Sponsored by ACM SIGMETRICS and IFIP WG 7.3 on Information Processing System Modeling
An international forum for state-of-the-art work on performance issues in computer systems: theory, practice and case studies.
The proceedings of Sigmetrics/Performance '98 will be published as a special issue of ACM SIGMETRICS Performance Evaluation Review.
Information on Sigmetrics/Performance '98 will be maintained at http://www.cs.gmu.edu/conf/sigmetrics98.
We will accept submissions for
Papers, in English, should not exceed 20 double-spaced pages, including figures and tables. All submissions will be reviewed using a double-blind process; the identity of authors and referees will not be revealed to each other. In order to ensure blind reviewing, authors' names and affiliations should not appear in the paper; in addition, authors should refer to their own work in such a way that they are not readily recognized.
The default process for submitting papers (in Postscript) will be through the Internet (see instructions on the conference web page: http://www.cs.gmu.edu/conf/sigmetrics98). Permission to submit through other means (and instructions for doing so) must be obtained from a program chair by sending email to Sigmetrics98@ulb.ac.be
A hot topic session features a group of speakers presenting and discussing recent results in a specific area. Send proposals for hot topic sessions to a program chair, identifying the name and affiliation of an organizer for the session, the session title, the names and affiliations of three to five speakers, the titles of their presentations, and a 100 word abstract of each talk. Abstracts of the Hot Topic talks will be included in the conference proceedings.
As in previous years, a series of tutorials will be held immediately preceding the symposium. Send proposals of 1-2 pages for 90 minute and 3 hours tutorials to the tutorials chair. Please include proposed title, brief description of material, intended audience, assumed background of attendees, and the name(s), affiliation(s) and brief biography of speaker(s). The submission should indicate the level of the tutorial (introductory, intermediate, or advanced) and whether the material covered is applied or theoretical.
