Directions for conference Web chairs

SIGCOMM-sponsored conferences host Web content on Typically, ACM will provide a conference web chair with sftp-based access to the host. These instructions are intended to help Web chairs get accounts and get started.

Creating an Account

SIGCOMM-sponsored conference content is hosted on To get an account, use the acm account request form. Required information includes contact information for the information services director, your ACM member number, your web account name, and the URL to which you need to be able to write. You'll want to be a member of group "sigcomm". If you don't know how to fill out any of those fields, do not leave them blank, please ask.

Sometimes, this account request process is unreliable, especially if fields are left blank and ACM staff have to figure out whether the form is legitimate. Please follow up with the information services director (do not use the infodir_sigcomm email address for urgent material) if you receive no response after a few days.

Content Location

All files must be transferred to the ftp server: using explicit FTPS (port 21). This can be done using FileZilla or any other ftp client software.
The home directory is by default where the web server looks for html/php files so all files must be placed there.

Each conference also has a listing under This description of the conference, with lists of steering committee members and instances, is updated separately. Please ask any member of the executive committee, or the information services director, to update the page as needed.

Front page advertisement

The site has a left-column for advertising sigcomm conference offerings. Images should be 128 pixels wide and likely less than 128 pixels high (for fairness). Although only SIGCOMM and CCR are listed here, other SIGCOMM-sponsored conferences are welcome to submit small logo material (also by email to the information-services director). This may be a task for the publicity chair.
