More about ACM SIGCOMM

Greetings from the General Chair:

I invite you to attend the ACM SIGCOMM '95 Conference. The conference is an international forum on computer communication network applications and technologies, architectures, protocols, algorithms, and performance models. This year it is being held at the Cambridge Marriott Hotel, Cambridge, Massachusetts. The Cambridge area is rich in culture, history, and tradition. It is the home of many of our leading educational institutions and a major center of high technology research and development.

This year we have planned an exciting program. The conference will be preceded by eight "Hot Topic" tutorials covering issues from protocol design, multimedia and wireless technology, to high performance networks, security and client/server computing. The technical conference begins August 30 with a keynote address by this year's ACM SIGCOMM award winner, Prof. David Farber. This will be followed by a highly selective three-day single track technical program with 30 papers in eleven sessions covering topics like switching and routing, communication protocols, bandwidth reservation, traffic modeling, protocol implementations, wireless networking, and application support.

Besides our technical program, this year will offer the first invitational workshop focused on the emerging topic of middleware infrastructure. For one and a half days, participants will discuss and debate new common services and management that will sit above the traditional communication network infrastructure layers, extending our networking capabilities into the next century.

Three events will provide a chance to meet colleagues and discuss topics of mutual interest. From 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. Tuesday, August 29, a reception will welcome you to SIGCOMM '95. The conference banquet is Wednesday, August 30 at the Boston Computer Museum, where you will be free to explore the museum and their new exhibit, the "Networked Planet Gallery". Thursday, August 31 evening, there will be an Outrageous Opinions Session where you can participate or listen to ideas that may be outrageous today, but perhaps reality tomorrow.

The city of Cambridge and the surrounding areas of Boston are beautiful this time of year. Please join us for outstanding technical presentations, an opportunity to interact with colleagues at the social events, and the chance to participate in one of the premier international communication network forums.
