Dear ICNrs,

The papers for this years ACM ICN conference, that will be held in Hong Kong September 24-26 2019, http://conferences.sigcomm.org/acm-icn/2019/, are currently under review. While you are waiting for your review responses we would like you consider the possibility of hosting the 2020 ACM ICN conference.

Please find our request for site proposals below. 

	The ACM ICN conference Steering Committee / Börje

ACM SIGCOMM Conference on Information-Centric Networking
Call for Site Proposals for 2020

The Steering Committee of the ACM Information-Centric Networking is inviting interested groups and individuals to submit proposals for hosting the 2020 ACM ICN conference. After its second tour around the globe, with the last three events in Berlin, Boston and Hong Kong we are especially interested in proposals for hosting ACM ICN 2020 in Europe (without excluding proposals from other parts of the world).

Site proposals should include information regarding the following three items:

A: City
The city should be located near a major international airport, within 1-2 hours of regular train service and/or 45 minutes of cab/shuttle service. A major international airport should have at least two airlines with regular international service to the 3 major continents of ICN attendees: Asia, Europe, North America.

The proposed venue should have one conference meeting room that can accommodate approximately 150 attendees (our current estimate), together with a few other rooms for potential tutorials and/or workshops. The conference room should support a single center screen or two side-by-side screens with unobstructed views. The venues should include, or allow for rental of, equipment for Internet connectivity for 150 attendees in the main conference hall and for multiple parallel demos.

The city should have hotels supporting 150-200 people (attendees and their guests) within easy access (less than 15 minutes time, preferably at most 1 metro/bus/tram) to the venue.

The city should have potential venues for a reception and banquet dinner. A sample list of possible venues with a 1-line description addressing logistics (time to get there, need for transportation) would be useful.

B. Conference General Chair & Organization Committee
The proposal should include 
the name and affiliation of a widely-recognized member of the networking community with ties to the proposed site city who is willing to serve as the General Chair, or up to 2 co-chairs with at least one of them local or with ties to the site.
The names and affiliations of a few other candidates which the General Chair can enlist to serve on the organization committee, notably a local person as local arrangements chair, a publicity chair, and a treasurer, etc.
Optionally but desirably, the proposal may include an estimate cost for the conference venue and the hotel price range.

NOTE: This site proposal should not suggest program committee chairs; which will be appointed separately by the ACM ICN Steering Committee.

C. Dates
The conference is typically held between September 15 and October 15. Please indicate which dates have major local conflicts, e.g., major local events, school openings, etc. that would interfere with either the proposed site or the proposed General Chair's participation. ICN is typically held on two days plus one extra day for tutorials and/or community events. If possible, the conference should take place on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday.
