ACM IMC 2016 Works-in-Progress Session

alt text

The 2016 Internet Measurement Conference will include a Work-in-Progress, Tools, and Datasets (WIP) session on Monday, November 14, 2016 (17:45-18:45, directly following the last main conference session).

The WIP session is an opportunity for researchers to give a very short presentation at IMC about Works-in-Progress as well as tools or datasets that are available to the community. The WIP is not a publication venue, but a forum for the exchange of ideas with peers from the community. The format will be short “lightning” talks with time for just a one or two questions afterward.

Call for Works in Progress

Topics of interest include all topics listed on the general IMC 2016 call-for-papers, but as a WIP session, we look for early work of interest to the community, even if it is not yet complete, and for tools or datasets that of use to the community, even if the tool or dataset by itself may not warrent a full paper.

A summary of the WIP presentations will be included as an editorial in SIGCOMM CCR. Presenters may opt out of having their WIP covered in this article, but the default will be to include a summary of each presentation.

The WIP session chair is David Choffnes; please contact him for questions.

Review process, criteria and Submissions Guidelines

We expect to take many works-in-progress, with the goal of sharing early results rather than providing final work. 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.

We expect to lightly review submissions for appropriateness, and we may prioritze for time. There will be a “soft” deadline at which point we will select submissions for inclusion in the program and post it publicly. Space permitting, we will include WIP submissions up until the day before the event.

The submission format is text-only abstracts, along with author names and affiliations. You are limited to 500 words, and we will not accept or review any PDFs.

The submission site is here, but note that the program is currently full and any new submissions will be waitlisted in case of no-shows.

Ethical Considerations

WIP talks, tools, and datasets have the same ethical considerations as general IMC talks (as described in the general IMC 2016 call-for-papers).
