International Workshop on Advances in Model-based Performability
Evaluation of Cloud Systems (AMPECS 2013)
co-located with CloudCom 2013
5 December 2013, Bristol, United Kingdom

Please note that the workshop has been CANCELLED. We do apologise if this causes you any inconvenience whatsoever.

The First International Workshop on Advances in Model-based Performability Evaluation of Cloud Systems (AMPECS 2013) aims to explore advances in performability modelling and evaluation of Cloud systems.

Co-located with CloudCom 2013 at HP Labs in Bristol, AMPECS 2013 offers the unique opportunity for interaction between experts from the performability and Cloud communities, bringing together expertise from both areas and fostering the dissemination of new insights throughout both communities.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Scalability issues in modelling of Cloud systems
  • Fault-load and workload models, and their application
  • Modelling of highly dynamic systems
  • Case-studies detailing new approaches for Cloud evaluation
  • Markovian and non-Markovian modelling techniques for highly complex systems
  • Abstraction and approximation techniques for performability evaluation
  • Measurement studies of Cloud systems
  • Tools for model-based Cloud system evaluation
  • Interdependency modelling
  • Monitoring, modelling and evaluation of Cloud-based systems (e.g. content-delivery networks, distributed data storage)
