    has selected one or more papers written entirely or primarily by full time students to receive this award each year An annual SIGCOMM Award for lifetime achievement in and contribution to the field of data communications was created in 1989 to recognize a person whose work over the course of his or her career represents a significant contribution to the field and a substantial influence on the work and perceptions of others in the field The first Award went to Paul Baran and has in subsequent years honored David Clark Leonard Kleinrock Hubert Zimmerman Sandy Fraser Bob Kahn Paul Green and David Farber SIGCOMM has enjoyed a long history of collaboration with other professional societies stretching back to the first joint Data Communications Symposium with the IEEE Computer Society shortly after its founding in 1969 In the 1970s SIGCOMM and SIGOPS co sponsored several conferences and workshops including the 1975 Interprocess Communications Workshop at which one of the papers included in this retrospective was presented The series of Data Communications Symposia came to an end after 1985 when SIGCOMM s own Symposium became an annual event In 1991 we began co sponsoring the annual Computers Freedom and Privacy conference with SIGCAS Computers and Society and SIGSAC Security Audit and Control and in 1993 joined SIGBIO SIGBIT SIGCHI SIGGRAPH SIGIR and SIGOIS to launch the ACM Multimedia Conferences The first International Conference on Mobile Computing and Networking for which SIGCOMM has teamed with SIGACT SIGMETRICS SIGMOD and SIGOPS will be held on November 14 15 1995 and is expected to become a regular annual addition to the ACM conference calendar We have also joined with the IEEE Computer and Communication Societies to co publish the IEEE ACM Transactions on Networking an immediately successful refereed journal that first appeared in February 1992 Finances SIGCOMM enjoys a healthy and growing fund balance and has had no difficulty establishing and adhering to a balanced budget during the past five years The SIG s well established and long term financial health permitted the executive committee to reduce regular membership dues from 22 to 19 starting with new memberships and renewals in calendar year 1995 At SIGCOMM s annual business meeting conducted during the Conference on August 30 1995 the following financial summary was presented by the secretary treasurer 1 Financial Summary 1995 in thousands Non conference Revenue 131 Non conference Expense 145 Net non conference 14 Conference Revenue 228 Conference Expense 178 Net conference

non conf Partial List CCR SIGCOMM95 Proceedings 58 East European 3 Student Travel 10 Special Projects 9 Net 48 non conference Conferences In addition to the many conferences to which it lends in cooperation with support SIGCOMM is directly responsible for four major ACM technical conferences The SIGCOMM Conference The annual SIGCOMM conference continues to be one of the most highly regarded venues for the presentation of current research and experimental results by members of the data communication and networking community Survey results show that of the 220 on average conference attendees about 75 are core SIGCOMM participants for whom the SIGCOMM conference is a regular and important part of their professional schedules Over the past decade SIGCOMM s officers have tried to arrange for the annual Conference to be held in a variety of venues in the eastern and western halves of North America and in Europe in roughly regular alternation This tradition suggests a western North America venue for the 1996 conference and a European venue for 1997 The executive committee has discussed the viability of a SIGCOMM conference in other parts of the world but the SIG s constituency at this point is overwhelmingly North American and European and we have as yet seen no convincing proposal for a conference elsewhere In recent years SIGCOMM has held its annual conference in Philadelphia 1990 Zurich 1991 Baltimore 1992 San Francisco 1993 and London 1994 The 1995 Conference was held in Cambridge Massachusetts on August 30 September 1 1995 Stuart Wecker one of ACM s first Fellows served as the general chair Karen Sollins and Dave Clark co chaired the program committee Tutorials were presented on August 29 This year s conference included two new features a one day invited workshop on Middleware which immediately preceeded the conference and an evening outrageous opinions session informally referred to as open mike night at the midpoint of the regular conference schedule Both events received enthusiastic reviews from participants Proposals for the next two SIGCOMM Conferences have been approved by the Executive Committee and await approval by ACM Assuming that the proposals satisfy ACM s requirements SIGCOMM 96 will be held at Stanford University on August 28 30 1996 with Craig Partridge BBN as general chairman and Deborah Estrin and Sally Floyd as program co chairs SIGCOMM 97 will be held at the Palais des Festivals in Cannes on September 17 19 1997 with Christophe Diot INRIA as general chairman and Scott Shenker and Christian Huitema as program co chairs Computers Freedom and Privacy In 1992 SIGCOMM undertook a 50 sponsorship of the Computers Freedom and Privacy conference which has developed into a long term commitment of support for an annual CFP conference Two other ACM SIGs SIGSAC and SIGCAS each provide a 25 sponsorship CFP has established itself as an important venue for the discussion of issues related to the interaction between computer communication and human values MIT will host CFP 96 Multimedia SIGCOMM in cooperation with the other SIGs that are represented on the ACM Multimedia Steering Committee continues to provide support to the annual ACM Multimedia Conference This year the Multimedia Conference will be held on November 5 9 at the Hyatt Regency Embarcadero in San Francisco The sponsoring SIGs for 1995 are SIGMM SIGCHI SIGGRAPH SIGBIT SIGBIO SIGCOMM SIGIR and SIGOIS in cooperation

    people who have played a significant role in the development of the field of data communication and networking Two regular features of CCR that have been long time favorites have been enhanced The bibliography of recent publications on computer communication has grown to include over 14 journals and magazines and the Internet RFCs The bibliography is now divided into approximately 40 subareas The regular status report on international networking standards has recently been expanded to include a semi annual report on the status of Internet Standards to complement the semi annual report on OSI and OSI related standards The IEEE ACM Transactions on Networking journal was launched in 1993 as a collaborative enterprise of SIGCOMM the IEEE Computer Society and the IEEE Communications Society The new Transactions has been phenomenally successful attracting approximately 10 000 individual subscribers during its first year of publication and demonstrating the viability of a large scale publishing collaboration between the IEEE and ACM SIGCOMM Award The SIGCOMM Award recognizes lifetime achievement in and contributions to the field of data communications It is awarded annually to a person whose work over the course of his or her career represents a significant contribution to the field and a substantial influence on the work and perceptions of others in the field The winner receives a 2 000 cash award and a plaque commemorating the award which are presented to the winner by the SIGCOMM chairman during the opening session of the SIGCOMM conference The winner is also invited to deliver a keynote address to the opening session The names of all of the SIGCOMM award winners are printed in each issue of the SIGCOMM Computer Communication Review The winner of the 1994 Award is Paul Green Past winners of the Award are Paul Baran David Clark Leonard Kleinrock Hubert Zimmerman Alexander Fraser and Robert Kahn Membership SIGCOMM s total membership has declined steadily year to year for the past four years The membership decline accelerated starting in FY93 and is a source of considerable concern to the SIGCOMM officers SIGCOMM has recently launched two membership initiatives one aimed at membership attrition existing SIGCOMM members who choose not to renew their membership and one aimed at attracting new members A letter from the SIGCOMM chairman will be sent to every lapsed member a month or so after non renewal pointing out the benefits of SIGCOMM membership and encouraging the non renewer to re enlist the letter will include a membership application form and a postage paid reply card with several post mortem survey questions for non renewers who decide to persist in their apostasy The astonishing success of the IEEE ACM Transactions on Networking suggests that there are thousands of people who are sufficiently interested in data communication and networking to subscribe to ToN but are not members of SIGCOMM A letter from the SIGCOMM chairman describing the SIG and its benefits and including a membership application and the April 1994 issue of CCR was mailed in June 1994
