The 2021 ACM SIGMETRICS Achievement Award will be presented at the ACM SIGMETRICS 2021 conference, to be held online on June 14-18, 2021.

This Call for Nominations is available at

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. Members of the selection committee are not eligible to serve as nominator or endorser.

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 2, 2021 to the committee chair John N. Tsitsiklis at: [log in to unmask] with SIGMETRICS in the subject line.

Past nominations that did not result in an award can be resubmitted.
