Paper submission

Submission Formatting Guidelines

Submissions must be one of two formats:

  • An extended abstracts of at most 6 pages in the standard two-column format of ACM proceedings (including all figures, tables, references, etc.) containing all important results to allow evaluation of the novelty and scope of the contribution. Where 6 pages are not sufficient to provide enough information (e.g., proofs) to properly substantiate the paper’s results, the authors should provide supplementary material either as a clearly marked appendix (without page limit) or by including a link to the full version of their extended abstract. Such supplementary material will, however, be read only at the discretion of the PC members and will not appear in the proceedings in case of acceptance.
  • In case of re-submissions of papers from EC’20 or SIGMETRICS’20, papers may be submitted together with the reviews. Authors may update their papers vis-à-vis the EC/SIGMETRICS submission, but should include the original version submitted in the appendix, ideally with an additional brief document detailing any changes made in response to reviewer comments. If changes are so substantial that the reviews are largely irrelevant, then the usual 6 page version should be submitted instead. Authors of EC/ SIGMETRICS resubmissions that are accepted must either shorten their papers for final inclusion in the proceedings, or opt for the extended abstract format.

Papers should be submitted through the submission website at

Note that authors for whom publication of a 6-page extended abstract in the NetEcon proceedings would preclude later publication of an expanded version in the relevant venue may elect to contribute only a one-page abstract of their submitted extended abstract to the NetEcon proceedings. Such an abstract should include the URL of a working paper or preprint that contains the main results presented at the NetEcon workshop. Authors can make this decision after receiving a notice of acceptance.

Results previously published or presented at another archival conference prior to NetEcon, or published at a journal prior to the submission deadline to NetEcon, will not be considered.

The workshop proceedings will be published by ACM and available through the ACM Digital Library (DL). Authors will need to assign publication rights to ACM either in the form of a copyright assignment or a license grant as described on ACM’s copyright policy page. In addition, a table-of-content of the workshop’s papers will be posted that will offer permanent free access to the DL version of the papers using the ACM OpenTOC service.
