The symposium will include invited talks from practitioners and researchers in the field of software performance, including but not limited to approaches employing Kieker/Palladio. In addition, we welcome contributions from the field. Hence, this call for participation also acts as a call for contributions to be presented at the symposium.

In general, we seek reports on applications and extensions of Kieker/Palladio in academic, scientific, or industrial contexts. Submission are thought for (but not limited to) plans, ongoing work, or results on:

  • Application of Kieker or Palladio in projects

  • Wish lists of tool features

  • Combined applications of Kieker and Palladio

  • Case studies of bottleneck searches and resolutions

  • Software performance patterns and anti‐patterns

  • Thoughts and experiences on the influence of the software architecture on software performance

  • Extraction and calibration of performance models

  • Performance in virtualized environments

  • Performance in trade‐off with other quality attributes, e.g., security or reliability

  • Model‐driven approaches for instrumentation and analysis

Submissions of extended abstracts should not exceed 5‐10 pages in LNI single‐ column format. Submissions need to be uploaded via the EasyChair conference system and will be reviewed by members of the organizing board. Accepted papers will be published in a volume of the CEUR Workshop Proceedings (http://ceur‐ If non‐original papers of the authors are submitted here, a reference must denote to the original publication and copyright concerns need to be clarified by the authors.

Participants are also encouraged to submit proposals for live demonstrations and tutorials of tools and approaches related to Kieker/Palladio.
