7th International Conference on Performance Evaluation Methodologies and Tools

Important dates:

  • **Submission deadline of regular papers**: extended to 15 September, 2013
  • **Submission deadline of tool papers**: 30 September, 2013
  • **Submission deadline of tutorials**: extended to 23 October, 2013
  • **Notification**: 30 October, 2013
  • **Camera-ready deadline**: 14 November, 2013
  • **Conference**: 10-12 December, 2013


**ValueTools 2013** is on methodologies and practices in modeling, performance evaluation and optimization of complex systems, gathering researchers from different communities, such as Computer Science, Networks and Telecommunications, Operations Research, Optimization, Control Theory and Manufacturing.

ValueTools 2013 solicits previously unpublished contributions on new performance evaluation methodologies and new tools. Three types of contributions are called for: **regular papers, tool papers**, and **tutorials**. Submission information for all three types can be found here.

All accepted contributions will be published in the ACM Digital Library and will be submitted to the major indexing services (like Scopus). Extended version of selected regular papers will be published in a **special issue of the Performance Evaluation Journal**.
