IEEE LANMAN has an established tradition as a forum for presenting and discussing the latest technical advances in local and metropolitan area networking. Continuing that tradition, IEEE LANMAN 2014 invites cutting-edge papers spanning both theory and experimentation. Papers are solicited in all areas of networking, but in keeping with the current research trend, this workshop’s central theme is data center networking. The intimate single-track session format of the workshop encourages stimulating exchanges between researchers. The workshop is expected to be a forum for discussion of new and interdisciplinary ideas on architectures, service models, pricing, and performance. Speculative and potentially transformative ideas are particularly encouraged, as are studies reporting measurements from real-life networks and testbeds. Papers are solicited on any LANMAN topic including, but not limited to, the following: 


  • Novel data center network architectures and resource allocation algorithms
  • Pricing
  • Performance measurement and modeling of data centers
  • Energy-efficiency in data centers
  • Data center reliability
  • Broadband wireless access, including WiMAX, LTE
  • WiFi: roaming services, architectures, and performance
  • Metropolitan and residential networks and architectures including Ethernet in the first mile, EPONs, FTTx, etc.
  • IPTV, video delivery, and applications
  • SANs and storage over MANs
  • IEEE 802 standards
  • Optical WDM and elastic networks
  • RFID protocols and performance
  • Topology adaptation, reconfigurability, routing
  • Network management related to edge networks
  • Heterogeneous wireless and ad-hoc networks
  • Ubiquitous wireless, wired, and remote access
  • Adaptive wireless networks including cognitive radios
  • Measurement, modeling, and performance evaluation
  • Cross-layer QoS, dynamic bandwidth allocation, capacity placement/provisioning
  • Network reliability and survivability
  • Network security
  • LAN-based and MAN-based applications (gaming, distributed computing, media distribution to and in the home, enterprise applications, ambient technology, wearable-computing)
  • Impact of sensors everywhere including homes


IEEE LANMAN 2014 solicits paper submissions of Long Papers (up to 6 pages) and Short Papers (up to 2 pages). Some of Long Paper submissions may be accepted as Short Papers by the TPC. The page limits include all figures, tables, and references. All papers must be electronically submitted in PDF according to the guidelines in the workshop website The proceedings will be published by IEEE Xplore and will include both Short and Long Papers presented at the workshop. Best Paper Award will be given to the paper(s) with the highest technical merit. Selected papers will be invited for submission and fast track review by the IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing and Elsevier Computer Communications Journal. 


All IEEE LANMAN 2014 technical papers and posters must be associated with an author registration at the full rate. For authors presenting multiple papers/posters, one full registration is valid for up to three papers/posters. IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper/poster from distribution after the workshop (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper/poster is not presented at the workshop.
