The 9th IEEE International Workshop on Architecture, Design, Deployment & Management of Networks & Applications (ADMNET 2021)

Call for Papers

The aims of ADMNET 2021 are to discuss and advance the state-of-the-art research and development in the area of architecture, design, deployment, and management of networks and Internet-based applications. This workshop is also a forum for designers, developers, and administrators of the networks and applications. Technology, knowledge, and technique are important key elements to solve the issues and meet the requirements for making new technologies. It is intended to bring together researchers from different communities with similar needs and to provide a base for scientific exchanges of research ideas.

The widespread of the Internet has given further opportunities for providing new network services and Web-based applications. However, such services and applications are often accomplished by high complexities and the need for advanced heuristic techniques has become prevalent. On the other hand, the networks of company, campus, and community have become an important infrastructure for business, education, research, and social activity. These networks have to be robust, reliable, fast, convenient, and safe.

Developers and administrators of applications and networks are struggling to design and operate systems with their heuristic techniques in order to keep and improve the quality and performance. Computer ethics and its education may be an important factor not only to protect security and privacy but also to improve the efficiency of the system and reduce operating costs. These efforts and issues should be shared and solved among researchers from different communities with similar needs.

Any submissions relevant to the area of networks and applications will be considered, but any submissions related to one of the following topics will be particularly welcome:

  • Network Architecture and Design
  • QoS, Scalability Solutions
  • Fairness, Optimality, and other aspects of Network Resource Sharing
  • Network Deployment, Management, and Operation
  • Network Security (VPN, Authentication, Certification, ISMS, etc.)
  • Network Applications (WWW, E-mail, etc.) and their Operation
  • Meta-Heuristics and Soft Computing Approaches for Networking Technologies
  • Network Metrics, Network Growth, and Percolation Models
  • Modeling of Users and Network-Based Services,
  • Digital Convergence
  • ITIL, User Policy and Service Level Agreements
  • Computer Ethics and Education

Important Dates

Workshop papers due: 21 April 2021

Workshop paper notifications: 15 May 2021

Camera-ready and registration due: 31 May 2021

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research work, as well as industrial practice reports. Simultaneous submission to other publication venues is not permitted.  In accordance with IEEE policy, submitted manuscripts will be checked for plagiarism. Instances of alleged misconduct will be handled according to the IEEE Publication Services and Product Board Operations Manual.

Please note that in order to ensure the fairness of the review process, COMPSAC follows the double-blind review procedure. Therefore we kindly ask authors to remove their names, affiliations and contacts from the header of their papers in the review version. Please also redact all references to authors’ names, affiliations or prior works from the paper when submitting papers for review. Once accepted, authors can then include their names, affiliations and contacts in the camera-ready revision of the paper, and put the references to their prior works back.


Workshop papers are limited to 6 pages. Page limits are inclusive of tables, figures, appendices, and references. Workshop papers can add an additional 2 pages with additional page charges ($250USD/page).

Paper Templates

IEEE Paper templates are available in MS Word 2003 and LaTex. All submissions must use US 8.5×11 letter page format.
