** UPDATE: COVID-19 **

IFIP WG 7.3 PERFORMANCE 2020 conference organizers are continuously

monitoring the COVID-19 situation from local authorities and the World

Health Organization. The conference is seven-month away, and we hope

that COVID-19 emergency will pass over and the conference will be held

in November, as planned. However, if necessary, alternative solutions,

such as postponement, remote presentations, etc. will be looked into

and identified.

** UPDATE: SPECIAL ISSUES **

Regular papers will be published in a special issue of the Elsevier

journal Performance Evaluation (PEVA). Alternatively, authors may

opt-out in favor of submission to other special issues in journals

related to Performance Evaluation and Operations Research.

Special Issues will appear in:

– ACM Transactions on Modeling and Performance Evaluation of Computing Systems

(TOMPECS, https://tompecs.acm.org)

– Queueing Systems: Theory and Applications

(QUESTA, https://link.springer.com/journal/11134)

– Stochastic Systems

(https://pubsonline.informs.org/journal/stsy)

** UPDATE: TUTORIALS **

The following tutorials have also been announced:

– Reliability and Availability Modeling in Practice, by

Prof. Kishor Trivedi (Duke University, North Carolina, USA) and

Prof. Andrea Bobbio (Università del Piemonte Orientale, Italy)

– Load balancing, redundancy, and multi-type job and server systems, by

Prof. Urtzi Ayesta (IRIT, Toulouse, France)

– AI4NETS – AI/ML for data communication Networks by

Dr. Pedro Casas (Austrian Institute of Technology, Leoben, Austria)

** CONFERENCE TOPICS **

The IFIP Performance conference aims to bring together researchers

interested in understanding and improving the performance of computing

and communication systems by means of state-of-the-art quantitative

models and solution techniques. Research papers on the design of

algorithms, mathematical analysis and modeling, simulation and

measurement techniques for computer systems or communication networks

are solicited.

Topics of interest include the following.

Performance-oriented methodologies including:

– Stochastic modelling, statistical analysis and simulation

– Capacity planning, resource allocation, routing, scheduling and

Quality of Service

– Energy-efficient computing and networking

– Computer architectures and operating systems

– Network architectures, protocols and congestion control

– Storage systems and datacenters

Evaluation techniques, and algorithms for:

– Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning

– Blockchains and crypto-currency

– Cyber-physical systems, Internet of Things, fog computing

– Data centers, content delivery, cloud computing and virtualization

– Internet and web services

– Network economics and markets

– Security systems

– Social networks, multimedia systems and smart grid

– Wireless, ad-hoc and cellular networks

** IMPORTANT DATES **

Abstract submission: May 10th, 2020

Full paper submission: May 17th, 2020

Notification to authors: July 19th, 2020

** PAPER SUBMISSION **

Performance 2020 accepts submissions in two categories:

– Regular papers: 12 pages

– Short papers: 6 pages

Regular papers should not exceed 12 pages double-column and

single-spaced including figures, tables and references in standard ACM

format. Short papers are limited to 6 pages. In addition (both for

regular and short paper submissions), a 2-page appendix is permitted,

which is not included in the page-count. Papers must be submitted

electronically in printable pdf form. Templates for the standard ACM

format can be found at

https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template. Both the strict

and alternate styles are acceptable for submission. No changes to

margins, spacing or font sizes are allowed from those specified by the

style files. Papers violating the formatting guidelines will be

returned without review.

Authors of rejected Sigmetrics 2020 papers are invited to submit a

revised version of their paper, which would then be reviewed again as

new by at least one of its Sigmetrics reviewers to aid consistency.

The authors are allowed to include a response to the Sigmetrics

reviews in a clearly-marked appendix that will not count against the

page limit.

Papers can be submitted at

https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=performance2020

All submissions will be reviewed using a double-blind review process.

The identity of authors and referees will not be revealed to each

other. To ensure double-blind reviewing, authors names and

affiliations should not appear in the paper and bibliographic

references should be made in such a way as to preserve author

anonymity.

Warning: It is ACM policy not to allow double submissions, where the

same paper is submitted to more than one conference/journal

concurrently. Any double submissions detected will be rejected

immediately from all conferences/journals involved.

Accepted short papers (limited to 6 pages ) and abstracts of accepted

regular papers will be published in a special issue of the ACM

Performance Evaluation Review (PER).

** SPECIAL ISSUES **

Regular papers will be published in a special issue of the Elsevier

journal Performance Evaluation (PEVA).

Alternatively, authors may opt-out in favor of submission to other

special issues in journals related to Performance Evaluation and

Operations Research.

Eligible papers are:

– extensions of short-papers and

– long papers that opt-out of publication in Performance Evaluation (PEVA).

Authors need to make sure that their work falls within the scope of

the respective journal. All the papers will be reviewed according to

the standards of the journal.

Special Issues will appear in:

1. ACM Transactions on Modeling and Performance Evaluation of

Computing Systems (TOMPECS).

The editors will invite the authors of a few papers (short or long) to

submit a full-length manuscript. Prepare your manuscript using the

same manuscript preparation guidelines as the ones for regular TOMPECS

submissions.

2. Queueing Systems: Theory and Applications (QUESTA)

All conference papers (short and long papers that opt-out of PEVA) may

submit to the SI. The conference version of the paper published in

PER should be no more than 6 pages. Accepted full papers that opt out

of PEVA will have to be shortened by the authors if they wish to have

their paper submitted to Queueing Systems. Prepare your manuscript

using the same manuscript preparation guidelines as the ones for

regular QUESTA submissions.

3. Stochastic Systems

The conference version of the paper published in PER should be no more

than 6 pages. Accepted full papers that opt out of PEVA will have to

be shortened by the authors if they wish to have their paper submitted

to Stochastic Systems. Prepare your manuscript using the same

manuscript preparation guidelines as the ones for regular stochastic

systems submissions.
