Conference registration for ACM IMC 2014 is now closed, since we have reached our attendance capacity of 150 for the event. Please contact the General Chair via email if you would like to be added to the standby list for the conference, in case there are any last-minute cancellations.

The full technical program is available online, including PDF versions of papers. The program chairs have also provided a thoughtful rationale for why public reviews of papers are not provided this year.

Here is a Facebook group for discussions about the conference or on-site logistical coordination.

ACM has recently passed an anti-harassment policy for all of its sponsored conferences. IMC 2014 is proud to endorse the new policy, a version of which appears below.

IMC 2014 Anti-Harassment Policy

The open exchange of ideas and the freedom of thought and expression are central to ACM’s aims and goals. These require an environment that recognizes the inherent worth of every person and group, that fosters dignity, understanding, and mutual respect, and that embraces diversity. For these reasons, ACM is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for participants at our events and in our programs. Harassment is unwelcome or hostile behavior, including speech that intimidates, creates discomfort, or interferes with a person's participation or opportunity for participation, in a conference, event or program. Harassment in any form, including but not limited to harassment based on alienage or citizenship, age, color, creed, disability, marital status, military status, national origin, pregnancy, childbirth- and pregnancy-related medical conditions, race, religion, sex, gender, veteran status, or any other status protected by laws in which the conference or program is taking place, will not be tolerated. Harassment includes the use of abusive or degrading language, intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. A response that the participant was “just joking,” or “teasing,” or being “playful,” will not be accepted. Individuals violating these standards may be sanctioned or excluded from further participation at the discretion of the organizers or responsible committee.

If you believe that you have been harassed at IMC 2014, or notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other related concerns, you are encouraged to report the incident in confidence to the conference organizers (General Chair Carey Williamson or Local Arrangements Chair Shira Gordon), to the SIGCOMM Chair (S. Keshav), or to the SIGCOMM Vice-Chair (Renata Teixeira).

We thank you for helping to create a welcoming environment for all members of our community.
