ACM SIGCOMM 2023, New York City, US

Call for Workshop Proposals

SIGCOMM 2023 plans to hold multiple one-day/half-day workshops in conjunction with the main conference, to be held in New York City, US, between September 10 and September 14, 2023.

We invite you to submit workshop proposals on any topic related to the broad set of research and application areas covered by the SIGCOMM conference, including topics in network research, practice, and education. Topics that represent new research areas and directions are particularly welcome. The deadline for receiving proposals is February 28, 2023.

A workshop proposal should contain the following information:

  • Motivation and rationale for the workshop.

  • A Call for Papers (CFP) draft, as complete as possible.

  • The workshop schedule on submission deadline and acceptance notification.

  • Names and affiliations of the organizers, a tentative composition of the committees. Please indicate whether prospective TPC members have been contacted, and whether they have accepted the invitation.

  • Workshop format, including expected number of presented papers, invited talks, panels, demonstrations, etc.

  • 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.

  • If the workshop is interdisciplinary, please provide details about your plans to advertise to other communities and how you intend to encourage participation at the workshop.

  • If appropriate, a brief explanation of how the workshop relates to other workshops and conferences on similar topics.

  • If appropriate, the financial support the workshop intends to receive from a third-party.

The workshop organizers should also take into account the following practical considerations:

  • All workshops are planned to be held in person, in New York City, US. We will continuously monitor the Covid situation and assess whether a deviation in these plans is warranted.

  • We will require all workshops to have identical start, end and break times, though yet to be determined at this point.

  • Individual Workshop organizers are expected to manage their workshop and coordinate with the local chair for facilities at the venue and with the publications chairs for camera-ready papers.

  • Individual Workshop organizers will be responsible for setting up the paper submission site and review process for the selected workshops and their individual web page design in coordination with the SIGCOMM 2023 web chairs (hosted on the common conference web site).

If you have any further questions about your workshop proposal, do not hesitate to contact the workshop chairs. We note again: the deadline for receiving proposals is February 28, 2023.
