2001 conference seeks papers describing significant research contributions
to the field of computer and data communication networks. Authors are invited
to submit full papers concerned with both theory and practice. Areas of
interest include, but are not limited to:
is a single-track, highly selective conference at which successful submissions
typically report results firmly substantiated by experiment, implementation,
simulation, or mathematical analysis. In addition to the technical program
(paper presentations), SIGCOMM 2001 will offer tutorials by noted instructors
on the two days preceding the actual conference, and feature an outrageous
opinion session where fresh and unconventional perspectives will be offered.

and support for nomadic computing.
Analysis and design
of computer network architectures and algorithms.
SIGCOMM 2001 will begin with two days of full-day and half-day tutorials
covering single topics in detail, at both the introductory or advanced
level. Individuals interested in submitting tutorial proposals are encouraged
to contact the Tutorial Chair before the deadline to discuss the proposed
Papers submitted by students may be considered for a student-paper award,
which includes full conference registration and a travel grant of approximately
$500. To be eligible, the student must be the sole author of the paper,
or the first author and primary contributor. A cover letter or email to
the Program Chairs must identify the paper as a candidate for this competition.
The keynote speaker at SIGCOMM 2001 will be the 2001 winner of the ACM
SIGCOMM Award for lifetime contributions to the field of computer communication.
Procedures for nominating candidates for the SIGCOMM Award can be obtained
