Call for papers

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 Workshop on MAthematical performance Modeling and Analysis (MAMA) 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 conferences for talks on early research in the more mathematical areas of computer performance analysis. These talks tend to 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 Conference program with such talks without removing any theoretical contributions from the main technical program.

********************************************************************************************* *********************************************************************************************

This year's MAMA workshop will be held online on Monday, June 14 (the day before the main SIGMETRICS technical program).

Although we will not be able to enjoy the conventional MAMA workshop experience this year, we are looking forward to an exciting online workshop format. In addition to the presentation of short papers, the workshop will include time (breaks) for informal technical discussions among the speakers and attendees.


1. The MAMA Workshop will be held on the Gather platform (, with talks delivered through Zoom Webinar ( DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS CAN BE FOUND AT

2. Authors and Attendees should join early to provide extra time to make it through Gather and into the right Zoom room (Summer Palace Room).

3. Authors and Attendees must register for SIGMETRICS 2021 Workshops.
