Call For Proposals: ACM SIGCOMM 2012 Workshops

SIGCOMM 2012 is soliciting innovative ideas for new and recurring workshops. SIGCOMM 2012 will hold multiple one-day workshops in conjunction with the conference, to be held in Helsinki, Finland, August 13 to 17, 2012. Workshops will take place on Monday August 13 and Friday August 17. We invite you to submit workshop proposals on any topic related to the broad set of research and application areas covered the by SIGCOMM conference and SIG.

SIGCOMM 2012 workshops can take any of the following forms:

  • Workshops that publish early results in emerging areas
  • Teaching workshops that provide hands-on experience in area of general interest to the SIGCOMM community, e.g., cloud programming, mobile apps, PHY Layer programming, etc.
  • New and returning workshops. For returning workshops, we are waiving the “two-and-out” rule. Workshops that have appeared twice before at SIGCOMM are welcome to apply again.

A workshop proposal should contain at least the following information:

  • Motivation and rationale for the workshop
  • For teaching workshops, a draft of the syllabus; otherwise a draft Call For Papers (CFP), as complete as possible
  • The workshop deadlines (internal and external)
  • Names and affiliations of main organizers. If the workshop is not a teaching workshop, include a tentative composition of the committees (as complete as possible). Please indicate whether prospective TPC members have been contacted, and whether they have accepted the invitation. We strongly discourage speculative TPC listings.
  • Workshop format, i.e., expected number of presented papers, invited talks, panels, demonstrations, etc.
  • Expected number of participants. Further, if the workshop is not a teaching workshop, please include the expected number of submissions
  • Prior history of this workshop, if any, including number of submissions, number of accepted papers, and attendee count. If the workshop was co-located with another conference please include details and a brief description why SIGCOMM is a more appropriate venue.
Note that workshop format itself should favor interaction among participants as well as community building.
