The Sixth Workshop on Challenges in Performance Methods for Software 
                                   WOSP-C 2021
                                 CALL FOR PAPERS


Held in conjunction with ICPE, April 19 or 20, 2021, Rennes, France

- Aim and scope

WOSP-C provides a forum for the discussion of emerging or unaddressed 
challenges in
software and performance, including challenges in developing software to 
be performant,
concurrent programming issues, performance and architecture, performance 
cloud performance, and testing. Its purpose was to open up new avenues 
of research on
methods for software developers to address performance challenges. The 
software world
is changing, and there are new challenges.

The workshop welcomes contributions that discuss and/or address emerging 
problems and challenges that arise anywhere across the life cycle, from 
to design, testing and evolution of the product. In this sixth edition, 
we emphasize
contributions on software performance challenges in Cyber-Physical 
Systems (CPS).
CPS combine software and physical components in an infrastructure that 
is responsible
for computation and interaction with the physical world, with humans, 
and with other CPS.
New advances in computing and networking make that the software part in 
CPS gets
more and more responsibilities, raising new performance challenges

Contributions are welcome in any of the following areas, as well as on 
related topics:

- Software performance challenges in Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) and 
   processes (e.g., performance challenges in Digital Twins)
- Software performance challenges related to Industry 4.0
- Open source challenges to performance
- Performance challenges in Model-Driven Engineering
- Performance challenges in DevOps
- Modeling the performance of systems and components under development
- Non-intrusive measurement of resource usage and performance on a large 
- Building workload models from analytics
- Workload measurement for load generation
- Automated generation of performance requirements and modeling parameters
- Inference about performance and concurrency in cloud-based, physically 
based, and
   distributed systems
- Dealing with uncertainty in performance engineering

- Important dates

-Paper submission instructions

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished papers that are not 
being considered
in another forum. Papers should be in ACM format. They should describe 
research results,
experience, visions or new initiatives, and not exceed 6 pages in 
length. They should be
submitted via Easychair at 
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wospc2021. ACM templates
may be found here 
(http://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template). Presented papers
will be published in the ICPE 2021 conference proceedings that will be 
published by ACM
and included in the ACM Digital Library. Authors are required to adhere 
to the ACM Policy
and Procedures on Plagiarism as well as to the ACM Policy on Prior 
Publication and
Simultaneous Submissions. Concurrent submission of the same work to 
ICPE2021 and to
WOSP-C or any other ICPE2021 workshop is not permitted.
