The International Conference on Performance Engineering (ICPE) is the
leading international forum for presenting and discussing novel ideas,
innovations, trends and experiences in the field of performance
engineering. Modern systems, such as big data and machine learning
environments,  data centers and cloud infrastructures, social networks,
peer-to-peer, mobile and wireless systems, cyber-physical systems, the
Internet of Things or more traditional ones such as web-based or real-
time systems, rely increasingly on distributed and dynamic architectures
and pose a challenge to their end-to-end performance management.

ICPE brings together researchers and practitioners to report
state-of-the-art and in-progress research on performance engineering of
software and systems, including performance measurement, modeling,
benchmark design, and run-time performance management. The focus is both
on classical metrics such as response time, throughput, resource
utilization, and (energy) efficiency, as well as on the relationship of
such metrics to other system properties including but not limited to
scalability, elasticity, availability, reliability, cost, sustainability,
security and privacy. The systems of interest include any type of computing
or software system, such as (but not limited to) desktop systems, cloud
systems, web-based systems, embedded systems, distributed systems and
cyber-physical systems. The handling of performance issues at all stages
of software and system life cycles is also of interest.

This year, we particularly encourage researchers to submit their work on
the performance engineering of ‘modern’ application domains as well, such
as deep learning, blockchain, microservices, Big Data, DevOps and/or
Autonomous Systems.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Performance modeling of software:
* Languages and ontologies
* Methods and tools
* Relationship/integration/tradeoffs with other QoS attributes
* Analytical, simulation and statistical modeling methodologies
* Machine learning and neural networks
* Model validation and calibration techniques
* Automatic model extraction
* Performance modeling and analysis tools

Performance and software development processes/paradigms:
* Software performance testing
* Software performance (anti-)patterns
* Software/performance tool interoperability (models and data interchange
* Performance-oriented design, implementation and configuration management
* Software Performance Engineering and Model-Driven Development
* Gathering, interpreting and exploiting software performance annotations
and data
* System sizing and capacity planning techniques
* (Model-driven) Performance requirements engineering
* Relationship between performance and architecture
* Performance and agile methods
* Performance in Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA)
* Software and system scalability and its impact on performance

Performance measurement, monitoring and analysis:
* Application tracing and profiling
* Workload characterization techniques
* Experimental design
* Tools and techniques for performance testing, measurement, profiling and
* and analysis of the resulting data

* Performance metrics and benchmark suites
* Benchmarking methodologies
* Development of parameterizable, flexible benchmarks
* Benchmark workloads and scenarios
* Use of benchmarks in industry and academia

Run-time performance management and adaptation
* Machine learning and runtime performance decisions
* Context modeling and analysis
* Runtime model estimation
* Use of models at run-time
* Online performance prediction
* Autonomic resource management
* Utility-based optimization
* Capacity management

Power and performance, energy efficiency
* Power consumption models and management techniques
* Tradeoffs between performance and energy efficiency
* Performance-driven resource and power management

All other topics related to performance of software and systems.



Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished papers that are not
being considered in another forum. A variety of contribution styles for
papers is solicited including: basic and applied research papers for
novel scientific insights, industrial and experience papers reporting on
applying performance engineering or benchmarks in practice, and
work-in-progress papers for ongoing innovative work. Different
acceptance criteria apply based on the expected content of the
individual contribution types.

Authors will be requested to self-classify their papers according to
the provided topic areas when submitting their papers.

Submissions to all tracks need to be uploaded to ICPE's submission
system and conform to the ACM submission format.

At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register at
the full rate, attend the conference and present the paper. Presented
papers will be published in the ICPE 2021 conference proceedings that
will be published by ACM and included in the ACM Digital Library.

Authors of accepted research papers are invited to submit an artifact to
the ACM/SPEC ICPE 2021 Artifact Track.

The highest quality papers, judged by multiple relevant factors, will be
recognized with an award. Authors of selected papers will be invited to
submit an extended version of their work to a journal.

AUTHORS TAKE NOTE: The official publication date is the date the
proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may
be up to two weeks prior to the first day of your conference. The
official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings
related to published work. (For those rare conferences whose proceedings
are published in the ACM Digital Library after the conference is over,
the official publication date remains the first day of the conference.)
