The 12th joint ACM SIGMETRICS / Performance conference solicits papers on the development and application of state-of-the-art, broadly applicable analytic, simulation and measurement-based performance evaluation techniques. Of particular interest is work that presents new performance evaluation methods or that creatively applies previously developed methods to make predictions about, or gain insights into key design trade-offs in, computer and networked systems. The main conference will last three days, 12-14 June 2012, and have two keynote speakers, to be announced shortly. A day of tutorials will precede and a day of workshops will follow the main conference. The notion of performance is broadly construed - including considerations of speed and scalability as well as reliability, availability, sustainability and manageability of systems. We encourage both theoretical contributions and also submissions relating to real world empirical studies or focusing on implementation and experimental issues.
Papers should not exceed 12 double column pages, including figures and tables in standard ACM format. In addition, a 2-page appendix is permitted, where the appendix does not count towards the original 12 pages. All submissions will be reviewed using a double-blind review process. Additional submission details will be published shortly on the conference Web site. Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings published on ACM Performance Evaluation Review.
Workshop proposals are solicited for the day following the main conference, June 15, 2012. Send 1-2 page proposals to the General Chair. Please include the proposed title, brief description of topics, intended audience, and membership of the workshop organizing committee.
Tutorial submissions will be considered for presentation the day
immediately preceding the main conference, June 11, 2012. Send
proposals of no more than 1-2 pages for 90-minute or 3-hour tutorials
to the Tutorial Chair.
Include the proposed title, brief description of material, intended
audience, assumed background of attendees, and the name, affiliation,
