38th International Symposium on Computer Performance, Modeling, Measurements and Evaluation 2020

The 38th International Symposium on Computer Performance, Modeling, Measurements and Evaluation will be held in Milan, Italy from 2nd November to 6th November 2020. 

The IFIP WG 7.3 Performance conference aims to bring together researchers interested in understanding and improving the performance of computing and communication systems by means of state-of-the-art quantitative models and solution techniques. The Performance conference has a long-standing tradition and has followed an 18-month cycle for many years. Recently, the interval has been changed to one year. 

COVID-19 Update

Conference organizers have the safety and health of our community as a top priority. We are continuously monitoring the COVID-19 situation from local authorities and the World Health Organization. The conference is six-month away, and we hope that COVID-19 emergency will pass over and the conference will be held in November, as planned. However, if necessary, alternative solutions, such as postponement and remote presentations will be adopted.
In any case, timely publication of the papers at journal special issues is confirmed. More information will be provided to authors and attendees after the due date of acceptance notification.

Topics of interest include the following

Performance-oriented methodologies including:

  • Stochastic modelling, statistical analysis and simulation
  • Capacity planning, resource allocation, routing, scheduling and Quality of Service
  • Energy-efficient computing and networking
  • Computer architectures and operating systems
  • Network architectures, protocols and congestion control
