Andrea Rosa
                                       ICPE 2017
8th ACM/SPEC International Conference on Performance Engineering

       Sponsored by ACM SIGMETRICS, SIGSOFT, and SPEC RG

                                    L'Aquila, Italy
                                 April 22-26, 2017




Paper Submission Deadline:
Nov 25, 2016

Dec 15, 2016



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 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, and security.



The goal of the work-in-progress and vision track is two-fold:

- To provide the opportunity for attendees to present and discuss preliminary results from their latest work obtaining some early feedback from the community.
- To provide the opportunity to present position papers on emerging hot topics in the field of performance engineering motivating new research directions.

Work-in-progress papers present promising preliminary results that may not have been fully validated yet. Although full validation is not required, the work presented should be advanced enough to allow attendees to appreciate its scope and significance.

Vision papers present emerging research challenges and long-term research directions on topics relevant to the performance engineering community. Submissions should clearly present the research questions and their rationale sketching possible approaches to their resolution. The goal of such papers is to motivate new research and generate debate and discussions on the latest challenges in the field of performance engineering.

All contributions must be original, not published, accepted or submitted for publication elsewhere. Accepted papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings and included in the ACM Digital Library.

More information can be found at



Submissions are made via Easychair ( and should be clearly marked in the text as "Work-In-Progress Paper" or "Vision Paper", respectively. Submissions must be in the standard ACM format for conference proceedings. Papers should not exceed 4 pages double column including figures and tables.

At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register at the full rate, attend the conference and present the paper. Presented papers will be published in the ICPE 2017 conference proceedings that will be published by ACM and included in the ACM Digital Library. Authors are required to adhere to the ACM Policy and Procedures on Plagiarism as well as to the ACM Policy on Prior Publication and Simultaneous Submissions.
