Announcement: SIGMETRICS 2021 to go virtual

Under the current circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, global traveling and meeting have been heavily restricted and difficult. Although we very much hope to provide an opportunity for the community to gather in person in Beijing in June 2021, the health and safety of the community is our first priority. Thus, the SIGMETRICS committee has decided that the ACM SIGMETRICS 2021 conference will be held as a fully virtual event, at the scheduled dates (June 14-18, 2021).

We are committed to organizing a successful conference for the community. We will update the virtual event arrangement details soon. Please let us know if you have any concerns and suggestions regarding the arrangements.

Thank you very much!

On behalf of the ACM SIGMETRICS 2021 Organizing Committee,

Longbo Huang
