Call for Nominations - CCR Editor

CCR is SIGCOMM's newsletter.  It is published quarterly and publishes 
both peer-reviewed technical papers and non-peer reviewed editorial 
content.  It also serves as a forum for the publication of reports from 
SIG's sponsored workshops and conferences, and as of 2012 the best of 
CCR papers appear for presentation at ACM SIGCOMM. Publication of the 
newsletter is overseen by the CCR Editor with the help of an Editorial 
Board consisting of Area Editors.  The CCR editor manages the paper 
submission, review, and publication process together with the Editorial 
Board.  Reviews are currently managed through and papers are 
published on both the ACM DL and CCR Online, although the latter may end 
now that access to CCR papers in the ACM DL is open-access.
In addition to the above responsibilities, the CCR editor also solicits 
editorial submissions and over the years has launched a number of 
initiatives aimed at broadening the impact and scope of CCR.  One such 
example was the creation of an artifacts evaluation committee tasked 
with handling artifact submissions either directly or for papers 
published in some of the SIG's sponsored conferences. Another more 
recent is the exploration of podcasts, to be hosted on the DL, to 
commemorate the SIG's 50th birthday.
The term of the current CCR Editor, Olivier Bonaventure, is coming to an 
end and the SIGCOMM EC is issuing an open call for nominations to 
identify his replacement. In addition to continuing the tradition of 
quality and innovation that has been CCR's trademark, as we move some of 
the publication aspects into the ACM DL and explore other means of 
offloading logistical support, the new CCR Editor will have the 
opportunity to launch new initiatives aimed at best serving the needs of 
our community.
Interested candidates should submit by email to the SIG Chair 
( a short two-page statement highlighting the experience 
they bring to the position and articulating their vision for the 
newsletter, a link to a recent CV, and a list of three names that the 
SIGCOMM EC could contact for references.
