CALL FOR PAPERS
The IFIP PERFORMANCE 2018 conference solicits research papers on the
design of algorithms, mathematical modeling, simulation and measurement
techniques for computer systems or communication networks.
Topics of interest include the following
Methodologically-oriented design and evaluation studies of:
. Net Neutrality.
. Cyber-physical systems, Internet of Things, fog computing.
. Energy - smart grid, markets, EVs, renewables.
. Services employing Internet-as-platform.
· Wireless, mobile, ad-hoc, sensor and cellular networks.
· Data centers, content delivery, cloud computing and virtualization.
· Computer architectures, memory systems and storage systems.
· Security systems.
. Network architectures, protocols and algorithms.
· Operating systems, file systems and databases.
Methodologies, evaluation techniques, and algorithms for:
. Congestion control in the Internet and in datacenters.
· Network science, social networks, complex networks.
. Network economics, markets, incentives and mechanism design.
· Capacity planning, resource allocation, routing, scheduling.
· System measurement and monitoring.
· Stochastic analysis, statistical analysis and simulation.
. Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Big Data.
· Large scale data collection, management and processing.
Submissions can be either the standard long paper (12 pages) or a short
paper (at least 4 pages and no more than 6 pages). Accepted long papers
will be published in a special issue of Performance Evaluation (PEVA),
and they will be freely available via ScienceDirect during the first 12
months after publication. Short papers will be published in a special
issue (most likely December 2018) of Performance Evaluation Review
(PER). Long and short papers will be allotted 30 and 22.5 mins
respectively for presentation in Performance 2018. The submission site
Authors of accepted papers may contribute to one of the Special Issues
in ACM TOMPECS, Queueing Systems and Stochastic Systems that will follow
the conference. Eligible papers are extensions of short-papers and long
papers that opt-out of publication in PEVA. For more details see the
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 blind reviewing, authors' names and affiliations should not
appear in the paper; bibliographic references should be made in such a
way as to preserve author anonymity. Papers will be selected on the
basis of their originality, technical standards, relevance and clarity.
Submissions must be made electronically, details will be provided in the
