ACM SIGCOMM 2015 Call For Workshop Proposals

SIGCOMM 2015 is soliciting proposals for new and recurring workshops. SIGCOMM 2015 will hold multiple one-day workshops in conjunction with the conference, to be held in London from August 17–21, 2015. Workshops will take place on Monday, August 17 and Friday, August 21.

We invite you to submit workshop proposals on any topic related to the broad set of research and application areas covered by SIGCOMM. We welcome workshops on topics in network research, practice, and education. The workshop format itself should favor interaction among participants and community building. We welcome returning workshops.

A workshop proposal should contain at least the following information:

  • Motivation and rationale for the workshop.
  • A draft Call for Papers (CFP), as complete as possible.
  • The workshop deadlines, both internal and external. See below for guidelines on important external guidelines.

  • Expected number of participants and the expected number of submissions (if appropriate).
  • 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.
