You are cordially invited to submit to VALUETOOLS 2019 (, to be held in Palma de Mallorca, Spain from 12 to 15 March 2019 with Workshops on 12 March.

ValueTools 2019 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 ValueTools 2019 solicits previously unpublished contributions that propose new performance evaluation methodologies and new tools.

Valuetools 2019 solicits papers describing original and novel research on, but not limited to, the following topics:

* Stochastic processes & models
* Queues and queueing networks
* Asymptotic analysis (mean field, fluid approximations, large deviations)
* Discrete event simulation
* Software performance engineering
* Model-checking
* Process algebras, Petri Nets
* Optimization and Control Theory
* Game theory & algorithmic game theory
* Machine Learning and data analytics

Application Areas
* Distributed systems
* Large-scale systems
* Communication and computer systems
* Wireless networks (4G/5G, sensor, ad-hoc networks)
* Cloud and Edge/Fog computing systems
* Internet of Things
* Energy networks and Smart grids
* Social networks
* Networks security
* Biological systems
* Manufacturing systems & supply chains
* Transportation systems
