Call for Papers - NSysS 2015


The 1st International Conference on Networking Systems and Security 2015 (NSysS 2015) 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. NSysS 2015 will be held during January 5-7, 2015 in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. This conference is technically co-sponsored by ACM Chapter and IEEE COMSOC 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.
