                          CALL FOR PAPERS
                   ACM SIGMETRICS/Performance 2012
           Joint International Conference on Measurement
                 and Modeling of Computer Systems


                      Imperial College London
              June 11-15, 2012, London, United Kingdom


* Abstract Registration: November 4, 2011 - 11:59pm GMT (hard, required)
* Paper Submission: November 11, 2011 - 11:59pm GMT (hard, no extensions)
* Notification of Decision: February 9, 2012


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. A day of tutorials and a day of workshops will precede and 
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 submissions relating to real world 
empirical studies or focusing on implementation and experimental issues.

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 networks
  *   Operating systems, file systems and databases
  *   Virtualization and 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
  *   Security systems and network attacks
  *   Large-scale operational systems
  *   Software systems and enterprise applications
  *   Emerging technologies

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
  *   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


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.

Workshop proposals are solicited for the day following the main 
conference, June 15, 2012. Send 1-2 page proposals to the General Chair 
(sigmeperf12-general-chair at imperial.ac.uk). 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 (sigmeperf12-tutorial-chair at imperial.ac.uk). Include the 
proposed title, brief description of material, intended audience, 
assumed background of attendees, and the name, affiliation, contact 
information (email and phone) and brief biography of the speaker(s).
