Call For Contributions

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. The conference brings together researchers and industry practitioners to share and present their experience, to discuss challenges, and to report state-of-the-art and in-progress research on performance engineering.This year’s main theme is performance in the data center, in particular for hosting cloud applications and services.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to

  • Performance in the data center, cloud, and Internet of Things
  • Performance methods in software development
  • Model-driven performance engineering
  • Performance modeling and prediction
  • Performance measurement and experimental analysis
  • Benchmarks (workloads, scenarios, and implementations)
  • Run-time performance and capacity management
  • Performance in cloud, virtualized, and multi-core systems
  • Performance-driven resource and power management
  • Performance of big data systems
  • Performance modeling and evaluation in other domains
  • Performance requirements specification
  • Performance testing and validation
  • Relationship between performance and architecture
  • All other topics related to performance


Submission Guidelines

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished papers that are not being considered in another forum.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 for novel scientific insights, industrial and experience reports reporting on applying benchmarks or performance engineering in practice, and work-in-progress/vision papers for immature but yet interesting work. Different acceptance criteria apply for each category based on the expected content of the contribution’s type:

Authors will be requested to self-classify their papers according to topic and contribution style when submitting their papers.

For submission instructions, please visit: Submissions to all tracks need to be uploaded to ICPE’s easychair installation. After checking the submission instructions, visit:

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 2016 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.
