The ACM CoNEXT conference (sponsored by SIGCOMM) is soliciting site proposals for its 2013 edition.
but in short, putting forward a site proposal calls for:
- providing the names of volunteer General Chairs,
- a site city,
- target dates (the conference is held at the beginning of December),
- together with some initial details on the overall organization,e.g., hotels, conference facilities, possible venues for the conference banquet, etc.
Note that like several other SIGCOMM conferences CoNEXT rotates on a three years cycle between Europe, North America, and a "wildcard". CoNEXT 2010 was in Philadelphia, PA, the 2011 edition was held for the first time in Asia in Tokyo, Japan, and just ended after what was a very successful conference, and the 2012 conference will take place in Nice, France, next December.
As result, we are now targeting a North American location for CoNEXT 2013. However, this is only a "target" and while preference will be given to proposals that conform to this target, strong proposals that don't will definitely be considered.
If you are interested in submitting a site proposal, please check the instructions on the CoNEXT page http://www.sigcomm.org/events/conext-conference/site-proposals , and email me (email@example.com) your proposal before _*May 1st, 2012*_. We are expecting to finalize a site selection by May 31st, 2012. There is still plenty of time before the deadline, but proposals that are submitted early will be given greater consideration.
