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.

Because of changes in ACM SIGMETRICS 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, the MAMA 2020 Workshop will be held online on Monday, June 8, 2020.

Although we will not be able to enjoy the conventional MAMA workshop experience this year due to COVID-19, we are looking forward to a new and exciting online workshop format. In addition to the presentation of short papers, the workshop will include time for informal technical discussions among the speakers and attendees.


1. Attendance for the workshop will be through webex via the link

2. Authors and Attendees should register for SIGMETRICS 2020 (at no cost, fill out Google form at ACM SIGMETRICS 2020), at which point you will see a doc with links to slack. From there you can join slack and head to the workshop_mama channel.

3. Slack will be used to facilitate questions and technical exchanges during and after the presentations at the workshop. You are strongly encouraged to join slack via conference registration from ACM SIGMETRICS 2020
