ICPE 2014 : ACM/SPEC International Conference on Performance Engineering

  in Conferences   Posted on September 8, 2013

The goal of the International Conference on Performance Engineering(ICPE) is to integrate theory and practice in the field of performance engineering by providing a forum for sharing ideas and experiences between industry and academia. ICPE is a joint meeting of the ACM Workshop on Software and Performance (WOSP) and the SPEC International Performance Evaluation Workshop (SIPEW). The conference brings together researchers and industry practitioners to share and present their experience, to discuss challenges, and to report state-of-the-art and in-progress research on performance engineering of software and systems.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited, to:

Performance and software development processes

Techniques to elicit and incorporate performance, availability, power and other extra-functional requirements throughout the software and system lifecycle

Agile, performance-test-driven development

Performance engineering in commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) systems; service-oriented architectures (SOA); web-based systems and services; smart systems; automated control systems; transport systems; embedded, real-time and mobile systems

Performance-requirement reengineering and design for software performance predictability

Software performance modeling, patterns and anti-patterns

Performance modeling and prediction

Languages, annotations, tools and methodologies to support model-based performance engineering

Analytical, simulation, statistical, AI-based and hybrid modeling/prediction methods

Automated model discovery and model building

Model validation and calibration techniques

Performance measurement and experimental analysis

Performance measurement, monitoring and workload characterization techniques

Test planning, tools for performance, load testing, measurement, profiling and tuning

Automated model extraction for functional or partially functional systems

Methodologies for performance testing and for functional testing

Reproduction and reproducibility of performance studies

Benchmarking, configuration, sizing, and capacity planning

Benchmark design and benchmarking methods, metrics and suites

Development of new, configurable and/or scalable benchmarks

Use of benchmarks in industry and academia

System configuration, sizing and capacity planning techniques

System management/optimization

Use of models for run-time configuration/management

Online performance prediction and model parameter estimation

Adaptive resource management

Performance in cloud, virtualized and multi-core systems

Modeling, monitoring, and testing of cloud computing platforms and applications

Performance/management of virtualized machines, storage and networks

Performance engineering of multi-core and parallel systems

Performance and power

Algorithms for combined power and performance management

Instrumentation, profiling, modeling and measurement of power consumption

Power/performance engineering in grid/cluster/cloud/mobile computing systems

Performance modeling and evaluation in other domains such as:

Web-based systems, e-business, web services, SOAs

Transaction-oriented and event-based systems

Embedded and autonomous systems

Real-time and multimedia systems

Peer-to-peer, mobile and wireless systems

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished papers that are not being considered in another forum. A variety of contribution styles for papers are solicited including: basic and applied research,industrial experience reports, and work-in-progress/vision papers. Different acceptance criteria apply for each category. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to attend the conference and present the paper. Only the accepted and presented papers will be published in the ICPE 2014 conference proceedings that will be published by ACM and included in the ACM Digital Library.
