Call For Papers

Call For Papers, ACM IMC 2019, Amsterdam, Netherlands
The Internet Measurement Conference (IMC) is a highly selective venue for the presentation of measurement-based research in data communications. The focus of IMC 2019 will be on research that improves the practice of network measurement, illuminates some facet of an operational network, or both. We encourage authors to discuss the implications of their results to future research and/or to operations. We also encourage authors to discuss representativeness and limitations of their work due to coverage of their measurements across space and time.

IMC takes a broad view of contributions that are considered in scope for improving the practice of network measurement, including, but not limited to:

collection and analysis of data that yield new insights about network structure and network performance (e.g., traffic, topology, routing, energy utilization)
collection and analysis of data that yield new insights about application and end-user behavior (e.g., economics, privacy, security, application interaction with protocols)
modeling of network internals and application behavior (e.g., workloads, scaling behavior, assessment of performance bottlenecks)
methods and tools to monitor and visualize network-based phenomena
novel systems and algorithmic techniques that leverage measurement-based findings
advances in data collection, analysis, and storage (e.g., anonymization, querying, sharing)
reappraisal of previous empirical findings
descriptions of challenges and future directions the measurement community should pursue
Operational networks of interest include:

the Internet backbone
edge networks (e.g., home networks, cellular networks, WLANs)
data center networks and cloud computing infrastructure
software-defined networks and network function virtualization
peer-to-peer, overlay, and content distribution networks
infrastructure for online social networks
experimental networks, prototype networks, and future Internetworks
large-scale distributed systems and online services
Authors unsure about topical fit are welcome to contact the program committee co-chairs at imc2019pcchairs@sigcomm.org.

Review process and criteria
IMC 2019 invites two forms of submissions:

Full papers (up to 13 pages for text and figures + unlimited pages for references) that describe original research, with succinctness appropriate to the topics and themes they discuss.
Short papers (up to 6 pages for text and figures + unlimited pages for references) that convey work that is less mature but shows exciting promise, OR offer results that do not merit a full submission. Short papers could articulate a high-level vision and describe challenging future directions that the authors believe the community should tackle; validate, verify, or update important results; or present new ideas that challenge existing assumptions.
Any submission exceeding short paper page-length limit will be evaluated as a full paper.

Authors should only submit original work that has not been published before and is not under submission to any other venue. We will consider full paper submissions that extend previously published short, preliminary papers (including IMC short papers) following the model of the ACM SIGCOMM policy.

IMC 2019 will bestow two awards on paper submissions, a Best Paper award and a Community Contribution award. The best paper award will recognize the outstanding paper at the conference, and all accepted papers are eligible for it. The community contribution award will recognize a paper with an outstanding contribution to the community in the form of a novel dataset, source code distribution, open platform, or other noteworthy service to the community. To be eligible for the community award, the authors must make publicly available their dataset (e.g., through DatCat for Internet measurement data or CRAWDAD for wireless data) or source code (e.g., via github, bitbucket), or have an open working platform, etc., by the camera-ready deadline. The authors indicate their eligibility on the submission form and are also encouraged to include a link to the contribution in the submitted paper itself.

A few accepted papers may be forwarded for fast-track submission to IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking.

Ethical Considerations
Papers describing experiments with users or sensitive user data (e.g., network traffic, passwords, social network information) 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 harm to the individual), and risk mitigation. When appropriate, authors are encouraged to include a subsection describing these issues. Authors may want to consult the Menlo Report for further information on ethical principles and the Allman/Paxson IMC 07 paper for guidance on ethical data sharing.

Note that submitting research for approval by each author’s institutional ethics review body is necessary, but not sufficient – in cases where the PC has concerns about the ethics of the work in a submission, the PC will consider the ethical soundness and justification of any paper, just as it does its technical soundness. The PC takes a broad view of what constitutes an ethical concern, and authors agree to be available at any time during the review process to rapidly respond to queries from the PC chairs regarding ethical considerations. Authors unsure about ethical issues are welcome to contact the program committee co-chairs at imc2019pcchairs@sigcomm.org.

Submission guidelines
All submissions must satisfy the following requirements:

Full papers: up to 13 pages for technical content (including appendices) + unlimited pages for references
Short papers: up to 6 pages for technical content (including appendices) + unlimited pages for references
10-point font for main text; font used in other places (e.g., figures) should be no smaller than 9 point
two-column format, with the size of each column being at most 3.33 x 9.25 inches and the space between columns being at least 0.33 inches letter page size (8.5 x 11 inches)
include names and affiliations of all authors on the title page (no anonymization)
Submissions that do not comply with these requirements will be rejected without review. The sig-alternate-10pt.cls style file satisfies the formatting requirements. Compile your source with options that produce letter page size.
