[PVS] [qest-announce] MMB & DFT 2010, Second Call for Papers

----- MMB & DFT 2010 ---- SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS -------

15th International GI/ITG Conference on
“Measurement, Modelling and Evaluation of Computing Systems”
and “Dependability and Fault Tolerance”

Organized by GI/ITG Technical Committees on
“Measurement, Modelling and Evaluation of Computing Systems (MMB)” and
“Dependability and Fault-Tolerance (DFT)”

MMB & DFT 2010: March 15 ­ 17, 2010  in  Essen (Germany)
Conference Homepage: www.mmb2010.org

The technical committees MMB and DFT are the main fora in Germany covering
all aspects of performance and dependability evaluation of systems including
networks, computer architectures, distributed systems, software,
fault-tolerant and secure systems. In 2010 both committees join forces in a
common conference. MMB & DFT 2010 will start with a half day of tutorials
from scientific and industrial experts; invited talks and tool presentations
will accompany the scientific program. The conference language is English.

Topics of MMB & DFT 2010  include:

• Systems including Performance, Dependability, Security, Survivability,
Real-Time, Economic and Related Aspects like Performance-Dependability
• Fault-Tolerant Systems and Fault-Tolerant Networks, Dependable Computing,
Redundancy Techniques, Fault Modelling, Fault Injection
• Testing, Measuring, Benchmarking and Monitoring of Systems and Networks
• Queueing Systems, Stochastic Petri Nets, Stochastic Process Algebras,
Markov Chains, Non-Markovian Models, Fluid Models, Network Calculus,

CASE STUDIES in all Application Fields

Full conference papers: Papers must be unpublished and must not be submitted
for publication elsewhere. All papers will be thoroughly reviewed by at
least three referees on the basis of their originality and their scientific
and practical contribution to the state-of-the-art. Accepted papers will
appear in the conference proceedings. Authors should submit full papers (PDF
file, together with abstract) to the Conference System before October 1,
2009. Papers must be written in English and should not to exceed 15 pages
(LNCS style). Final versions of accepted papers will be required by
December 18, 2009.
The proceedings will be published in the Springer series LNCS.
A best paper award will be provided.

Tool descriptions: Special sessions will be arranged to present and
demonstrate tools relevant to any topic covered by the Call for Papers.
Please send a tool description (up to four pages) to the tools chair.
Accepted tool descriptions will appear in the proceedings.

Tutorial proposals: Tutorials in the morning of March 15 preceding the
conference will be organized. Please send tutorial proposals to the
conference chairs.
