Abstract Registration: November 17, 2014 (11:59pm EST)
Paper Submission: November 24, 2014 (11:59pm EST)
Notification: February 17, 2015
Conference: June 15-19, 2015

ACM SIGMETRICS 2015 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 be held from
June 16-18, 2015. There will be workshops and tutorials on June 15,
2015. There will also be workshops on June 19, 2015. Submission details
will be published shortly on this Web site. All accepted regular papers
will include oral (short or long time slot, single track)
presentations. We foresee a continuation in the recent organic growth
of the size of ACM SIGMETRICS, while still keeping it a single track
venue. All regular papers will be allocated 12 pages in the conference
proceedings. In addition, poster papers will be accepted (2 pages in
proceedings, no oral presentation).

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

Quantitative design and evaluation studies of:

– Computer and communication networks, protocols and algorithms
– Wireless, mobile, ad-hoc and sensor networks
– Computer architectures, multi-core processors, memory systems and
storage systems/networks
– Operating systems, file systems and databases
– Virtualization, data centers, distributed and cloud computing
– Social networks, multimedia systems, service-oriented architectures
and Web services
– Energy-efficient computing systems
– Real-time and fault-tolerant systems
– Mobile and personal computing systems
– Large-scale operational systems
– Software systems and enterprise applications
– Smart power grids
– Emerging technologies
– Data processing

Methodologies, formalisms, solution techniques and algorithms for:

– Performance, scalability, power and reliability analysis
– Sustainability analysis and power management
– Capacity planning, resource allocation, run time management and
– Anomaly detection, system measurement, monitoring and forecasting
– Analytical modeling techniques and model validation
– System measurement, monitoring and forecasting
– Workload characterization and benchmarking
– Quality of service, total cost of ownership and pricing
– Experimental design, statistical analysis, simulation
– Performance-oriented applications of game theory, economics and
control theory
– Big data, machine learning and signal processing

The submission website will be online in early November. Papers
should not exceed 12 pages double column including figures, tables,
and references in standard ACM format. In addition, a 2-page appendix
is permitted, where the appendix does not count towards the original
12 pages. Papers must be submitted electronically in printable pdf
form. Templates for the standard ACM format can be found at this link.


Both strict and alternate styles are acceptable for submission. No
changes to margins, spacing, or font sizes are allowed from those
specified by the style files. Papers violating the formatting
guidelines will be returned without review.

All submissions will be reviewed using a double-blind review process.
The identity of authors and referees will not be revealed to each
other. To ensure blind reviewing, author names and affiliations should
not appear in the paper; bibliographic references should be made in
such a way as to preserve author anonymity. Accepted papers will appear
in the conference proceedings published in the ACM Performance
Evaluation Review.

Warning: It is ACM policy not to allow double submissions, where the
same paper is submitted to more than one conference/journal
concurrently. Any double submissions detected will be immediately
rejected from all conferences/journals involved.
