SIGCOMM 2010 - Call for Demos

The SIGCOMM demo session showcases technical demonstrations, exhibits, and prototypes. Research demonstrations should present innovative research prototypes that show new research related to the topics included in the SIGCOMM conference call for papers.

What and Where to Submit

Please submit a three-page abstract describing the work to The decision will be taken primarily by reading the abstract.


The abstract should include:

Accepted demos will be expected to contribute a two-page abstract for the conference proceedings or archive. Obviously, this will not include details about setup time and equipment, but should instead focus on the idea and include screenshots or other images from the live demonstration as needed. At the conference, we will distribute the abstracts to all attendees.


Prepare your abstract using ACM conference style, modified to 10pt. Concretely, two columns, minimum 10pt times with 0.75 inch margins and 1/3 inch space between columns.

The abstract must be within the page limit and in PDF format. Word documents will not be accepted.

All demo proposals will be reviewed by the SIGCOMM 2010 Poster and Demo committee. Some demos may be invited for publication as extended abstracts at ACM SIGCOMM's newsletter, the ACM SIGCOMM Computer Communication Review (CCR).
