Welcome to the 12th Workshop on Performance Evaluation of Communications in Distributed Systems and Web based Service Architectures (PEDISWESA) 2020

For more information about the venue and general conference information, please visit: ISCC 2020

This is the 12th Workshop on Performance Evaluation of Communications in Distributed Systems and Web based Service Architectures (PEDISWESA) 2020, orgnized in conjuntion with ISCC 2020

ISCC takes place annually, usually in the Mediterranean region, in locations such as Egypt, Greece, France, Tunisia, Portugal, Spain, Morocco, Italy, and Brazil. In 2020, the Symposium is going to happen in Rennes City, France.

PEDISWESA sessions will include presentations on new research results. Papers describing original work are invited in any of the computer and communications areas that the Call for Papers considers. Accepted papers will be included in the ISCC 2020 Conference Proceedings, which will be subject to independent peer-review procedures for quality, and may be eligible for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library. Merit, relevance, and originality will guide paper acceptance. Best Paper Award and Best Student Paper Awards will be presented.

Call for Papers

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, etc.

This workshop focuses 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):

  • Routing optimization
  • Quantitative analysis
  • Stochastic comparisons
  • Bandwidth management
  • Web services composition
  • Measurement, analysis, modeling
  • QoS for Web services architectures
  • Simulation and measurements techniques
  • Tools and software for performance evaluation
  • Network Protocols design for Web service devices
  • Performance evaluation of distributed and web-based systems
  • Communication performance evaluation of distributed and mobile systems
  • Performance of Blockchain
  • Performance evaluation of Vehicular networks
  • Connected and Autonomous Vehicles

Submission Guidelines:

Review manuscripts should describe original work and should be no more than 6 pages in the IEEE double column proceedings format including tables, figures and references. Download manuscript templates for IEEE conference proceedings <<here>>. Extended versions of selected best papers will be recommended for publication in a special issue of a prestigious international journal. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register to the conference and present the paper. Only registered and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings.

In ISCC 2020, all submissions must be done through EASYCHAIR in the link Here. Please contact the Technical Program Co-Chairs of the PEDISWESA 2020 for any questions regarding the submission of manuscripts. 

Accepted papers will be included in the ISCC 2020 Proceedings and will be submitted for inclusion to IEEE Xplore. The ISCC Proceedings have been indexed in the past by ISI, dblp and Scopus. This makes the ISCC conference one of the publication venues with very high visibility and impact in both Computer and Communications areas.
