Call for Papers
The PERFORMANCE 2007 conference solicits papers on the development and application of state-of-the-art analytic, simulation, and measurement-based performance evaluation techniques. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Performance-oriented design and evaluation of: communication networks, mobile and wireless systems, Internet servers and E-commerce systems, Web services, Web architectures, peer-to-peer systems, grid computing, computer architectures, database systems, operating systems, software systems, distributed systems, multimedia systems, file and I/O systems, memory systems, real-time systems, and fault-tolerant systems.

  • Techniques and algorithms: analytic modeling, performance optimization, queueing analysis, stochastic scheduling, model verification and validation, power analysis, hybrid models, experimental design, system or network measurement and monitoring, workload characterization, simulation, and statistical analysis.
In addition to its traditional focus, this year we encourage submissions focusing on implementation and experimental issues.
Submission Guidelines
Papers: Papers should not exceed 22 double-spaced pages including figures, tables and references. PERFORMANCE 2007 does not use a double-blind review process. Authors should include their last names and affiliations on their papers. A limited number of submitted papers will be accepted for a poster session. Submissions must be made electronically as Adobe PDF files through the Conference Web site. In case of problems, please send papers by email to papers.perf2007(at)tlc.polito.xyz.it (remove .xyz to obtain correct address). Papers will be selected on the basis of their originality, technical standards, relevance and clarity.

The conference has traditionally published accepted papers in a special issue of a journal rather than a conference proceedings. PERFORMANCE 2007 will continue this tradition. All accepted full papers will be published in a special issue of the Performance Evaluation Journal (Elsevier) and will be made available at the conference.

Tutorial sessions: Tutorial proposals, not exceeding 3 pages, have to include title, abstract, duration (1hr 30min or 3hrs), intended audience, assumed background of attendees, name, affiliation and a biographical sketch of the instructors. Proposals should be sent to the tutorials chair (tutorials.perf2007(at)tlc.polito.xyz.it, remove .xyz to obtain correct address).
