Work in Progress and Vision Track

The goal of the work-in-progress and vision track is two-fold:

  • To provide the opportunity for attendees to present and discuss preliminary results from their latest work obtaining some early feedback from the community
  • To provide the opportunity to present position papers on emerging hot topics in the field of performance engineering motivating new research directions

Work-in-progress papers present promising preliminary results that may not have been fully validated yet. Although full validation is not required, the work presented should be advanced enough to allow attendees to appreciate its scope and significance.

Vision papers present emerging research challenges and long-term research directions on topics relevant to the performance engineering community. Submissions should clearly present the research questions and their rationale sketching possible approaches to their resolution. The goal of such papers is to motivate new research and generate debate and discussions on the latest challenges in the field of performance engineering.

All contributions must be original, not published, accepted or submitted for publication elsewhere. Accepted papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings and included in the ACM Digital Library.


Submission process

Submit via EasyChair.
