The International Conference on Performance Engineering (ICPE) is the
leading international forum for presenting and discussing novel ideas,
innovations, trends, and experiences in the field of performance
engineering. Today’s systems are complex, rely increasingly on dynamic
architectures, and raise continuously important challenges related to
end-to-end performance management. This applies equally to emerging
domains, such as cyber-physical systems, and the Internet of Things,
big data and machine learning environments, cloud/edge/fog
infrastructures, and social networks, and also to traditional domains,
such as web-based, data centers, mobile and wireless systems, and
real-time systems.

ICPE brings together researchers and practitioners to report
state-of-the-art and in-progress research on performance engineering
of software and systems, including but not limited to performance
modeling, analysis, measurement, benchmark design, and run-time
performance management. The focus is both on classical metrics such as
response time, throughput, resource utilization, and (energy)
efficiency, and on the relationship of such metrics to other system
properties including but not limited to scalability, elasticity,
availability, reliability, cost, sustainability, security, and

This year’s main theme is “Performance Engineering under Uncertainty”.
Modern systems are subject to multiple sources of uncertainty due to
openness, heterogeneity, versatility, and variability. The complexity
of managing performance-related concerns under uncertainty is starting
to overwhelm even the capabilities of large engineering teams. We are
looking for contributions that use techniques to enhance the
performance modeling, estimation, and optimization of complex systems
while considering their intrinsic uncertainties. At the same time, we
are looking for all the contributions that improve the
state-of-the-art while analyzing the performance uncertainty of
software systems.
