The 28th International Symposium on Computer Performance, Modeling, Measurements and Evaluation
Namur, Belgium, 17th to 19th of November, 2010

Paper registration: 12th of March, 2010.
Paper submission: 22th of March, 2010.

The PERFORMANCE 2010 conference solicits papers on the development and application of state-of-the-art, broadly applicable analytic, simulation, and measurement-based performance evaluation techniques.

Of particular interest is work that presents new performance evaluation methods, or those that creatively apply previously developed methods to understand or to gain important insights into key design trade-offs in computer or network systems.

Performance is broadly construed, including considerations of speed and scalability as well as reliability, availability, and manageability of systems. We particularly encourage submissions including real world empirical studies and focusing on implementation and experimental issues.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

· Performance-oriented design and evaluation studies of: computer networks, mobile devices and wireless networks, distributed and parallel systems, file and storage systems, power management, database systems, computer architectures, operating systems, Web services, fault-tolerant systems, and language and runtime systems.

· Performance methodology techniques and algorithms for: analytic modeling, system measurement and monitoring, model verification and validation, simulation, statistical analysis, experimental design, and reliability analysis.

Full papers will be published in a special issue of the journal Performance Evaluation (Elsevier).
