					                                    CALL FOR PAPERS
HotMetrics aims to bring together researchers in the SIGMETRICS and related communities to discuss
emerging challenges in performance evaluation. The goal is to promote community-wide discussion
identifying "important" and "hard" problems, to foster research collaborations within the field, and to
engage the community in collectively advancing research frontiers. HotMetrics is expected to serve both as
a forum for presenting new ideas and for fostering collaborations between researchers.
We seek submissions of position papers that introduce hard research problems, propose new directions of
research, advocate non-traditional approaches to old or new domains, or generate debate and discussion
about issues in the field. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
                                                                                    Important Dates
       Performance-related issues in the design and development of emerging
        computer systems and networks.                                               April 7th, 2010:
       Tradeoffs and dependencies between performance and other metrics such        Paper submission
        as cost, energy consumption, reliability, availability, consistency, and
        security.                                                                    May 14th, 2010:
       Methodologies and frameworks for performance modeling, analysis, or           Notification of
        optimization.                                                                  acceptance
       Practical issues arising in system management and performance
        engineering.                                                                 June 18th, 2010:
Submission Guidelines

Papers must not exceed 5 double column pages (including figures, tables, and references) in the standard
ACM format (see Papers must be
submitted electronically in printable pdf form; for detailed submission instructions, refer to

The selected papers and their reviews will be published on-line before the workshop. After the workshop,
the revised papers and reviews -- together with additional commentaries summarizing the workshop
discussion -- will be published in the December 2010 issue of SIGMETRICS' Performance Evaluation Review
to provide wide distribution to the community.
