Session 14: Workshop Summaries

LT 2015: The Fourth International Workshop on Large-Scale Testing

Authors:

Zhen Ming (Jack) Jiang (York University)
Andreas Brunnert (fortiss GmbH)

Abstract:

Many large-scale software systems (e.g., e-commerce websites, telecommunication infrastructures and enterprise systems, etc.) must service hundreds, thousands or even millions of concurrent requests. Large-scale testing includes all different objectives and strategies of testing large-scale software systems using load. Large-scale testing is a challenging area and industry has invested large amount of resources into this. Yet, there are few academic research efforts devoted to large-scale testing. In this workshop, we intend to bring together industrial practitioners and researchers to establish and grow an academic research community around this important and practical research topic.

PABS 2015: 1st Workshop on Performance Analysis of Big Data Systems

Authors:

Rekha Singhal (Tata Innovation Lab)
Dheeraj Chahal (Tata Innovation Lab)

Abstract:

The first ACM international workshop on performance analysis of big data system is held in Austin, Texas, USA on February 1, 2015 and co-located with the ACM fifth International Conference on Performance Engineering (ICPE). The main objective of the workshop is to discuss the performance challenges imposed by big data systems and the different state-of-the-art solutions proposed to overcome these challenges. The workshop aims at providing a platform for scientific researchers, academicians and practitioners to discuss techniques, models, benchmarks, tools and experiences while dealing with performance issues in big data systems. We have constructed an exciting program of one big data expert keynote talk, one invited talk and two refereed papers that will give participants a full dose of emerging research.

WOSP-C'15: Workshop on Challenges in Performance Methods for Software Development

Authors:

Murray Woodside (Carleton University)

Abstract:

The first ACM Workshop on Challenges in Performance Methods for Software Development is held in Austin, Texas, on Jan. 31 2015, and is co-located with the 2015 ACM/SPEC International Conference on Performance Engineering (ICPE). Its purpose is to open up ne w avenues of research on methods for software developers to address performance problems. The software world is changing, and there are new challenges. As its name implies, the workshop includes the description of problems as well as solutions. The acronym WOSP-C also recalls the original discussion-heavy format of WOSP, the ACM International Workshop on S oftware and Performance, which has been a co-organizer of ICPE since 2010.
