In recent years, a range of performance evaluation methodologies and tools 
has been developed within various research communities for the purposes of 
evaluation, design, and model reduction. The aim of the Performance 
Evaluation Methodologies and Tools conference is to build bridges between 
these communities, bringing theory and practice together. 

Topics include, but are not limited to: 

A. Performance evaluation techniques 

o Advanced simulation tools 
 - Simulation of rare events
 - Parallel/distributed simulations
 - Variance reduction techniques
 - Large deviations
 - Hybrid system simulation 

o Discrete event systems 
 - Petri nets
 - Max-plus algebra
 - Automata, timed automata

o Queueing theory 
 - Markovian queues and networks
 - Network calculus
 - Analytical methods
 - Approximation methods
 - (In)Sensitivity
 - Dynamic Fluid Models
 - Diffusion models
 - Dam processes
 - Perturbation approaches
 - Control of Queues

o Other stochastic models 
 - Stochastic geometry
 - Long-range dependence
 - Self-similarity
 - Point processes 
 - Traffic models and measurements

o Other topics 
 - Supervisory control
 - Reliability/performability tools
 - Neural networks and decision tools
 - Game theory and pricing
 - Resource allocation
 - Complex Networks

B. Applications 

 - Computer networks (including peer-to-peer systems and traffic control 
 - Computer systems (e.g., grid computing)
 - Communication systems
 - Wireless networks (including MAC and routing protocols, cellular 
   networks, Ad Hoc/Sensor etc.)
 - Distributed systems
 - Road traffic and transportation systems
 - Public utility networks
 - Manufacturing systems and supply chains
 - Call centers
 - Economic, biological and social systems

Authors are invited to submit papers of up to 10 pages in a PDF file, 
complying with the ACM conference proceedings format, through Easychair 
( Each paper will be peer reviewed for quality
and correctness by at least three reviewers. Only original papers, 
written in English, which have not been published previously elsewhere, 
and are not currently under review for publication elsewhere, will be 
accepted. At least one author of each accepted paper must register and 
present the work at the conference. 

Publication and awards
The event is organized by ICST in cooperation with the ACM Special 
Interest Groups on computer/communication system performance (SIGMETRICS) 
(approval pending) and Simulation (SIGSIM) (approval pending). All 
accepted papers will be made available in the ACM Digital Library (approval 
pending) and EU-DL. Best papers, after further reviews, will be considered 
for publication in a special issue of the Performance Evaluation Journal 
(approval pending) and Discrete Events Dynamic Systems Journal (approval 

A Best Paper and Best Student Paper will be selected by peer reviews and 
will be acknowledged with awards presented during the social event.
