This regular publication will provide you with information on latest developments, news and announcements relevant to the benchmarking and quantitative system evaluation communities.
We are delighted to present to you the 3rd issue of the SPEC Research Group Newsletter. This regular publication provides information on latest developments, news and announcements relevant to the benchmarking and quantitative system evaluation communities. Our newsletter is part of our mission to foster the exchange of knowledge and experiences between industry and academia in the field of quantitative system evaluation and analysis.
The past eight months have been very intense and exciting for the SPEC RG. To the major activities and milestones reached, we include: presenting the SPEC Distinguished Dissertation Award to Dr. Anshul Gandhi; further expansion of the CUP (Cloud Usage Patterns) formalism introduced by the Cloud Working Group; the HInjector framework designed and implemented by the IDS Working Group; publishing the SPA tool (Storage Performance Analyzer).
We have been actively working on preparation, planning and organization of the ICPE 2014 and ICPE 2015 conferences. We hope that the vivid exchange of ideas during the upcoming ICPE 2014 will be a great motivation for the next year of scientific and engineering work.
This issue of the Newsletter is short but we hope that you will enjoy reading it. We welcome and encourage your contributions for articles and suggestions for future coverage.
