The 10th EAI International Conference on Performance Evaluation Methodologies and Tools (ValueTools 2016) will take place in Taormina, Italy on 26-28 October, 2016.
ValueTools 2016 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.
The conference solicits previously unpublished contributions that propose new performance evaluation methodologies and new tools on the following topics of interest:
- Communication & computer systems;
- Distributed systems;
- Cloud computing systems;
- Cloud and Edge/Fog computing systems;
- Machine Learning;
- Large-scale performance analysis;
