[Ndn-interest] Is it possible to submit a research paper without implementing it?

Hi Mudasir

It is certainly possible to *publish* your idea. People around the world
publish their ideas every second. You may post your idea on your blog, on
this mailing list, or websites such as LinkedIn, Medium, and Quora for that.
I have several NDN related articles on my blog
https://yoursunny.com/t/tags/NDN/ and readers like them.

However, if you want to publish on a *peer reviewed* venue, some form of
evaluation is almost always required. You must not only implement and
evaluate your idea, but also compare it to *the state of art*, a solution
to a similar problem designed by someone before you. Additionally, it is
always preferable to evaluate your solution with a real deployment instead
of a simulation. Papers with only simulations are unlikely to be accepted.
I have a (non peer reviewed) post about how to publish a peer reviewed
academic paper: https://yoursunny.com/t/2017/academic-papers/ .

If you are unable to implement your idea, you can still write blog posts
about the idea. Although they have lesser impact, they are still useful
knowledge to the community.

Yours, Junxiao
