Welcome to Toulouse

The 36th International Symposium on Computer Performance, Modeling, Measurements and Evaluation 2018 will be held in Toulouse, France. A city with unique architecture made of pinkish terracotta bricks, which earned it the nickname la Ville Rose ("the Pink City"). Click here to find out more about the city.

The IFIP Performance conference aims to bring together researchers interested in understanding and improving the performance of communication systems by means of state-of-the-art quantitative models and solution techniques. The Performance conference has a long-standing tradition and has followed an 18-month cycle for many years. Recently, the interval has been changed to one year. 

A new feature in this year's edition of the conference are workshops on emerging trends and hot topics. As part of the conference program, there will be four half-day workshops on Cryptocurrency Analysis, Performance and Modeling of Energy Systems, AI in Networks, and Performance evaluation of satellite networks.

The workshops will be held in the afternoon of the 6th of December, and attendance will be included in the registration of the main conference. For more details click here.

Young European Queueing Theorists (YEQT) workshop
The 12th edition of the Young European Queueing Theorists (YEQT) workshop will take place December 3-4 in the ENSEEIHT School of Engineering in Toulouse. It will be co-located with the international conference IFIP Performance 2018. Click here for more details on the workshop. Registration for the workshop is free, but compulsory.
