UKPEW is the leading UK forum for the presentation of all aspects of performance modelling and analysis of computer and telecommunication systems. Original papers are invited on all relevant topics but papers on or related to the subjects listed below are particularly welcome. 
  • Stochastic modelling of computer systems and networks. 
  • Tools for all aspects of performance engineering from workload characterisation to operational analysis. 
  • Modelling paradigms including, but not limited to: Stochastic Process Algebras, Stochastic Petri Nets and Queueing Theory. 
  • Solution and simplification techniques for large Markov processes. 
  • Formal notations for performance modelling. 
  • Modelling and analysis of reliability and performance guarantees. 
  • Performance-oriented design methods. 
  • Novel techniques in computer system simulation. 
  • Case studies and industrial reports. 
  • Experience and evaluation of existing tools and techniques. 


This workshop is the primary event at which the UK performance community can get together to present and discuss their work. Whilst primarily aimed at UK based performance engineers, we also welcome contributions from researchers working in other countries and those whose interest in performance is derived from experience in other fields. It provides an ideal opportunity for academics, industrialists and PhD students to relate experience and to present both finished work and work in progress. The event has been organised to sustain the atmosphere of informality that previous UKPEW's have fostered. As well as sessions for presenting the papers submitted, it will also be possible to organise a session of short presentations of work in progress. Similarly, we will also be able to organise tool demonstrations, on request; please contact a member of the organising committee as early as possible with your requirements. 

University of Glasgow The workshop will take place in the Western Infirmary Lecture Theatre , which is located near to the Department of Computing Science at the University of Glasgow . It will start at about 9am on Wednesday 10 July, and finish at roughly 4.30pm on Thursday 11 July; there will be a workshop dinner on the Wednesday night. The University of Glasgow itself is situated at the West end of Glasgow (and is within 10 minutes of the city centre using the underground). 


Papers will be accepted on the basis of an extended abstract (3-6 pages) or draft paper (8-12 pages) which should be submitted to mohamed@dcs.gla.ac.uk no later than 30 April 2002. Electronic submission is preferred. Notification of acceptance will be given by  26 May 2002 together with instructions for the preparation of camera-ready copy. 

The presented papers will be published in proceedings, which will be available at the workshop for all delegates. The proceedings will be made available as an on-line publication of the Department of Computing Science. In order for the proceedings to be ready in time, the deadline for the acceptance of complete papers complying with the camera-copy instructions will be 15 June 2002.
