2008 International Symposium on Performance Evaluation of Computer and Telecommunication Systems

June 16-18, 2008, Edinburgh, UK

SPECTS 2008 is over! See you at SPECTS 2009!

This annual international conference is a forum for professionals involved in performance evaluation of computer and telecommunication systems. Performance evaluation of computer systems and networks has progressed rapidly in the past decade and has begun to approach maturity. Significant progress has been made in analytic modeling, simulation, and measurement approaches for performance evaluation of computer and telecommunication systems.

Networking and Telecommunication Systems

Computer Systems

Tools, Methodologies and Applications

Special Sessions

1. Bio-inspired Wireless Networks


  • Martin Drozda, FG Simulation und Modellierung, Computer Science Dept., Leibniz Univ. of Hannover, Hannover, Germany
  • Jonathan Timmis, Dept. of Computer Science and Dept. of Electronics, Univ. of York, Heslington, York, UK

Scope and topics

With the increasing complexity of wireless networks, the task of network management is becoming more and more difficult to handle. Wireless networks are becoming too complex for even the most skilled system integrators to install, configure, and maintain. [Read more]

Camera-Ready Submission

The SPECTS 2008 papers will be electronically published by IEEE Xplore. This means that accepted papers must exactly fulfil the IEEE requirements regarding the final submitted version. Papers that do not pass the IEEE PDF eXpress checklist will be excluded from the conference and the proceedings. The maximum length is 8 pages. Extra pages will be charged extra fees.

Authors must submit their papers as a PDF file ensuring that they perfectly match the IEEE requirements. In order to facilitate this process the SPECTS 2008 conference will provide authors of accepted papers with access to the IEEE PDF eXpress facility. By using this tool authors can easily generate an IEEE Xplore-compatible PDF version of their paper.

In order to properly submit the camera-ready version, authors must follow these three steps:

An additional condition for the inclusion of a paper in the conference is the registration of at least one of the authors and the submission of the copyright form (submission by fax is preferred). Early registration deadline is 15 May 2008. Additional information on these extra conditions will be made available here soon.
