The 16th IEEE INFOCOM Global Internet Symposium took place in Torino, Italy, on the 19th of April 2013, in conjunction with IEEE INFOCOM 2013.
There were 28 papers submitted to the workshop. This is a small decrease compared to the number of submissions received in 2012 where 31 papers were submitted. Of these submissions, 13 papers have authors from insitutions from the Asia Pacific region, 12 papers have authors from European Institutions, 5 have authors from North American insitutions and 2 papers have authors from insitutions based in Africa.
There were 13 papers accepted from the 28 reviewed, for an acceptance ratio of 46%. This is a bit higher than the previous workshops. Each paper received reviews from at least three TPC members. There were 25 TPC members, so the review load was not excessive. Overall the review process went smoothly, with very little disagreement on the merit of the papers.
The accepted papers were organized into four sessions on “Global Datasets”, “Inferring the Shape of the Internet”, “New Mechanisms” and “New Tools”.
There were around 20 attendees at the workshop. Given the large number of workshops organized in conjunction with IEEE INFOCOM in 2013, and the timing on the last day of the conference, we consider the attendance to be ok. The workshop ran smoothly, with good feedback and discussion from the audience.
The workshop received sponsoring from the EU funded project Trilogy 2.
