Performance Conferences

Fifth ACM/SPEC International Conference on Performance Engineering (ICPE)

January 31 - February 4, 2015 in Austin, TX

The goal of the Fifth Joint ACM/SPEC International Conference on Performance Engineering is to provide a forum for ideas in performance engineering of software and systems, including performance measurement, modeling, benchmark design, and run-time performance management. WOSP/SIPEW is established as a joint meeting of the ACM Workshop on Software and Performance (WOSP) and the SPEC International Performance Evaluation Workshop (SIPEW).

The following is the stated goal of the WOSP workshop series:

The goal of software performance engineering (SPE) research is to build predictable, adequate performance into systems by considering quantitative behavior from a system's requirements stage through to its maintenance and enhancement. Because of increasing system complexity, rapidly evolving software technologies, short time to market, incomplete documentation, and inadequate quantitative models and tools, performance engineering often represents the most challenging aspect of system-building. Performance concerns transcend the software engineering and performance evaluation communities. The goal of this (and subsequent) workshops is to bring these communities together to begin to jointly address these difficult problems. Practitioners and researchers are invited to participate."

The proceedings are available through ACM www.acm.org

Sponsored by ACM SIGMETRICS, and in cooperation with ACM SIGSOFT, IFIP WG 6.3 and 7.3.
