The goal of the International Conference on Performance Engineering (ICPE) is 
to integrate theory and practice in the field of performance engineering by 
providing a forum for sharing ideas and experiences between industry and 
academia. Nowadays, complex systems of all types, like Web-based systems, data 
centers and cloud infrastructures, social networks, peer-to-peer, mobile and 
wireless systems, cyber-physical systems, the Internet of Things, real-time and 
embedded systems, have increasingly distributed and dynamic system 
architectures that provide high flexibility, however, also increase the 
complexity of managing end-to-end application performance.
ICPE brings together researchers and industry practitioners to share and 
present their experiences, discuss challenges, and report state-of-the-art and 
in-progress research on performance engineering of software and systems, 
including performance measurement, modeling, benchmark design, and run-time 
performance management. The focus is both on classical metrics such as response 
time, throughput, resource utilization, and (energy) efficiency, as well as on 
the relationship of such metrics to other system properties including but not 
limited to scalability, elasticity, availability, reliability, and security.



ICPE enhances the experience of attending researchers and industry 
practitioners through a Tutorial Track led by renowned scientists and 
practitioners in the fields of relevance for the ICPE community. Topics of 
interest include, but are not limited to, performance measurement, performance 
modeling, benchmarking, and run-time performance management of complex systems 
of all types.

Proposals are welcomed for tutorials at introductory, intermediate, and 
advanced skill-levels, that either span a full day (6 hours, two breaks 
included), or a half-day (3 hours, one break included).

More information can be found at 



The tutorial proposal (maximum 5 pages) should describe concisely the content, 
importance and timeliness of the tutorial. It should include the following 
- Title;
- 150 to 200-word abstract describing the tutorial, that is suitable for 
inclusion on the conference website;
- Contact information (name, e-mail, affiliation) and a brief biography (up to 
200 words) of the presenter(s);
- Proposed duration (half-day (3 hours) or full-day (6 hours));
- Intended audience skill level (beginner, intermediate, advanced) and any 
prerequisite knowledge required;
- Outline of the tutorial (overall goal and concrete objectives, teaching 
method and structure);
- The link between the tutorial and the ICPE topics of interest (a sentence or 
- If appropriate, a description of past versions of the tutorial should be 
provided. It should be indicated where the tutorial has been given (venue, 
date, number of attendees) and how it will be modified for ICPE 2017.

Submissions can be made at the following link, selecting the ICPE 2017 Tutorial 

Authors of accepted tutorial proposals are expected to prepare a set of slides 
to be distributed to participants, including a bibliography pertinent to the 
tutorial. The camera-ready set of slides should be submitted as a PDF file with 
two slides per page.

Proposers of accepted tutorials will be given the opportunity to also submit a 
tutorial paper, which will appear in the conference proceedings. The content of 
a tutorial paper must be on the material covered by the tutorial and must not 
exceed 4 pages in size using the ACM format. Further instructions on the 
tutorial paper will follow.
