The Thirteenth Workshop on MAthematical Performance
Modeling and Analysis
Held in conjunction with SIGMETRICS 2011
Part of Federated Computing Research Conference (FCRC) 2011
June 8th, 2011 - San Jose, California, USA
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 Thirteenth Workshop on MAthematical performance Modeling and Analysis (MAMA 2011) 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 workshop will be held on June 8 (the day before the main SIGMETRICS technical program). In addition to the presentation of extended abstracts, the workshop will include time for informal technical discussions among the speakers and attendees.
For more information about the workshop, please contact Mark Squillante at mss((at))watson.ibm.com.
MAMA 2011 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 ACM
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
mss((at))watson.ibm.com. Postscript or PDF is preferred, although other
arrangements can be made by contacting Mark Squillante (email above).
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.
