Call For Papers
IEEE LANMAN has an established tradition as a forum for presenting and discussing the latest technical advances in local and metropolitan area networking. Cutting-edge papers spanning both theory and experimentation are solicited in all areas of networking. Papers are solicited in all areas of networking, but in keeping with the heritage of this event, this symposium’s central theme is “Ultra-broadband wireless networks: 5G and beyond”.

Ultra-broadband wireless networks, that can utilize emerging communication technologies such as mmWave and THz communications, offer a tremendous opportunity for unprecedented data rates and low latency at the physical layer over short distances and network layer goodputs that are orders of magnitude greater than current wireless networks. At the same time, they raise numerous challenges – such as positioning, localization, intermittency – that impact networking, communication, and hardware design, often requiring cross-layer approaches to solve them.

The intimate single-track format of the symposium encourages stimulating exchanges between researchers. The event is expected to be a forum for discussion of new and interdisciplinary ideas on network access protocols, network management and control, services and applications, performance related to IoT for smart cities. Speculative and potentially transformative ideas are particularly encouraged, as are studies reporting measurements from real-life networks and testbeds. Papers are solicited on any topic in networking, including, but not limited to, the following:

    Cross-layer design for mmWave and THz communication
    Networking challenges with directional and LoS technologies
    Networking protocols and architectures for the IoTs
    Machine-to-machine communications
    Cloud, edge and fog computing integration 
    Co-existence and heterogeneity support at the edge (HetNets) 
    Energy efficiency for local and metropolitan area networking
    Information security for local and metropolitan area networking
    Intelligent routing and forwarding
    Named data networking
    Network and transport mechanisms for latency reduction
    Network virtualization in local and metropolitan area
    Packet scheduling
    Performance for local and metropolitan area networking
    Resilience and reliability for local and metropolitan area networking
    Software-defined networking in local and metropolitan area

IEEE LANMAN 2020 solicits paper submissions of Regular Papers (up to 6 pages) and Short Papers (up to 2 pages). Short papers will be presented in a poster session. Also, some of the regular 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 symposium website The proceedings will be published in IEEE Xplore and will include both short and regular papers presented at the workshop. A Best Paper Award will be given to the paper(s) with the highest technical merit.
