Call For Papers

2003 International Symposium on Performance Evaluation of Computer and
Telecommunication Systems (SPECTS 2003)

               July 20-24, 2003
               Montreal, Canada

Submission Deadlines
Submission of Papers:  January 31, 2003.
Notification of Acceptance - April 25, 2003
Final Camera-Ready Submission - May 23, 2003

This annual international conference is a forum for professionals
involved in performance evaluation of computer and telecommunication
systems. Evaluation of computer systems and networks is needed at every
stage in the life cycle of the product including design, manufacturing,
sales/purchase, use, upgrade, tuning, etc. The discipline of performance

evaluation has progressed rapidly in the past decade, and it has now
begun to approach maturity. Significant progress has been made in
analytic modeling, simulation, and measurement approaches for
performance evaluation of computer and telecommunication systems.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Networking and Telecommunication Systems
- Internet Technology
      - Quality of Service (QoS)
