The 5th ACM/SPEC International Conference on Performance Engineering (ICPE 2014) has named three world-renown researchers of computing performance -- Toyotaro Suzumura of IBM Research (Tokyo), Petr Tuma of Charles University (Czech Republic) and Xiaoyun Zhu of VMware (U.S.) -- as its keynote speakers.
ICPE 2014 is a joint meeting of the ACM Workshop on Software and Performance (WOSP) and the SPEC International Performance Evaluation Workshop (SIPEW). The conference will be held March 23-26, 2014 in Dublin, Ireland.
Toyotaro Suzumura is a leading researcher of highly scalable graph search algorithms on supercomputers. His team is working on a billion-scale agent simulation platform that could make a significant contribution to building smarter cities and solving a wide realm of social and business problems.
Petr Tuma leads a research group that has made major contributions to performance evaluation in areas such as middleware testing, regression benchmarking and measurement accuracy. His team's research on processor cache performance has won them the SPEC Kaivalya Dixit Award in 2009 and the Best Student Paper at ICPE 2012.
Xiaoyun Zhu develops automated resource and performance management solutions for virtualized datacenters and applications in cloud environments. She holds 19 patents and has co-authored more than 50 research papers on performance-related topics. Zhu received the Best Paper award at RTSS 2008 and ICAC 2011.
"We're honored to have three keynote speakers with such respected bodies of research," says Walter Binder from the University of Lugano, Switzerland, and program co-chair for ICPE 2014.
ICPE 2014 will address timely issues such as big data, cloud and mobile computing, virtualization, and trade-offs between performance and energy consumption. For more information, visit http://icpe2014.ipd.kit.edu/call_for_papers/.
