Highlights of SIGCOMM 2018

13 Mar

Sergey Gorinsky, Research Associate Professor, IMDEA Networks Institute, Madrid, Spain

In-house Presentation

The Association for Computing Machinery’s Special Interest Group on Data Communication (ACM SIGCOMM) is a leading venue for research in architectures, protocols, technologies, and applications of computer networking and data communication. The ACM SIGCOMM annual conference spans all aspects of networks and networked systems, including packet processing, hardware and software, virtualization, routing, mobility, sensors, energy consumption, novel applications of artificial intelligence to networking, and usability of underlying communication technologies. Its participants include distinguished academics, brilliant students, and representatives of major multinational companies. Centered on its highly selective main conference, SIGCOMM published many landmark works in networking and communications. The conference also involves workshops, tutorials, presentation of demos, posters, industrial demos, student research competition, topic previews, and mentoring sessions. SIGCOMM 2018 met in Budapest on August 20-25. The first visit of ACM SIGCOMM to Eastern Europe became an unqualified success. Encompassing a variety of traditional and newly introduced events, the six-day conference program attracted around 750 attendees overall, with about 700 people registered for the 3-day main conference. This talk reviews the technical main-conference program, highlighting interesting ideas in its papers and identifying emerging research trends.
