|Milan, Italy, November 2-6, 2020|
38th International Symposium on Computer Performance, Modeling, Measurements and Evaluation 2020
The 38th International Symposium on Computer Performance, Modeling, Measurements and Evaluation will be held in Milan, Italy from 2nd November to 6th November 2020.
The IFIP WG 7.3 Performance conference aims to bring together researchers interested in understanding and improving the performance of computing and communication systems by means of state-of-the-art quantitative models and solution techniques. The Performance conference has a long-standing tradition and has followed an 18-month cycle for many years. Recently, the interval has been changed to one year.
We are continuously monitoring the COVID-19 situation from local authorities and the World Health Organization. The conference is seven-month away, and local organizers hope that COVID-19 emergency will pass over and the conference will be held in November, as planned. However, if necessary, alternative solutions, such as postponement, remote presentations, etc will be looked into and identified.
Topics of interest include the following
Performance-oriented methodologies including:
- Capacity planning, resource allocation, routing, scheduling and Quality of Service
- Energy-efficient computing and networking
- Network architectures, protocols and congestion control
- Storage systems and datacenters
- Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
- Blockchains and crypto-currency
- Data centers, content delivery, cloud computing and virtualization
- Internet and web services
- Wireless, ad-hoc and cellular networks
- Paper Submission Deadline May 17, 2020
- Notification to authors July 19, 2020
- Regular papers: 12 pages
- Short papers: 6 pages
Regular papers should not exceed 12 pages double-column and single-spaced including figures, tables and references in standard ACM format. Short papers are limited to 6 pages. In addition (both for regular and short paper submissions), a 2-page appendix is permitted, which is not included in the page-count. Papers must be submitted electronically in printable pdf form. Templates for the standard ACM format can be found at https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template. Both the 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.
Authors of rejected Sigmetrics 2020 papers are invited to submit a revised version of their paper, which would then be reviewed again as new by at least one of its Sigmetrics reviewers to aid consistency. The authors are allowed to include a response to the Sigmetrics reviews in a clearly-marked appendix that will not count against the page limit.
Papers can be submitted through easychair
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 double-blind reviewing, authors names and affiliations should not appear in the paper and bibliographic references should be made in such a way as to preserve author anonymity.
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 rejected immediately from all conferences/journals involved.
Accepted short papers (limited to 6 pages ) and abstracts of accepted regular papers will be published in a special issue of the ACM Performance Evaluation Review (PER). The style file can be found here.
Regular papers will be published in a special issue of the Elsevier journal Performance Evaluation (PEVA). Appropriate Latex templates and instructions can be found here
Alternatively, authors may opt-out in favor of submission to other special issues in journals related to Performance Evaluation and Operations Research.
Eligible papers are:
- long papers that opt-out of publication in Performance Evaluation (PEVA).
Authors need to make sure that their work falls within the scope of the respective journal. All papers will be reviewed according to the standards of the journal.
Special Issues will appear in:
- ACM Transactions on Modeling and Performance Evaluation of Computing Systems (TOMPECS).The editors will invite the authors of a few papers (short or long) to submit a full-length manuscript.Prepare your manuscript using the same manuscript preparation guidelines as the ones for regular TOMPECS submissions.
- Queueing Systems: Theory and Applications (QUESTA)All conference papers (short and long papers that opt-out of PEVA) may submit to the SI.The conference version of the paper published in PER should be no more than 6 pages. Accepted full papers that opt-out of PEVA will have to be shortened by the authors if they wish to have their paper submitted to Queueing Systems.Prepare your manuscript using the same manuscript preparation guidelines as the ones for regular QUESTA submissions.
- Stochastic SystemsThe conference version of the paper published in PER should be no more than 6 pages. Accepted full papers that opt-out of PEVA will have to be shortened by the authors if they wish to have their paper submitted to Stochastic Systems.Prepare your manuscript using the same manuscript preparation guidelines as the ones for regular stochastic systems submissions.
