Tracks and Submissions

Different acceptance criteria, submission deadlines and submission instructions apply for each submission category:


Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished papers that are not being considered in another forum. A variety of contribution styles for papers are solicited including: basic and applied research papers for novel scientific insights, industrial and experience papers reporting on applying performance engineering or benchmarks in practice, and work-in-progress/vision papers for ongoing innovative work. Different acceptance criteria apply based on the expected content of the individual contribution types.

Best papers and journal invitation: The highest quality papers, judged by multiple relevant factors, will be recognized with an award. Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their work to a journal.

At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register at the full rate, attend the conference and present the paper. Presented papers will be published in the ICPE 2018 conference proceedings that will be published by ACM and included in the ACM Digital Library. Authors are required to adhere to the ACM Policy and Procedures on Plagiarism as well as to the ACM Policy on Prior Publication and Simultaneous Submissions.

AUTHORS TAKE NOTE: The official publication date is the date the proceedings  are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks  prior to the first day of your conference. The official publication date affects  the deadline for any patent filings related to published work.  (For those rare conferences whose proceedings are published in the ACM Digital Library after the conference is over, the official publication date remains the first day of the conference.)
