Call for Papers

The notification of acceptance was sent on August 29, 2022

General Information

The 2022 Latin America Networking Conference (LANC 2022) is in-cooperation with ACM SIGCOMM and will provide an international technical forum for experts from industry and academia, everywhere in the world, but especially from the Latin American countries, to exchange ideas and present results of ongoing research in networking.

LANC 2022 will be held in collaboration with CLEI 2022, the 2022 Latin American Conference on Computing, organized in this opportunity by the Universidad del Quindio, Armenia, Colombia. It will be celebrated on October 19-20, 2022, as a hybrid conference (in-person and virtually). In addition to the traditional paper presentations, the conference will host tutorials and keynote speeches. You can download the extension of the Call for Papers in PDF format from this link.

Similarly to preview years, all the accepted and presented papers will be included in the ACM Digital Library.
 
 

Call for Papers
Students, faculty, researchers, and scientists are invited to submit high-quality original technical manuscripts written in English to LANC 2022. All submitted papers will have at least three reviews. Acceptance will be based on originality, quality, relevance, and the practical value of the work. Two categories are available: (1) full papers and (2) short papers. Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere. The peer-review process will be “single-blind” where manuscripts shall be submitted with the author(s) names and affiliations. At least one author of every accepted manuscript must register to attend the conference in-person or virtually, and present his/her article. Failure to do so will result in exclusion from the conference proceedings.

Full Papers: From 6 to 8 single-spaced pages in length. An acceptance rate of approximately 35% is anticipated for the Full Paper category. Awards for the best full papers will be presented.

Short Papers: From 4 to 5 single-spaced pages in length. The acceptance rate is targeted at 45% for this category. Awards for the best short papers will be presented.

The Technical Program Committee will announce the best papers during the event, and the authors will be awarded a certificate.
