SIGCOMM 2010 - Call for Posters

The SIGCOMM poster session showcases work-in-progress in an informal setting. Topics of interest are the same as research topics in the SIGCOMM conference call for papers.

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 2010 may not submit a poster on the same work in those papers.

Student Research Competition

For the first time, the SIGCOMM poster session will also serve as an ACM student research competition. Qualified entrants must have current ACM student membership, have graduate or undergraduate student status at the time of submission (May 2010, below), and be submitted by a single student author. Supervisors are not permitted to coauthor the poster. (Please contact the poster chairs if this restriction represents a hardship.) Undergraduates and graduate students will be treated in separate divisions. (Students starting their first year of graduate school at the time of the conference will be considered as undergraduates.) A small travel supplement is made available to accepted entrants: please also submit applications for travel grant support. The ACM SRC program is sponsored by Microsoft Research. Winners will advance to ACM Grand Finals of the Student Research Competition to compete against the winners of other ACM conferences.


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. In addition, some submissions will be forwarded for publication to ACM SIGCOMM's newletter, the ACM Computer Communication Review (CCR).

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 A0 paper size in portrait mode (841x1189mm), to which you can affix visually appealing material that describes your research. Alternatively, you can use the space as a continuum. You should 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.

Note that you do not submit such a large-format image; only an abstract describing in text what the poster would present.

What and Where to Submit

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

Submissions are single blind, so please include authors' names and affiliation.


The abstract should clearly state:

In the final version of the abstract, you should include a URL that provides additional information about your work to the 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. At the conference, we will distribute the abstracts to all conference attendees.
