Performance is one of the most relevant quality attributes of any IT
system. While good performance leads to high user satisfaction, weak
response times lead to loss of users, perceived unavailability of the
system, or unnecessarily high costs of network or compute resources.
Therefore, various techniques to evaluate, control, and improve the
performance of IT systems have been developed, ranging from online
monitoring and benchmarking to modeling and prediction. Experience
shows, that for system design or later optimization, such techniques
need to be applied in smart combination.

Therefore, the Symposium on Software Performance (SSP) brings together
researchers and practitioners interested in all facets of software
performance, ranging from modeling and prediction to monitoring and
runtime management. It will be packed with sessions about the latest
advances in performance-related research and also covers tools and
experiences in the field of software performance. The symposium is
organized by four already established research groups, namely Descartes,
Kieker, Palladio, and Performance Management Group who will use this
symposium also as a joint developer and community meeting.
General topcis of interest:
  * Application performance management
  * Software performance patterns and anti‐patterns
  * Thoughts and experiences on the influence of the software
    architecture on software performance
  * Extraction and calibration of performance models
  * Performance in virtualized environments
  * Performance in trade‐off with other quality attributes,
    e.g., security or reliability
  * Model‐driven approaches for instrumentation and analysis
  * Automatic approaches for performance problem detection, diagnosis,
    and resolution
  * Performance-related challenges in industrial software systems
  * Application of Descartes, Kieker, or Palladio in projects
  * Combined applications of Descartes, Kieker, and Palladio
  * Palladio used for the prediction of other quality properties beyond
  * Wish lists of tool features


We solicit the following two types of submissions: technical papers
maximum 3 pages) and extended abstracts for industry or experience
talks (maximum 700 words). Technical papers should follow the standard
ACM SIG proceedings format and need to be submitted electronically via
EasyChair. Extended abstracts need to be submitted as "abstract only"
submissions via EasyChair. Submitted papers can be research papers,
position papers, case studies or experience reports including but not
limited to approaches employing Descartes, Kieker, and/or Palladio.

Note that we explicitly welcome contributions that have already been
(partially) presented at other events or in publications.

Presentations will be organized in sessions with 30-minute slots
incl. discussion. At least one author of each accepted paper is required
to register, attend the conference and present the paper.

Proceedings - Accepted technical papers will be published in the
Softwaretechnik-Trends after the symposium. Extended abstracts will not
be published.

Registration is now open! You can register for the SSP here:
