20th IEEE Global Internet Symposium (GI 2017)

In conjunction with IEEE INFOCOM 2017 – Atlanta, GA, USA – May 1st, 2017

The Global Internet (GI) Symposium is the flagship event established and organized by the Internet Technical Committee (ITC), a joint committee of the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) and the Internet Society (ISOC).

The 20th IEEE Global Internet Symposium will be collocated with IEEE Infocom 2017. All relevant dates, location, and travel information are available from the IEEE Infocom 2017 conference site: http://infocom2017.ieee-infocom.org/

The IEEE Global Internet Symposium aims to provide a top forum for researchers and practitioners to present advances in Internet related technologies, and also allow healthy debate about various approaches. For instance, how does a novel solution compare, in terms of tangible metrics such as storage, latency, bandwidth, manageability, resilience, and usability, with existing and other approaches? So in addition to traditional research papers, and deployment description papers, we encourage position papers, papers that compare proposed approaches, papers that clarify and compare inherent differences between competing technologies, and well-thought-through heresy.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

  •  Routing, switching, and addressing
  • Resource management and quality of service
  • Software defined networks and network programming
  • Content delivery and management
  • Distributed Systems
  • Energy awareness
  • Next generation network architectures
  • Distributed Internet applications including games, VoIP, and video conferencing
  • Online social networking
  • Peer To Peer networks
  • Novel applications and new paradigms
  • Internet measurement, modeling, and visualization
  • Large scale network operation and performance monitoring
  • Privacy and/or security issues on the Internet
  • Anomaly, intrusion and attack detection
  • Interface among networking, communications and information theory
  • Applications of network science in communication networks
  • Economic aspects of the Internet
