Short papers can be up to 4 pages in length, in two-column 10pt format and should describe brief and focused research contributions that are noteworthy. n Extended abstracts should describe either thought-provoking ideas with the potential for interesting discussions at the conference, or works-in-progress for sharing valuable ideas, eliciting feedback on early-stage work, or fostering discussions and collaborations among colleagues. Extended abstracts can be up to 6 pagesReview, publication and presentationEach submission will be refereed by at least 3 TPC members, to cover both the research background of each submissionas well as the necessary interdisciplinary aspects. Review criteria for all types of submissions include significance,originality, presentation, validity, and the ability to stimulate discussion, with different emphases depending on thesubmission category to allow for consideration of all relevant works contributing to the advancement of Internet Science.All accepted papers and extended abstracts will appear in the Conference Proceedings in the same length and formatthe submission.Regardless of the submission format, accepted submissions will be presented in one of three formats:1) as a 20-minute presentation followed by discussion,2) during one of the poster presentations and discussion sessions,3) or as part of a panel discussion.Research papers and extended abstracts are eligible for presentation in any of the three formats, depending on reviewerrecommendations. Submissions that are thought-provoking and novel will be more appropriate for longer presentation,while those that are expected to stimulate discussion will be ideal for presentation in smaller groups or as posters.Event general Chairs Leandros Tassiulas, CERTH, Greece Chris Marsden, University of Essex, UKTechnical Programme Committee Chairs Juan Carlos De Martin, Nexa Center for Internet and Society, Politecnico di Torino, Italy Kavé Salamatian, LISTIC, University of Savoie, France

  4. 4. About the EINS Network of Excellence�e EINS Network of Excellence in Internet Science is supported by the European Commission under its FP7research-funding programme (ICT �eme). It aims to strengthen scientific and technological excellence bydeveloping an integrated and interdisciplinary scientific understanding of Internet networks and their co-evolutionwith society, by addressing the fragmentation of European research in this area, at geographical anddisciplinary levels.Its main objective is to enable an open and productive dialogue betweenall disciplines exploring Internet systems from any technological orhumanistic perspective, and which in turn are being transformedby continuous advances in Internet functionality.�e network brings together thirty-eight research institutions acrossEurope that are focusing on network engineering, computation,complexity, networking, security, mathematics, physics, sociology,game theory, economics, political sciences, humanities, and law,as well as other relevant social and life sciences. It is coordinatedby Prof. Leandros Tassiulas from CERTH, Greece.�e network�s main deliverable will be a durable shaping and structuring of the way Internet research is carriedout, by reaching a critical mass of expertise needed to provide European leadership in this area, providingconcrete incentives for multidisciplinary collaborations, and spreading excellence beyond the partnership.Project partners Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche HELLENIC REPUBLIC National and Kapodistrian University of Athens
