The complexity of computer systems, networks and applications, as well as
the advancements in computer technology, continue to grow at a rapid pace.
Mathematical analysis, modeling and optimization are playing an important role
in research studies to investigate fundamental issues and tradeoffs at the
core of performance problems in the design and implementation of complex
computer systems, networks and applications.
The Third Workshop on MAthematical performance Modeling and Analysis
seeks to bring together researchers working on the mathematical, methodological
and theoretical aspects of performance analysis, modeling and optimization.
It is intended to provide a forum at SIGMETRICS / Performance conferences for
talks on early research in the more mathematical areas of computer performance
analysis. These talks will be based on very recent research results (including
work in progress) or on new research results that will be otherwise submitted
only to a journal (or recently have been submitted to a journal). Thus, part of
the goal is to complement and supplement the SIGMETRICS / Performance Conference
program with such talks without removing any theoretical contributions from the
This year's workshop will be held the afternoon of June 20 (shortly after the
main SIGMETRICS / Performance program) and all day June 21 in Room G115
of the Maxwell Dworking Building on the Harvard Campus. In addition to the
presentation of extended abstracts, the workshop will include time for informal
technical discussions among the speakers and attendees.
