    The organizing committee is working hard to put together a great ICPE conference, and to welcome you in Rennes. At this point, however, due
    to the uncertainty around the COVID pandemic, we cannot guarantee this
    is possible. We also recognize the challenges some of our community
    members might face in travelling. Therefore, currently, the conference
    model is "on-site with remote participation facilities" - meaning,
    ICPE 2021's committee is looking forward to a live event, but will
    provide the required infrastructure for online presence.



    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.

    This year, we particularly encourage researchers to submit their work on
    the performance engineering of ‘modern’ application domains as well, such as deep learning, blockchain, microservices, Big Data, DevOps and/or Autonomous Systems.

    Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

    Performance modeling of software:
    * Languages and ontologies
    * Methods and tools
    * Relationship/integration/tradeoffs with other QoS attributes
    * Analytical, simulation and statistical modeling methodologies
    * Machine learning and neural networks
    * Model validation and calibration techniques
    * Automatic model extraction
    * Performance modeling and analysis tools

    Performance and software development processes/paradigms:
    * Software performance testing
    * Software performance (anti-)patterns
    * Software/performance tool interoperability (models and data interchange formats)
    * Performance-oriented design, implementation and configuration management
    * Software Performance Engineering and Model-Driven Development
    * Gathering, interpreting and exploiting software performance annotations and data
    * System sizing and capacity planning techniques
    * (Model-driven) Performance requirements engineering
    * Relationship between performance and architecture
    * Performance and agile methods
    * Performance in Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA)
    * Software and system scalability and its impact on performance

    Performance measurement, monitoring and analysis:
    * Application tracing and profiling
    * Workload characterization techniques
    * Experimental design
    * Tools and techniques for performance testing, measurement, profiling and tuning,
    * and analysis of the resulting data

    * Performance metrics and benchmark suites
    * Benchmarking methodologies
    * Development of parameterizable, flexible benchmarks
    * Benchmark workloads and scenarios
    * Use of benchmarks in industry and academia

    Run-time performance management and adaptation
    * Machine learning and runtime performance decisions
    * Context modeling and analysis
    * Runtime model estimation
    * Use of models at run-time
    * Online performance prediction
    * Autonomic resource management
    * Utility-based optimization
    * Capacity management

    Power and performance, energy efficiency
    * Power consumption models and management techniques
    * Tradeoffs between performance and energy efficiency
    * Performance-driven resource and power management

    All other topics related to performance of software and systems.



    Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished papers that are not
    being considered in another forum. A variety of contribution styles for
    papers is solicited including: basic and applied research papers for
    novel scientific insights, industrial and experience papers reporting on applying performance engineering or benchmarks in practice, and work-in-progress papers for ongoing innovative work. Different
    acceptance criteria apply based on the expected content of the
    individual contribution types.

    Authors will be requested to self-classify their papers according to
    the provided topic areas when submitting their papers.

    Submissions to all tracks need to be uploaded to ICPE's submission
    system and conform to the ACM submission format.

    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 2021 conference proceedings that
    will be published by ACM and included in the ACM Digital Library.

    Authors of accepted research papers are invited to submit an artifact to
    the ACM/SPEC ICPE 2021 Artifact Track.

    The highest quality papers, judged by multiple relevant factors, will be recognized with an award. Authors of selected papers will be invited to
    submit an extended version of their work to a journal.

    AUTHORS TAKE NOTE: The official publication date is the date the
    proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may
    be up to two weeks prior to the first day of your conference. The
    official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings
    related to published work. (For those rare conferences whose proceedings
    are published in the ACM Digital Library after the conference is over,
    the official publication date remains the first day of the conference.)
