Welcome to UKPEW 2015

31st UK Performance Engineering Workshop

Leeds, UK
17-18 September 2015

UKPEW is the leading UK forum for the presentation of all aspects of performance modelling and analysis of computer and telecommunication systems. Original papers are invited on all relevant topics but papers on or related to the subjects listed below are particularly welcome.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Stochastic modelling of computer systems and networks
  • Tools for all aspects of performance engineering from workload characterisation to operational analysis
  • Modelling paradigms including, but not limited to: Stochastic Process Algebras, Stochastic Petri Nets and Queueing Theory
  • Solution and simplification techniques for large Markov processes
  • Formal notations for performance modelling
  • Modelling and analysis of reliability and performance guarantees
  • Performance-oriented design and analysis methods
  • Novel techniques in computer system simulation
  • Performance case studies and industrial reports
  • Experience and evaluation of existing tools and techniques
  • Performance and power consumption tradeoffs
  • Performance overhead of secure systems
  • Performance analysis of communication networks, mobile and wireless networks, software systems, distributed systems, system architectures, embedded systems, web-based systems, grid and cloud computing,...
This workshop is the primary event at which the UK performance community can get together to present and discuss their work. Whilst primarily aimed at UK based performance engineers, we also welcome contributions from researchers working in other countries and those whose interest in performance is derived from experience in other fields. It provides an ideal opportunity for academics, industrialists and PhD students to relate experience and to present both finished work and work in progress. The event has been organised to sustain the atmosphere of informality that previous UKPEWs have fostered.


Accepted papers will be included in the workshop proceedings (with ISBN) available at the conference. For each accepted paper, at least one author should register for the conference and plan to present the paper.

Submission guidelines

Please submit an extended abstract (max. 3 pages) or a full paper (up to 15 pages, single column) via the UKPEW'2015 Web site. Papers must be original contributions that have not been published previously. Practical experience reports and tools descriptions/demonstrations are welcome. The title page must contain a short abstract and a classification of the topics covered, preferably using the list of topics above.
