MAMA 2017
The Ninteenth Workshop on MAthematical performance Modeling and Analysis
Held in conjunction with ACM SIGMETRICS 2017
June 5th, 2017  --  Urbana-Champaign, Illinois, USA


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 Ninteenth Workshop on MAthematical performance Modeling and Analysis 
(MAMA 2017) seeks to bring together researchers working on the 
mathematical, 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 5.  In addition to the 
presentation of short papers, the workshop will include time for informal 
technical discussions among the speakers and attendees.

Important Dates
Friday, April 28, 2017: Paper Submission (Hard deadline) 
Friday, May 12, 2017: Author Notification 
NOTE: Authors will need to register upon being notified of acceptance.
Monday, May 15, 2017: Early Registration Deadline
Monday, May 22, 2017: Final Versions Due
Monday, June 5, 2017: Workshop
Monday, August 28, 2017: Final Short Papers for PER Due

MAMA 2017 encourages the submission of short papers describing early 
research on the general mathematical, methodological and theoretical 
aspects of performance analysis, modeling and optimization. Authors are 
asked to submit 3-page papers, using the standard PER format (
http://www.sigmetrics.org/sig-alternate-per.cls), before the above 
deadline. Submissions violating these formatting guidelines will be 
returned without review. Papers should be submitted electronically, as an 
e-mail attachment, to mss((at))us.ibm.com. Postscript or PDF is preferred, 
although other arrangements can be made by contacting Mark Squillante 

Submissions will be reviewed by the MAMA program committee, from which a 
number of papers will be selected for inclusion in the workshop program. A 
version of the accepted papers will be available at the workshop. Revised 
versions of these papers will be published 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. Authors of accepted 
papers grant ACM permission to publish them in print and digital formats. 
Note that there are no copyright issues with PER, and thus authors retain 
the copyright of their work with complete freedom to submit their work
