Note: The call for tutorials is now closed; two tutorials have been accepted.

The Workshop on ns-3 (WNS3) will be held on June 28-29, 2023 at the Holiday Inn Arlington at Ballston. In addition to the paper presentations and lightning talks, additional ns-3 events will be held on June 26-27, 2023 at the same hotel, as part of the overall ns-3 Annual Meeting.

WNS3 invites proposals for 1-hour or 2-hour tutorials on topics related to ns-3. Tutorials will be scheduled sometime between June 26-29 (scheduling to be worked out with the meeting organizers). Although ns-3 will be a hybrid event, tutorial presenters are encouraged to attend in person.

We seek proposals for tutorials that can clearly present advanced topics related to ns-3, such as, for example, new models or functionalities for ns-3, best practices for simulations, use cases for ns-3, or integration with external tools. Tutorials with working code examples and with interactive elements will be particularly appreciated. Please see past editions of WNS3 for examples of past tutorials.
