ACM SIGCOMM 2014 Call For Papers

The ACM SIGCOMM 2014 conference seeks papers describing significant research contributions to the field of computer and data communication networks. We invite submissions on a wide range of networking research, including, but not limited to:

  • Design, implementation, and analysis of network architectures and algorithms
  • Enterprise, datacenter, and storage area networks
  • SDNs and network programming
  • Experimental results from operational networks or network applications
  • Economic aspects of the Internet
  • Energy aware communication
  • Insights into network and traffic characteristics
  • Network management and traffic engineering
  • Network security and privacy
  • Network, transport, and application-layer protocols
  • Networking issues for emerging applications
  • Fault-tolerance, reliability, and troubleshooting
  • Operating system and host support for networking
  • P2P, overlay, and content distribution networks
  • Resource management, QoS, and signaling
  • Routing, switching, and addressing
  • Techniques for network measurement and simulation
  • Wireless, mobile, ad-hoc, and sensor networks


SIGCOMM is a highly selective conference where full papers typically report novel results firmly substantiated by experimentation, deployment, simulation, or analysis. Submissions can be up to 14 pages in length, in two-column 10pt format. The submission instructions will be posted on the conference website in some time. Note that accepted camera-ready papers will be 12 pages in length, in two-column format with 9pt font.

In addition to the main conference, SIGCOMM 2014 will have a series of co-located workshops, tutorials, a poster and demo session, a travel grant program, and conference best paper and SIGCOMM awards.
