The HotCloudPerf workshop proposes a meeting venue for academics and practitioners, from experts to trainees, in the field of cloud computing performance. The new understanding of cloud computing covers the full computational continuum from data centers to edge resources to IoT sensors and devices. The workshop aims to engage this community and to lead to the development of new methodological aspects for gaining a deeper understanding not only of cloud performance, but also of cloud operation and behavior, through diverse quantitative evaluation tools, including benchmarks, metrics, and workload generators. The workshop focuses on novel cloud properties such as elasticity, performance isolation, dependability, and other non-functional system properties, in addition to classical performance-related metrics such as response time, throughput, scalability, and efficiency.
The HotCloudPerf workshop is technically sponsored by the Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation (SPEC)’s Research Group (RG) and is organized annually by the RG Cloud Group. HotCloudPerf has emerged from the series of yearly meetings organized by the RG Cloud Group, since 2013. The RG Cloud Group group is taking a broad approach, relevant for both academia and industry, to cloud benchmarking, quantitative evaluation, and experimental analysis.

Abstract due (updated)
Papers due (hard deadline, no extension)
Full-papers (6 pages including tables and figures but not references and appendices)
Short-papers (3 pages including tables and figures but not references and appendices)
Talk only (1-2 pages, not included in the proceedings).
The format of the submissions is single-blind and should follow the ACM format of the companion conference, ICPE.
All presented papers will have a good amount of time allocated for Q&A plus feedback. In addition, the presentation session will be wrapped up by a 10-15 min discussion.
Are you concerned about the quality of the presentation of your paper (i.e. whether it satisfies the standards for its structure, style of writing, etc...)? Please contact us at least two weeks prior to the submission deadline and we will provide feedback to you.
