The 7th International Workshop on Networking, Computing, Systems, and Software

To be held in conjunction with CANDAR'17, Aomori, Japan, November 19-22, 2017

The main goal of this workshop is to provide a timely forum for the exchange and dissemination of new ideas, techniques and research in the field of networking, computing, systems, and software. We accept original and unpublished work. We also accept:

  • position papers,
  • undergoing work,
  • preliminary version of a paper, and
  • extended version of previously published paper.

This workshop is non-refereed, so all submitted papers will be accepted for publication and presentation as long as they are well-formatted technical papers in the area of computing and networking. The authors are responsible for the originality, significance, clarity, and quality of the papers. The submitted papers will be published as they are. It is recommended to append “(preliminary version)” or “(extended version)” to the title of the paper if it is preliminary version or extended version.
