Authors  are  invited  to  submit original, unpublished papers that are not
being  considered  in  another  forum. A variety of contribution styles for
papers  are  solicited  including:  basic  and applied research, industrial
experience   reports,   and   work-in-progress/vision   papers.   Different
acceptance  criteria  apply  for each category. At least one author of each
accepted  paper is required to attend the conference and present the paper.
Only  the  accepted and presented papers will be published in the ICPE 2012
conference  proceedings.   The  conference proceedings will be published by
ACM  and  included  in  the ACM Digital Library.  The top ranked conference
paper  will  be  awarded  a best paper award. Extended versions of selected
papers  will  be considered for publication in a special issue of a journal
(to be announced).

Submission tracks

Research paper track

Papers  submitted  in  this  track will be thoroughly reviewed for novelty,
technical  quality,  scientific  soundness  and relevance.   Research track
submissions  should be clearly indicated either as "Full Research Paper" or
"Short  Research Paper". Submissions must be in the standard ACM format for
conference  proceedings.  Full  research  papers should not exceed 12 pages
double  column  including  figures  and  tables.  Short research papers are
limited to 6 pages.

Industry and experience papers track

Papers in this track cover innovative implementations, novel applications
of performance-related technologies, interesting performance results and
experience in applying recent research advances to industrial situations on
any of the topics of interest.  All papers submitted in this track will be
reviewed by the ICPE 2012 Industrial Track Program Committee for
originality, quality, soundness and relevance. Papers in this track should
be clearly indicated as "Industrial/Experience Paper". To qualify for this
track, a paper must strictly satisfy the following 2 criteria:
	- The first author must be from industry or affiliated with industry
when the work was carried out (e.g., through an industrial internship)
	- A majority of the authors must be from industry or affiliated with
industry when the work was carried out.
Submissions must be in the standard ACM format or conference proceedings.
Papers should be 5-12 pages double column including figures and tables.

Posters and demos track

Poster  papers  provide  a  forum  for  authors to present their work in an
informal  and  interactive  setting.  They  allow  authors  and  interested
participants  to  connect  to each other and to engage in discussions about
the  work  presented. Poster papers should briefly summarize the work to be
presented motivating its relevance to the performance engineering community
and providing pointers to further information and related work.

Demo  papers  present  an  existing  tool  or  research  prototype  clearly
identifying  the novelty of the ideas demonstrated. Authors are expected to
prepare  a  poster  and  perform  a  live demonstration on their own laptop
during  the poster session. Demo papers must describe the goals of the demo
as  well  as  key  ideas  involved  in  building  the tool or prototype. In
addition  they  can  include  some  use  cases  or  specific  results to be
presented as part of the demo.

Both poster and demo papers will appear in the ICPE 2012 Conference
Proceedings.  Poster and demo submissions should be clearly indicated as
"Poster Paper" or "Demo Paper", respectively. Submissions must be in the
standard ACM format for conference proceedings. Poster and demo submissions
must not exceed 2 pages double column including figures and tables.

Tutorials track

Tutorial proposals should include a brief description of the material to be
presented,  the  intended  audience  and  assumed  background of attendees.
Tutorial  levels  may be introductory, intermediate, or advanced. Topics of
broad  interest  are  preferred.  The  intended  length of the tutorial (90
minute  or  3  hours)  should  be  indicated and contact information (name,
email,  address,  telephone  number,  and  FAX  number)  as well as a brief
biography  of  speaker(s) should be included. In case the proposed tutorial
has  been  presented  previously, it should be indicated where the tutorial
has been given and how it will be modified for ICPE 2012.

Tutorial  proposals  should  be  clearly indicated as "Tutorial Proposals".
Submissions  must be in the standard ACM format for conference proceedings.
Tutorial  proposals must not exceed 2 pages double column including figures
and tables.

Authors  of  accepted  tutorial  proposals are expected to prepare a set of
slides   to  be  distributed  to  participants,  including  a  bibliography
pertinent  to  the  tutorial.  The  camera-ready  set  of  slides should be
submitted  as  a  PDF  file with two slides per page. Proposers of accepted
tutorials  will  be  given  the opportunity to submit a tutorial paper. The
content of a tutorial paper must be on the material covered by the tutorial
and  must  not exceed 4-12 pages in ACM format. Tutorial papers will appear
in the ICPE 2012 Conference Proceedings.

Work-in-progress and vision papers track

The  goal  of the work-in-progress and vision track is two-fold: i) provide
the  opportunity  for  attendees to present and discuss preliminary results
from  their  latest  work obtaining some early feedback from the community,
ii)  provide  the  opportunity  to  present position papers on emerging hot
topics  in  the  field  of  performance engineering motivating new research
directions.  Authors of accepted papers will be given 15 minutes to present
their paper followed by a 10 minute discussion.

Work-in-progress   papers   present   promising  preliminary  results  from
work-in-progress  that  has  not  been  validated  in  full.  Although full
validation is not required, the work presented should be advanced enough as
to allow attendees to appreciate its scope and significance.

Vision  papers  present emerging research challenges and long-term research
directions on hot topics relevant to the performance engineering community.
Submissions  should  clearly  present  the  research  questions  and  their
rationale  sketching  possible  approaches to their resolution. The goal of
such papers is to motivate new research and generate debate and discussions
on the latest challenges in the field of performance engineering.

All  contributions  must  be original, not published, accepted or submitted
for   publication   elsewhere.   Accepted   papers  will  be  published  as
post-proceedings in the ACM Digital Library.

Papers   submitted   in   this   track   should  be  clearly  indicated  as
"Work-in-Progress  Paper" or "Vision Paper", respectively. Submissions must
be  in the standard ACM format for conference proceedings. Papers should be
4-6  pages  double  column  including  figures  and  tables. Papers must be
submitted in PDF format via the conference submission system.
