8th ACM/SPEC International Conference on Performance Engineering

       Sponsored by ACM SIGMETRICS, SIGSOFT, and SPEC RG

                                    L'Aquila, Italy
                                 April 22-26, 2017




Workshop Proposals:

Workshop Proposals Notification:
Nov 19, 2016



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. Nowadays, complex systems of all types, like Web-based systems, data centers and cloud infrastructures, social networks, peer-to-peer, mobile and wireless systems, cyber-physical systems, the Internet of Things, real-time and embedded systems, have increasingly distributed and dynamic system architectures that provide high flexibility, however, also increase the complexity of managing end-to-end application performance.
ICPE 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. The focus is both on classical metrics such as response time, throughput, resource utilization, and (energy) efficiency, as well as on the relationship of such metrics to other system properties including but not limited to scalability, elasticity, availability, reliability, and security.



Workshop proposals are invited for ICPE 2017 on specific aspects of performance engineering, particularly relating to the subject areas indicated by the conference call for papers. We encourage workshops that will discuss fundamental research issues driven by academic interests or more applied industrial or commercial concerns. The format of the workshop will be determined by the organizers and can include invited talks, panel discussions, work in progress, and fully refereed papers. Workshops can vary in length from a half day to a full day. Having more than one co-organizer for a workshop is strongly advised. The workshop proceedings will be published by ACM.

More information can be found at



Proposals for workshops should be no more than 2 pages in length. They should contain the following information:

- Title and brief technical description of the workshop, specifying the goals and the technical issues that will be its focus.
- Data about previous instances of the workshop including links to the corresponding websites.
- The names and contact information (web page, email address) of the organizing committee; a short bio and the qualifications of the main organizers with respect to organizing this workshop.
- Estimated number of attendees.
- Link to a preliminary web site of the workshop and a preliminary call for papers.
- A list of committed and proposed PC members.



Each workshop organizing committee will be responsible for:

- Producing a web page and a "Call for Papers/Participation" for their workshop. The URL should be sent to the workshop co-chairs for ICPE 2017.
- Providing a brief description of the workshop for the conference web page and program.
- Selecting the participants and the format of the workshop.
- Ensuring that suitable quality measures have been taken to ensure that the accepted papers are of high quality.

The ICPE Organizing Committee will be responsible for:

- Providing a link to a workshop website.
- Providing logistics support and a meeting place for the workshop.
- Providing copies of the workshop proceedings to attendees.



Workshop proposals and inquiries should be sent by email to the workshop co-chairs Catia Trubiani ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>) and Hanspeter Mössenböck ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>). Proposals should be sent in PDF format.
