See the message from the CMG Program Chair below. And yes: load and stress testing, benchmarking, performance optimization, software performance engineering, resource management, capacity analysis are among the major topics for the conference.


The CMG'08 conference committee is delighted to announce that they are now accepting abstracts for papers and workshops for the 2008 conference to be held in Las Vegas in December 2008.

As always, we welcome papers on the cutting edge of measurement and performance analysis. But such breakthroughs only happen a couple of times in a decade. What we'd particularly like are papers which focus on examples of how techniques were used to solve real problems on real systems. If you've had experience solving a real problem, why not share it with the rest of us?
