Paper Submission Guidelines

SIGCOMM requires that papers not be submitted simultaneously to any other conference or publication, and that submissions not be previously published. Authors of accepted papers will need to sign an ACM copyright release form. Electronic copies of the camera-ready papers will be published on the conference web site before the conference, unless authors specifically request that this not be done.

To submit papers to the SIGCOMM 2007 conference, please read carefully the anonymity and formatting guidelines on this page and make sure that your submission complies with the requirements.
Then go to the paper submission site to: (the submission site will be live as of Friday January 12, 2007).

These are hard deadlines and no extensions will be given.
In case of problems with the paper submission site you can contact

Anonymity Guidelines

All submitted papers will be judged based on their quality and relevance through double-blind reviewing, where the identities of the authors are withheld from the reviewers. As an author, you are required to make a good faith effort to preserve the anonymity of your submission, while at the same time allowing the reader to fully grasp the context of related past work, including your own. Common sense and careful writing will go a long way towards preserving anonymity. Additionally, please take the following steps when preparing your submission:

The requirement for anonymity is not meant to extend beyond the submission process to the detriment of your research. In particular, you may circulate your submission among colleagues or discuss it on a mailing list if you see fit.

Formatting Guidelines

All submissions must follow strictly the format and size constraints indicated below. Your goal as an author is to produce a clearly readable submission within these constraints. Please refrain from exceeding these limits, because longer submissions and/or papers with modified margins or fonts will not be reviewed.

We will use an automatic tool that checks if your submitted paper violates the following guidelines. This automated PDF-checker tool is integrated into our web conference management system. After you upload your paper, you can use it yourself. The tool will tell you whether or not you pass a variety of checks. If you fail the basic tests, please correct your paper and upload a new version. This tool will be used as a guideline to identify non-confirming papers. No paper will be rejected due to format violations without being hand checked first. Even though the guidelines only allow 55 lines per page, on your last page only, you may have more because we are allowing 9pt font for the bibliography. There is no need for concern in this case.
