The goal of the 1st Joint WOSP/SIPEW International Conference on
Performance Engineering is to provide a forum for ideas in
performance engineering of software and systems, including
performance measurement, modeling, benchmark design, and run-time
performance management.

WOSP/SIPEW is established as a joint meeting of the ACM Workshop on
Software and Performance (WOSP) and the SPEC International
Performance Evaluation Workshop (SIPEW).

Since its inception in 1998, WOSP has brought together software
engineers, developers, performance analysts and software/performance
modelers who are addressing the challenges of increasing system
complexity, rapidly evolving software technologies, short time to
market, incomplete documentation, and less-than-adequate methods,
models and tools for developing, modeling, and measuring scalable,
high-performance software. The focus of WOSP is therefore in the
intersection of software and performance, rather than one discipline
in isolation.

SIPEW was established by the Standard Performance Evaluation
Corporation (SPEC) with the goal to bridge the gap between theory and
practice in the field of system performance evaluation by providing a
forum for sharing ideas and experiences between industry and
academia. The workshop brings together researchers and industry
practitioners to share and present their experiences, discuss
challenges, and report state-of-the-art and in-progress research in
all aspects of performance evaluation.

The conference is co-located with the SPEC Annual Meeting 2010 which
will be attended by numerous representatives from across the hardware
and software industry. This will provide a unique opportunity for
researchers to meet with industry practitioners.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Performance modeling of software
   * Languages and ontologies
   * Methods and tools
   * Composing models
   * Capturing user behavior

Performance measurement and analysis
   * Software performance testing
   * Application performance measurement and monitoring
   * Analysis of measured application performance data

Performance and other quality attributes
   * Relationship/integration/tradeoffs with other QoS attributes
   * Relationship/integration/tradeoffs with cost and schedule

Performance and development processes
   * Software performance patterns and anti-patterns
   * Software/performance tool interoperability (models and data
     interchange formats)
   * Performance-oriented design, implementation and configuration
   * Software Performance Engineering and Model-Driven Development
   * Gathering, interpreting and exploiting software performance
     annotations and data

Performance modeling methodologies
   * Analytical, simulation and statistical modeling methodologies
   * Model validation and calibration techniques
   * Performance modeling and analysis tools

Model-driven performance testing, measurement, and experimental

Model-driven performance requirements engineering

   * Performance metrics and benchmark suites
   * Benchmarking methodologies
   * Development of parameterizable, flexible benchmarks
   * Use of benchmarks in industry and academia

Workload characterization and experimental performance evaluation
   * Workload characterization techniques
   * Application tracing and profiling
   * Performance tuning and optimization
   * Tools for performance measurement, profiling and tuning

Run-time performance management
   * Use of models at run-time
   * Online performance prediction
   * Autonomic resource management
   * Utility-based optimization

Performance evaluation in different environments and application
domains, including, but not limited to:
   * Service-oriented architectures (SOA)
   * Web-based systems, e-business, Web services
   * Transaction-oriented systems
   * Virtualization platforms
   * Communication networks
   * Parallel and distributed systems
   * Embedded and autonomous systems
   * Cluster and grid computing environments
   * High performance computing
   * Event-based systems
   * Real-time and multimedia systems
   * Peer-to-peer, mobile and wireless systems

Power and performance, energy efficiency

Various different kinds of papers are sought: basic research,
novel applications, and industrial experience, with different
criteria for each category. Experience reports are particularly


   * Full research papers (up to 12 pages, in ACM format)
   * Industrial experience reports which present unmet needs,
     or describe the application of a performance technique in enough
     detail that its effectiveness can be evaluated (any appropriate
     length up to 12 pages)
   * Short research/industrial papers (up to 6 pages in ACM format)
   * Poster session papers (up to 4 pages in ACM format)
   * Tutorial proposals (up to 2 pages in ACM format)

There will also be an hour-long work-in progress session.
Participants are invited to submit a title and abstract of a half a
page for this in advance, and will be given up to five minutes for
a quick presentation.
