Tracks and Submissions

The Research Track is open to research papers of both theoretical and empirical nature with original research contribution. Novel theoretical insights, empirical evaluations, reproduction experiments and case studies are all welcome.

The Industry Track focuses on high quality submissions from industry that increase the collaboration between industry and academia through the sharing of production state-of-the-art, open problems, and novel applications of theory in practice.

Authors of performance-focused papers published in selected journals are invited to submit to the Journal First Track and present their work at ICPE 2024.

The Emerging Research Track offers the opportunity to present and discuss new ideas and vision papers on emerging research challenges. Also, preliminary results from the latest research may be presented, where some aspects of the work remain open, possibly with limited or no evaluation.

The Artifacts Track hosts artifacts accompanying the accepted research track and industry track papers, but also independently submitted data and independently submitted tools.

The Data Challenge Track invites participants to address the challenges presented by a performance dataset provided by the organizers.

The Poster and Demo Track welcomes posters outlining work relevant to the performance engineering community, as well as technical demonstrations providing an opportunity to showcase an existing tool or a research prototype. Submissions can also be related to papers submitted to the other tracks.

The Tutorials Track welcomes proposals for tutorials presented by leading scientists and practitioners in areas of relevance for the ICPE community.

The Workshops Track welcomes proposals for workshops on specific aspects of performance engineering.

General Submission Information

Submissions to all tracks need to be uploaded to ICPE’s submission system on Easychair and conform to the ACM proceedings format. More specifically, the double column formats have to be used for all paper submissions.

At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register at the full rate, and at least one author (who may or may not be the same as the one who registered at the full rate) is required to be registered for the conference, attend the conference and present the paper. Presented papers will be published in the ICPE 2024 conference proceedings that will be published by ACM and included in the ACM Digital Library.
