International Conference on Measurement and Modeling of Computer Systems
June 2-6, 2008, Annapolis, Maryland, USA

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 work that creatively apply previously 
developed methods to understand or to gain important insights into key 
design trade-offs in computer or network systems.  Topics of interest 
include, but are not limited to:

* Performance-oriented design and evaluation studies of: computer 
networks, Internet servers, computer architectures, database systems, 
operating systems, distributed systems, multimedia systems, file and 
storage systems, memory systems, language and runtime systems, real-time 
systems, sensor networks, mobile devices and wireless networks, 
security, 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.

In addition to its traditional focus, we particularly encourage 
submissions focusing on implementation and experimental issues.


November  9, 2007:  Abstract registration
November 16, 2007:  Submission of papers, hot topic proposals, workshops 
and tutorial proposals
February  5, 2008:  Notification of acceptance


Papers should not exceed 12 pages double column including figures and 
tables in standard ACM format. Papers must be submitted electronically 
in printable pdf form; for detailed submission instructions, refer to 
the conference web site.  No changes to margins, spacing, or font sizes 
are allowed from those specified by the style file.  Papers violating 
the formatting guidelines will be returned without review.

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.  A limited number of submitted 
papers will be accepted for a poster session. Papers of particular merit 
will be forwarded to a journal for fast-tracking.

One or more workshops will immediately precede the main conference. Send 
1-2 page proposals 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 pdf, or plain text.

This year a new HotMetrics workshop is planned as a forum for presenting 
bold visionary papers, position papers and recent results in the field.

A series of tutorials will immediately precede the main 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 pdf, or plain text.
