3rd P4 Workshop in Europe (EuroP4)
Call For Papers
EuroP4 will be held on December 1st, 2020 at Barcelona, Spain, in
conjunction with CoNEXT 2020.
The 3rd P4 Workshop in Europe (EuroP4) will bring together networking
researchers to discuss cutting-edge, P4-based, research. The workshop
provides a venue for P4-based research and projects, a place to discuss
P4-based tools, and the research community needs. The workshop aims to
forge connections between researchers, introduce more networking
researchers to the P4 community, and seed future top-tier publications
* TOPICS OF INTEREST *
We solicit original, previously unpublished ideas on P4-based research
and engineering work, and work-in-progress reports in the form of short
papers. We further encourage papers that propose new research directions
or that could stimulate lively debate at the workshop. We invite
submissions on a wide range of topics of interest, including, but not
- All aspects of P4-based network protocol research, including design,
specification, verification, implementation, measurement, testing, and
- Design, analysis, and evaluation of network architectures using P4 as
a basis, e.g., specific algorithms and protocols for network
virtualization or future Internet architectures.
- New applications enabled by P4, including in-network computing and Big
Data, Video and Virtual Reality, Mobile and Wireless Network Protocols
and Applications, Ubiquitous computing, Internet-of-Things and Smart
- Secure, reliable and dependable P4-based systems, including all
aspects of monitoring, verification, debugging and troubleshooting
networks enabled by P4.
- P4-based and P4-NetFPGA based programmable data planes.
- P4 end-host networking, offloading transport- and application-layer
protocols to P4-enabled hardware.
- Tools and frameworks for development using P4.
- Contributions to the evolution of the P4 language.

* PARTICIPATION *
There are currently significant statutory lockdowns and travel
restrictions in-place in many parts of the world. We are closely
monitoring the situation, and working in collaboration with CoNext’20 to
decide on the workshop’s mode. Please follow updates on CoNEXT 2020 and
* SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS *
EuroP4 solicits full-length technical papers of 6 pages and short
poster/demo papers as 2 page extended abstracts. Submissions should
adhere to the ACM formatting requirements (2-column, 10pt ACM
format). EuroP4 will use a double-blind review process.
Authors are required to present accepted papers at the workshop in order
for the paper to appear in the proceedings and the ACM digital
library. Exceptions from this policy for truly mitigating situations
must be approved by the TPC Chairs before the beginning of the workshop.
