With support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Networking Technology and Systems Early-Career Investigators (NeTS-ECI) Workshop aims to develop the early-career NeTS research community to address emerging challenges and pursue promising research opportunities in the domain of computer and information networking. NeTS-ECI provides an opportunity for early-career researchers (see below for eligibility) to engage in discussions with peers to share perspectives and explore new research frontiers. Each workshop participant will also have an opportunity to showcase his/her research interests, build a collaborator network, kick-start collaborations, and benefit from professional development activities such as presentations on the NSF merit review process and elements of successful NSF proposals.


We invite research statement summaries (similar to a NSF proposal summary) from senior graduate students (who are within 1 year from the completion of their Ph.D. degrees) and early-career Ph.D. graduates (who received their Ph.D. degrees within the last 3 years). The committee will select participants based on the pool of received proposals. (See submission instructions here)
