OVERVIEW
=========
The 11th edition of the Annual International Workshop on Network and
Systems Support for Games (NetGames 2012) will be held in Venice, Italy,
on November 22-23, 2012. As in previous years, NetGames brings together
researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry to present
the latest research results and challenges of today’s networked games, and
to understand their requirements and possibilities in order to enable the
next generation of networked games. NetGames will also have keynote and
panel discussions with leading researchers and practitioners from gaming
companies. Technical demonstrations showing innovative and original
research related to networking and system aspects of games are solicited.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  - Scalability, cloud support, client-server, and P2P system architectures
  - Efficient message distribution and network protocol design
  - Latency issues and lag compensation techniques
  - Network traffic modeling, measurement, and impact on network
infrastructure
  - System benchmarking, performance evaluation, and provisioning
  - Operating system enhancements, service platforms, and middleware
  - Massively Multiplayer Online Gaming (MMOG)
  - Multiplayer usability and user behavior studies
  - Personal communications and conferencing in games
  - Mobile games, resource-constrained systems, and context-based adaptation
  - Networks of sensors and actuators, networked haptics
  - Quality of service, quality of experience, and content adaptation
  - Dynamic and user-generated content authoring and management
  - Content creation: non-linear storytelling, object capturing,
algorithmic creation
  - Security, authentication, accounting and digital rights management
  - Cheat detection and prevention
  - Social networking in multiplayer games


SUBMISSIONS
============

Demo submissions are in PDF, should be limited to 3 pages, and should
follow the IEEE conference proceedings format. Each Demo submission must
be accompanied by a cover letter explaining what will be actually shown
during the demonstration. Demo submissions require actual demonstration of
a working proof-of-concept or prototype.

Reviews will be single-blind, authors must include their names and
affiliations on the first page. Papers will be judged on their relevance,
technical content, and the clarity of presentation. Submissions should not
be under review at another venue nor previously published elsewhere. All
accepted Demos papers will be archived in the ACM Digital Library and IEEE
Xplore, and will published in the workshop proceedings. Submission of a
Demo paper for review will be considered your agreement that at least one
author will register and attend the workshop if your Demo is accepted.
