Conference Scope

The European Performance Engineering Workshop is an annual event that aims to gather academic and industrial researchers working on all aspects of performance engineering.

EPEW 2014 is co-located with FORMATS 2014, QEST 2014, SAFECOMP 2014 and FMICS 2014. For information on all the conferences, check the co-location event FLORENCE 2014.

Original papers related to theoretical and methodological issues as well as case studies and automated tool support are solicited in the following three areas:

  1. Performance modeling and evaluation:
    • Probabilistic models
    • Stochastic models
    • Real-time models
    • Performability models

    • Quantitative extensions of process calculi
    • Specification of quantitative properties
    • Analytical solution techniques
    • Numerical solution techniques
    • Simulation techniques
    • Quantitative model checking
    • Quantitative equivalence checking
    • Quantitative static analysis
  2. System and network performance engineering:
