NetPL 2016 Travel Grant applications and Call for Participation
----------------------------------------------------------------------

The Second Workshop on Networking and Programming Languages,
co-located with SIGCOMM 2016
August 22nd, 2016
Florianopolis, Brazil
http://conferences.sigcomm.org/sigcomm/2016/netpl.php

----------------------------------------------------------------------

The NetPL workshop provides a forum to bring together researchers and
practitioners from the fields of programming languages, formal
methods, and networking.

Recent technological trends, such as Software-Defined Networking,
Network Functions Virtualization and reconfigurable networking
hardware, have created an opportunity for researchers in these
traditionally separate communities to collaborate, applying their
diverse perspectives towards the development of novel networking
applications. It is important to clarify that the scope of this
workshop goes strictly beyond SDN. We aim to enable language
specialists to better understand opportunities in networking, and
networking specialists to better understand opportunities enabled by
specially-designed languages.


Grant complement for students applying for SIGCOMM travel grants
===========================================

The NetPL 2016 workshop has limited support for funding students to
attend the workshop. Interested students can apply for a grant
complement through the SIGCOMM travel grants application:

workshop in a separate section of the application letter.
