ACM SIGMETRICS 2007
the International Conference on Measurement and Modeling of Computer Systems
June 12-16, 2007
San Diego, CA
Sponsored by ACM SIGMETRICS
Held in conjunction with FCRC '07
CALL FOR PAPERS [ ps ] [ pdf ] [ poster ]
The ACM SIGMETRICS 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 or 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, experimental design, reliability analysis, performance optimization, and hybrid models.

Papers: Submitted papers should use the standard ACM format. Templates for the standard ACM format can be found at this link. Paper length is limited to 12 pages, double-column, including all figures, tables, and references. In addition, a 2-page appendix is permitted, where the appendix does not count towards the original 12 pages. The appendix is intended for supplementary material only (e.g., detailed proofs or derivations), and is *not* required reading for the reviewers. Any paper exceeding these limits is subject to automatic rejection.
Papers must be submitted electronically in printable pdf form; detailed submission instructions can be found here.
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 should not appear in the paper; bibliographic references should be made in such a way as to preserve author anonymity.
Warning: It is ACM policy not to allow double submissions, where the same paper is submitted to more than one conference/journal concurrently. Any double submissions detected will be immediately rejected from all conferences/journals involved.
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, and the title and short abstract of each talk.
Workshops: One or more workshops will immediately precede the conference. Send proposals of no more than 1-2 pages to the general chair. Include the proposed title, brief description of topics, intended audience, and membership of workshop organizing committee. Proposals must be submitted electronically in printable postscript, pdf, or plain text.
Tutorials: A series of tutorials will immediately precede the conference. Send proposals of no more than 1-2 pages for 90 minute or 3 hours tutorials to the tutorial 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). Proposals must be submitted electronically in printable postscript, pdf, or plain text.
