Netties 2007 – Scope of the conference

Conference overview

The 13th International Network Entities (Netties) conference will be held at Leeds Metropolitan University, United Kingdom, 13-14 September 2007. In line with developments in our field, we are putting an emphasis on innovative ways to connect, communicate and interact with people using technology, thereby crossing boundaries and going beyond what was possible previously.

The conference will comprise a mix of research sessions, panel discussions and lectures, bringing together academics and researchers interested in innovation for the future.

Netties 2007 will be held at the distinguished Headingley Campus in the North of the city. It is a peaceful, secure and friendly environment only a few minutes from the world-famous Headingley cricket ground with a host of facilities together on one site: café, bar, the Students’ Union, cash points, bookshop and travel agency. The conference facilities are housed in historical buildings, housing state-of-the-art information technology, lecture theatres and laboratories.

Call for papers

Our aim is to bring together different points of view on each topic for lively and coherent discussion at the conference. We invite submissions that address the conference theme of Innovation Beyond Boundaries and its sub-themes. However innovative contributions that do not fit into these areas will also be considered as long as they are directly related to the overall theme of the conference. Submissions are invited in the following categories:

  • Full Papers – these are mainly concerned with results of completed research and should comprise a maximum of 8 pages.
  • Short Papers – these include fresh concepts or preliminary research results but may also contain work-in-progress reports. These should be a maximum of 4 pages.
  • Posters – like short papers these cover fresh concepts, preliminary results or work-in-progress which particularly lends itself to a visual presentation. The submission should be a maximum of 2 pages.

For formatting details and accepted document formats for all submission categories read the instructions for authors.
