Conference Scope

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

EPEW 2015 is co-located with CONCUR 2015, FORMATS 2015, QEST 2015 and TGC 2015. For information on all the conferences, check the co-location event MADRID MEET 2015.

Original papers related to theoretical and methodological issues as well as case studies and automated tool support are solicited in the following three areas:

  1. Performance modeling and evaluation:
    • Probabilistic models
    • Stochastic models
    • Real-time models
    • Performability models
    • Queueing networks
    • Quantitative extensions of automata
    • Quantitative extensions of Petri nets
    • Quantitative extensions of process calculi
    • Specification of quantitative properties
    • Analytical solution techniques
    • Numerical solution techniques
    • Simulation techniques
    • Quantitative model checking
    • Quantitative equivalence checking
    • Quantitative static analysis
  2. System and network performance engineering:
    • Performance engineering of distributed, mobile, and embedded systems
    • Performance engineering of wired and wireless communication networks
    • Performance engineering of multimedia environments
    • Cluster computing, grid computing, and peer-to-peer computing
    • Performance-oriented design of computer systems and networks
    • Constraint-based and model-driven system design
    • Performance analysis, simulation, and experimental design
    • Benchmark design and benchmark-based evaluation and monitoring
    • Graceful degradation system design
    • Quality of service and quality of security
  3. Software performance engineering:
