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 “continuous performance assurance in agile

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
* 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 microservice 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, deep-learning systems, and other data analytics
* 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
* Low-latency 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 is 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 innovative 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
the provided topic areas 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://icpe2018.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 2018 conference proceedings that
will be published by ACM and included in the ACM Digital Library.

Authors of accepted research papers are invited to submit an artifact to
the ACM/SPEC ICPE 2018 Artifact Track.

The highest quality papers, judged by multiple relevant factors, will be
recognized with an award. Authors of selected papers will be invited to
submit an extended version of their work to a journal.

AUTHORS TAKE NOTE: The official publication date is the date the
proceedings 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 affects the deadline for any patent filings
related to published work. (For those rare conferences whose proceedings
are published in the ACM Digital Library after the conference is over,
the official publication date remains the first day of the conference.)
