Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this message.


** UPDATE: COVID-19 **
IFIP WG 7.3 PERFORMANCE 2020 conference organizers are continuously
monitoring the COVID-19 situation from local authorities and the World
Health Organization. The conference is seven-month away, and we hope
that COVID-19 emergency will pass over and the conference will be held
in November, as planned. However, if necessary, alternative solutions,
such as postponement, remote presentations, etc. will be looked into
and identified.


** UPDATE: SPECIAL ISSUES **
Regular papers will be published in a special issue of the Elsevier
journal Performance Evaluation (PEVA). Alternatively, authors may
opt-out in favor of submission to other special issues in journals
related to Performance Evaluation and Operations Research.

Special Issues will appear in:

- ACM Transactions on Modeling and Performance Evaluation of Computing Systems
(TOMPECS, https://tompecs.acm.org)

- Queueing Systems: Theory and Applications
(QUESTA, https://link.springer.com/journal/11134)

- Stochastic Systems
(https://pubsonline.informs.org/journal/stsy)


** UPDATE: TUTORIALS **
The following tutorials have also been announced:

- Reliability and Availability Modeling in Practice, by
Prof. Kishor Trivedi (Duke University, North Carolina, USA) and
Prof. Andrea Bobbio (Università del Piemonte Orientale, Italy)

- Load balancing, redundancy, and multi-type job and server systems, by
Prof. Urtzi Ayesta (IRIT, Toulouse, France)

- AI4NETS – AI/ML for data communication Networks by
Dr. Pedro Casas (Austrian Institute of Technology, Leoben, Austria)


** CONFERENCE TOPICS **
The IFIP Performance conference aims to bring together researchers
interested in understanding and improving the performance of computing
and communication systems by means of state-of-the-art quantitative
models and solution techniques. Research papers on the design of
algorithms, mathematical analysis and modeling, simulation and
measurement techniques for computer systems or communication networks
are solicited.

Topics of interest include the following.

Performance-oriented methodologies including:

- Stochastic modelling, statistical analysis and simulation
- Capacity planning, resource allocation, routing, scheduling and
Quality of Service
- Energy-efficient computing and networking
- Computer architectures and operating systems
- Network architectures, protocols and congestion control
- Storage systems and datacenters


Evaluation techniques, and algorithms for:

- Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
- Blockchains and crypto-currency
- Cyber-physical systems, Internet of Things, fog computing
- Data centers, content delivery, cloud computing and virtualization
- Internet and web services
- Network economics and markets
- Security systems
- Social networks, multimedia systems and smart grid
- Wireless, ad-hoc and cellular networks


** IMPORTANT DATES **
Abstract submission: May 10th, 2020
Full paper submission: May 17th, 2020
Notification to authors: July 19th, 2020


** PAPER SUBMISSION **
Performance 2020 accepts submissions in two categories:
- Regular papers: 12 pages
- Short papers: 6 pages

Regular papers should not exceed 12 pages double-column and
single-spaced including figures, tables and references in standard ACM
format. Short papers are limited to 6 pages. In addition (both for
regular and short paper submissions), a 2-page appendix is permitted,
which is not included in the page-count. Papers must be submitted
electronically in printable pdf form. Templates for the standard ACM
format can be found at
https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template. Both the strict
and alternate styles are acceptable for submission. No changes to
margins, spacing or font sizes are allowed from those specified by the
style files. Papers violating the formatting guidelines will be
returned without review.

Authors of rejected Sigmetrics 2020 papers are invited to submit a
revised version of their paper, which would then be reviewed again as
new by at least one of its Sigmetrics reviewers to aid consistency.
The authors are allowed to include a response to the Sigmetrics
reviews in a clearly-marked appendix that will not count against the
page limit.

Papers can be submitted at
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=performance2020

All submissions will be reviewed using a double-blind review process.
The identity of authors and referees will not be revealed to each
other. To ensure double-blind reviewing, authors names and
affiliations should not appear in the paper and bibliographic
references should be made in such a way as to preserve author
anonymity.

Warning: It is ACM policy not to allow double submissions, where the
same paper is submitted to more than one conference/journal
concurrently. Any double submissions detected will be rejected
immediately from all conferences/journals involved.

Accepted short papers (limited to 6 pages ) and abstracts of accepted
regular papers will be published in a special issue of the ACM
Performance Evaluation Review (PER).


** SPECIAL ISSUES **
Regular papers will be published in a special issue of the Elsevier
journal Performance Evaluation (PEVA).

Alternatively, authors may opt-out in favor of submission to other
special issues in journals related to Performance Evaluation and
Operations Research.

Eligible papers are:
- extensions of short-papers and
- long papers that opt-out of publication in Performance Evaluation (PEVA).


Authors need to make sure that their work falls within the scope of
the respective journal. All the papers will be reviewed according to
the standards of the journal.

Special Issues will appear in:

1. ACM Transactions on Modeling and Performance Evaluation of
Computing Systems (TOMPECS).

The editors will invite the authors of a few papers (short or long) to
submit a full-length manuscript. Prepare your manuscript using the
same manuscript preparation guidelines as the ones for regular TOMPECS
submissions.

2. Queueing Systems: Theory and Applications (QUESTA)

All conference papers (short and long papers that opt-out of PEVA) may
submit to the SI. The conference version of the paper published in
PER should be no more than 6 pages. Accepted full papers that opt out
of PEVA will have to be shortened by the authors if they wish to have
their paper submitted to Queueing Systems. Prepare your manuscript
using the same manuscript preparation guidelines as the ones for
regular QUESTA submissions.

3. Stochastic Systems

The conference version of the paper published in PER should be no more
than 6 pages. Accepted full papers that opt out of PEVA will have to
be shortened by the authors if they wish to have their paper submitted
to Stochastic Systems. Prepare your manuscript using the same
manuscript preparation guidelines as the ones for regular stochastic
systems submissions.
