IFIP Performance 2015 : The 33rd International Symposium on Computer Performance, Modeling, Measurements and Evaluation 2015
Call For Papers
FIP WG 7.3 PERFORMANCE 2015
32nd International Symposium on Computer Performance, Modeling,
Measurements and Evaluation
October 19-21, 2015
FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS
The IFIP PERFORMANCE 2015 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
are available on the conference website):
1 - 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.
2 - 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:
1 - 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).
2 - SHORT papers will appear in the special issue of PER.
These special issues of PEVA and PER will both appear in time for the
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
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: Friday, April 10, 2015 (hard deadline)
Regular & Short Paper submission: Friday, April 17, 2015 (hard deadline)
