8th ACM Conference on Information-Centric Networking (ICN 2021), Sept. 22–24, 2021
Call for Posters/Demos
The ICN poster and demo sessions are intended to showcase works-in-progress. Topics of interest are the same as those listed in the main track call for papers. We strongly encourage both student and industry submissions. Submissions should be accompanied by a two-page extended abstract, which will be published in the conference proceedings.
This year’s ICN will take place virtually. Presenters will need to record a short video explaining their poster or demo and participate in discussions during a dedicated session.
The posters and demos submitted to ACM ICN 2021 must be original and cannot be concurrently submitted to other workshops or conferences during the ACM ICN 2021 posters and demos review period. All dual submissions will be rejected without review.
Why should you submit a poster or a demo?
Presenting a poster is a great opportunity, especially for students, to obtain interesting and valuable feedback on ongoing research from a knowledgeable crowd at the conference. Accepted posters and demos will be published as a two-page abstract for the archived conference proceedings.
What to submit
You must submit a two-page abstract in PDF format that describes your work. The abstract should clearly state:
- (a) the problem being addressed,
- (b) what makes this problem interesting,
- (c) your approach, and
- (d) the key contribution.
Feel free to add a link to a preliminary version of your video.
Preparation of Abstracts
Submissions will be reviewed through a single-blind process and must adhere conflict of interest policies the same as for the main conference papers (note that unlikes the main track submissions, the poster/demo submissions do not need to be anonymized).
Abstracts may be up to two pages in length, excluding references, following the ACM SIGCOMM format (10pt font,

The abstracts of accepted posters and demos will be available to all attendees at the conference.
