Conference Program

The conference will consiste of a main three-day track, starting on Tuesday, Oct. 21, and ending on Thursday, Oct. 23, and a number of focused workshops on Monday, Oct. 20, and Friday, Oct. 24th.


In recent years, a range of performance evaluation methodologies and tools has been developed within disparate research communities for the purposes of evaluation, design, and model reduction. The aim of the Performance Evaluation Methodologies and Tools conference is to build bridges between these communities, bringing theory and practice together in order to:

  • compare and debate the complete range of performance evaluation methodologies and their implementation into tools
  • promote interdisciplinary flow of technical information among industry systems designers and researchers.
