A message to authors of accepted papers
Our warmest congratulations on the acceptance of your paper. We look forward to meeting you at INFOCOM 2015 in Hong Kong, April 27-30, 2015.
INFOCOM 2015 received 1,640 papers, of which 316 papers were accepted after a thorough review process, with an acceptance ratio of 19%.
All submitted papers were reviewed in a double-blind fashion by a Technical Program Committee with over 400 members, and overseen by 46 Area Chairs. Over 5,000 reviews were written, with each paper receiving at least 3, and as many as 6, reviews. One third of the reviews were manually assigned by the Area Chairs, and the remainder were assigned by a new automated review assignment system that optimizes the match between papers and reviewers across the board. Based on extensive online discussions, 126 papers were accepted before the TPC meeting, whereas 365 papers were discussed in-person at the TPC meeting, held in Philadelphia, PA, on November 8th, 2014.
A list of all accepted papers will soon be made available at the Program at a Glance section of the INFOCOM 2015 website.
