The Workshop on ns-3 (WNS3) will be held on June 5-6, 2024 at the Centre Tecnològic de Telecomunicacions de Catalunya (CTTC) in Castelldefels, Barcelona, Spain. In addition to the paper presentations and lightning talks, additional ns-3 events will be held on June 3-4, 2024 at the CTTC, as part of the overall ns-3 Annual Meeting.

Do you have some work in progress that you would like to share with the ns-3 community? The Technical Program Committee co-chairs are soliciting lightning talk proposals for the Workshop on ns-3.

TPC chairs will select roughly 10 such talks based on timeliness and relevance (the exact number will depend on the duration of the paper presentations). Submissions are open until mid-May and speakers will be notified by the end of May. We encourage the submission of talks that will spark some discussion with the broader community during the meeting. In-person talks are preferred, but virtual talks are also acceptable if necessary.
