SSPA 2012 - International Workshop on Software and System Performance

June 15, 2012, Beijing, China (co-located with PLDI 2012)



Performance is one of the key properties of software and systems. For
example, responsiveness, throughput, and resource utilization are the three
key aspects of software and system performance. Modern software systems are
increasingly complex, being implemented upon layers of complicated
frameworks or technologies often with insufficient documentation, and being
distributed over wide-range regions, on heterogeneous platforms, and within
different administrative domains, posing challenges for offering
satisfactory performance.

This workshop is a forum for researchers and practitioners interested in
the intersection of compilers, programming languages, software engineering,
systems, high-performance computing, performance engineering, machine
learning, and data mining for addressing software and system performance.
The workshop focuses on developing and studying analytic technologies
(e.g., program analysis, statistical analysis, machine learning, data
mining, visualization) applied on various software or system artifacts
(e.g., requirements, designs, implementations, tests, program traces,
system logs) to address issues in software and system performance (e.g.,
responsiveness, throughput, and resource utilization).

We invite paper submissions (falling into the above-mentioned workshop
scope) of two kinds: (1) regular papers with page limit of 8 pages, and (2)
short papers with page limit of 4 pages. We solicit short papers falling
into two categories: formal short papers to appear in the proceedings, and
informal short papers that will not; authors choose the category at the
time of submission. Presentations of informal short papers are not
precluded for future publication at other conference venues or journals.


Paper submission deadline (regular papers and formal short papers):
March 28th, 2012
Paper submission deadline (informal short papers):    April 4th, 2012
Notification of acceptance:   April 28th, 2012
Camera-ready deadline:      May 12th, 2012
Workshop:    June 15, 2012

Note: All submission deadlines are 11:59 PM (Pago Pago, American Samoa) on
the dates indicated.


Submissions must be in ACM proceedings format, 9-point type, and may not
exceed 8 pages (all inclusive) for regular papers and not exceed 4 pages
for short papers. Word and LaTeX templates for this format are available
here (http://www.sigplan.org/authorInformation.htm). Submissions must be in
PDF, printable on US Letter and A4 sized paper.

Regular papers or formal short papers must describe unpublished work that
is not currently submitted for publication elsewhere as discussed here (

Submissions should be made via the workshop EasyChair submission site (

Each regular paper or formal short paper submission is evaluated based on
significance, originality, and clarity. Each informal short paper
submission is evaluated based on relevance and interest to the workshop
audience along with significance and clarity.

Accepted regular papers and formal short papers will have their accepted
paper published in the ACM proceedings and included in the ACM Digital
Library. These authors of accepted papers are required to sign an ACM
copyright release.
