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.
ICPE enhances the experience of attending researchers and industry practitioners through a Tutorial Track led by renowned scientists and practitioners in the fields of relevance for the ICPE community. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to,
performance measurement, performance modeling, benchmarking, and run-time performance management of complex systems of all types.
Proposals are welcomed for tutorials at introductory, intermediate, and advanced skill-levels, that either span a full day (6 hours, two breaks included), or a half-day (3 hours, one break included).
The tutorial proposal (maximum 5 pages) should describe concisely the content, importance and timeliness of the tutorial. It should include the following information:
- 150 to 200-word abstract describing the tutorial, that is suitable for inclusion on the conference website;
- Contact information (name, e-mail, affiliation) and a brief biography (up to 200 words) of the presenter(s);
- Proposed duration (half-day (3 hours) or full-day (6 hours));
- Intended audience skill level (beginner, intermediate, advanced) and any prerequisite knowledge required;
- Outline of the tutorial (overall goal and concrete objectives, teaching method and structure);
- The link between the tutorial and the ICPE topics of interest (a sentence or paragraph);
- If appropriate, a description of past versions of the tutorial should be provided. It should be indicated where the tutorial has been given (venue, date, number of attendees) and how it will be modified for ICPE 2017.
Authors of accepted tutorial proposals are expected to prepare a set of slides to be distributed to participants, including a bibliography pertinent to the tutorial. The camera-ready set of slides should be submitted as a PDF file with two slides per
Proposers of accepted tutorials will be given the opportunity to also submit a tutorial paper, which will appear in the conference proceedings. The content of a tutorial paper must be on the material covered by the tutorial and must not exceed 4 pages in
size using the ACM format. Further instructions on the tutorial paper will follow.
