TPCTC 2010 : TPC Technology Conference on Performance Evaluation and Benchmarking
Conference Series : TPC Technology Conference
Call For Papers
Second TPC Technology Conference on Performance Evaluation and Benchmarking
Co-located with VLDB 2010, September 17, 2010, Singapore
The Transaction Processing Performance Council (TPC) is a non-profit organization established in August 1988. Over two decades, it has shaped the landscape of modern transaction processing and database benchmarks. Now, the world is in the midst of an extraordinary information explosion. Enterprise data and user generated data levels continue to grow exponentially. This has challenged researchers and industry experts to develop innovative techniques to evaluate and benchmark software and hardware technologies.
As a result, the TPC is conducting its second Technology Conference (TPCTC 2010) in conjunction with the 36th International Conference on Very Large Data Bases (VLDB 2010). With this conference, the TPC encourages researchers and industry experts to submit novel ideas and methodologies in performance evaluation, measurement, and characterization in the following areas:
•Complex event processing
•Disaster tolerance and recovery
•Energy and space efficiency
•High speed data generation
•Unstructured data management
•Software management and maintenance
•Very large memory systems
•Lessons learnt in using TPC workload
•Enhancements to TPC workloads
Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished papers that are not currently under review for any other conference or journal. We also encourage the submission of extended abstracts, position statement papers and lessons learned in practice. The length of a paper should not exceed 16 pages. Papers should follow the LNBIP format, see http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-7-487211-0 for details. The title page must contain a short abstract. A template in Microsoft Word format can be downloaded from http://www.springer.com/cda/content/document/cda_downloaddocument/word.zip?SGWID=0-0-45-72919-0.
All papers should be submitted electronically in Adobe PDF format to the review website at https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/tpctc2010/.
