CMG 2007 Call for Papers
This year performance (load, stress) testing will be a focus track at the CMG 2007 conference http://www.cmg.org/conference/cmg2007/index.html. It is the best conference, by my opinion, about performance-related topics. Below is the official text:
The Computer Measurement Group (CMG) calls for papers and presentations for the 33rd International Conference to be held in San Diego, California, December 2nd through 7th, 2007. The 2007 CMG conference will cover load and stress testing, benchmarking, performance optimization, software performance engineering, resource management, capacity analysis, simulation and analytic modeling, and cost management with special emphasis on Virtualization, System Oriented Architecture (SOA), IT Service Management and IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL), and the technology implications of globalization.

Final Camera Ready Copy Due September 14, 2007
Please note: The Paper Abstract Due date is the date to submit an abstract or a brief summarization of your paper. There is no acceptance process for abstracts; they simply indicate your intent to submit a paper. The Paper Due date is the deadline for submission to the referee process. Once a paper is refereed, accepted, and edited, the final version is due on the Final Camera Ready Copy Due date. This is also the date when the paper must have all updates, corrections or modifications approved and ready for publication in the CMG Proceedings.
CMG will also consider papers on topics and technologies that become available later in the year. Such papers will be considered for acceptance on a case-by-case basis by the Program Committee.
