Internet Measurement Conference 2003
Sponsored by ACM SIGCOMM and in cooperation with USENIX
October 27-29, 2003
Miami, Florida, USA

The Internet Measurement Conference is a two and a half day event focusing on Internet measurement and analysis, following on the success of the 2001 Internet Measurement Workshop and the 2002 Internet Measurement Workshop. Submissions should contribute to the current understanding of how to collect or analyze Internet measurements, or give insight into how the Internet behaves. Examples of relevant topics are:

Papers that do not in some fashion rely on measuring Internet properties are out of scope.

The workshop is open to two forms of submissions:

Submissions must be in electronic form, as plain text, Postscript, or PDF documents. The submission must conform to the page limits stated above, and the main text body must be written in a 10 point (or larger) serif font. All manuscripts must be in English. Submissions that do not comply with these requirements will be unread.

Submissions must be registered in advance. Registration will be confirmed via email, including the assignment of a paper number. The top of the first page of each submitted paper should include the title of the paper, the authors, the registration number, and the number of pages in the submission.

Submission instructions.

Important dates:

All full papers and extended abstracts accepted for presentation at the workshop will be published by ACM in proceedings. In addition to the published proceedings, the Program Committee may also select a few papers for fast-track submission for possible publication in IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking. There may also be an opportunity to present some papers that are not accepted in a poster session.

The workshop will present a best student paper award for the top paper with a student as the primary author and contributor. A limited number of travel grants will be available to students who are unable to secure funding from their advisors.

Note: We have been aware of several non-U.S. researchers who have had difficulty obtaining a visitor visa to attend technical conferences in the U.S. We suggest that such researchers apply for a U.S. visa as soon as possible due to the known delays. ACM will attempt to provide a letter of support when requested. Requests for visa support letters should be sent to
