5th IEEE International Workshop on

Performance Evaluation of Communications in Distributed Systems

and Web based Service Architectures



June 23-26, 2014, Madeire, Portugal





Description : http://www.ieee-iscc.org/2014/images/headerFunchal.jpg






Performance evaluation is still a topic that attains a lot of attention in both distributed and mobile systems as well as Web based services architectures. Due to the recent advances in internet based applications as well as distributed and mobile communication systems, we are witnessing a variety of new technologies. However, these systems are becoming very large and complex at the same time. Several challenges remain to be resolved before these systems become a commodity. Guaranteeing QoS and provisioning of web-based systems as well as distributed and mobile systems and evaluating their communication performance represent among the challenging problem in the design of these systems. Quantitative analysis can be very difficult and may be intractable because of the state space explosion. New methods and tools have recently emerged for these kinds of complex systems, such as Stochastic Automata Networks, Stochastic bounds, PEPA, É


This workshop focus on the performance evaluation of both distributed and mobile systems, as well as Web based services architectures using both analytical methods and simulation studies. Authors are encouraged to submit full papers presenting new research related to QoS and communication performance evaluation of these systems. Submitted papers must not have been published elsewhere nor currently be under review by another conference or journal.


Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

                 Communication performance evaluation of distributed and mobile systems

                 Performance evaluation of distributed and web-based systems

                 Measurement, analysis, modeling

                 Tools and software for performance evaluation

                 Simulation and measurements techniques

                 QoS for Web services architectures

                 Web services composition

                 Quantitative analysis

                 Stochastic comparisons

                 Network Protocols design for Web service devices

                 Routing optimization

High-quality original papers are solicited. Papers must be unpublished and must not be submitted for publication elsewhere. All papers will be reviewed by Technical Program Committee members and other experts active in the field to ensure high quality and relevance to the conference.  Submission should include a coverpage with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords from the above list of topics and an abstract of no more than 400 words. The full manuscript should be at most 6 pages using the

two-column IEEE format. Additional pages will be charged additional fee.

Papers MUST be submitted in PDF format and only through EDAS (please visit  the http://www.ieee-iscc.org/ website or submit directly through EDAS  https://edas.info/newPaper.php?c=17021).


The authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be presented at the conference. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference in order include the paper in IEEE Xplore Digital Library.
