Quantitative aspects of computation are important and sometimes essential in
characterising the behavior and determining the properties of systems. They
are related to the use of physical quantities (storage space, time, bandwidth,
etc.) as well as mathematical quantities (e.g. probability and measures for
reliability, security and trust). Such quantities play a central role in
defining both the model of systems (architecture, language design, semantics)
and the methodologies and tools for the analysis and verification of system
properties. The aim of this workshop is to discuss the explicit use of
quantitative information such as time and probabilities either directly in the
model or as a tool for the analysis of systems.

In particular, the workshop focuses on:

* the design of probabilistic, real-time, quantum languages and the
  definition of semantical models for such languages

* the discussion of methodologies for the analysis of probabilistic and
  timing properties (e.g. security, safety, schedulability) and of other
  quantifiable properties such as reliability (for hardware components),
  trustworthiness (in information security) and resource usage (e.g.,
  worst-case memory/stack/cache requirements)

* the probabilistic analysis of systems which do not explicitly incorporate
  quantitative aspects (e.g. performance, reliability and risk analysis)

* applications to safety-critical systems, communication protocols, control
  systems, asynchronous hardware, and to any other domain involving
  quantitative issues
