    1st Workshop on Education and Practice of Performance Engineering

    April 23, 2017




    Abstract Submission deadline: January 3, 2017
    Submission deadline: January 10, 2017
    Notification of acceptance: February 10, 2017
    Camera-ready submission: February 19, 2017
    Workshop date: April 23, 2017



    The goal of the Workshop on Education and Practice of Performance Engineering is to bring together University researchers and Industry Performance Engineers to share education and practice experiences. We are interested in creating opportunities to share
    experiences between researchers that are actively teaching performance engineering and of Performance Engineers that are applying Performance Engineering techniques in industry.

    Topics of interest to the include, but are not limited to:
    - Education and or Practice of Performance in the data center, cloud, and Internet of Things
    - Education and or Practice of Performance methods in software development
    - Education and or Practice of Model-driven performance engineering
    - Education and or Practice of Performance modeling and prediction
    - Education and or Practice of Performance measurement and experimental analysis
    - Education and or Practice of Benchmarks (workloads, scenarios, and implementations)
    - Education and or Practice of Run-time performance and capacity management
    - Education and or Practice of Performance in cloud, virtualized, and multi-core systems
    - Education and or Practice of Performance-driven resource and power management - Education and or Practice of Performance of big data systems
    - Education and or Practice of Performance modeling and evaluation in other domains
    - Education and or Practice of Performance requirements specification
    - Education and or Practice of Performance testing and validation
    - Education and or Practice of Relationship between performance engineering and architecture
    - Education and or Practice of All other topics related to performance engineering



    A variety of contribution styles for papers are solicited including: two-page abstracts, presentation, basic and applied research papers for novel scientific insights, industrial and experience papers reporting on education and or practice of the
    application of 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 need to be uploaded to ICPE’s easychair installation at https://easychair.org/confereces/?conf=weppe-2017

    At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register at workshop at the full rate, attend the workshop 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.

    3rd Workshop on Challenges in Performance Methods for Software Development

    April 22, 2017


    Contact: André B. Bondi <andrebbondi@gmail.com>



    Abstract submission deadline: January 3, 2017
    Paper submission deadline: January 10, 2017
    Notification of acceptance: February 3, 2017
    Camera-ready submission (hard-deadline): February 17, 2017
    Workshop date: April 22, 2017



    New challenges to assuring software performance arise as new software development methods emerge. In addition to using middleware and database platforms, new applications may be implemented using environments such as Software as a Service (SaaS) and
    Service-Oriented Architectures. The performance characteristics of these services will inevitably influence the performance and scalability of the applications that use them. The use of DevOps means that new components will be introduced to existing
    systems while they are running. The new components must allow the performance existing components to continue to be met.

    In this third edition of WOSP-C, we will explore the performance implications of this evolution in architecture and development and their impact on the inclusion and development of performance. We seek to do this by including research and experience
    papers, vision papers describing new initiatives and ideas, and discussion sessions. Papers describing new projects and approaches are particularly welcome. As implied by the title, the workshop focus is on methods usable anywhere across the life cycle,
    from requirements to design, testing and evolution of the product. The discussions will attempt to map the future of the field. They may occur in breakout sessions related to topics chosen by the participants. The discussions will be moderated and
    summaries posted on line for future reference. This is in keeping with the spirit of the first Workshop on Software and Performance, WOSP98, which successfully identified the issues that were current at the time. The acronym WOSP-C reflects this. There
    will be sessions which combine papers on research/experience/vision with substantial discussion on issues raised by the papers or the attendees. At least a third of the time will be devoted to discussion on identifying the key problems and the most
    fruitful lines of future research.

    The workshop proceedings will be published by ACM as part of the ICPE 2017 proceedings in the ACM digital library.



    These topics are deliberately broad. Some of them arose in the discussions at WOSP-C 2016:
    - New ideas, most of all…
    - Model-driven engineering concepts for all kinds of applications, from embedded to SOA and SaaS.
    - The business case for performance methods, both in startups and in larger organizations.
    - Easing the effort of applying performance methods
    - Adding performance issues to software development tools
    - Performance issues in architecture and component engineering
    - Challenges posed by rapid development methods
    - Maximizing the value (for design improvement) of performance measurements and tests
    - Methods for deriving and exploiting performance models of applications
    - Performance challenges and solutions for cloud-based systems and for migrating to the cloud.
    - The relationship between performance testing, performance models, and performance requirements, including, but not limited to, how they relate to DevOps.
    - Performance methods for tighter integration of development and operation (DevOps)
    - Collection of representative performance and workload data in distributed and cloud environments
    - Performance engineering for dynamic architectures
    - Performance issues with microservice architectures
