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


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

  *  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


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.
