  8th European Performance Engineering Workshop - EPEW 2011

********* NEWS***********

  • The EPEW proceedings will be published by Springer in Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) volume 6977
  • EPEW is to be held in the beautiful English Lake District. The conference venue will be the Lodore Falls Hotel in Borrowdale, near Keswick
  • Keynote presentations will be given by Samuel Kounev (KIT, Germany) and John Murphy (UCD, Ireland)
  • The list of accepted papers and poster presentations is now available.

The European Performance Engineering Workshop is an annual event that aims to gather researchers working on all aspects of performance modelling and analysis.

We solicit original papers on performance evaluation techniques for computer and telecommunication systems analysis. Papers on or related to the following topics are particularly welcome.

  • Performance-oriented design and analysis methods
  • Formal modelling paradigms: stochastic process algebra, stochastic Petri nets, stochastic automata networks, Markov chains, queueing theory,...
  • Solution and simplification techniques for Markov processes and non-Markovian stochastic processes
  • Model checking and validation
  • Approximate results for Markov and semi-Markov Processes
  • Simulation techniques and experimental design
  • Benchmarks and benchmark evaluation
  • Performance tools
  • Performance case studies
  • Performability modelling
  • Software performance engineering
  • Performance and power consumption tradeoffs
  • Performance overhead of secure systems
  • New frontiers of performance evaluation/modelling
  • Performance analysis of communication networks, mobile and wireless networks, software systems, distributed systems, system architectures, embedded systems, web-based systems, grid computing,...

Paper submission

Authors are invited to submit papers for the workshop to EasyChair by June 7th, 2011. Submissions must be original and should not have been published previously or be under consideration for publication while being evaluated for this workshop.

Papers are to be prepared in LNCS format and must not exceed 15 pages, including figures, tables and references. The first page should contain title, authors’ names and affiliation, and a list of keywords. The papers must be electronically submitted to the conference management system in PDF or PS format. We welcome short papers (up to 10 pages) for tool demonstrations and poster presentations.

Important dates:
  • Submission deadline: 7 June 2011
  • Author notification: 29 June 2011
  • Camera-ready copy: 15 July 2011
  • Workshop: 12-13 October 2011
