2nd IEEE Workshop on Performance Evaluation of Communications in
Distributed Systems and Web based Service Architectures (PEDISWESA’10)

RIccione, Italy, June 22 – 25, 2010

In conjunction with the 15th IEEE Symposium on Computers and Communications (IEEE ISCC’10)




Performance evaluation is still a topic that attains a lot of attention in both distributed
and mobile systems as well as Web based services architectures. Due to the recent
advances in internet based applications as well as distributed and mobile communication systems, we are witnessing a variety of new technologies. However, these systems
are becoming very large and complex at the same time. Several challenges remain to be
resolved before these systems become a commodity. Guaranteeing QoS and provisioning
of web-based systems as well as distributed and mobile systems and evaluating their
communication performance represent among the challenging problem in the design of
these systems. Quantitative analysis can be very difficult and may be intractable because
of the state space explosion. New methods and tools have recently emerged for these
kinds of complex systems, such as Stochastic Automata Networks, Stochastic bounds, PEPA, just to mention a few.
This workshop focuses on the performance evaluation of both distributed and mobile
systems, as well as Web based services architectures using both analytical methods
and simulation studies. Authors are encouraged to submit full papers presenting new
research related to QoS and communication performance evaluation of these systems. Submitted papers must not have been previously published elsewhere nor currently under review in any another conference or journal.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
· Communication performance evaluation of distributed and mobile systems
· Performance evaluation of distributed and web-based systems · Measurement, analysis, modeling · Tools and software for performance evaluation · Simulation and measurements techniques · QoS for Web services architectures · Services Web composition · Quantitative analysis · Stochastic comparisons · Network Protocols design for Web service devices · Routing optimization · Bandwidth management This workshop focuses upon the QoS and communication performance analysis, methods
and modeling of distributed systems and Web based services architectures. Workshop and Program Co-Chairs
