Call For Papers

== VALUETOOLS 2015 ==
9th International Conference on
Performance Evaluation Methodologies and Tools

December 14-16, 2015
Berlin, Germany

ValueTools 2015 focuses on methodologies and practices in modelling, performance evaluation and optimization of complex systems. It brings together researchers from different communities including Computer Science, Networks and Telecommunications, Operations Research, Optimization, Control Theory and Manufacturing. ValueTools 2015 solicits previously unpublished contributions that propose new performance evaluation methodologies and new tools.

ValueTools 2015 invites the following types of contributions:
- Regular papers (8 pages ACM style)
- Tool papers & presentations (6 pages ACM style)
- Posters and Short Papers (4 pages ACM style)
- Fast Abstracts (2 pages ACM style)

Regular papers are ideal for presenting new evaluation methodologies and theoretical contributions. Tool papers should describe new tools or substantial improvements to existing tools. Fast abstracts are intended to give an opportunity to present work in progress, experience reports, wild ideas, or controversial opinions intended to promote discussion.

Regular papers, tool papers, and short papers presented at the conference will be submitted to the ACM Digital Library. Additionally, /a special issue in Performance Evaluation is planned/. Fast Abstracts will be published as a Technical Report.

== Deadlines ==

- Paper Submission Deadline: 14 September 2015
- Fast Abstract Submissions: 5 October 2015
- Notification of Acceptance: 15 October 2015
- Camera-Ready Deadline: 26 October 2015

== Conference topics ==

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Application Areas
- Communication & computer networks
- Distributed systems
- Cloud computing systems
- Machine Learning
- Large-scale performance analysis
- Interdisciplinary problems
- Manufacturing systems & supply chains
- Transportation systems

- Stochastic models
- Model-checking
- Process algebras
- Queues and queueing-networks
- Discrete-event simulation
- Mean-field techniques
- Fluid approximations
- Game theory

Submissions will be reviewed anonymously by at least three expert reviewers and papers will be judged based on originality, correctness, clarity and relevance. Submitted papers must be original work, and may not be under consideration for another conference or journal.

Paper submission implies agreement that at least one author will attend the conference and present the paper if accepted.
