QEST2014

International Conference on Quantitative Evaluation of SysTems
Florence, September 8th-11th 2014
www.qest.org/qest2014

Co-located with FORMATS, SAFECOMP, EPEW, FMICS
(see www.florence2014.org)


Scope and Topics

The International Conference on Quantitative Evaluation of SysTems (QEST) is the leading forum on evaluation and verification of computer systems and networks, through stochastic models and measurements. Performance metrics of interest include response time, reliability, availability, safety, security, survivability, correctness, timeliness, and efficiency. Areas of interest include modeling formalisms and methodologies, measurements, analytical and numerical evaluation, simulation and verification, and theory of probabilistic, concurrent and non-deterministic behavior. Also of interest are case studies showing the role of quantitative evaluation in the design of systems including computer architectures, distributed and fault tolerant systems, communication systems, embedded systems, web-based systems, and safety-critical systems.


Important Dates

Abstract submission: 7 March 2014
Paper and tool submission: 14 March 2014
Author feedback/rebuttal period: 25-29 April 2014
Author notification: 9 May 2014
Final version due: 6 June 2014


Call for Papers

All submitted papers will be thoroughly judged by at least three reviewers on the basis of their originality, technical quality, scientific or practical contribution to the state of the art, methodology, clarity, and adequacy of references.
QEST considers five types of papers with additional reviewing criteria:
1. Theoretical: advance our understanding, apply to non-trivial problems and be mathematically rigorous.
2. Methodological and technical: describe situations that require the development and proposal of new analysis processes and techniques.
3. Application: describes a novel application, and compares with previous results.
4. Tools: should motivate the development of the new tools and the formalisms they support, with a focus on the software architecture and practical capabilities.
5. Tool demonstration: describe a relevant tool, as well as its features, evaluation, or any other information that may demonstrate the merits of the tool.

Submissions must be prepared in LaTeX, following Springer's LNCS guidelines. Submitted papers should not exceed 16 pages (4 pages for tool demonstrations). Papers must be unpublished and not be submitted for publication elsewhere.

The QEST 2014 proceedings will be published by Springer in the LNCS Series and indexed by ISI Web of Science, Scopus, ACM Digital Library, dblp, Google Scholar.
