    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.

    This year's main theme is cost-effective performance engineering, where cost has a wide interpretation including measures such as effort and energy in addition to traditional performance measures.

    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
    * Model validation and calibration techniques
    * Automatic model extraction
    * Performance modeling and analysis tools

    Performance and software development processes/paradigms
    * Software performance patterns and 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
    * Collaboration of development and operation (DevOps) for performance
    * Performance and agile methods
    * Performance in Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA)
    * Performance of micro-service architectures and containers

    Performance measurement, monitoring and analysis
    * Performance measurement and monitoring techniques
    * Analysis of measured application performance data
    * Application tracing and profiling
    * Workload characterization techniques

    * Tools for performance testing, measurement, profiling and tuning

    * 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
    * Use of models at run-time

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

    Performance modeling and evaluation in different environments and application domains
    * Web-based systems, e-business, Web services
    * Big data systems, data analytics systems, and other data analysis systems
    * Internet of Things
    * Social networks
    * Cyber-physical systems
    * Industrial Internet (Industry 4.0)
    * Virtualization and cloud computing
    * Autonomous/adaptive systems
    * Transaction-oriented systems
    * Communication networks
    * Parallel and distributed systems
    * Embedded systems
    * Multi-core systems
    * Cluster and grid computing environments
    * High performance computing
    * Event-based systems
    * Real-time and multimedia systems
    * Peer-to-peer, mobile and wireless systems

    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 are 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/vision papers for ongoing but yet interesting 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
    topic and contribution style when submitting their papers.

    Submissions to all tracks need to be uploaded to ICPE's submission system
    and conform to the ACM submission format. For detailed submission instructions, please visit: https://icpe2017.spec.org/submissions.html.

    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. After
    the conference, there will be a call for a special issue of 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.)
