SIGCOMM is the flagship conference of the Special Interest Group on Data Communication (SIGCOMM), a vital special interest group of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). The event is run once a year, in late summer, with the location varying internationally. The main Conference (3 days, single-track, including a poster session) is accompanied by 2 days of workshops and tutorials on related topics. Attendance is open, and there are some limited student travel grants available.

This year's SIGCOMM will be held in Pisa, Italy, from the 11th to the 15th of September. The event wil start on monday, Sept.11, with tutorial and workshops. It will be followed (tuesday to thursday) by the main Conference and poster sessions, and finally by more workshops on friday.
