ValueTools 2015, the 9th International Conference on Performance Evaluation Methodologies and Tools, will take place in Berlin, Germany on December 14–16, 2015.
The Conference focuses on methodologies and practices in modeling, performance evaluation and optimization of complex systems. It gathers together researchers from different communities including Computer Science, Networks and Telecommunications, Operations Research, Optimization, Control Theory and Manufacturing.
ValueTools 2015 solicits previously unpublished contributions that propose new performance evaluation methodologies and new tools. Three types of contributions are called for: regular papers, tool papers, and tutorials.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Communication & computer;
- Distributed systems;
- Cloud computing systems;
- Machine Learning;
- Large-scale performance analysis;
- Interdisciplinary problems;
- Manufacturing systems & supply chains;
- Transportation systems;
- Stochastic models;
- Process algebras;
- Queues and queueing-networks;
- Discrete-event simulation;
- Mean-field techniques;
- Fluid approximations;
- Game theory.
Regular papers, tool papers, and short papers presented at the conference will be submitted to the ACM Digital Library. Additionally, a special issue in Performance Evaluation is planned. Fast Abstracts will be published as a Technical Report.
Paper submission deadline: September 14th, 2015
Acceptance Notification: October 15th, 2015
