Technical Program

Call for Papers

The ACM SIGCOMM Latin American Workshop on Data Communication Networks (LANCOMM) aims to foster a higher representation of Latin American researchers working in data communication networks at SIGCOMM, as well as bridging Latin American research groups. LANCOMM serves as a meeting point for Latin American researchers to share new ideas and experiences and to discuss the challenges linked to the development of data communication networks in Latin America.

Topics of Interest

We solicit stimulating, original, previously unpublished ideas on completed work, position papers, and/or work-in-progress papers in the form of extended abstracts. We further encourage papers that propose new research directions or could generate lively debate at the workshop. We invite submissions on a wide range of networking research topics, including, but not limited to:

  • Network architectures and algorithms
  • Experimental results from operational networks or network applications
  • Energy-aware communication
  • Network management
  • Network security and privacy
  • Network, transport, and application-layer protocols
  • Fault-tolerance, reliability, and troubleshooting
  • P2P, overlay, and content distribution networks
  • Resource management, QoS, and signaling
  • Routing, traffic engineering, switching, and addressing
  • Wireless, mobile, and sensor networks
  • Delay tolerant networks, satellite networks
  • Big data analytics and platforms in networking
  • Data mining, statistical modeling, and machine learning in networking
  • Innovative uses of network data beyond communication, IoT, and power grids
  • SDN, NFV and network programming

To foster participation of Latin American researchers at LANCOMM, we will give preference to papers coming from Latin American research groups, or addressing problems related to data communication networks of particular interest in Latin America.

Submission Instructions

Submitted extended abstracts must be in the form of a single PDF file of three (3) pages long (two-column 10pt ACM format), including figures, tables, and references. Papers must include author names and affiliations for single-blind peer reviewing by the PC. Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their papers at the workshop. Submissions must be original, unpublished work. Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library. Publication at LANCOMM does not preclude later publication. Paper registration and submission can be done at:
