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. Nowadays, complex systems of all types, 
like Web-based systems, data centers and cloud infrastructures, social 
networks, peer-to-peer, mobile and wireless systems, cyber-physical 
systems, the Internet of Things, real-time and embedded systems, have 
increasingly distributed and dynamic system architectures that provide 
high flexibility, however, also increase the complexity of managing 
end-to-end application performance.
ICPE 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. The focus is both 
on classical metrics such as response time, throughput, resource 
utilization, and (energy) efficiency, as well as on the relationship of 
such metrics to other system properties including but not limited to 
scalability, elasticity, availability, reliability, and security.

This year's main theme is cost-effective performance engineering, where 
cost has a wide interpretation including measures such as effort and 
energy in addition to traditional performance measures.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Performance modeling of software
* Languages and ontologies
* Methods and tools
* Relationship/integration/tradeoffs with other QoS attributes
* Analytical, simulation and statistical modeling methodologies
* Model validation and calibration techniques
* Automatic model extraction
* Performance modeling and analysis tools

Performance and software development processes/paradigms
* Software performance patterns and anti-patterns
* Software/performance tool interoperability (models and data 
interchange formats)
* Performance-oriented design, implementation and configuration management
* Software Performance Engineering and Model-Driven Development
* Gathering, interpreting and exploiting software performance 
annotations and data
* System sizing and capacity planning techniques
* (Model-driven) Performance requirements engineering
* Relationship between performance and architecture
* Collaboration of development and operation (DevOps) for performance
* Performance and agile methods
* Performance in Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA)
* Performance of micro-service architectures and containers

Performance measurement, monitoring and analysis
* Performance measurement and monitoring techniques
* Analysis of measured application performance data
* Application tracing and profiling
* Workload characterization techniques
* Experimental design
* Tools for performance testing, measurement, profiling and tuning

* Performance metrics and benchmark suites
* Benchmarking methodologies
* Development of parameterizable, flexible benchmarks
* Benchmark workloads and scenarios
* Use of benchmarks in industry and academia

Run-time performance management
* Use of models at run-time
* Online performance prediction
* Autonomic resource management
* Utility-based optimization
* Capacity management

Power and performance, energy efficiency
* Power consumption models and management techniques
* Tradeoffs between performance and energy efficiency
* Performance-driven resource and power management

Performance modeling and evaluation in different environments and 
application domains
* Web-based systems, e-business, Web services
* Big data systems, data analytics systems, and other data analysis systems
* Internet of Things
* Social networks
* Cyber-physical systems
* Industrial Internet (Industry 4.0)
* Virtualization and cloud computing
* Autonomous/adaptive systems
* Transaction-oriented systems
* Communication networks
* Parallel and distributed systems
* Embedded systems
* Multi-core systems
* Cluster and grid computing environments
* High performance computing
* Event-based systems
* Real-time and multimedia systems
* Peer-to-peer, mobile and wireless systems

All other topics related to performance of software and 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 papers for
novel scientific insights, industrial and experience papers reporting on
applying performance engineering or benchmarks in practice, and
work-in-progress/vision papers for ongoing but yet interesting work.
Different acceptance criteria apply based on the expected content of the
individual contribution types.

Authors will be requested to self-classify their papers according to
topic and contribution style when submitting their papers.

Submissions to all tracks need to be uploaded to ICPE's submission system
and conform to the ACM submission format. For detailed submission
instructions, please visit: https://icpe2017.spec.org/submissions.html.

At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register at
the full rate, attend the conference and present the paper. Presented
papers will be published in the ICPE 2017 conference proceedings that
will be published by ACM and included in the ACM Digital Library. After
the conference, there will be a call for a special issue of a journal.

AUTHORS TAKE NOTE: The official publication date is the date the 
are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to 
two weeks
prior to the first day of your conference. The official publication date 
the deadline for any patent filings related to published work.
(For those rare conferences whose proceedings are published in the ACM 
Library after the conference is over, the official publication date 
remains the
first day of the conference.)
