Call for Papers
The SIGCOMM 2004 conference seeks papers describing significant research contributions to the field of computer and data communication networks. We invite submissions on network architecture, design, implementation, operations, analysis, measurement, and simulation. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
· Network, transport, and application-layer protocols
· Networking issues for Web, multimedia, and gaming applications
· Routing, switching, and addressing
· Resource management, quality of service, and signaling
· Operating system support for networking
· Wireless, mobile, ad hoc, and sensor networks
· Network management and traffic engineering
· Experimental and measurement results from operational networks
· Network fault-tolerance and reliability, debugging, and troubleshooting
· Peer-to-peer, overlay, and content distribution networks
· Analysis and design of network architectures and algorithms
· Tools and techniques for network measurement and simulation
· Network security, vulnerability, and defenses
· Fundamental insights into network and traffic characteristics
We welcome two categories of paper submissions -- full papers and position papers. As in previous years, SIGCOMM 2004 will have a poster session and student travel grant program. Details will be posted as they become available.
Full papers are no more than 14 pages long and typically report novel results firmly substantiated by experimentation, simulation, or analysis. Guidelines on paper submission and formatting will be provided at a later date.
Position papers are no more than 8 pages long and attempt to shape research directions by offering new perspectives, wisdom, and guidance rather than presenting mature work with quantitative results. More detailed information for authors of position papers will be available on the Web site as the submission deadline draws closer.
Posters are one 30" x 40" (75cm x 100cm) page long, and present ongoing work. Student submissions will be favored.
Tutorials and Workshops
SIGCOMM 2004 will feature tutorials and workshops. The call for workshops can found here. More information on the tutorials and workshops will be available at a later date.
There will also be a Student Paper Award, Student Travel Grants, and a SIGCOMM Award recognizing lifetime contributions. Contact Mark Crovella (firstname.lastname@example.org) to nominate a candidate for the SIGCOMM Award.
