ACM SIGCOMM Artefact Evaluation Committee
Our team organized the Reproducibility’17@SIGCOMM workshop (proposed and co-chaired by Damien Saucez). Based on the results of the workshop, we put in place the ACM SIGCOMM Artefact Evaluation Committee (AEC). The role of the AEC is to assess the reproducibility level of papers accepted to any ACM SIGCOMM sponsored conferences and journals during the year 2018. The reproducibility quality is awarded by ACM reproducibility badges (http://www.acm.org/publications/policies/artifact-review-badging). Authors volunteered to be evaluated and we received 33 demands. In parallel to this effort, the organisers of the ACM CoNEXT'18 conference asked us to assess the reproducibility level of CoNEXT papers in 2018 as part of the publication process. We accepted and out of the 32 CoNEXT papers, 14 volunteered to be evaluated and 12 received an award. The result is that ACM CoNEXT'18 is the first ever ACM SIGCOMM sponsored conference to award reproducibility. Based on that the main ACM SIGCOMM conference has decided to make a trial in 2019 and integrate reproducibility evaluation as part of the publication process for 2019.
