                      Call for Papers 
                ****** ACM SIGMETRICS 2003 ******

                 International Conference on 
        Measurement and Modeling of Computer Systems

                     June 10-14, 2003 
                 San Diego, California

   (held in conjunction with FCRC'03 (http://www.acm.org/fcrc)

The SIGMETRICS conference solicits papers on the development and
application of state-of-the-art, broadly applicable analytic,
simulation, and measurement-based performance evaluation techniques.
We are interested in techniques whose aim is to evaluate a system's
dependability, security, correctness, or power consumption as well as
more traditional performance metrics.  Of particular interest is work
that furthers the state of the art in performance evaluation methods,
or that creatively applies previously developed methods to gain
important insights into key design trade-offs in complex computer and
communication systems.  

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- Performance-oriented design and evaluation studies of communication
  networks, Internet servers, computer architectures, database
  systems, operating systems, distributed systems, multimedia systems,
  mobile and handheld systems, file and I/O systems, memory systems,
  real-time systems, and dependable systems, including case studies
  and performance-evaluation tools.

- Performance methodology techniques, algorithms, and tools for
  analytic modeling, system measurement and monitoring, model
  verification and validation, workload characterization, simulation,
  statistical analysis, stochastic modeling including queues,
  stochastic Petri nets, stochastic process algebras, experimental
  design, reliability and availability analysis, power analysis,
  performance optimizations, and hybrid models.

Submission Guidelines

- Papers: On October 25, 2002, authors must submit the title,
  abstract, and author list (with affiliations) for their intended
  submission.  Submissions of the full papers are due on November 1,
  2002 and should not exceed 20 double-spaced pages, including figures
  and tables.  Papers must be submitted electronically in printable
  postscript or PDF form.  All submissions will be reviewed using a
  double-blind review process.  The identity of the authors and
  referees will not be revealed to each other.  To ensure blind
  reviewing, authors' names and affiliations MUST NOT appear in the
  paper; bibliographic references must be made in such as way as to
  preserve author anonymity.  See the web site for more information on

- This year a Best Student Paper award will be presented at
  Sigmetrics. A paper is eligible for the award if a student or group
  of students was the primary contributor to the paper. If your paper
  is eligible, you should indicate that by marking "Student" rather
  than "Regular" in the checkbox on the paper submission web page.

- Hot Topic Sessions: Proposals are solicited for a hot topic session,
  in which a group of speakers will present and discuss their recent
  results in an area.  Send proposals to the program chairs,
  identifying the organizer of the session, the session title, three
  to five speakers, the titles of their talks, and a short abstract of
  each talk.

- Tutorials: A series of tutorials will immediately precede the main
  conference.  Send proposals of no more than 1 or 2 pages (for
  90-minute or 3-hour tutorials) to the tutorials chair.  Include the
  proposed title, brief description of material, intended audience,
  assumed background of attendees, and the name, affiliation, contact
  information (e-mail and phone), and brief biography of speaker(s).
  Postscript or PDF is preferred.
