Dear colleague,

The organization committee is most delighted to invite you to ACM SIGCOMM 2007, 
the first SIGCOMM in Asia to be held at Kyoto International Conference Hall in 
Kyoto, Japan. SIGCOMM2007 is the annual conference of the Special Interest 
Group on Data Communication (SIGCOMM), a vital special interest group of the 
Association for Computing Machinery (ACM).

The Web site for the conference is

Paper Submission:               Jan. 31, 2007
Acceptance Notification:        May 4, 2007
Camera Ready Due:               Jun. 5, 2007
Conference:                     Aug. 27-31, 2007

The SIGCOMM 2007 conference seeks papers describing significant research 
contributions to the field of computer and data communication networks. We 
invite submissions on network architecture, design, implementation, operations, 
analysis, measurement, performance, and simulation.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
       - Analysis and design of network architectures and algorithms
       - Experimental and measurement results from operational networks
       - Fundamental insights into network and traffic characteristics
       - Network fault-tolerance and reliability, debugging, and troubleshooting
       - Network management and traffic engineering
       - Network security, vulnerability, and defenses
       - Network, transport, and application-layer protocols
       - Networking issues for Web, multimedia, and gaming applications
       - Operating system and other host support for networking
       - Peer-to-peer, overlay, and content distribution networks
       - Resource management, quality of service, and signaling
       - Routing, switching, and addressing
       - Tools and techniques for network measurement and simulation
       - Wireless, mobile, ad-hoc, and sensor networks

SIGCOMM 2007 solicits full papers up to 12 pages in length, in two-column ACM 
conference format. SIGCOMM is a selective conference where full papers 
typically report novel results firmly substantiated by experimentation, 
simulation, or analysis.

As in previous years, SIGCOMM 2007 will have tutorials, workshops, a poster 
session, a student travel grant program, a GeoDiversity travel grant program, 
and a Student Paper Award. We are also soliciting proposals for tutorials, due 
by Nov 3, 2006. Please contact Tutorial Chairs for further details on 
 	Paul Francis <francis at cs.cornell.edu>
 	Hiroshi Esaki <hiroshi at wide.ad.jp>

SIGCOMM 2007 will hold multiple one day workshops that will be scheduled
Monday August 27 and Friday August 31, 2007, in Kyoto Japan. The SIGCOMM
conference is co-located in Kyoto August 28-30, 2006.

The workshop CFP Web page is:

We invite you to submit workshop proposals on any topic related to computer
communication and packet networking before November 3rd, 2006 to Paul
Francis <francis at cs.cornell.edu>. As this is the first SIGCOMM in Asia, we
encourage proposals that deal with topics of special interest to Asia.

A workshop proposal should contain at least:
 	- a draft call for paper (as complete as possible)
 	- the workshop deadlines (internal and external)
 	- tentative composition of the committees
 	- motivation and rationale for the workshop, expected number of
     	  submissions and participants
 	- list of potential supporters, if any

Important workshop proposal dates:
Workshop Proposal Due:         Nov. 3
Notification of Acceptance:    Nov. 15
Workshop Call for Papers Due:  Dec. 10

Typical workshop dates:
Paper submissions due:         Early March
Paper accept notifications:    Early April
Camera-ready due:              Early May

For more information please contact workshop chairs:
