The ACM SIGMETRICS Rising Star Research Award is given annually to recognize a rising star in our community who demonstrates outstanding potential for research in the field of computer and communication performance. The selection is based on the impact of the candidate's work in the field in creating promising new ideas, paradigms, and tools related to the performance analysis of computer and communication systems, which may be analytical or empirical in nature.
