The 18th European Performance Engineering Workshop (EPEW 2022)

September 21-23, 2022.


EPEW 2022 aims to bring together researchers interested in understanding and improving the performance of systems where the flow of information is random by means of proper modelling and solution methods working on real-world or realistic applications of the methods applied in stochastic modelling, and on theoretical aspects arising as solutions to needs emerging from the study of real-world or realistic cases, across a broad spectrum of research fields. EPEW specially focuses on the application of methods to concrete applications, by paying attention to the choice of the parameters which must be close to concrete cases: it seeks papers to promote research results in the development and analysis of stochastic models arising among others in communication systems, manufacturing, production, service operations, supply chain/inventory management, and biological systems. Its scope includes both methodological and computational advances, with special interest in contributions that present novel solutions, including approaches based on novel tools, to real-world or realistic cases and related analysis or that present interesting and new design, assessment or performance evaluation solutions on new paradigmatic cases and problems, by means of methods meant to predict and efficiently design stochastic systems.


EPEW 2022 proceedings will be published as a Springer Verlag volume of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.

Submission Guidelines

Full papers reporting original and unpublished results on EPEW topics are solicited. Submissions should not be under consideration for publication elsewhere while being evaluated for this conference. The proceedings will be published in the Springer Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Submissions may already be prepared in LNCS format and must not exceed 15 pages, including figures, tables, and references; see the information for authors on Springer as web site for formatting instructions (Springer). Please clearly indicate the corresponding author. Note that authors will be required to sign a copyright release. The paper submission for EPEW 2022 will only be accepted through the EasyChair Paper Submission System (https://easychair.org/my/conference?conf=epew2022). Consistent with standard practice, each submitted paper will receive rigorous peer reviewing. Papers will be selected based on their originality, timeliness, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper in person, if accepted. All accepted papers in the conference are expected to be presented and will be included in the conference proceedings.

Best Paper award

The EPEW 2022 committee will select the best paper award of the conference for which a certificate will be presented at the end of the conference.
