Scope of the workshop

The IEEE Global Internet Symposium aims to provide a top forum for researchers and practitioners to present and discuss advances in Internet related technologies. The focus of the symposium is on experimental systems and emerging future Internet technologies, and especially on scaling such systems to the global scale of the Internet. The Global Internet Symposium also has a special focus on developing countries, especially measurements-related aspects. In addition to the traditional research papers, we also encourage well-thought-through position papers, papers that compare proposed approaches, papers that clarify and compare inherent differences between competing technologies, and heresy.
This year the IEEE Global Internet Symposium is hosted by IFIP Networking 2020 held in Paris, in June.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Routing, switching, and addressing
  • Software defined networks and network function virtualization
  • Geo-distributed applications, consistency and latency challenges
  • Content delivery and management
  • Internet eXchanges and remote peering
  • Internet structure and analysis tools
  • Network-aware applications
  • Distributed Systems
  • Next generation network architectures
  • Novel Distributed Internet applications including live video streaming, and real-time large-scale games
  • Online social networking
  • Peer to Peer networks Novel applications and new paradigms
  • Internet measurement, modeling, and visualization
  • Large scale network operation and performance monitoring
  • Privacy, security, and censorship issues on the Internet
  • Anomaly, intrusion and attack detection
  • Economic aspects of the Internet and network neutrality
  • Measurements and deployments in developing countries
