Welcome

ACM Statement

In the United States, and throughout many regions around the world, current events have brought attention to the urgent need for equality and respect for all individuals. ACM reaffirms its commitment to fostering diversity and inclusion within the global computer science community.  

As an international organization of nearly 100,000 professionals, ACM respects the essential worth of all people and firmly believes that diversity strengthens the scientific enterprise and society as a whole. ACM’s Code of Professional Ethics embodies these principles, and our Diversity and Inclusion Council works to translate them into effective action. 

ACM is committed to creating an environment that welcomes new ideas and perspectives, and where hostility or other harmful behaviors are not tolerated. As an organization, we stand with those who promote inclusivity.


 

SIGCOMM is ACM's professional forum for discussing communications and computer networks.

SIGCOMM members include scientists, engineers, educators and students. They study all aspects of computer communications and networks: analysis, technical design, engineering, measurement and management. Our members are particularly interested in the systems engineering and architectural questions surrounding computer communication.

Special Statement on Freedom of Mobility

SIGCOMM supports a wide variety of activities in the field:

Professional meetings

Publications

Recognition and support for computer networking professionals

    The ACM History Committee runs this program, which has resulted over 35 fellowships awarded since the start of this fellowship program in 2009.   Many of these awards have gone to scholars (graduate students to senior scholars) in the SIGs to support preservation of a SIG’s history.
     
    The submission deadline for proposals is February 15, 2021.
     
    See https://history.acm.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/ACM-fellowship_CFP_2021-final-1.pdf for proposal submission requirements and further details.  
     

    Deadline for the April 2021 issue of ACM SIGCOMM CCR: December 1
      
    The ACM SIGCOMM Computer Communication Review (CCR) newsletter is published every quarter. The deadline for the submission of technical papers, education papers and editorials for the April 2021 issue of CCR is December 1, 2020.

    ACM CoNEXT 2021 -- Call for Organizing Committee
     
    ACM CoNEXT is soliciting proposals from organization committees to host a virtual CoNEXT 2021 conference. As the SIG has opted for all 2021 conferences to be virtual, "site" proposals are simpler as they need not include information typically involved with holding physical events, i.e., venue, hotels, banquet, etc. Below you find the required details. Organization Committee proposals should be less than a single page, in pdf format. Check the details in the online call. Deadline January 15 2021.

    Call for Participation: HotNets 2020 (November 4-6, 2020)
    Call for nominations: IRTF Applied Networking Research Prize (ANRP) 2021
    October 2020 issue of CCR
    -----------------------------------------------------------

    Call for Participation: HotNets 2020 (November 4-6, 2020) 

    In light of continued effects from the COVID-19 pandemic, HotNets 2020 (November 4-6, 2020) will be a fully virtual event.  We will take this opportunity to deploy and try out several new features designed to encourage interaction and discussion at HotNets.  
     
    - In contrast to the invite-only format in previous years, we opened up registration for HotNets 2020 to all members of the community. 
    - We will provide two types of access to the workshop: live interactive zoom sessions for registered attendees, and concurrent streaming YouTube broadcasts for other viewers. 
    - In addition to Zoom/YouTube, we will host parallel discussions and Q&A on Slack, which is also open to the general public.

    Finally, Hotnets 2020 will be a 3-day event (3.5 hours per day) 

    November 4th, 2020 (Wed):   Start: 8:45AM (US Central Time), End: 12:30PM (US Central Time) 
    November 5th, 2020 (Thur):   Start: 9:00AM (US Central Time), End:  12:30PM (US Central Time)
    November 6th, 2020 (Fri):       Start: 9:00AM (US Central Time), End:  12:30PM (US Central Time)

    We hope that this combination of tools and platforms will facilitate more lively discussions on new ideas and future research topics. 

    Registered attendees will receive zoom session information via email, while information on YouTube broadcasts and Slack will be posted soon to the HotNets’20 website (https://conferences.sigcomm.org/hotnets/2020/program.html).  The full program is already posted on this site. Please stay tuned. 

    We look forward to seeing you all at HotNets 2020.

    Call for nominations: Applied Networking Research Prize (ANRP) 2021

    Submit nominations for the ANRP 2021 until 22 November 2020

    The Applied Networking Research Prize is awarded to recognise the best recent results in applied networking, interesting new research ideas of potential relevance to the Internet standards community, and upcoming people that are likely to have an impact on Internet standards and technologies, with a particular focus on cases where these people or ideas would not otherwise get much exposure or be able to participate in the discussion.

    We encourage nominations of researchers with relevant research results, interesting ideas, and new perspectives. The award provides a cash prize, and will offer the winner the opportunity to present and discuss their work with the engineers, network  operators, policy makers, and scientists that participate in the Internet  Engineering Task Force (IETF) and its research arm, the Internet Research Task Force (IRTF). Both self- and third-party nominations for this prize are encouraged.

    More details, and how to nominate, at https://irtf.org/anrp/
