Methodologies, evaluation techniques, and algorithms for:

Paper Submission

  1. REGULAR PAPERS: should not exceed 22 double-spaced pages including figures, tables and references. A clearly marked appendix of up to 8 (double spaced) pages may be added, but it will be read at the discretion of the TPC.
  2. SHORT PAPERS: should not exceed 3 double-column pages including figures, tables and references. SHORT PAPERS can either summarize very recent research results (including work in progress) or discuss results that do not require a full paper submission.

Both REGULAR and SHORT papers will be presented in the conference and published in the proceedings of the conference:

  1. The authors of a REGULAR paper will be given the choice to have their paper published either in a special issue of Performance Evaluation (PEVA) or in a special issue of the ACM Performance Evaluation Review (PER).
  2. SHORT papers will appear in the special issue of PER.

These special issues of PEVA and PER will both appear in time for the conference.

Authors of accepted papers that will be published in the ACM PER grant ACM permission to publish them in print and digital formats. Note that there are no copyright issues with PER, and thus authors retain the copyright of their work with complete freedom to submit their work elsewhere.

Review Process

All submissions will be reviewed using a DOUBLE-BLIND REVIEW process: the identity of authors and referees will not be revealed to each other. To ensure blind reviewing, authors' names and affiliations should not appear in the paper; bibliographic references should be made in such a way as to preserve author anonymity.

Papers will be selected on the basis of their originality, technical standards, relevance and clarity. Submissions must be made electronically, details will be provided in the conference website.
