IEEE Networking Letters is now open for submissions. Papers accepted for publication are being posted to IEEE Xplore. The first issue will be published in the First Quarter of 2019.

IEEE Networking Letters is a forum for letter-style journal papers publishing high-impact results in a timely manner. The IEEE Networking Letters is intended as a spinoff from IEEE Communications Letters and IEEE Wireless Communications Letters. Submitted papers are restricted to a maximum of four pages and the review cycle is intended to last at most six weeks after the submission date. It will publish high-quality, original research results derived from theoretical or experimental exploration of the area of communication/computer networking, covering all network layers except the physical layer, including architecture and design, protocols, control mechanisms, operations and management of access, core and edge networks. Although the Letters will not cover original work focusing on the physical layer, the letters will cover cross-layer design techniques including physical transmissions.

IEEE Networking Letters topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

Network protocols: Design, speci cation and veri cation, implementation, operation and performance evaluation of protocols in all network layers (data link, network, transport, and application).

Network context: Core, data center, edge, storage, and access networks; networks-on-chip and system interconnection networks; mobile, cellular, sensor, ad-hoc and vehicular networks; internetworking and Internet of things; virtual, overlay, and online social networks; and using wireline, wireless, or hybrid transmission technologies.

Network themes: architecture and (cross-layer) design, planning and control, applications and services, software and hardware, operations and management, security and privacy, survivability and reliability, virtualization and network programmability, measurement and modeling, pricing and economics.

Detailed instructions for submitting a paper can be found at the Author Guidelines.
