2024 ACM SIGMETRICS / IFIP Performance Conference

Date: June 10-14, 2024
Venue: Venice, Italy


We solicit papers on the development and application of state-of-the-art, broadly applicable analytic, simulation and measurement-based performance evaluation techniques. The conference provides a high-quality forum for presenting results and discussing ideas that further our knowledge and understanding of the measurement, modeling, analysis, and design of computing systems and networks. Of particular interest is work that presents new performance evaluation methods, or that creatively applies previously developed methods to make predictions about, or gain insights into, key design trade-offs in a variety of computing, networked, and cyber-physical systems, ranging from mobile devices and Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications to large-scale cloud computing systems and the smart grid.

The conference presents papers that have been accepted to appear in the Proceedings of the ACM on Measurement and Analysis of Computing Systems (POMACS). There are multiple deadlines to submit your work in time for a presentation at the conference (see below). A panel of reviewers will consider all accepted and eligible papers for the Best Paper Award and the Stephen S. Lavenberg and Kenneth C. Sevcik Outstanding Student Paper Award. Additionally, a selection of the accepted papers, as identified by a panel of reviewers, may be nominated for publication as Research Highlights in the Communications of the ACM (CACM).


We solicit papers describing original and previously unpublished research. Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following.

Quantitative measurement, design and evaluation studies of:
– Computer and communication networks, protocols and algorithms
– Wireless, mobile, ad-hoc and sensor networks, quantum networks, IoT applications, and blockchain networks
– Computer architectures, hardware accelerators, multi-core processors, memory systems and storage networks
– High Performance Computing
– Operating systems, file systems and databases
– Virtualization, data centers, distributed and cloud computing, fog and edge computing
– Mobile and personal computing systems
– Energy-efficient computing systems
– Real-time and fault-tolerant systems
– Security and privacy of computing and networked systems
– Software systems and services, and enterprise applications
– Social networks, metaverse, multimedia systems, Web services
– Cyber-physical systems, including the smart grid

Methodologies, formalisms, metrics, solution techniques and algorithms for:

– Analytical modeling techniques and model validation
– Workload characterization and benchmarking
– Performance, scalability, power and reliability analysis
– Sustainability analysis and power management
– System measurement, performance monitoring and forecasting
– Anomaly detection, problem diagnosis and troubleshooting
– Capacity planning, resource allocation, run time management and scheduling
– Experimental design, statistical analysis, simulation
– Game theory, network economics, and platform design
– Machine learning, AI, Big data, data mining, graph analysis, optimization
– Quantum computing

Important Dates

The Winter submission dates:

– Registration of abstract: January 24, 2024
– Paper submission: January 31, 2024
– Author notification: March 26, 2024

Submission website: sigperf24winter.hotcrp.com

Papers may be submitted to any deadline and, upon acceptance, papers will be scheduled for publication in the Proceedings of the ACM on Measurement and Analysis of Computing Systems (POMACS, http://pomacs.acm.org) and presentation at the ACM SIGMETRICS / IFIP Performance 2024 conference. The journal publication of accepted papers will appear in the issue of POMACS immediately following acceptance; i.e., papers that are accepted for the Summer and Fall deadlines will appear in POMACS before the conference.
