The goal of the International Conference on Performance Engineering (ICPE)
to bridge the gap between theory and practice in the field of performance
engineering by providing a forum for sharing ideas and experiences between
industry and academia. ICPE is established as a joint meeting of the
ACM Workshop on Software and Performance (WOSP) and the SPEC International
Performance Evaluation Workshop (SIPEW). The conference will bring together
researchers and industry practitioners to share and present their
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
