Conference Scope

In recent years, a range of performance evaluation methodologies and tools has been developed within disparate research communities for the purposes of evaluation, design, and model reduction. The aim of the Performance Evaluation Methodologies and Tools conference is to build bridges between these communities, bringing theory and practice together in order to:

punto elenco

compare and debate the complete range of performance evaluation methodologies and their implementation into tools;

punto elenco

promote interdisciplinary flow of technical information among industry systems designers and researchers.

Conference Topics and Application Areas

Performance evaluation techniques will draw from the following:

punto elenco

Advanced simulation tools

Simulation of rare events

Parallel/distributed simulations

Variance reduction techniques

Large deviations


punto elenco

Stochastic processes

Stochastic geometry

Long-range dependence
