Workshop on Challenges in Performance Methods for Software Development (WOSP-C 2015)

WOSP-C 2015 web site:


This one-day workshop will explore the new challenges to product performance that have arisen due to changes in software and in the development process. For example, faster development means less time for performance planning, the need for scalability and adaptability increases the pressure while introducing new sources of delay in the use of middleware, model-driven engineering, component engineering and software development tools offer opportunities but their exploitation requires effort and carries risks.
The workshop will seek to identify the most promising lines of research to address these challenges, through a combination of research and experience papers, vision papers describing new initiatives and ideas, and discussion sessions. Papers describing new projects and approaches are particularly welcome. As implied by the title, the workshop will consider methods usable anywhere across the life cycle, from requirements to design, testing and evolution of the product. There will be sessions which combine papers on research/experience/vision with substantial discussion on issues raised by the papers or the attendees. About a third of the time will be devoted to discussion on identifying the key problems and the most fruitful lines of future research.
