***Call for papers***

The Internet Measurement Conference is a highly selective venue for the 
presentation of measurement-based research in data communications.  The 
focus of IMC 2014 will be on papers that either (1) improve the practice of 
measurement or (2) illuminate some facet of an operational network.

IMC takes a broad view of what constitutes an operational network. This view 
includes (but is not limited to):
· the Internet backbone and edge networks (e.g., home networks, cellular 
networks, WLANs)
· data centers and cloud computing infrastructure
· peer-to-peer and content distribution networks
· infrastructure for online social networks
· experimental networks affiliated with the Internet (e.g. overlay networks, 
future internets or other prototype networks)

Types of contributions that the program committee would enjoy receiving 
submissions regarding include (but are not limited to):
· collection and analysis of data that yield new insights about network 
structure and behavior (e.g., traffic, topology, routing, privacy, security, 
energy use, economics, application interaction with network protocols)
· methods and tools to monitor and visualize network-based phenomena
· systems and algorithmic techniques that leverage measurement-based 
findings in novel ways
· advances in data collection and handling (e.g., anonymization, querying, 
storage, facilitating sharing)
· modeling of network structure and behavior (e.g., workload, scalability), 
assessment of performance bottlenecks
· reappraisal of previous empirical findings

Authors unsure whether their paper fits IMC are welcome to contact the 
program committee co-chairs at imc14chairs at cs.wisc.edu.

***Review process and criteria***

· IMC 2014 invites two forms of submissions
o Full papers (up to 14 pages) that describe original research, with 
succinctness appropriate to the topics and themes they discuss.
o Short papers (up to 6 pages for text and figures + up to 1 page for 
references) that convey work that is less mature but shows promise, 
articulate a high-level vision, describe challenging future directions, 
critique current measurement wisdom, or offer results that do not merit a 
full submission.

All submissions that are longer than what is allowed for a short paper will 
be evaluated as full papers.

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 

· Ethical standards for measurement must be considered by all authors. In 
particular, authors must conform to acceptable use policies for domains that 
are probed or monitored, data privacy and anonymity for all personally 
identifiable information (PII) and etiquette for using shared measurement 
data. (See Allman and Paxson, IMC '07.) If applicable, authors are also 
urged to notify parties of security flaws in their products or services in 
advance of publication. Adherence to ethical standards for measurement will 
be a criterion for all submissions, and any violations---including ambiguous 
situations not well described---will be grounds for rejection.

· IMC 2014 will bestow two awards. One award will recognize the outstanding 
paper at the conference, and all accepted papers are eligible for it. The 
other award will recognize a paper that contributes a novel dataset to the 
community. To be eligible for this award, the authors must make their 
dataset publicly available (e.g., through CRAWDAD for wireless data) by the 
time of camera ready submission.

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

***Submission guidelines***

All submissions must satisfy the following requirements:
· up to 14 pages for full papers, or up to 6 pages (+1 for references) for 
short papers
· 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 9.25 x 3.33 
inches and the space between columns being at least 0.33 inches
· letter page size (11 x 8.5 inches)
· include names and affiliations of all authors on the title page (no 

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.
