Call For Papers

QEST 2016
International Conference on Quantitative Evaluation of Systems

Quebec City, August 23-25 2016

Co-located with CONCUR 2016


QEST is the leading forum on quantitative evaluation and verification of
computer systems and networks. Areas of interest include quantitative
specification methods, stochastic models, and metrics for performance,
reliability, safety, correctness, and security. QEST is interested in
both theoretical and experimental research. QEST welcomes a diversity of
modeling formalisms, programming languages and methodologies that
incorporate quantitative aspects such as probabilities, approximations
and other quantitative aspects. Papers may advance empirical,
simulation and analytic methods. Of particular interest are case
studies that highlight the role of quantitative specification, modeling
and evaluation in the design of systems. Systems of interest include
computer hardware and software architectures, communication systems,
cyberphysical systems, infrastructural systems, and biological systems.
Papers that describe novel tools to support the practical application of
research results in all of the above areas are also welcome.

PEVA SPECIAL ISSUE: A selection of the best papers presented at QEST
2016 will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper for a
Special Issue that will appear in the journal Performance Evaluation.


Abstract submission: 7 March 2016
Paper and tool submission: 14 March 2016
Author notification: 10 May 2016
Final version due: 3 June 2016


Submissions describing original research in theory, methodology and
techniques, application, or tools are invited. In addition, Tool
Demonstration may be submitted as short 4 page papers. Submitted papers
will be evaluated by at least three reviewers on the basis of
originality, technical quality, scientific or practical contribution to
the state of the art, methodology, clarity, and adequacy of references.

Submissions must be in English, Springer LNCS format. Submitted papers
should not exceed 16 pages (4 pages for tool demonstrations).
Additional material for the aid of the reviewers (e.g., proofs) may be
included in an appendix. Papers must be unpublished and not be submitted
for publication elsewhere. Papers should be submitted electronically
using EasyChair online submission system:

All accepted papers (including tool demonstrations) must be presented at
the conference by one of the authors. The QEST 2016 proceedings will be
published by Springer in the LNCS Series (
