Call For Papers

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 established as 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 experiences, discuss challenges, and report state-of-the-art and in-progress research on performance engineering of software and systems, including performance measurement, modeling, benchmark design, and run-time performance management.

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-of-the-Shelf (COTS) system, 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 and vision papers. Different acceptance criteria, submission deadlines and submission instructions 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 2013 conference proceedings that will be published by ACM and included in the ACM Digital Library.
