Call For Papers

17th International GI/ITG Conference on
“Measurement, Modelling and Evaluation of Computing Systems” and “Dependability and Fault-Tolerance”

MMB & DFT 2014

March 17 - ­ 19, 2014,
Bamberg (Germany)

Organized by GI/ITG Technical Committees on “Measurement, Modelling and Evaluation of Computing Systems (MMB)” and “Dependability and Fault-Tolerance (DFT)”

The technical committees MMB and DFT are the main fora in Germany covering all aspects of performance and dependability evaluation of systems including networks, computer architectures, distributed systems, workflow systems, software, fault-tolerant and secure systems. In 2014 both committees join forces in a common international conference MMB & DFT 2014. In addition to its scientific programme on performance and dependability evaluation techniques, it will comprise invited talks, tool presentations, state-of-the-art tutorials, and workshops focusing on hot topics.

Topics of MMB & DFT 2014 include:

Models and Methods
Quantitative evaluation techniques related to performance, dependability, security, survivability, real-time constraints, cost, energy-efficiency and combined aspects like performance-security tradeoffs
Fault-tolerant system and network design, dependable computing, redundancy techniques, fault modelling, fault injection
Testing, measuring, benchmarking and monitoring of systems and networks
Queueing systems, stochastic Petri nets, stochastic process algebras, Markov chains, non-Markovian models, fluid models, network calculus
Simulation techniques including rare events, parallel and distributed simulation
Combination of stochastic modeling and formal methods in engineering
Model checking and theorem proving in model-driven software development
Network economics, accounting, tariffing

Applications
Computer and software architectures, cloud computing, organic computing, pervasive and ubiquitous computing, adaptive and self-organizing systems, embedded systems, sensor systems
Fault-tolerant systems and networks, safety-oriented and security-oriented architectures, redundancy techniques
Communication networks including access, backbone and optical networks, high-speed switching, software-defined networking, mobile and wireless networks, sensor networks, car communication, traffic engineering, network planning and optimization
Peer-to-peer, overlay and information-centric networks, web-based systems, multimedia systems
Complex networks, social networks, power-law and scale-invariant systems, biochemical reaction systems
Green IT, energy-efficient systems, future smart energy networks
Workflow and logistic systems, traffic and transportation systems

Tools and Case Studies in all Areas of Application

Submission Formats

Full conference papers: Papers must be unpublished and must not be submitted for publication elsewhere. All papers will be thoroughly reviewed by at least three referees on the basis of their originality and their scientific and practical contribution to the state-of-the-art. Papers must be written in English and must not exceed 15 pages (LNCS style). The proceedings will be published in the Springer LNCS series. A best paper award will be provided.

Practical experience reports and industrial papers: Besides full papers, industrial papers and practical experience reports are also solicited. Reports should not exceed 8 pages (LNCS style). Accepted submissions will be published separately by University of Bamberg Press.

Tool descriptions: Special sessions will be arranged to present and demonstrate tools relevant to any topic covered by the Call for Papers. Accepted tool descriptions should not exceed four pages and will appear in the proceedings.

Tutorial proposals: Please send your tutorial proposals to the conference chair.
