Submission Guidelines

MAMA encourages the submission of abstracts describing early research on the general mathematical, methodological and theoretical aspects of performance analysis, modeling and optimization. Authors are asked to submit 2-3 page abstracts, using the standard PER format, before the deadline (listed below). Submissions violating these formatting guidelines will be returned without review. Abstracts should be submitted electronically, as an e-mail attachment, to Postscript or PDF is preferred, although other arrangements can be made by contacting Mark Squillante (

Submissions will be reviewed by the MAMA program committee, from which a number of abstracts will be selected for inclusion in the workshop program. A version of the accepted abstracts will be provided at the workshop. Revised versions of these abstracts will be published in a special issue of Performance Evaluation Review (PER), with a due date after the workshop making it possible for authors to incorporate the results of, or simply mention, any relevant discussions at the workshop. Authors of accepted abstracts grant ACM permission to publish them in print and digital formats. Note that there are no copyright issues with PER, and thus authors retain the copyright of their work with complete freedom to submit their work elsewhere.
