Call for Papers (closed)


31st International Symposium on Computer Performance,
Modeling, Measurements and Evaluation


September 24-26, 2013
Vienna, Austria


The IFIP PERFORMANCE 2013 conference solicits research papers on the design of algorithms, mathematical modeling, simulation and measurement techniques for computer systems or communication networks. Topics of interest include the following.

Methodologically-oriented design and evaluation studies of:

Methodologies, evaluation techniques, and algorithms for:


There are TWO possible paper formats (detailed instructions appear at http://performance.cs.univie.ac.at/index.php?item=submission):

  1. REGULAR PAPERS: should not exceed 22 double-spaced pages including figures, tables and references. Additional details may be included in a clearly marked appendix of up to 8 pages, which, however, will be read at the discretion of the TPC.
  2. SHORT PAPERS: should not exceed 3 double-column pages including figures, tables and references. SHORT PAPERS can either summarize very recent research results (including work in progress) or discuss results that do not require a full paper submission. A paper submitted as a REGULAR paper which is then rejected will not be considered for acceptance as a SHORT paper.

Both the REGULAR and SHORT papers, if accepted, will be presented in the conference and published in the proceedings of the conference:

  1. The authors of a REGULAR paper will be given the choice to have their paper published either in a special issue of Performance Evaluation (PEVA) or in a special issue of the ACM Performance Evaluation Review (PER). Please note that authors of REGULAR papers who choose to have their paper published in PEVA must submit their camera ready copy by the earlier deadline (see below).
  2. SHORT papers will appear in the special issue of PER.

These special issues of PEVA and PER will both appear in time for the conference.

Authors of accepted papers that will be published in the ACM PER grant ACM permission to publish them in print and digital formats. Note that there are no copyright issues with PER, and thus authors retain the copyright of their work with complete freedom to submit their work elsewhere.


All submissions will be reviewed using a DOUBLE-BLIND REVIEW process: the identity of authors and referees will not be revealed to each other. To ensure blind reviewing, authors' names and affiliations should not appear in the paper; bibliographic references should be made in such a way as to preserve author anonymity.

Papers will be selected on the basis of their originality, technical standards, relevance and clarity. Submissions must be made electronically, details will be provided in the conference website.
