The IFIP (International Federation for Information Processing) Technical Committee 6 (TC6) held its spring 2015 meeting in Toulouse just before its 2015 Networking conference. At the meeting, the TC6 Chairman, Aiko Pras, announced continued progress with the TC6 open digital library: http://dl.ifip.org/. It is now truly operational.
TC6 deals with Communication Systems and organizes a number of conferences each year, one of them being “Networking”. What is exciting is that the papers from the conference are freely available online: Have a look at http://dl.ifip.org/db/conf/networking/networking2015/index.html
Freely available means that no fee is charged for access: One needs neither to be a subscriber nor to pay a per paper access fee. It is also worth pointing out that the authors did not have to pay to have their papers published either.
At many TC6 conferences a best paper award is given. For the 2015 conference, out of the over 200 papers submitted, 48 papers were selected for presentation. The winner of the best paper award is “Information Resilience through User-Assisted Caching in Disruptive Content-Centric Networks” by Vasilis Sourlas, Leandros Tassiulas, Ioannis Psaras, and George Pavlou. Interested? Then just have a look at http://dl.ifip.org/db/conf/networking/networking2015/1570063627.pdf
The plans are to make open publishing available for all IFIP TC6 conferences. In the meantime, enjoy the papers already available!
