MAMA 2020
The Twenty Second Workshop on MAthematical performance Modeling and 
Analysis
Held in conjunction with ACM SIGMETRICS 2020
June 8th, 2020  --  Boston, MA, USA  ****  VIRTUAL EVENT  ****

The MAMA 2020 workshop will be held as a *** live virtual event *** 
(likely using webex) in the typical style of the MAMA workshop.  The live 
program will be scheduled to accommodate all/most time zones as best as 
possible.  A recording of the workshop will be available during the 
SIGMETRICS Conference.

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 Twenty Second Workshop on MAthematical performance Modeling and 
Analysis (MAMA 2020) 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 8 *** as a live virtual event 
***.  In addition to the presentation of short papers, the workshop will 
include time for informal technical discussions among the speakers and 
attendees.


Important Dates
Monday, May 18, 2020: Paper Submission (Hard deadline) 
Friday, May 29, 2020: Author Notification 
Friday, June 5, 2020: Final Versions Due
Monday, June 8, 2020: Workshop
Monday, July 20, 2020: Final Short Papers for PER Due


MAMA 2020 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 short papers, using the standard PER format, before 
the above deadline. Submissions violating these formatting guidelines will 
be discarded without review. Short papers should be submitted 
electronically, as an e-mail attachment, to mss((at))us.ibm.com. PDF is 
strongly preferred, although other arrangements can be made by contacting 
Mark Squillante at mss((at))us.ibm.com. 

Submissions will be reviewed by the MAMA program committee, from which a 
number of short papers will be selected for inclusion in the workshop 
program. A version of the accepted short papers will be available at the 
workshop. Revised versions of these short 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 short 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 (as explicitly 
stated when using the standard PER format) with complete freedom to submit 
their work elsewhere. 

Please see the MAMA 2020 web pages at http://www.sigmetrics.org/mama/ for 
additional information about the workshop...  For more information, please 
contact Mark Squillante (mss((at))us.ibm.com).
