The goal of the International Conference on Performance Engineering 
(ICPE) is to integrate 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 
brings together researchers and industry practitioners to share and 
present their experiences, 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 management.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Performance and software development processes
   *  Techniques to elicit and incorporate performance, availability, 
power and other extra-functional requirements throughout the software 
and system lifecycle
   *  Agile, performance-test-driven development
   *  Performance engineering in Commercial-of-the-Shelf (COTS) system, 
Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA), web-based systems and services, 
smart systems, automated control systems, transport systems, embedded, 
real-time, and mobile systems
   *  Performance-requirement reengineering and design for software 
performance predictability
   *  Software performance modeling, patterns and anti-patterns

Performance modeling and prediction
   *  Languages, annotations, tools and methodologies to support 
model-based performance engineering
   *  Analytical, simulation, statistical, AI-based, and hybrid 
modeling/prediction methods
   *  Automated model discovery and model building
   *  Model validation and calibration techniques

Performance measurement, and experimental analysis
   *  Performance measurement, monitoring, and workload characterization 
   *  Test planning, tools for performance, load testing, measurement, 
profiling and tuning
   *  Automated model extraction for functional or partially functional 
   *  Methodologies for performance testing and for functional testing
   *  Reproduction and reproducibility of performance studies

Benchmarking, configuration, sizing, and capacity planning
   *  Benchmark design and benchmarking methods, metrics, and suites
   *  Development of new, configurable, and/or scalable benchmarks
   *  Use of benchmarks in industry and academia
   *  System configuration, sizing and capacity planning techniques

System management/optimization
   *  Use of models for run-time configuration/management
   *  Online performance prediction and model parameter estimation
   *  Adaptive resource management

Performance in Cloud, Virtualized and multi-core systems
   *  Modeling, monitoring, and testing of cloud computing platforms and 
   *  Performance/management of virtualized machines, storage and networks
   *  Performance engineering of multi-core and parallel systems

Performance and Power
   *  Algorithms for combined power and performance management
   *  Instrumentation, profiling, modeling and measurement of power 
   *  Power/performance engineering in grid/cluster/cloud/mobile 
computing systems

Performance modeling and evaluation in other domains such as:
   *  Web-based systems, e-business, web services, SOAs
   *  Transaction-oriented and event-based systems
   *  Embedded and autonomous systems
   *  Real-time and multimedia systems
   *  Peer-to-peer, mobile and wireless systems

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, please refer to the website 
for details. 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 2013 conference 
proceedings that will be published by ACM and included in the ACM 
Digital Library.


Papers will be thoroughly reviewed for novelty, technical quality, 
scientific soundness and relevance. Research track submissions should be 
clearly indicated in the text either as "Full Research Paper" or "Short 
Research Paper". Submissions must be in the standard ACM format for 
conference proceedings 
(http://www.acm.org/chapters/policy/toolkit/template.html). Full 
research papers should not exceed 12 pages double column including 
figures and tables; short research papers are limited to 6 pages. 
Industrial/Experience papers are limited to 8 pages double column 
including figures and tables. Work-in-Progress and Vision papers should 
not exceed 4 pages double column including figures and tables. Research 
track papers, Industry and Experience papers and Work-in-Progress and 
Vision papers should be submitted via EasyChair. Tutorial proposals and 
Poster and Demonstration submissions must not exceed 2 pages and should 
be sent directly to the relevant chair. Detailed submission instructions 
are available on the conference website.
