Call For Posters, ACM IMC 2019, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The 2019 Internet Measurement Conference will include a poster session. This year’s iteration of IMC is different in that posters can be submitted to one of two tracks. Topics of interest include all topics listed on the general IMC 2019 call-for-papers.

Reproducibility Track

The reproducibility track solicits work attempting to reproduce the results by an earlier publication. Accepted submissions to this track may be fast-forwarded for publication in ACM SIGCOMM Computer Communications Review. The submissions must follow the same submission requirements as full papers, but are limited to 4 pages plus 1 page for references. Authors must present their results as a poster at the conference. Authors must only submit original work that has not been published before and is not under submission to any other venue.

Early Work, Tools, and Datasets Track

This track is an opportunity for researchers to discuss their early/ongoing work, tools, and datasets with attendees of IMC. Posters in this track are not publications; the goal is to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas with peers from the community. We look for early work of interest to the community, even if it is not yet complete, and for tools or datasets that are of use to the community, even if the tool or dataset by itself may not warrant a paper. Submissions should not be previously published in a workshop, conference, or journal. Previously presented poster and demo ideas are OK, as are descriptions of previously published tools/datasets that have new features. The submission format is text-only abstracts. Submission is double blind so please do not include any author names, affiliations, etc., and ensure that your submission text has been blinded appropriately according to the guidelines. Submissions are limited to 500 words.

Review process, criteria, and submissions guidelines

All submissions undergo a peer review process with at least two reviewers. For the Early Work, Tools, and Datasets track, we hope to take as many posters as we can support at the venue, with the goal of sharing early results rather than providing final work.

The same submission requirements as full papers will be applied (i.e., submissions are double-blind, please refer to the guidelines). For submissions to the reproducibility track, this also means that these must satisfy the following requirements:

Submissions that do not comply with these requirements will be rejected without review. The new ACM template style file satisfies the formatting requirements, provided you compile your source with options that produce letter page size and 10-point fonts. The following settings in your LaTeX source should achieve that (but please verify the output):


As an example, we also provide the Latex CoNext18 template for ACM conference proceedings, which you can make use of.
