MAMA 2008 Workshop

Call for Abstracts

MAMA 2008 encourages the submission of abstracts describing early research on the general mathematical, methodological and theoretical aspects of performance analysis, modeling and optimization. Authors are asked to submit 2-3 page abstracts, following the same formatting instructions as the main SIGMETRICS conference (refer to, before the deadline below. (NOTE that this is different from the submission guidelines in previous years.) Submissions violating these formatting guidelines will be returned without review. Abstracts should be submitted electronically, as an e-mail attachment, to mss at watson dot ibm dot com. Postscript or PDF is preferred, although other arrangements can be made by contacting Mark Squillante (mss at watson dot ibm dot com).

Submissions will be reviewed by the MAMA program committee, from which a number of abstracts will be selected for inclusion in the workshop program. A version of the abstracts will be provided at the workshop. Extended versions of the abstracts will appear in a special issue of Performance Evaluation Review (PER), with a due date after the workshop making it possible for authors to incorporate the results of, or simply mention, any relevant discussions at the workshop. Note that there are no copyright issues with PER, and thus authors will have complete freedom to submit their work elsewhere.
