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.
Posters provide a forum for authors to present their work in an informal and interactive setting, allowing the authors and the interested participants to engage in discussions about the work presented. The contents of a poster should motivate the
relevance of the presented work to the performance engineering community, briefly summarize the goals and status of the work, and provide pointers to further information and related work.
Demonstrations provide an opportunity to showcase an existing tool or a research prototype, and would be also a welcome addition to an accepted research, work in progress, or industrial track paper. The authors are expected to prepare a 5-minute "teaser"
presentation and subsequently perform a live demonstration on their own equipment during a dedicated demonstration session.
Best Poster and a Best Demonstration prizes will be awarded in recognition of outstanding poster presentations or live demonstrations.
Both poster and demo submissions can be accompanied by a 2-page paper, clearly identifying the novelty of the ideas presented on a poster, or involved in building the showcased tool or a prototype. Demonstration papers may include uses cases or specific
results presented during the live demonstration. Both poster and demonstration papers will be reviewed and will appear in the conference proceedings.
The track is also open to submissions without an accompanying paper. In that case, a poster should be submitted as a 1-page document, while a demonstration should be submitted as a presentation slide-deck. Such submissions will be reviewed directly based
on the submitted material. However, lacking a standard paper form, such submissions will not appear in the conference proceedings.
Papers accompanying a poster or a demonstration must be in the standard ACM format for conference proceedings. The submissions should be clearly marked in the text as "Poster Paper" or "Demonstration Paper", and must not exceed 2 pages double column,
including figures and tables.
Poster-only submissions consist of a 1-page poster, in pdf file, with a format decided by the authors. Slides-only submissions consist of a presentation slide deck (e.g., ppt, odp, or pdf slides), with 5-10 slides.
At least one author of each accepted demo or presentation is required to register at the full rate, attend the conference and present the paper. Presented papers will appear 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.
