After two successful editions, which gathered users and developers for highly interactive and lively discussions but without a formal publication track, this year the workshop will feature a peer-reviewed paper track, thus allowing presenters to get formal credit for their contribution. Papers will be available in the digital library collection arranged by the main conference track (more details to be provided at a later date).
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
As a general rule, papers presenting enhancements to ns-3 and/or innovative ways of using ns-3 that could be beneficial to the ns-3 community are considered to be within the scope of the workshop. Papers that just present simulation results obtained without any significant modification to the ns-3 simulator will be considered out of scope and rejected. Please do not hesitate to contact the workshop chairs if you have any question regarding the scope of your submission.

Papers must be written in English and must not exceed 8 pages. Authors should submit papers through EasyChair in PDF format, complying with the ACM conference proceedings format. Submitted papers must not have been submitted for review or published (partially or completely) elsewhere. Every paper will be peer-reviewed. Papers will be accepted based on relevance, originality and amount of the contribution, as well as quality of the writing and presentation. At least one author of each accepted paper must register and present the work at the conference. Failure to do so will result in the paper not being published in the conference proceedings and in the digital libraries. The copyright policy that will be used for accepted papers will be posted as part of the author's kit at a future date.
In addition to the regular paper track, we are organizing a session dedicated to short talks and demonstrations not to be published on the conference proceedings. The aim is to foster interactive discussions on work in progress, new problem statements and ideas for future development related to ns-3.
Prospective authors should provide a title and short abstract of the proposed talk or demonstration. The deadline for submitting proposals is February 28, 2011.
To submit a short talk/demo proposal, please contact the WNS3 TPC chairs:
The next ns-3 developers' meeting is going to be held in Barcelona as well, on Saturday, March 26th (the day after WNS3). The meeting will be hosted at the CTTC Demo Centre, calle Sancho de Avila 110-130, 08018 Barcelona. More information on the ns-3 wiki.
