Sigmetrics 2009 invites students to submit extended abstracts describing work-in-progress thesis research to the student thesis panel. The thesis panel provides a live forum for students to promote and get feedback on their work, exchange research experiences, and interact with established researchers. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Performance-oriented design and evaluation studies of: computer networks, mobile devices and wireless networks, distributed and parallel systems, file and storage systems, power management, database systems, computer architectures, operating systems, Web services, fault-tolerant systems, and language and runtime systems.
  • Performance methodology techniques and algorithms for: analytic modeling, system measurement and monitoring, model verification and validation, simulation, statistical analysis, experimental design, and reliability analysis.

Both analytical and empirical studies, as well as work focusing on implementation and experimental issues are encouraged to be submitted to the student thesis panel.

Student Thesis Panel

Submissions will be reviewed by a panel committee, and a number of abstracts will be selected for presentation at the thesis panel. Each thesis panel is chaired by a well established researcher in the field and student authors of accepted submissions will speak as panelists.

An Award (and a prize) will be given to the best student panelist.

Submission Guidelines

Extended abstracts should not exceed 2 pages double column including figures and tables in standard ACM format. All submissions should be in PDF format.
