We welcome returning workshops.

All of the Workshops for SIGCOMM 2018 should have the same deadlines (submission deadline, camera-ready date), to facilitate coordination with other aspects of the conference organization. Deadline extensions should be coordinated with the Workshop Co-chairs and if needed, the Publications Chair.
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.
Individual Workshop organizers will be expected to be responsible for managing their workshop and coordination with the local arrangements chair of SIGCOMM 2018 for facilities, and with publications chairs for camera ready papers.
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 2018 web chair (hosted on the common conference web site).
