The 8th Annual Workshop on Network and Systems Support for Games (NetGames 2009) will be held in Paris, France, on November 23-24, 2009. The NetGames workshop brings together researchers and developers from academia and industry to present new research in understanding networked games of today and in enabling the next generation of future networked games. Submissions are sought in any area related to networked games. In particular, topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Network measurement and traffic modeling
  • System benchmarking, performance evaluation, and provisioning
  • Latency issues and lag compensation techniques
  • Operating system enhancements, service platforms, and middleware
  • Impact of online game growth on network infrastructure
  • P2P & Scalable system architectures
  • Network protocol design
  • Mobile and resource-constrained systems
  • Augmented physical systems
  • Networks of sensors and actuators
  • Input devices, haptics and accessibility
  • User and usability studies, group dynamics
  • Quality of service and content adaptation
  • User-generated content management
  • Content authoring and sharing
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Security, authentication, accounting and digital rights management
  • Cheat detection and prevention
  • Messaging and conferencing in games
  • Results that reproduce (or refute) previous published results



NetGames 2009 welcomes submissions of full papers, as well as extended abstracts reporting work-in-progress. Full papers must be no longer than 6 pages (inclusive of all figures, references and appendices). Extended abstracts must be no longer than 2 pages, and will be presented as Posters in an interactive setting. In addition to papers, technical demonstrations showing original research prototypes are also solicited. Demonstration papers must be no more than 2 pages in length, and should provide a short description of the system and the features that are to be demonstrated.

Authors must submit their papers in PDF and use single-spaced, double column ACM conference format. Detailed paper submission guidelines are available at 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 correctness, and the clarity of presentation of the research. Papers should not be under review at another venue nor previously published elsewhere.

Accepted papers will be archived in the ACM Digital Library and IEEE Xplore, and published in the workshop proceedings. Submission of a paper for review will be considered your agreement that at least one author will register and attend if your paper is accepted.

Authors of selected, top quality papers from NetGames 2009 will be invited to submit an extended version of their papers to a special issue of the International Journal of Advanced Media and Communication (IJAMC).
