ACM SIGCOMM 2019 Posters, Demos, and Student Research Competition

Call for Posters, Demos, and Student Research Competition

The SIGCOMM poster and demo sessions showcase works-in-progress in an informal setting. Topics of interest are the same as research topics in the SIGCOMM conference call for papers. We strongly encourage student and industry submissions. The SIGCOMM 2019 Poster and Demo committee will review all posters and demo proposals. Students must present student posters at the conference. Authors of accepted papers in SIGCOMM 2019 may not submit in this track on the same work as in the paper.

Leading student authors of posters and demos may also indicate if they would like to participate in the ACM Student Research Competition (SRC). The ACM Student Research Competition (SRC), sponsored by Microsoft Research, offers a unique forum for undergraduate and graduate students to present their original research before a panel of judges and attendees at well-known ACM-sponsored and co-sponsored conferences. Winners will advance to ACM Grand Finals of the Student Research Competition to compete against the winners of other ACM conferences. For more information on SRC, please refer to the SRC page at the ACM SIGCOMM 2019 site.

Product-focused, as opposed to research-focused, industrial demos may be more appropriately submitted to the SIGCOMM Industrial Demo track. Please feel free to contact either the Poster and Demo Chairs or the SIGCOMM Industrial Liaison Board if you are unsure which track to submit to.

Camera-Ready Instructions for posters and demos

For each event of SIGCOMM 2019 that publishes proceedings, the proceedings will be produced via the HotCRP site used for the review process. The HotCRP site will collect the final papers and interface with the ACM to manage publication rights for the papers.

The authors must revise the original submission to address the reviewers’ concerns and, if the paper is subject to shepherding, obtain an explicit approval of the final version from the shepherd.

For the final paper to be published, it is imperative to prepare the final version using the new ACM template (using sigconf document type) from the 2019 ACM consolidated template package (you can also use this barebone LaTeX template). The font size must be 9 points. Do not number pages. Embed all the fonts in the PDF file. The length of the final paper with all its content except references must not exceed 2 pages. There is no limit on the number of references. The deadline for camera-ready submissions is July 1, 2019.

As described on the above template webpage, the authors should provide proper indexing information in the final version according to the ACM Computing Classification System (CCS). More information about the ACM CCS is available on ACM CCS website.

Please makes sure all fonts are embedded in the document. On Mac, Windows, and Linux, the 'pdffonts' (Poppler) and Adobe Reader tools can report this information. For more information, please see . .

Open access

While the ACM rights-management tool offers the author to pay for open access to the published paper, SIGCOMM has already arranged free access to all SIGCOMM 2019 papers via non-expiring links to the ACM Digital Library (DL) on the SIGCOMM 2019 website. This is a special form of open access, which the ACM calls the OpenTOC service. Unless the author wants to provide the open access to the paper directly at the ACM DL rather than via the special SIGCOMM 2019 website link, we suggest that the author opts for not paying the open access fee in the ACM rights management tool.

In its bottom-left corner, the first page of the final paper must include a copyright notice that the author receives after filling out the e-Rights form via the ACM rights-management tool on the HotCRP page of the paper. ACM will use its automated system to email this information to the authors. Please set your email spam settings to allow messages from "". The copyright block includes the DOI specific to the paper, rights-management text that depends on the author's choice of a license or copyright transfer, the official name, dates, and location of the event.

If you have questions about the camera-ready process, please contact the SIGCOMM 2019 publication chairs Keith Winstein and Xin Jin.
