SIGMETRICS 2001 / Performance 2001

(PDF and PostScript versions of the Call for Papers are also available.)
Call for Papers
The joint SIGMETRICS/Performance conference solicits papers on the development and application of state-of-the-art, broadly-applicable analytic, simulation, and measurement-based performance evaluation techniques. Of particular interest is work that furthers the state-of-the-art in performance evaluation methods, or those that creatively apply previously developed methods to understand or to gain important insights into key design trade-offs in complex computer/communication systems. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Performance-oriented design and evaluation studies of: communication networks, Internet servers, computer architectures, database systems, operating systems, distributed systems, multimedia systems, file and I/O systems, memory systems, real-time systems, and fault-tolerant systems.

  • Performance methodology techniques and algorithms for: analytic modeling, system measurement and monitoring, model verification and validation, workload characterization, simulation, statistical analysis, stochastic modeling including queues and Petri nets, experimental design, reliability analysis, performance optimization, and hybrid models.

Submission Guidelines
  • Papers: Papers should not exceed 20 double-spaced pages including figures and tables. Papers must be submitted electronically in printable postscript or pdf form. All submissions will be reviewed using a double-blind review process. The identity of authors and referees will not be revealed to each other. To ensure blind reviewing, authors' names and affiliations MUST NOT appear in the paper; bibliographic references must be made in such a way as to preserve author anonymity.

  • Hot Topic Sessions: Proposals are solicited for a hot topic session, in which a group of speakers will present and discuss their recent results in an area. Send proposals to the program chairs, identifying the organizer of the session, the session title, three to five speakers, the titles of their talks, and a short abstract of each talk.

  • Tutorials: A series of tutorials will immediately precede the conference. Send proposals of no more than 1-2 pages for 90 minute and 3 hours tutorials to the tutorials chair. Include the proposed title, brief description of material, intended audience, assumed background of attendees, and the name, affiliation, contact information (email & phone) and brief biography of speaker(s). Postscript or pdf is preferred.

Important Deadlines
October 26, 2000: Submission of papers, hot topic proposals, and tutorial proposals. Note: due to the large number of requests for extensions we have extended the deadline until November 2, 11:59 pm (US Eastern Time).
January 29, 2001: Notification of acceptance.
March 9, 2001: Camera ready copy due.
