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
- 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.
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
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
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.
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.
