CONFERENCE REGISTRATION IS OPEN (The conference will be held at Wieboldt Hall in Northwestern University's downtown campus)

The 41st International Symposium on Computer Performance, Modeling, Measurements and Evaluation 2023 will be held in Evanston/Chicago, USA. The IFIP Performance conference aims to bring together researchers interested in understanding and improving the performance of communication systems by means of state-of-the-art quantitative models and solution techniques. The Performance conference has a long-standing tradition and has followed an 18-month cycle for many years, recently changed to a one year cycle. 

Main conference

The IFIP PERFORMANCE 2023 conference solicits research papers on the design of algorithms, mathematical modeling, simulation and measurement techniques for computer systems or communication networks. We specifically also invite papers reproducing prior results in these areas, when adding to the reproducibility or applicability of the result. 

Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following.

Performance-oriented methodologies including:

  • Analytical modelling techniques and model validation
  • Anomaly detection, problem diagnosis and troubleshooting
  • Capacity planning, resource allocation, routing, scheduling and quality of service
  • Experimental design, statistical analysis, simulation
  • Game theory, network economics, and platform design
  • Machine learning, data mining, graph analysis, optimization
  • Performance, scalability, power and reliability analysis
  • Stochastic modelling, statistical analysis and simulation
  • Sustainability analysis and power management
  • Complex networks, sorting and ranking
  • System measurement, performance monitoring and forecasting
  • Workload characterization and benchmarking

Evaluation techniques, and algorithms for:

  • Artificial intelligence and machine learning platforms
  • Blockchains and crypto-currency
  • Computer architectures and operating systems
  • Cyber-physical systems, internet of things, and smart grids
  • Data centres, content delivery, cloud computing and virtualization
  • High performance computing
  • Internet and web services
  • Mobile and personal computing systems
  • Network architectures, protocols and congestion control
  • Network economics and platform design
  • Privacy and algorithmic fairness
  • Security systems
  • Storage systems and data centres
  • Social networks, multimedia systems and smart grid
  • Virtualization, data centres, distributed and cloud computing, fog and edge computing
  • Quantum computing and quantum communication
  • Wireless, ad-hoc and cellular networks
