SIGMETRICS/Performance 2009:
Call for Demonstrations

June 17, 2009
Seattle, WA, USA
Program now available: [html]

Do you have a cool demo of your ideas and prototypes? Then come and exhibit it at SIGMETRICS/Performance 2009! You will be able to communicate your ideas in a much more interesting, interactive forum. We solicit proposals for demonstrations of innovative research related to Performance Evaluation of Computer Systems. Areas 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.

Demo Competition

The demonstrations will be evaluated by a panel of judges. An award will be given to the best demonstration, and the best student-led demonstration will receive a prize. The evaluation will be based on how innovative the research is, how well the demonstration illustrates the ideas, and how well it captures and holds the viewer's attention.

Submission Guidelines

Proposals should include a short abstract and a description of the demonstration and of the research contributions of the work. The demonstration need not be complete at the time of submission, as long as the authors are confident that they can complete it in time for the conference. Submissions should preferably be in PDF, using the standard ACM format, and should not exceed 2 pages. They may (and preferably should) contain a URL where additional information can be found.  Note that this will not require any release of copyright, and authors will be free to publish their work elsewhere. 

Please submit your proposal as an email attachment to Jun (Jim) Xu <jx (at)> with the subject line "SIGMETRICS/Performance 2009 Demo Proposal."
