100 Most Frequent Errors in Performance Evaluation

posted Oct 3, 2017, 12:06 PM by Tobias Hoßfeld   [ updated Oct 3, 2017, 12:07 PM ]

Call for Contributions
Contributions that report typical errors found in the literature related to performance evaluation in the communications and networking area are sought. The objective is to prepare an open source book containing 100 typical errors in the hope that such a book may help researchers and practitioners avoid these errors. The 100 errors are interesting for PhD students as well as bachelor and master students who are evaluating the performance of systems by means of measurements, simulations, experiments, or analytical approaches. Typical examples are the random generation of points in a circle or the simulation of non-stationary Poisson processes, see example pdf.

Submissions will be peer-reviewed. Authors are requested to use the latex template for their contributions. Contributions shall be between 2 and 6 pages long and include (a) description of question at hand, and associated problem, (b) illustrative description of the error, (c) description of one or several possible solutions. For submitting an article, please complete the online form and send the contribution via email to Please have a look at the list of errors if a similar contribution is already submitted. Accepted contributions will appear in an open source book.

ITC 28 in Würzburg

posted Dec 18, 2015, 4:59 AM by Tobias Hoßfeld   [ updated Dec 18, 2015, 5:00 AM ]

The evolution of communications and networking is changing the world we are living in. The digital connected world is triggered by the influence of computer science on telecommunication, the advent of the Internet and the massive deployment of mobile communications and optics, the appearance of collaborative networking and social networks, the ever-increasing speed and flexibility of new communication technologies, networks, user devices, and applications, and the ever-changing operational challenges arising from this development.

ITC 28 solicits original contributions that address the latest changes and developments in design, modelling, measurement, and performance evaluation of communication systems, networks, and services. ITC 28 is structured into eight different areas. The objectives in these areas include, among others, energy-efficiency and green IT, network security and privacy, QoS and QoE, and resilience.

We are happy that Nikhil Jain (Qualcomm Technologies) will give a keynote talk on Internet of Everything: Engineering Challenges and Opportunities.

Area 1: Smart cities and IoT (Alberto Leon-Garcia, Yanmin Zhu)
Area 2: Cloud services and networking (Arup Acharya, Patrick Lee)
Area 3: Mobile, wireless and 5G (Kin Leung, Thomas Hou)
Area 4: Next generation and future Internet architectures (Michael Zink, Thomas Zinner)
Area 5: Network and traffic management (Florin Ciucu, Peter Reichl)
Area 6: Network design and optimization (Thomas Bauschert, Eric Wong)
Area 7: Network measurements and analysis (Marco Mellia, Mark Squillante)
Area 8: Networked applications (Zhu Li, Lea Skorin-Kapov)

In addition, there will be a demo session across the areas.
Demonstration Session (Mark Berman, Michael Jarschel, Rick McGeer)
