QEST 2016
International Conference on Quantitative Evaluation of Systems

Quebec City, August 23-25 2016

Co-located with CONCUR 2016


QEST is the leading forum on quantitative evaluation and verification of 
computer systems and networks.  Areas of interest include quantitative 
specification methods, stochastic models, and metrics for performance, 
reliability, safety, correctness, and security.  QEST is interested in 
both theoretical and experimental research. QEST welcomes a diversity of 
modeling formalisms, programming languages and methodologies that 
incorporate quantitative aspects such as probabilities, approximations 
and other quantitative aspects.  Papers may advance empirical, 
simulation and analytic methods.  Of particular interest are case 
studies that highlight the role of quantitative specification, modeling 
and evaluation in the design of systems. Systems of interest include 
computer hardware and software architectures, communication systems, 
cyberphysical systems, infrastructural systems, and biological systems.  
Papers that describe novel tools to support the practical application of 
research results in all of the above areas are also welcome.

PEVA SPECIAL ISSUE:  A selection of the best papers presented at QEST 
2016 will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper for a 
Special Issue that will appear in the journal Performance Evaluation.


Abstract submission:              7 March 2016
Paper and tool submission:        14 March 2016
Author notification:              10 May 2016
Final version due:                3 June 2016


Submissions describing original research in theory, methodology and 
techniques, application, or tools are invited.  In addition, Tool 
Demonstration may be submitted as short 4 page papers.  Submitted papers 
will be evaluated by at least three reviewers on the basis of 
originality, technical quality, scientific or practical contribution to 
the state of the art, methodology, clarity, and adequacy of references.

Submissions must be in English, Springer LNCS format. Submitted papers 
should not exceed 16 pages (4 pages for tool demonstrations).  
Additional material for the aid of the reviewers (e.g., proofs) may be 
included in an appendix. Papers must be unpublished and not be submitted 
for publication elsewhere.  Papers should be submitted electronically 
using EasyChair online submission system:

All accepted papers (including tool demonstrations) must be presented at 
the conference by one of the authors.  The QEST 2016 proceedings will be 
published by Springer in the LNCS Series (
