WPerformance

Workshop on Computer and Communication Systems Performance

ATTENTION: deadline for submission extended until March 26 April 16, 2021.

The Workshop on Computer and Communication Systems Performance, known as WPerformance (Workshop em Desempenho de Sistemas Computacionais e de Comunicação, in Portuguese), is a forum for discussion and dissemination of methods, models, techniques and tools for evaluating the performance of computer and communication systems. WPerformance proposes to receive papers in Portuguese or English related to performance problems in the most diverse areas of hardware, software and computing applications (for example, computer architecture, computer networks, distributed and parallel systems, cyber-physical systems, databases and operating systems).

Nineteen consecutive editions of WPerformance have already been held by the community, from 2002 to 2020, all in conjunction with the annual Brazilian Computer Society Conference (CSBC). In 2021, in its 20th edition, WPerformance will be held in the city of Florianópolis, capital of the state of Santa Catarina, Brazil.

As computing systems become increasingly larger and more complex, it is necessary to evaluate their performance using empirical approaches and / or mathematical models. The current diversity of computer and communication systems involves several parameters that have direct and indirect impacts on their performance. The study of these systems via measurement, emulation, simulation and modeling allows not only their best understanding, but also their optimization.

Submission Instructions

The workshop accepts submissions of full papers and short papers, not exceeding 12 and 6 pages, respectively, written in Portuguese or English. The submissions must follow the Code of Conduct for publications of Brazilian Computer Society (SBC). Submissions should follow the template of the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC). The templates for submission are available in http://www.sbc.org.br/documentos-da-sbc/summary/169-templates-para-artigos-e-capitulos-de-livros/878-modelosparapublicaodeartigos

The paper submission will be, exclusively, through the JEMS system in “CSBC 2021 – WPerformance” (https://jems.sbc.org.br/home.cgi?c=3735).

Accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of the event, which will be made available online at SBC OpenLib, SBC’s content portal, in the Proceedings of the Workshop em Desempenho de Sistemas Computacionais e de Comunicação (ISSN 2595-6167). All papers will be indexed with DOI.

The registration of at least one author of the paper is mandatory to insert the paper in the proceedings. Authors with more than one accepted paper, in any event, may pay a single registration fee, plus an “extra publication fee” per additional paper.

The WPerformance reserves the right to not include in the proceedings those papers that, during the workshop, are not presented by one of their authors or by a designated presenter. Presentation can be in Portuguese or English.

The event will select the 3 best papers according to the evaluations made by the reviewers. The best papers will receive certificates issued by the coordination of the event.
