Call for Papers

The 4th International Conference on Networking, Systems and Security 2017 (4th NSysS 2017) aims at providing a forum of researchers, practitioners, developers, and users to exchange new ideas and results related to computer networks, networking systems, and security across academia and industry. 4th NSysS 2017 will be held during December 18-20, 2017 in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. This conference is technically co-sponsored by ACM Chapter and IEEE Bangladesh Section.

We solicit original technical papers articulating novel ideas, protocols, and algorithms with ground-breaking results and/or quantified experiences involving networking systems and security. The conference values papers, which will take a broad networking and/or security perspective(s) covering contemporary and future applications. Of particular interest are technical contributions that enable new and compelling networking and security paradigms.
