IMC is a three-day event focusing on Internet measurement and analysis. The conference is sponsored jointly by ACM SIGCOMM and ACM SIGMETRICS. IMC 2014 is the 14th in a series of highly successful Internet Measurement Workshops and Conferences.

IMC is a highly selective venue for the presentation of measurement-based research in data communications. The focus of IMC 2014 will be on papers that either (1) improve the practice of measurement or (2) illuminate some facet of an operational network.

IMC 2014 will bestow two awards. One award will recognize the outstanding paper at the conference, and all accepted papers are eligible for it. The other award will recognize a paper that contributes a novel dataset to the community.
