*IFIP WG 7.3 PERFORMANCE 2020*38th International Symposium on
Computer Performance, Modeling, Measurement and Evaluation

November 2nd-6th, 2020, Milan, Italy

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

The IFIP 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.
Research papers on the design of algorithms, mathematical analysis and
modeling, simulation and measurement techniques for computer systems or
communication networks are solicited.

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
- Storage systems and datacenters

Evaluation techniques, and algorithms for:
- Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
- Blockchains and crypto-currency
- Cyber-physical systems, Internet of Things, fog computing
- Data centers, content delivery, cloud computing and virtualization
- Internet and web services
- Network economics and markets
- Security systems
- Social networks, multimedia systems and smart grid
- Wireless, ad-hoc and cellular networks

Abstract submission: May 10th, 2020
Full paper submission: May 17th, 2020
Notification to authors: July 19th, 2020

Performance 2020 accepts submissions in two categories:
- Regular papers: 12 pages
- Short papers: 6 pages

Regular  papers should not exceed 12 pages double-column and single-spaced
including figures, tables and references in standard ACM format. Short
 papers are limited to 6 pages.  In addition (both for regular and short
paper submissions), a 2-page appendix is permitted, which is not included
in the page-count. Papers must be submitted electronically in printable pdf
form. Templates for the standard ACM format can be found at
https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template. Both the strict and
alternate styles are acceptable for submission. No changes to margins,
spacing or font sizes are allowed from those specified by the style files.
Papers violating the formatting guidelines will be returned without review.

Papers can be submitted at

Warning: It is ACM policy not to allow double submissions, where the same
paper is submitted to more than one conference/journal concurrently. Any
double submissions detected will be rejected immediately from all
conferences/journals involved.

Accepted short papers (limited to 6 pages ) and abstracts of accepted
regular papers will be published in a special issue of the ACM Performance
Evaluation Review (PER).

Regular papers will be published in a special issue of the Elsevier journal
Performance Evaluation (PEVA).

Alternatively (to be confirmed), authors may opt-out in favor of submission
to other special issues in one of:
- ACM Transactions on Modeling and Performance Evaluation of Computing
Systems (TOMPECS)
- Queueing Systems: Theory and Applications (QUESTA)
- Stochastic Systems

Authors need to make sure that their work falls within the scope of the
respective journal. All papers will be reviewed according to the standards
of the journal.
