Scope

ValueTools 2014 focuses on methodologies and practices in modeling, performance evaluation and optimization of complex systems. It gathers together researchers from different communities including Computer Science, Networks and Telecommunications, Operations Research, Optimization, Control Theory and Manufacturing.

ValueTools 2014 solicits previously unpublished contributions that propose new performance evaluation methodologies and new tools. Three types of contributions are called for: regular papers, tool papers, and tutorials.

All presented papers in the conference will be published in the proceedings of the conference and submitted to ACM Digital Library.

A special issue in the Performance Evaluation Journal is planned. Papers may also be published in EAI Transactions on Algorithms Engineering.
