All submitted papers will be judged based on their quality and relevance through double-blind reviewing, where the identities of the authors are withheld from the reviewers. Consult the Anonymity tips page for information on preparing a manuscript for double-blind review. Authors of accepted papers will need to sign an ACM copyright release form and present their paper at the conference. The Proceedings of the conference will be published as a special issue of ACM SIGCOMM Computer Communication Review. The Program Committee may also select a few papers for possible publication in the IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking. Electronic copies of the accepted papers will be published on the SIGCOMM 2000 web site prior to the conference unless authors specifically request that this not be done.
