Call for Workshop Proposals

As part of the program of the ACM SIGCOMM 2004 conference, SIGCOMM will be hosting two days of workshops on topics of data communications. SIGCOMM invites workshop proposals from interested communities.

General Guidelines

The purpose of the workshop proposal is to describe the topic area covered by the workshop and how the workshop will be organized.

SIGCOMM will provide basic support for the workshop in the form of registration, publicity, a meeting room, meal service for the workshop at the SIGCOMM conference, and a limited amount of supporting funds to cover workshop logistics. To encourage flexibility, the details of the format of the workshop, the form of submissions and presentations, and the like is left to the workshop organizers. 

Workshops that prove popular may be held again in subsequent years.

Detailed Guidelines

Proposals for workshops should be sent to the SIGCOMM 2004 workshop coordinator Harrick Vin (vin@cs.utexas.edu) by December 1, 2003 and should contain:

  • A description of the workshop's technical area.
  • A description of the workshop program (e.g., paper presentations, poster presentations, panel sessions) and expected attendance. The workshop program should fill one day and SIGCOMM encourages programs that require only one meeting room (for simplified logistics).
  • The names of key workshop volunteers (e.g., the workshop chair, program chair and possible program committee members).
  • A draft call for papers or participation.
  • Opportunities for sponsorship from corporate donors.
