4th European P4 Workshop (EuroP4) Call For Papers
EuroP4 will be held on December 13th, 2021 virtually, in conjunction with ACM/IEEE ANCS’21https://ancsconf.org/.
The 4th European P4 Workshop (EuroP4) will bring together networking researchers to discuss cutting-edge, P4-based, research. The workshop provides a venue for P4-based research and projects, a place to discuss P4-based tools, and the research community needs. The workshop aims to forge connections between researchers, introduce more networking researchers to the P4 community, and seed future top-tier publications and innovation.
TOPICS OF INTEREST *
We solicit original, previously unpublished ideas on P4-based research and engineering work, and work-in-progress reports in the form of short papers. We further encourage papers that propose new research directions or that could stimulate lively debate at the workshop. We invite submissions on a wide range of topics of interest, including, but not limited to:
All aspects of P4-based network protocol research, including design, specification, verification, implementation, measurement, testing, and analysis.
Design, analysis, and evaluation of network architectures using P4 as a basis, e.g., specific algorithms and protocols for network virtualization or future Internet architectures.
New applications enabled by P4, including in-network computing and Big Data, Video and Virtual Reality, Mobile and Wireless Network Protocols and Applications, Ubiquitous computing, Internet-of-Things and Smart Cities.
Secure, reliable and dependable P4-based systems, including all aspects of monitoring, verification, debugging and troubleshooting networks enabled by P4.
P4-based and P4-NetFPGA based programmable data planes.
P4 end-host networking, offloading transport- and application-layer protocols to P4-enabled hardware.
Tools and frameworks for development using P4.
Contributions to the evolution of the P4 language.

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS *
EuroP4 solicits full-length technical papers of 6 pages and short poster/demo papers as 3 page extended abstracts. These page limits do not include references. Submissions should adhere to the ACM Primary Article Templates (“2. The Workflow and Templates” in https://www.acm.org/publications/authors/submissions) with document class arguments of 10pt,sigconf,letterpaper,anonymous,nonacm. EuroP4 will use a double-blind review process: papers must not indicate author names or affiliations.
Authors are required to present accepted papers at the workshop in order for the paper to appear in the proceedings and the ACM digital library. Exceptions from this policy for truly mitigating situations must be approved by the TPC Chairs before the beginning of the workshop.
