Symposium on Software Performance

Descartes/Kieker/Palladio Days 2014
(Joint Developer and Community Meeting)

November 26-28, 2014
Stuttgart, Germany

Goals

Performance is one of the most relevant quality attributes of any IT system. While good performance leads to high user satisfaction, weak response times lead to loss of users, perceived unavailability of the system, or unnecessarily high costs of network or compute resources. Therefore, various techniques to evaluate, control, and improve the performance of IT systems have been developed, ranging from online monitoring and benchmarking to modeling and prediction. Experience shows, that for system design or later optimization, such techniques need to be applied in smart combination.

Therefore, the “Symposium on Software Performance” brings together researchers and practitioners interested in all facets of software performance, ranging from modeling and prediction to monitoring and runtime management. The symposium is organized by three already established research groups, namely Descartes, Kieker, and Palladio, who will use this symposium also as a joint developer and community meeting. Descartes' focus are techniques and tools for engineering self-aware computing systems designed for maximum dependability and efficiency. Kieker is a well‐established tool and approach for monitoring software performance of complex, large, and distributed IT systems. Palladio is a likewise‐established tool and approach for modeling software architectures of IT systems and for simulating their performance.

The symposium program will include contributions (in form of talks, tutorials, demos, and posters) from practitioners and researchers in the field of software performance, including but not limited to approaches employing Descartes/Kieker/Palladio.
