Call for Papers (CfP)

November 4-6, 2015
Munich, Germany

München Panorama


We solicit the following two types of submissions: technical papers (maximum 3 pages), extended abstracts for industry or experience talks (maximum 700 words), and posters (not larger than DIN A1). Technical papers should follow the standard ACM SIG proceedings format (no permission/copyright block required) and need to be submitted electronically via EasyChair. Extended abstracts need to be submitted as "abstract only" submissions via EasyChair. For Posters an abstract (maximum 700 words) need to be submitted via EasyChair and the submission title should be tagged with "[Poster]". Accepted technical papers will be published in the Softwaretechnik-Trends. Extended abstracts will not be published. Submitted papers can be research papers, position papers, case studies or experience reports including but not limited to approaches employing Descartes, Kieker, and/or Palladio. General topics of interest:

  • 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
  • Palladio used for the prediction of other quality properties beyond performance
  • Wish lists of tool features

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

Presentations will be organized in sessions with 30-minute slots incl. discussion. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register, attend the conference and present the paper


Accepted technical papers will be published in the Softwaretechnik-Trends after the symposium. Extended abstracts will not be published.
