QAPL 2016 : Fourteenth International Workshop on Quantitative Aspects of Programming Languages and Systems
Call For Papers
The scope of the QAPL workshop is to discuss new developments on the quantitative evaluation of systems, with an emphasis on quantitative aspects of computation, broadly construed.
We solicit papers on theory, engineering methodologies, tools, case studies, and experience reports where quantitative properties such as bandwidth, cost, energy, memory, performance, probability, reliability, security, and time are first-class citizens.
Topics of interest include (but are by no means not limited to):
The design of probabilistic, deterministic, hybrid, real-time, and quantum languages, and the definition of their semantical models.
Quantitative analysis techniques such as simulation, numerical solution, symbolic approaches, optimisation methods.
Specification of quantitative properties such as probabilistic model checking and reward structures.
Methodologies and frameworks for the engineering of systems based on quantitative information, such as reliability engineering and software performance engineering.
Software tools to support the quantitative analysis of systems.
Case studies and applications, for instance about coordination models, cyber-physical systems, security, self-adaptive systems, smart grids, systems of systems as well as natural/physical domains such as chemistry and systems biology.
In order to encourage participation and discussion, this workshop solicits two types of submissions - regular papers and presentations:
Regular paper submissions must be original work, and must not have been previously published, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere. Regular paper submission must not exceed 12 pages, possibly followed by a clearly marked appendix which will be removed for the proceedings and contains technical material for the reviewers.
Presentation reports concern recent or ongoing work on relevant topics and ideas, for timely discussion and feedback at the workshop. There is no restriction as for previous/future publication of the contents of a presentation. Typically, a presentation is based on a paper which recently appeared (or which is going to appear) in the proceedings of another recognized conference, or which has not yet been submitted. The (extended) abstract of presentation submissions should not exceed 4 pages.
All submissions must be in PDF format and use the EPTCS style files. Submissions can be made through the EasyChair website.
Accepted regular papers will be published in the Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science (EPTCS). Please use the EPTCS latex style for both your preliminary submission and the camera ready paper. Publication of a selection of the papers in a special issue of a journal is under consideration.
For regular papers:
Submission: 8 January 2016
Notification: 2 February 2016
Final version (ETAPS proceedings): 9 February 2016
Final version (EPTCS proceedings): TBA
For presentation reports:
Submission: 30 January 2016
Notification: 6 February 2016
