(Selected high-quality papers from the PMEO-UCNS'08 workshop will 
appear in a Special Issue of the journal - International Journal of Parallel, 
Emergent, and Distributed Systems (IJPEDS), Taylor & Francis - 



7th International Workshop on Performance Modeling, Evaluation, and 
Optimization of Ubiquitous Computing and Networked Systems 

To be held in conjunction with IPDPS'08 (Supported by IEEE Computer 
Society in cooperation with ACM SIGARCH), 14 -18 April, 2008, Miami, 
Florida, USA



The performance modeling, evaluation, and optimization of ubiquitous 
computing and networked systems have been an important research 
topic over the past years and poses challenging problems that require 
new tools and methods to keep up with the rapid evolution and 
increasing complexity of such systems. 

This workshop will bring together scientists, engineers, practitioners, and 
computer users to share and exchange their experiences, discuss challenges, 
and report state-of-the-art and in-progress research on all aspects of 
performance modeling, evaluation, and optimization of ubiquitous computing 
and networked systems. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to: 

    -- Predictive performance models of ubiquitous computing systems 
    -- Predictive performance models of wired and wireless networks
    -- Performance measurement and monitoring tools 
    -- Tracing and trace analysis
    -- Simulation
    -- Analytical modeling
    -- Software tools for system performance and evaluation
    -- Automatic performance analysis 
    -- Performance comparison
    -- Performance of memory and I/O interconnect
    -- Performance of communication networks 
    -- Performance of mobile distributed systems
    -- Performance analysis and evaluation of ubiquitous computing and 
       networked applications
    -- Improvement in system performance through optimization and tuning
    -- Case studies showing the role of evaluation in the design of systems
