2017 International Symposium on Performance Evaluation of Computer and Telecommunication Systems
July 9-12, 2017, Seattle, WA, USA

This annual international conference is a scientific forum for professionals and scientists involved in performance evaluation of computer and telecommunication systems. Performance evaluation of computer systems and networks has progressed rapidly in the past decade and has begun to approach maturity. Significant progress has been made in analytic modeling, simulation, and measurement approaches for performance evaluation of computer and telecommunication systems.

Sponsor The Society for Modeling and Simulation International
