Call for Posters and Demos

UCLA, Los Angeles, CA, USA on August 21-25, 2017


The SIGCOMM poster and demo sessions showcase works-in-progress in an informal setting. Topics of interest are the same as research topics in the SIGCOMM conference call for papers. We strongly encourage student and industry submissions. The SIGCOMM 2017 Poster and Demo committee will review all posters and demo proposals.

Please note that product-focused, as opposed to research-focused, industrial demos may be more appropriately submitted to the SIGCOMM Industrial Demo track.

Why should you submit a Poster or a Demo?

Presenting a poster is a great opportunity, especially for students, to obtain interesting and valuable feedback on ongoing research from a knowledgeable crowd at the conference. Accepted posters and demos will be published as a two-page abstract for the archived conference proceedings. We will summarize accepted submissions in an editorial note in the SIGCOMM newsletter, the Computer Communication Review (CCR). Students who are submitting posters are highly encouraged to examine if they are eligible for student travel grants.

Poster and Demo submissions may qualify for the Student Research Competition, see http://conferences.sigcomm.org/sigcomm/2017/src.html.

Call for Industrial Demos

UCLA, Los Angeles, CA, USA on August 21-25, 2017


The industrial demo sessions at SIGCOMM 2015 and 2016 had a great turnout and positive feedback, so the Industrial Demos session will return for SIGCOMM 2017. The industrial demo session showcases demos from industry in the area of networking, networked systems, as well as new forms of network intelligence and networked applications. The objective of this session is to bring together industry and academia around demos of innovative and cutting-edge networking technology and products.

Why Present Industrial Demos at SIGCOMM?

An industrial demo is an opportunity for companies to show industrial leadership and innovative thinking. Presenting cutting edge industrial technology will attract top academics to work on problems that are relevant to industry and help push forward the frontier of industrial knowledge. The industrial demo session is also a great recruiting opportunity. SIGCOMM attracts students from the most selective universities around the world.
