Call-for-Contributions: ACM/SPEC ICPE 2021

The 12th ACM/SPEC International Conference on Performance Engineering will be held in Rennes, France on April 19-23, 2021. The main topic for this year is performance engineering of ‘modern’ application domains such as deep learning, blockchain, microservices, Big Data, DevOps and/or Autonomous Systems.

The International Conference on Performance Engineering (ICPE) is the leading international forum for presenting and discussing novel ideas, innovations, trends and experiences in the field of performance engineering. Modern systems, such as big data and machine learning environments,  data centers and cloud infrastructures, social networks, peer-to-peer, mobile and wireless systems, cyber-physical systems, the Internet of Things or more traditional ones such as web-based or real-time systems, rely increasingly on distributed and dynamic architectures and pose a challenge to their end-to-end performance management.

ICPE brings together researchers and practitioners to 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 is both on classical metrics such as response time, throughput, resource utilization, and (energy) efficiency, as well as on the relationship of such metrics to other system properties including but not limited to scalability, elasticity, availability, reliability, cost, sustainability, security and privacy. The systems of interest include any type of computing or software system, such as (but not limited to) desktop systems, cloud systems, web-based systems, embedded systems, distributed systems and cyber-physical systems. The handling of performance issues at all stages of software and system life cycles is also of interest.

The call for contributions along with more details are to be found on the ICPE 2021 website: https://icpe2021.spec.org/.
