Call for Nominations, the SIGCOMM rising star award
 
Nominations for the SIGCOMM Rising Star Award are due by July 15th 2019.
 
Each year, ACM SIGCOMM presents a "Rising Star" Award, recognizing a young researcher - an individual within 10 years from receiving their Ph.D. or equivalent degree - who has made outstanding research contributions to the field of communication networks during this early part of his or her career. Depth, impact, and novelty of the researcher's contributions will be key criteria upon which the Rising Star award committee evaluate the nominees. Also of particular interest are strong research contributions made independently from the nominee's PhD advisor.
 
All nominations should be sent to the SIGCOMM awards chair.
