The ACM SIGMETRICS Achievement Award is given annually to an
individual who has made long-lasting, influential contributions to the
analysis and evaluation of computer/communication system performance.
The contributions may be theoretical advances that have influenced the
techniques used to predict, control and optimize the performance of
computer/communication systems, practical procedures or software tools
that have been used widely to manage system performance, or innovative
applications of performance evaluation models that have impacted the
design of computer/communication systems.
The SIGMETRICS Achievement Award recipient is selected by an Awards
Committee comprised of five individuals appointed by the SIGMETRICS
EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE. In selecting the achievement award recipient, the
Awards Committee will place particular emphasis on seminal
contributions and a sustained record of high-impact in the field.
The award includes a plaque and a $2000 award, as well as expenses for
travel to the ACM SIGMETRICS annual conference, where the award is
presented. The recipient is also invited to give a technical
presentation at the conference.
The nomination rules disallow self-nominations, and require that the
nominator, but not the nominee, be a member of SIGMETRICS.
The nomination should include:
1. A two-page description of just those accomplishments which qualify
the nominee as a candidate for the award.
2. A curriculum vitae of the nominee.
3. Five endorsements, of at most 300 words each, from other scientists
in the field supporting the nomination. At least three of the five
endorsers must be SIGMETRICS members.
4. A concise statement of the nominee's achievements to be inscribed
on the award plaque.
The nomination materials must be e-mailed by APRIL 30, 2020 to the
