CALL FOR ABSTRACTS  --  MAMA 2009  --  May 1st Deadline

  The Eleventh Workshop on MAthematical performance Modeling and Analysis
                               MAMA 2009

                             June 15, 2009
                        Seattle, Washington, USA

          Held in conjunction with SIGMETRICS/Performance 2009

                       Sponsored by ACM SIGMETRICS

The complexity of computer systems, networks and applications, as well as 
the advancements in computer technology, continue to grow at a rapid pace. 

Mathematical analysis, modeling and optimization are playing an important 
role in research studies to investigate fundamental issues and tradeoffs 
at the core of performance problems in the design and implementation of 
complex computer systems, networks and applications.

The Eleventh Workshop on MAthematical performance Modeling and Analysis
(MAMA 2009) seeks to bring together researchers working on the 
methodological and theoretical aspects of performance analysis, modeling 
and optimization.  It is intended to provide a forum at SIGMETRICS 
conferences for talks on early research in the more mathematical areas of 
computer performance analysis.  These talks tend to be based on very 
recent research results (including work in progress) or on new research 
results that will be otherwise submitted only to a journal (or recently 
have been submitted to a journal).  Thus, part of the goal is to 
complement and supplement the SIGMETRICS Conference program with such 
talks without removing any theoretical contributions from the main 
technical program.

This year's workshop will be held on June 15 (the day before the main
SIGMETRICS/Performance technical program).  In addition to the
presentation of extended abstracts, the workshop will include time for
informal technical discussions among the speakers and attendees.


      May    1, 2009:  Abstract Submission Deadline
      May   15, 2009:  Acceptance Notification
      May   22, 2009:  Final Abstracts for Workshop
      Aug   31, 2009:  Final Extended Abstracts for PER

MAMA 2009 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, using the same formatting files and
instructions as the main SIGMETRICS/Performance conference (refer to, before the
above deadline.  Submissions violating these formatting guidelines will
be returned without review.  Abstracts should be submitted electronically,
as an e-mail attachment, to [log in to unmask]  Postscript or PDF is
preferred, although other arrangements can be made by contacting Mark
Squillante ([log in to unmask]).

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. 
Revised 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.
