SIGMETRICS is the Association for Computing Machinery's Special Interest Group on Measurement and Evaluation, which specializes in the field of performance analysis, measurement, and modeling of computer systems. It is also the name of an annual 'flagship' conference, organized by SIGMETRICS since 1973, which is considered to be the leading conference in performance analysis and modeling in the world. Known to have an extremely low acceptance rate (~15%), many of the landmark works in the area have been published through it.
Beyond the flagship conference, SIGMETRICS also promotes research into performance analysis, measurement, and modeling through a number of other activities. It sponsors two other prestigious conferences: the Internet Measurement Conference (IMC) and the Performance conference (which is held jointly with the SIGMETRICS conference every third year). Additionally, SIGMETRICS produces a magazine, Performance Evaluation Review, with both peer-reviewed and editorial content.
SIGMETRICS always has three awards that it gives out annually:
- The SIGMETRICS Achievement Award, which recognizes a senior researcher who has made long-lasting influential contributions to computer/communication performance evaluation.
- The SIGMETRICS Rising Star Award, which recognizes a junior researcher who demonstrates outstanding potential for research in computer/communication performance evaluation.
- The SIGMETRICS Test of Time Award, which recognizes an influential SIGMETRICS paper from 10-12 years previously.
The group was formed as SIGME (Special Interest Committee on Measurement and Evaluation) in 1971, the name was changed to SIGMETRICS in 1972.
Each year the group gives three awards, the lifetime achievement award, rising star award and test of time award.
The achievement award is given each year to an individual who has made "long-lasting, influential contributions to the theory or practice of computer/communication system performance evaluation."
