The goal of the International Conference on Performance Engineering
(ICPE) is to integrate theory and practice in the field of performance
engineering by providing a forum for sharing ideas and experiences
between industry and academia. ICPE is a joint meeting of the ACM
Workshop on Software and Performance (WOSP) and the SPEC International
Performance Evaluation Workshop (SIPEW). The conference brings together
researchers and industry practitioners to share and present their
experience, to discuss challenges, and to report state-of-the-art and
in-progress research on performance engineering.

1st Workshop on Performance and Energy-efficiency in Concurrent Systems (PECS 2021)

Concurrent systems, based on (distributed) multi/many-core processing units, are the
nowadays reference computing architecture. The (continuously-growing) level of hardware
parallelism they offer has lead these platforms to play a central role at any scale,
ranging from data centers, to personal (mobile) devices. Optimizing performance and/or
ensuring energy efficiency when running complex software stacks on top of these systems
is extremely challenging due to several aspects, like data dependencies or resource
sharing (and interference) among application threads, as well as VMs. Furthermore,
hardware accelerators like GPGPUs or FPGAs introduce a level of heterogeneity that
can potentially offer further opportunities for combined gain in performance and energy
efficiency, if correctly exploited.
The goal of this workshop is to establish a venue for both academia and industry experts
and practitioners, where they can discuss challenges, perspectives and opportunities
given by researching on scalable, energy-efficient and secure software deployed on top
of modern (heterogeneous) concurrent platforms.

to the authors’ work that would disclose their identity. This information can be later
added to accepted manuscripts.

Papers must be unpublished and must not be submitted for publication elsewhere. Each
submission must be accompanied by the following information:
- a short abstract,
- a complete list of authors and their affiliations,
- a contact person for correspondence, and
- postal and email addresses.

The 4th International Workshop on Autonomic Solutions for Parallel and Distributed
Data Stream Processing (Auto-DaSP 2021)

The workshop aims to collect scientific contributions from the community working in
the Data Stream Processing (DSP) domain at different levels, both experts in streaming
algorithms and applications and researchers working on stream processing frameworks
and support tools. The focus is on parallel and autonomic models and practical
implementations of DSP applications on parallel hardware and distributed systems,
performance management and optimization with autonomic runtime in parallel/distributed
settings. The focus on integrating autonomic mechanisms, strategies, and runtime supports
in parallel/distributed data stream processing distinguishes Auto-DaSP from the other
workshops in the field. At the same time, the cross-cutting goals of Auto-DaSP allow a
strong connection with more general aspects of parallel and distributed programming and
with ICPE 2021 interest on performance engineering of modern application domains.
Auto-DaSP 2021 builds upon the successful three editions held in conjunction with the
2017, 2018, and 2019 Euro-Par conferences.
The expected outcome has a twofold nature: stimulating scientific questions on the
interrelations among the three core parts of the workshop, i.e. autonomic computing,
high-performance, and data stream processing; cross-fertilizing the parallel/distributed
computing and performance engineering domains with the DSP research area.
The workshop aims to attract contributions to performance aspects in DSP applications
and systems and autonomic solutions to deal with variable workloads.

Workshop on Challenges and Opportunities in Large Scale Performance (WOSP-C)

The workshop welcomes contributions that discuss and/or address emerging performance
problems and challenges that arise anywhere across the life cycle, from requirements to
design, testing and evolution of the product. In this sixth edition, we emphasize
contributions on software performance challenges in Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS).
CPS combine software and physical components in an infrastructure that is responsible
for computation and interaction with the physical world, with humans, and with other
CPS. New advances in computing and networking make that the software part in CPS gets
more and more responsibilities, raising new performance challenges.

3rd Workshop on Education and Practice of Performance Engineering (WEPPE)


The goal of the Workshop on Education and Practice of Performance Engineering is to bring
together University researchers and Industry Performance Engineers to share education and
practice experiences. We are interested in creating opportunities to share experiences
between researchers that are actively teaching performance engineering and of Performance
Engineers that are applying Performance Engineering techniques in industry.

4TH Workshop on Hot Topics in Cloud Computing Performance (HotCloudPerf)

Cloud computing is emerging as one of the most profound changes in the way we build and use
IT. The use of global services in public clouds is increasing, and the lucrative and rapidly
growing global cloud market already supports over 1 million IT-related jobs. However, it is
currently challenging to make the IT services offered by public and private clouds performant
(in an extended sense) and efficient. Emerging architectures, techniques, and real-world
systems include hybrid deployment, serverless operation, everything as a service, complex
workflows, auto-scaling and -tiering, etc. It is unclear to which extent traditional performance
engineering, software engineering, and system design and analysis tools can help with
understanding and engineering these emerging technologies. The community also needs practical
tools and powerful methods to address hot topics in cloud computing performance.
Responding to this need, the HotCloudPerf workshop proposes a meeting venue for academics
and practitioners, from experts to trainees, in the field of cloud computing performance.
The workshop aims to engage this community, and to lead to the development of new methodological
aspects for gaining deeper understanding not only of cloud performance, but also of cloud
operation and behavior, through diverse quantitative evaluation tools, including benchmarks,
metrics, and workload generators. The workshop focuses on novel cloud properties such as
elasticity, performance isolation, dependability, and other non-functional system properties,
in addition to classical performance-related metrics such as response time, throughput,
scalability, and efficiency.
Theme of the 2021 workshop's edition: “Benchmarking in the Cloud”
Articles focusing on this topic are particularly encouraged for HotCloudPerf-2021

The Ninth International Workshop on Load Testing and Benchmarking of Software Systems (LTB)

Software systems (e.g., smartphone apps, desktop applications, telecommunication infrastructures,
cloud and enterprise systems, etc.) have strict requirements on software performance. Failure to
meet these requirements may cause business losses, customer defection, brand damage and other
serious consequences. In addition to conventional functional testing, the performance of these
systems must be verified through load testing or benchmarking to ensure quality service.
Load testing and benchmarking software systems are difficult tasks, which requires a great
understanding of the system under test and customer behavior. Practitioners face many challenges
such as tooling (choosing and implementing the testing tools), environments (software and hardware
setup) and time (limited time to design, test, and analyze). This one-day workshop brings together
software testing researchers, practitioners and tool developers to discuss the challenges and
opportunities of conducting research on load testing and benchmarking software systems.
