Imperial College London, 9–10 July

Queen's Tower, Imperial College London

EPEW Information


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

We solicit original papers on performance evaluation techniques for computer and telecommunication systems analysis as well as for the analysis of manufacturing systems, real-time and embedded systems. Papers on or related to the following topics are particularly welcome.

  • Performance-oriented design and analysis methods
  • Formal modelling paradigms: stochastic process algebra, stochastic Petri nets, stochastic automata networks, Markov chains, queueing theory
  • Solution and simplification techniques for Markov processes and non-Markovian stochastic processes
  • Model checking and validation
  • Approximate results for Markov and semi-Markov Processes
  • Simulation techniques and experimental design
  • Benchmarks and benchmark evaluation
  • Performance tools
  • Performance case studies
  • Performability modelling
  • Software performance engineering
  • Performance and power consumption tradeoffs
  • Performance overhead of secure systems
  • New frontiers of performance evaluation/modelling
  • Performance analysis of communication networks, mobile and wireless networks, software systems, distributed systems, system architectures, embedded systems, web-based systems, grid computing, peer-to-peer networks, publish-subsribe architectures
