        The symposium provides an international forum for the
        presentation and discussion of communication network appli-
        cations and technologies, as well as recent advances and

        limited to the following: analysis and design of computer
        network architectures and algorithms, innovative results in
        local area networks, computer-supported collaborative work,
        network interconnection and mixed-media networks, high-speed
        networks, resource sharing in distributed systems, distri-
        buted operating systems and databases, protocol specifica-
        tion, verification, and analysis.

        their quality and relevance. Authors of selected papers
        will be expected to sign an ACM copyright release form. The
        Proceedings will be distributed at the symposium and pub-
        lished as a special issue of SIGCOMM Computer Communication
        Review. A few of the submitted papers will be selected for
        publication in the ACM Transactions on Computer Systems.
