About the Performance Bulletin Board

The Performance bulletin board is a moderated distribution list sponsored by ACM SIGMETRICS. It is intended for the exchange of technical information among members of the performance evaluation community. Typical submissions include performance-related questions and announcements of research papers, software, job opportunities, conferences, and calls for papers.

Submissions should be sent to performance@merlot.usc.edu (please do not send submissions to the bulletin board editor unless there are stated special circumstances). Anyone can make a submission (not just a member of the list), and all submissions are reviewed by the moderator before being distributed. Requirements and suggestions for submissions are listed here. [7/2/2019: We have been experiencing problem with email for the past 3 weeks. Your submissions (and requests to modify your membership) may have been lost due to this problem. We are hoping to get this fixed in the near future. Please re-submit when you no longer see this message. Very sorry about the inconvenience.]
