Conference Call for Papers




The ACM SIGCOMM 2019 conference seeks papers making significant research

contributions to the field of data communication networks and networked

systems. The conference takes a broad view of networking research, which

includes new ideas relating (but not limited) to:

. Different network types, layers, and devices:

o Wide-area, data-center, home, enterprise

o Sensors and Internet of Things

o Network access in remote or under-served areas

o Wireless and mobility

o Routers, middleboxes, network functions, end-host network stacks

o Link and transport layers

o Applications, including distributed systems and social networks

o Virtual networks and SDNs

o Future network architectures: clean slate and evolution

. Aspects and properties of networks:

o Correctness and performance

o Security and privacy

o Fault tolerance

o Energy consumption

o Usability

o Emergent properties

o Management

o Resource allocation, provisioning and planning

o Economics

o Topology

. Different evaluation methods:

o Theory

o Experiments

o Measurement

o Deployment and experience

We expect submissions to be daring and emphasize novelty and creativity.

We recognize that more novel concepts can be harder to fully develop and

evaluate, and the review process will take this into account. We

encourage authors to discuss the limitations of their ideas in addition

to the benefits.

Unlike some previous years, SIGCOMM 2019 will not have a separate

experience track. However, we do encourage the submission of experience

papers, particularly from industry, that provide detailed technical

insight into real-world deployments of novel networking technologies and


In addition to the main conference, SIGCOMM 2019 will have a series of

co-located workshops, tutorials, poster and demo sessions, a travel

grant program, and conference best paper and SIGCOMM awards.

For more information about SIGCOMM 2019, please see


Submissions should report novel results that are supported by

experimentation, deployment, simulation, or analysis. Submissions must

be in 2-column, 10-point format and can be up to 12 pages long, with as

many additional pages as necessary for references.

New in 2019: Submissions and final papers may include appendices

(following references, also not counting against the 12 pages).

Appendices will not be considered in reviews, so we caution authors to

ensure that the core paper is complete and self-contained. (For example,

if the appendix provides details of a proof or experiment, the body

should summarize the key result.) For accepted papers, the shepherd will

review appendices and must approve their need. Appendices may also

include non-traditional material, such as videos, datasets, code, etc.

Detailed submission instructions can be found

Ethical Concerns

New in 2019: All papers must include, in the main body of the paper, a

statement about ethical issues. This could be simply the sentence \”This

work does not raise any ethical issues.\” If the work involves human

subjects or any potentially sensitive data (e.g., user traffic or social

network information, evaluation of censorship, etc), the paper should

clearly discuss these issues, perhaps in a separate subsection.

Papers must follow basic precepts of ethical research and subscribe to

community norms. These include: respect for privacy, secure storage of

sensitive data, voluntary and informed consent if users are placed at

risk, avoiding deceptive practices when not essential, beneficence

(maximizing the benefits to an individual or to society while minimizing

potential harms to an individual), and risk mitigation. Authors may want

to consult the Menlo Report for further information on ethical

principles, and they may find the Allman/Paxson paper in IMC 2007

helpful for a perspective on ethical data sharing.

Many organizations have an ethics review process (sometimes called an

Institutional Research Board, IRB). In some cases, research work may

clearly have no human subjects, and formal institutional review may not

be required. (However, a sentence in the paper stating this evaluation

is still required.) In many cases, IRB involvement is appropriate. IRB

approval of research is an important factor (and should be mentioned),

but the TPC will still evaluate ethical soundness of the work, just as

they evaluate technical soundness.

If there are questions about the ethics process, please contact the

program committee co-chairs. The PC takes a broad view of what

constitutes an ethical concern, and the TPC chairs may reach out to

authors during the review process if questions arise.

Research Reproducibility

ACM is promoting research reproducibility by encouraging papers to

document the artifacts needed for others to reproduce their work. ACM

has details at They

will award accepted papers a “reproducibility badge†if the paper

provides pointers to public code and other information as described at

the above link. Authors who wish to participate in this process should

document such information in an appendix to the paper. Information about

reproducibility is not required at paper submission, but is required at

camera ready. As an appendix, it will need to be provided to the

shepherd with adequate time for review. While we encourage authors to

participate, formal participation is not a factor in SIGCOMM reviewing.

Important dates

SIGCOMM 2019 plans to hold multiple one-day workshops in conjunction

with the conference, to be held in Beijing, China, August 19-23, 2019.

Workshops will take place on Monday, August 19 and Friday, August 23.

We invite you to submit workshop proposals on any topic related to the

broad set of research and application areas covered by the SIGCOMM

conference, including topics in network research, practice, and

education. Topics that represent new research areas and directions are

particularly welcome.

A workshop proposal should contain the following information:

. Motivation and rationale for the workshop.

. A Call for Papers (CFP) draft, as complete as possible.

. The workshop schedule on submission deadline, acceptance

notification, and camera ready date. See below for guidelines on SIGCOMM

camera ready date. The workshop schedule must permit the camera ready

paper to be prepared in advance of this date.

. Names and affiliations of the organizers, a tentative

composition of the committees. Please indicate whether prospective TPC

members have been contacted, and whether they have accepted the


. Workshop format, including expected number of presented papers,

invited talks, panels, demonstrations, etc.

. Expected number of participants and the expected number of

submissions (if appropriate).

. Prior history of this workshop, if any, including number of

submissions, number of accepted papers, and attendee count. If the

workshop was co-located with another conference please include details

and a brief description why SIGCOMM is a more appropriate venue.

. If the workshop is interdisciplinary, please provide details

about your plans to advertise to other communities and how you intend to

encourage participation at the workshop.

. If appropriate, a brief explanation of how the workshop relates

to other workshops and conferences on similar topics.

. If appropriate, the financial support the workshop intends to

receive from a third-party.

The workshop organizers should also take into account the following

practical considerations:

. We expect to have rooms in two sizes: for approximately 50-100


. A/V (projector and screen) will be provided in all workshop

rooms, which may also be equipped with microphone and speakers.

. There will be Wi-Fi coverage in all areas of the conference,

including the workshop rooms. Any specific networking requirements

should be stated in the proposal.

. We will require all workshops to have identical start, end and

break times, though yet to be determined at this point.

. Individual Workshop organizers are expected to manage their

workshop and coordinate with the local arrangements chair of SIGCOMM

2019 for facilities, and with publications chairs for camera ready


. Individual Workshop organizers will be responsible for setting

up the paper submission site and review process for the selected

workshops and their individual web page design in coordination with the

SIGCOMM 2019 web chair (hosted on the common conference web site).

If you have any further questions about your workshop proposal, do not

hesitate to contact the workshop chairs.
