Call For Papers

The goal of this annual conference is to provide a forum for professionals and researchers to discuss and disseminate the most promising contributions on performance evaluation of computer and telecommunication systems. Papers describing results of theoretic and/or practical significance are solicited. Experimental, modeling, analysis, and simulation studies as well as testbed deployment, field trials and experiences gained are all in the scope of the conference. Work presenting novel performance evaluation methods or providing insights on design and runtime tradeoffs are particularly encouraged.

Papers and tutorials are solicited in (but not limited to) the following subjects of interest:

Instructions for authors

Current templates supplied by IEEE must be used. Submissions should not exceed 8 two-column, 8.5×11" pages (including figures, tables, and references) in 10 point fonts. Please include 5-10 keywords, complete postal and e-mail address, and fax and phone numbers of the corresponding author. If you have difficulties with electronic submission, please contact Technical Program Co-Chairs or the Local Arrangement Chair.

Proposals for tutorials (max 2 hours) should be sent to the Tutorial Chair. Tutorial abstracts along with keynote speeches' abstracts will be included in the proceedings of the conference.
Best Paper Awards

All accepted papers will be evaluated for a best paper award based on originality and technical contribution by an external commission.
Call for Tutorial Proposals

SPECTS 2020 is soliciting proposals for tutorials (max 2 hours) to be held in conjunction with the conference. Tutorials should address established as well as new emerging research topics and practical applications in the area of performance evaluation of computer and telecommunication systems. Tutorials should present a comprehensive overview of the state of the art and outline open research and technical challenges.

A tutorial proposal should contain the following information:

Tutorial title
Names, titles, affiliations and contact details of the presenters
Preferred duration
Extended abstract
Short description of the intended audience and prerequisite knowledge of the attendees (if any)
Short bio of the presenters

The extended abstracts of the tutorials will be included in the conference proceedings. Tutorial proposals should be submitted for review in a single PDF file — not exceeding five pages — mailed to the tutorial chair.
