32nd International Symposium on Computer Performance,
Modeling, Measurements and Evaluation
October 7-9, 2014
CALL FOR PAPERS
The IFIP PERFORMANCE 2014 conference solicits research papers on the design of algorithms, mathematical modeling, simulation and measurement techniques for computer systems or communication networks. Topics of interest include the following.
Methodologically-oriented design and evaluation studies of:
Network architectures, protocols and algorithms.
Wireless, mobile, ad-hoc, sensor and cellular networks.
Data centers, cloud computing and virtualization.
Computer architectures, memory systems and storage systems.
Energy-efficient computing and networking.
Security systems, Internet servers, multimedia systems and web services.
Social networks, smart grid and sensing infrastructure.
Operating systems, file systems and databases.
Methodologies, evaluation techniques, and algorithms for:
Capacity planning, resource allocation, routing, scheduling and Quality of Service.
System measurement and monitoring.
Stochastic analysis, statistical analysis and simulation.
Large scale data collection, management and processing.
There are TWO possible paper formats (detailed submission instructions will appear soon at this conference website):
REGULAR PAPERS: should not exceed 22 double-spaced pages including figures, tables and references. Additional details may be included in a clearly marked appendix of up to 8 pages, which, however, will be read at the discretion of the TPC.
SHORT PAPERS: should not exceed 3 double-column pages including figures, tables and references. SHORT PAPERS can either summarize very recent research results (including work in progress) or discuss results that do not require a full paper submission. A paper submitted as a REGULAR paper which is then rejected will not be considered for acceptance as a SHORT paper.
Both the REGULAR and SHORT papers, if accepted, will be presented in the conference and published in the proceedings of the conference:
The authors of a REGULAR paper will be given the choice to have their paper published either in a special issue of Performance Evaluation (PEVA) or in a special issue of the ACM Performance Evaluation Review (PER).
SHORT papers will appear in the special issue of PER.
These special issues of PEVA and PER will both appear in time for the conference.
Authors of accepted papers that will be published in the ACM PER grant ACM permission to publish them in print and digital formats. Note that there are no copyright issues with PER, and thus authors retain the copyright of their work with complete freedom to submit their work elsewhere.
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 blind reviewing, authors' names and affiliations should not appear in the paper; bibliographic references should be made in such a way as to preserve author anonymity.
Papers will be selected on the basis of their originality, technical standards, relevance and clarity. Submissions must be made electronically, details will be provided in the conference website.
Abstract submission: Monday, March 31, 2014 (hard deadline)
Regular Paper submission: Monday, April 7, 2014 (hard deadline)
