The Sigmetrics 2007 Student Workshop organizing committee is encouraging the submission of abstracts describing on going thesis research in all areas of computer systems modeling and performance evaluation, (for a list of topics, please refer to the Sigmetrics 2007 call for papers). Student authors are asked to submit 1-2 page abstracts before the deadline below. Abstracts should be submitted electronically at the submission site in PDF format. Submissions will be reviewed by the program committee, from which a number of abstracts will be selected for inclusion in the workshop program. The workshop abstracts will appear in a special issue of Performance Evaluation Review (PER). All students who have their paper accepted will also be given free Sigmetrics membership for the year. A limited number of travel grants will be available.
The Sigmetrics Student Workshop is a forum for graduate students all over the world to have the opportunity to interact with their peers and publicize and get feedback on their work, exchange experiences, make contact, and learn what other students are doing in the modeling and performance evaluation area world wide. Students not only will be able to learn about the work from other students but also interact with well established researchers in the field who will participate in the workshop as mentors and organizers. The workshop will be a day-long program organized in such a way to promote lively discussions.
The Sigmetrics Student Workshop is being held in conjunction with SIGMETRICS '07, and registration will be handled through the SIGMETRICS conference website.
The deadline for early registration is May 11, 2007.
Note that the tutorial/workshop program is not included in the SIGMETRICS conference registration fee. It is also not included in the fees of any overlapping conferences. Also, when registering for you will be asked to indicate both that you will attend the SIGMETRICS workshop/tutorial program and also which particular workshops/tutorials you will attend (for planning purposes). It may appear that the individual workshops/tutorials are free, but this is not the case because you must indicate that you are attending SIGMETRICS tutorials/workshops (and you must do it on a per day basis), which is what the fee is based on.
