In addition to invited talks from practitioners and researchers, we welcome contributions from academic, scientific, or industrial contexts in the field of software performance, including but not limited to approaches employing Descartes, Kieker, and/or Palladio.


Submission are thought for (but not limited to) plans, ongoing work, or results on:

  • Application performance management
  • 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
  • Automatic approaches for performance problem detection, diagnosis, and resolution
  • Performance-related challenges in industrial software systems
  • Application of Descartes, Kieker, or Palladio in projects
  • Combined applications of Descartes, Kieker, and Palladio
  • Wish lists of tool features

Note that we explicitly welcome contributions that have already been (partially) presented at other events or in publications.
