important Poster and Demo Dates
    Poster and Demo Submission Deadline: July 8, 2016
    Notification of Acceptance: July 29, 2016
    Camera Ready Due: August 15, 2016
    Conference: September 26-28, 2016


Following last year's successful tutorials, ACM ICN 2016 solicits proposals for half- or full-day tutorials on topics relevant to the ICN research that can help the audience gain further understanding of this new and exciting area.  In particular, we seek tutorials on intermediate and advanced topics of critical importance to the maturing ICN field  (such as, but not limited to, applied cryptography, or technological advances for ICN, or application of ICN to specific fields such as IoT), offered through collaboration between ICN researchers and experts in other domains.

Tutorials may be lectures, hands-on training, or any combination of the above. Exploring diverse ways of interacting with the audience is welcome, as are cross-disciplinary topics. Tutorial proposals should be submitted in PDF format, not exceeding three (3) pages in total, and be sent to the workshop/tutorial chairs.

Each proposal must include:

- A motivation for the tutorial (why this, why at ICN 2016?)
- Detailed biographies of the trainers.
- An outline of the tutorial content.
- The type of tutorial (e.g., lecture vs. hands-on)
- References to previous iterations of the tutorial (if applicable) including their date, venue, topics and number of participants and the motivation for the new proposal.
- Requirements for the tutorial room.
- Requirements for the attendants (e.g., must bring own laptop, familiarity with certain technologies or topics, etc.).
- Any limitations (e.g., number of participants).

Important tutorial dates
    Tutorial Proposal Submission Deadline: July 8, 2016
    Notification of Acceptance: July 15, 2016
    Conference: September 26-28, 2016
