Call for Papers, SIGCOMM 2018, August 21-23, 2018, Budapest, Hungary
The ACM SIGCOMM 2018 conference seeks papers describing significant research contributions to the field of data communication networks and networked systems. SIGCOMM’18 takes a broad view of networking research. This includes new ideas relating to (but not limited to) mobile, wide-area, data-center, home, and enterprise networks using a variety of link technologies (wired, wireless, visual, and acoustic), as well as social networks and network architecture. It encompasses all aspects of networks and networked systems, including packet-processing hardware and software, virtualization, mobility, sensors, provisioning and resource management, performance, energy consumption, topology, robustness and security, measurement, diagnosis, verification, privacy, economics and evolution, interactions with applications, internet-of-things, novel applications of machine learning to networking, and usability of underlying networking technologies.
Unlike in previous years, SIGCOMM’18 will not have a separate experience track. However, we do encourage the submission of experience papers that provide detailed technical insight into real-world deployments of novel networking technologies and systems.
In addition to the main conference, SIGCOMM 2018 will have a series of co-located workshops, tutorials, poster and demo sessions, a travel grant program, and conference best paper and SIGCOMM awards.
Abstract submission deadline: Jan. 24, 2018
Paper submission deadline: Jan 31, 2018

Call for Papers, ACM e-Energy 2018, June 12-15, 2018, Karlsruhe, Germany
9th International Conference on Future Energy Systems (ACM e-Energy), June 12-15, 2018, Karlsruhe, Germany
ACM eEnergy is the premier forum for research at the intersection of computing and communication technologies with energy systems. It has established a strong track record for high-quality research in the application of computing and networked systems to make legacy systems more energy-efficient and in the design, analysis, and development of innovative energy systems. The Ninth International Conference on Future Energy Systems (ACM e-Energy) will be held in Karlsruhe, Germany from the 12th to the 15th of June 2018. By bringing together researchers in a single-track conference designed to offer significant opportunities for personal interaction, it is a major forum for shaping the future of this area.

ACM SIGCOMM SOSR Software Systems Award Call for nominations
The ACM SIGCOMM SOSR Software Systems Award is given to an individual or an institution to recognize the development of a software system that has had a significant impact on SDN research, implementations, and tools. The impact may be reflected in the widespread adoption of the system, or of its underlying concepts, by the wider SDN community, either in research projects, in the open-source community, or commercially. The award includes a prize of $1,000. The award is presented at SOSR each year and the winner is invited to give a talk at the conference. 
Nominations should be submitted by email to on or before January 6th, 2018 to be considered for this year’s award. A nomination for the Software Systems Award that is not selected may be re-submitted in following years but after three successive unsuccessful submissions, should not be re-submitted for at least one year.
