31st UK Performance Engineering Workshop
Leeds, UK
17-18 September 2015

UKPEW is the leading UK forum for the presentation of all aspects of
performance modelling and analysis of computer and telecommunication systems.
Original papers are invited on all relevant topics but papers on or related to
the subjects listed below are particularly welcome.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Stochastic modelling of computer systems and networks
- Tools for all aspects of performance engineering from workload
   characterisation to operational analysis
- Modelling paradigms including, but not limited to: Stochastic Process
   Algebras, Stochastic Petri Nets and Queueing Theory
- Solution and simplification techniques for large Markov processes
- Formal notations for performance modelling
- Modelling and analysis of reliability and performance guarantees
- Performance-oriented design and analysis methods
- Novel techniques in computer system simulation
- Performance case studies and industrial reports
- Experience and evaluation of existing tools and techniques
- Performance and power consumption tradeoffs
- Performance overhead of secure systems
- Performance analysis of communication networks, mobile and wireless
    networks, software systems, distributed systems, system architectures,
    embedded systems, web-based systems, grid and cloud computing.

This workshop is the primary event at which the UK performance community can
get together to present and discuss their work. Whilst primarily aimed at UK
based performance engineers, we also welcome contributions from researchers
working in other countries and those whose interest in performance is derived
from experience in other fields. It provides an ideal opportunity for
academics, industrialists and PhD students to relate experience and to present
both finished work and work in progress. The event has been organised to
sustain the atmosphere of informality that previous UKPEWs have fostered.

Steering Committee
- Irfan Awan (Bradford)
- Jeremy Bradley (Imperial College London)
- Stephen Gilmore (Edinburgh)
- Stephen Jarvis (Warwick)
- Rob Pooley (Heriot-Watt)

Organizing Committee
- Richard Kavanagh University of Leeds, UK
- Django Armstrong University of Leeds, UK
- Karim Djemame University of Leeds, UK

Accepted papers will be included in the workshop proceedings (with ISBN)
available at the conference. For each accepted paper, at least one author
should register for the conference and plan to present the paper.

Submission Guidelines
Please submit an extended abstract (max. 3 pages) or a full paper (up to
15 pages, single column) via Easychair submission page:
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ukpew2015 Papers must be original
contributions that have not been published previously. Practical
experience reports and tools descriptions/demonstrations are welcome. The
title page must contain a short abstract and a classification of the
topics covered, preferably using the list of topics above.
