Camera-Ready Instructions

Authors should upload camera-ready versions of their papers to HotCRP by the deadline. If your paper has been assigned a shepherd, you should communicate with your shepherd via HotCRP comments or email; the paper's final version should be approved by the shepherd (as indicated by a HotCRP comment). Final camera-ready papers are due in HotCRP by June 14, 2024 23:59 UTC.

Authors must upload both a PDF of the final version, and the source files used to generate the final version. Final versions will be processed by the ACM Publishing System (TAPS), and must use one of ACM's templates, either MS Word or LaTeX `acmart.cls` provided here: (Note the recent update to LaTeX template in April 2024). Authors are encouraged to read the TAPS documentation to avoid issues and delays:

The eRights email will be sent soon with instructions on completing the form.

If you have questions about the camera-ready process, please contact the SIGCOMM 2024 publication co-chairs Emir Halepovic ( and Michael Seufert (

Paper Formatting

All papers must obey the following formatting requirements to be included in the proceedings. As such, we strongly encourage authors to thoroughly review their final submissions to ensure that they include all the mandatory sections and statements and comply with all the listed requirements.

Format Checker Tool. HotCRP's format checker will report formatting problems, including problems with fonts. Since the format checking tool uses heuristics and can make mistakes, the publication chairs will manually inspect and possibly reject papers with format violations.

Open Access

As part of the eRights process, authors will be given the choice to select an Open Access option or a Closed Access option. If the primary author has an affiliation with an ACM Open institution, then Open Access is free for authors; if not, then selecting Open Access would require a fee. However, regardless of the option authors choose, SIGCOMM has already arranged free access to all SIGCOMM 2024 papers via links from the SIGCOMM 2024 website (a special form of open access called the OpenTOC service).
