REMINDER AND CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

SPECTS 2000

Symposium on Performance Evaluation of Computer and Telecommunication Systems

16-20 July 2000 - Vancouver, BC, Canada

This annual international conference is a forum for professionals involved in performance evaluation of computer and telecommunication systems. Evaluation of computer systems and networks is needed at every stage in the life cycle of the product including design, manufacturing, sales/purchase, use, upgrade, tuning, etc. The discipline of performance evaluation has progressed rapidly in the past decade, and it has now begun to approach maturity. Significant progress has been made in analytic modeling, simulation, and measurement approaches for performance evaluation of computer and telecommunication systems.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • ATM simulation

  • Wireless systems

  • High-speed networking

  • Parallel and distributed simulation

  • Teletraffic

  • Mobile networks/computing

  • Client/server

  • Parallel and distributed computing

  • High-performance computing

  • Adaptive communications

  • Electronic commerce

  • UMTS/IMT-2000 systems

  • Multimedia communications

  • Verification and validation

  • Performance tools and methodologies

  • Neural networks and fuzzy logic applications to high performance computing/networking

  • Microprocessors/microcomputers

  • Quality of service (QOS)

  • Memory systems

  • Software evaluation and testing

  • Hardware and software monitors

  • Interconnection networks

  • Optical networks

  • Multimedia systems

  • Network protocols

  • Network management

  • Performance optimization

  • Security and authentication

  • Workload and traffic characterization

  • Scientific computing algorithms

  • High performance I/O

  • Scalability studies

  • Reconfigurable computing

  • Web-based applications

Editor's note: Intending participants should contact organisers first.
