IBM computer scientists have been at the forefront of scientific and technological innovation across a broad range of research areas. They have made pioneering contributions in artificial intelligence, high-speed processor design, computer architecture, natural language processing, programming languages, optimizing compilers, operating systems, storage systems, computer-supported cooperative work, databases, speech recognition, integer programming, and service-oriented architectures, to name a few.
Mark Squillante, IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center, was Workshop Chair for the 2015 ACM SIGMETRICS Workshop on MAthematical performance Modeling and Analysis which took place 15 June 2015 in conjunction with ACM Sigmetrics 2015, in Portland, Oregon, USA.
The Workshop on MAthematical performance Modeling and Analysis (MAMA) seeks to bring together researchers working on the mathematical, methodological and theoretical aspects of performance analysis, modeling and optimization. It is intended to provide a forum at SIGMETRICS conferences for talks on early research in the more mathematical areas of computer performance analysis. These talks tend to be based on very recent research results (including work in progress) or on new research results that will be otherwise submitted only to a journal (or recently have been submitted to a journal). Thus, part of the goal is to complement and supplement the SIGMETRICS Conference program with such talks without removing any theoretical contributions from the main technical program.
