*InfQ 2018 – New Frontiers in Quantitative Methods in Informatics*


November 22nd, 2018, Politecnico di Milano – Italy

In conjunction with PASM 2018

Preliminary call for papers


The eighth Workshop of the Italian group on Quantitative Methods in
Informatics (InfQ 2018) will be held in Milano, co-located with PASM 2018,
after the past successful editions in Pisa (2010), Lipari (2011), Lucca
(2012), Sorrento (2013), Torino (2014), Taormina (2016), and Venice (2017).

InfQ is the leading Italian forum on quantitative modelling, evaluation,
and verification, of computer, networks, telecommunication systems, and
more general classes of man-made, social, or natural systems.

InfQ welcomes both contributions on methodology and application, and gives
value to both the theoretical and practical perspectives. Conference topics
include, but are not limited to:

- quantitative modelling formalisms, solution techniques, and tools for
probabilistic or stochastic systems possibly combining non-determinism,
queueing networks, analytical numerical or statistical solution, fluid and
hybrid behavior, emergent behavior and collective systems, game theory,
hierarchical or multi-formalism composition and model driven engineering,
soft computing;

- applications of quantitative methods in a variety of contexts, notably
including Industry 4.0, blockchain, cloud/edge/fog computing, Internet of
Things, cyber physical systems, smart cities, smart energy, e-healthcare
and Ambient assisted living, social and urban computing, bioinformatics,
software defined networks, quantum computing, capacity planning, load
characterization, self adaptive systems.

This year, a special track on Machine Learning for Performance Evaluation
will be hosted, to solicit and support cross-fertilization of quantitative
methods in informatics and artificial intelligence. Papers submitted to
this special track will undergo a separate review process, but will be
presented and included in the same proceedings as the regular InfQ papers.

Continuing its tradition, the InfQ Workshop welcomes not only mature
results but also contributions reporting work in progress and research
developed by PhD students, with the aim of making them available to a broad
audience and promote the exchange and collaboration among experienced and
young researchers from the different Italian Universities and Research

*Venue *

The workshop will be held at Politecnico di Milano in Aula Alpha, building
24, Via Golgi 42, Milano, Italy.


All InfQ participants must register using the registration form. Details
will follow.

*Submission process and types of contributions*

Contributions must be submitted in electronic format (PDF) through
Easychair (following this link). Submitted papers must be unpublished and
not submitted elsewhere, written in English, and formatted according to the
Springer LaTex style.

Two different types of contributions are welcome:

-       full conference papers, not exceeding 14 pages, reporting mature
results of scientific or industrial research;

-       short papers, not exceeding 6 pages, reporting experience or
preliminary results from ongoing research or projects.

Each submitted paper will be reviewed by at least three referees, from a
Program Committee combining together leading Italian and international
researchers, on the basis of originality, scientific and practical
contribution to the state-of-the-art, technical soundness, and quality of
presentation. The previous rules also apply to the special track papers.

All accepted papers will be presented at the workshop. We are currently
working to include InfQ conference proceedings in the CCIS (Communications
in Computer and Information Science) series, published by Springer Verlag
(acceptance pending), which is included in Springer e-book packages and
covered by all major indexing services, including Scopus.

Proceedings will be published after the Workshop, and electronic versions
of accepted papers will be distributed in electronic format.

The workshop program will also include a PhD Defense Corner were doctoral
students who have already achieved a good level of maturity in their
research program can present and discuss an early version of their
dissertation. Proposals of presentation, not exceeding 4 pages and
including title, abstract, contact information, and affiliation must be
submitted directly to the PC Chairs.

Contributions should be submitted in electronic format (PDF) through

Easychair submission link:
