Call For Papers
The goal of the International Conference on Performance Engineering (ICPE) is to integrate theory and practice in the field of   performance engineering by providing a forum for sharing ideas and experiences between industry and academia. Nowadays, complex systems of all types, like Web-based systems, data centers and cloud infrastructures, social networks, peer-to-peer, mobile and wireless systems, cyber-physical systems, the Internet of Things, real-time and embedded systems, have increasingly distributed and dynamic system architectures that provide high flexibility, however, also increase the complexity of managing end-to-end application performance. ICPE brings together researchers and industry practitioners to share and present their experiences, discuss challenges, and report state-of-the-art and in-progress research on performance engineering of software and systems, including performance measurement, modeling, benchmark design, and run-time performance management. The focus of ICPE is both on classical metrics such as response time, throughput, resource utilization, and (energy) efficiency, as well as on the relationship to other system properties including but not limited to scalability, elasticity, availability, reliability, and security.

A variety of contribution styles is solicited. ICPE 2018 features the following tracks:

    Research Papers Track
    Industry and Experience Track
    Artifact Evaluation Track
    Posters and Demonstrations
    Tutorials Track
    Workshops Track
    Work in Progress and Vision Track
    Doctoral Symposium

See the submission information for each track for further details.

This year's main theme is "continuous performance assurance in agile delivery"
