Call for Papers

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 plans, ongoing work, or results on:

  • Software quality analysis in regard to:
    • Performance
    • Scalability and elasticity
    • Energy efficiency
    • Dependability and resilience
    • Security and privacy
  • Application performance measurement and management
  • Performance measurement and benchmarking
  • Performance modeling (modeling concepts, simulation, extraction and calibration)
  • Automated run-time management of software systems
  • Automated approaches for performance problem detection, diagnosis, and resolution
  • Performance-related challenges in industrial software systems
  • Application of Descartes, Kieker, or Palladio in projects

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

Types of Contributions

We solicit the following types of contributions:

  1. Technical papers (maximum 3 pages incl. references)
  2. Extended abstracts for industry or experience talks (maximum 700 words)

Submission Guidelines

Technical papers should follow the Softwaretechnik-Trends format and must be submitted electronically via EasyChair. Extended abstracts must be submitted as “abstract only” submissions (both in text and PDF format) via EasyChair.

We strongly encourage you to use our LaTeX template for your technical paper to minimize the need for adjustment if your submission is accepted. Make sure that the document uses a Times/Computer Modern font in 10 pt and that the paper size is A4.


At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register, attend the conference, and present the paper. Accepted papers will appear in the GI Softwaretechnik-Trends.
