Fourth TPC Technology Conference on Performance Evaluation and Benchmarking
August 27, 2012 Istanbul, Turkey

collocated with VLDB12


The Transaction Processing Performance Council (TPC) is a non-profit organization established
in August 1988. Over two decades, it has shaped the landscape of modern transaction processing
and database benchmarks. Over the last couple of years many new areas of very large database
applications has emerged stressing the ability of today's hardware and software infrastructures
e.g. cloud computing, social media etc. Yet the industry is lacking standard ways to evaluate
different infrastructures. As a result, the TPC is conducting a third conference in conjunction
with VLDB11 to encourage researchers and industry experts to submit novel ideas and methodologies
in performance evaluation, measurement, and characterization in the following areas:

* Big Data analytics and infrastructure
* Database Appliances
* Cloud Computing
* In-memory databases
* Social media infrastructure
* Business intelligence
* Complex event processing
* Database optimizations
* Green computing
* Disaster tolerance and recovery
* Energy and space efficiency
* Hardware innovations
* Data Integration
* Hybrid workloads
* Virtualization
* Lessons learned in practice using TPC workloads
* Enhancements to TPC workloads

Accepted papers will be published on the TPC website, ACM DL and DBLP, and considered for
future TPC benchmark developments.

Very Large Data Base Endowment Inc. (VLDB Endowment) is a non-profit organization
incorporated in the United States for the sole purpose of promoting and exchanging
scholarly work in databases and related fields throughout the world. One of its
vehicles for achieving its objectives is the sponsorship and support of the annual
VLDB conference, a premier annual international forum for database researchers, vendors,
practitioners, application developers, and users. VLDB 2012, the 38th conference in the
series, will be held in Lyon, France. The conference will feature research talks,
tutorials, demonstrations, and workshops. It will cover current issues in database and
information systems research. Databases remain one of the technological cornerstones of
emerging applications of the twenty-first century. Further information is available at
