The year 2011 is an election year for ACM SIGMETRICS,
with voting to take place in March, and new officers
to take their seats in July 2011 for a two-year term.
Our Nominations Committee, chaired by Ed Coffman,
has constructed the following full slate of strong
candidates for ACM SIGMETRICS officers:
Chair (choose one)
John C.S. Lui
Vice Chair (choose one)
Cathy Honghui Xia
Secretary/Treasurer (choose one)
John R. Douceur
Board of Directors (choose four)
Election statements and biographies from each candidate
will be available in the near future as part of the ACM
election process. Additional candidates can still be added
via petition, as indicated in the ACM email appended below.
Please note that you need to be a SIGMETRICS member
in order to vote in March. If your membership has
inadvertently lapsed, then now would be a good time to renew,
before ACM removes you from this mailing list.
In peripherally-related news, we are about to launch the
2011 award selection process for SIGMETRICS awards,
including Achievement Award, Rising Star Researcher Award,
and Test of Time Award. Expect to see emails regarding
these awards in the next week or two.
(Chair, ACM SIGMETRICS)
