Presentation and Objectives
The LANCOMM Student Workshop (Latin American Student Workshop on Data Communication Networks) represents a unique opportunity for students from Latin America to network with other junior researchers as well as more experienced ones. It provides a platform for students to present their ongoing research efforts, receive constructive feedback, guidance, tips, and learn about cutting-edge research problems being tackled by the computer networks community, as well as meet senior members from the community (the senior members who will participate in LANCOMM 2020 will be confirmed soon).
LANCOMM will have a mentoring nature that is aligned with SBRC 2020 efforts. It represents an opportunity for postgraduate students and junior faculty from Latin America to learn best practices with more experienced and acknowledged researchers, and get constructive feedback on their research, possibly helping identify new promising directions.
LANCOMM will additionally serve as a meeting point for Latin American researchers to share new ideas and experiences and to discuss the challenges linked to the development of data communication networks in Latin America. Travel grants will be provided to students by ACM SIGCOMM, as explained below.
Call for Abstracts
The Latin American Student Workshop on Data Communication Networks (LANCOMM 2020) solicits stimulating and original ideas in all aspects of networking research, reflecting the ongoing research efforts of postgraduate students and junior faculty members in the form of 2-page extended abstracts (excluding references).
We encourage submissions about research at an early stage as well as more advanced dissertation-level research. Accepted presentations will not be published as proceedings, so postgraduate students can submit already accepted/published dissertation-level results and conversely results presented at the workshop can subsequently be submitted, in more complete form, for publication in a full-fledged conference or journal. Research addressing non-standard topics, controversial problems, and approaches are of particular interest.
The scope of the workshop is broad and covers all aspects of networking research. Example topics include (but are not limited to):
