In addition to the main conference, SIGCOMM 2021 will have a series of co-located workshops, tutorials, poster and demo sessions, and conference best paper and SIGCOMM awards.

Deadline for the April 2021 issue of ACM SIGCOMM CCR: December 1

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.
