SIGCOMM2006 Call for Posters
This year we will be repeating the very popular poster session aimed at showcasing work in progress. This is an opportunity to present and discuss current work in an informal setting during the SIGCOMM 2006 conference. Topics of interest are the same as research topics in the SIGCOMM conference CFP.

Although anyone can submit a poster, preference will be given to posters where the primary contribution is from one or more students. Posters will be reviewed by members of the SIGCOMM Poster Session Committee. At the conference, student posters must be presented by a student. Authors of accepted papers in SIGCOMM 2005 may not submit a poster on the same work in those papers.

Important Dates
Submission Deadline 12 May 2006 9PM PST
Notification of Acceptance 16 June 2006
Camera Ready Deadline 14 July 2006 9PM PST
Poster Session 13 September 2006
Why should you submit a poster?
This is a great chance especially for students to obtain interesting and valuable feedback on ongoing research from a knowledgeable crowd at the conference. Travel grants for student posters Students who are submitting posters are highly encouraged to examine if they are eligible for student travel grants.
What is a poster?

We define a poster to be a 70cm x 100cm (28 in. x 40 in.) area to which you can affix visually appealing material that describes your research - a single large page, or up to 9 A4/letter sheets, or a mixture thereof. You can arrange the space and orient the poster either horizontally or vertically. Your goal is to prepare the best material (visually appealing and succinct) that effectively communicates your research problem, techniques, results, and what is novel and important about your work. The attendees will also have access to a two-page abstract of your work, distributed in addition to the proceedings.

What and where to submit

You must submit, via email to the address , a two-page abstract (A4 or letter format, two column, font at least 11pt), in PDF format, describing the work. Longer submissions, or formats other than PDF will not be considered. The abstract must include the following information:

  • title of the work;
  • name, institutional affiliations, status (student, faculty, and so on) of each author;
  • an email address of the contact author;
  • possibly, a URL that will provide additional information about your work to the attendees.
In terms of technical content, the abstract should:
  • identify the key contribution of the work being presented in the poster;
  • describe the particular problem being addressed and what makes this problem interesting or important;
  • illustrate your approach is to the problem and the results you achieved.
  • briefly mention open issues related to the problem at hand.

The selection of posters will be made primarily by reading the abstract. Optionally, if available, you can include in the abstract a URL containing the poster itself (or a draft version of it), limited to the material that will fit in the poster's board, which may be or may not be consulted, at the discretion of the reviewers, to help

Your submission will be acknowledged by email within four days after you submit.

Please remember that the abstract should be within the page limit and in PDF format. Other formats will not be accepted.

At the conference, we will distribute the abstracts to all conference attendees in addition to the conference proceedings. Accepted poster authors will have about a month to revise their abstract prior to printing. For the posters, we will provide poster board and glue for mounting the posters.

The SIGCOMM 2006 Poster Committee will select between 15 and 30 of the most interesting and thought-provoking posters.
