p/>Call for Papers of QEST 2019

The 16th International Conference on Quantitative Evaluation of SysTems

will be held in Glasgow, UK, on September 9 - 12, 2019.

*Conference Highlights*

General Chair

- Gethin Norman, University of Glasgow, UK

Program Co-chairs

- Dave Parker, University of Birmingham, UK

- Verena Wolf, Saarland University, Germany

*Scope and Topics*

The International Conference on Quantitative Evaluation of SysTems

(QEST) is the leading forum on quantitative evaluation and verification

of computer systems and networks. Areas of interest include quantitative

specification methods, stochastic and non-deterministic models and

metrics for performance, reliability, safety, correctness, and security.

QEST is interested in both theoretical and experimental research. QEST

welcomes a diversity of modelling formalisms, programming languages and

methodologies that incorporate quantitative aspects such as

probabilities, temporal properties and other forms of non-determinism.

This includes work on the combination of quantitative evaluation and

verification with machine learning techniques. Papers may advance

empirical, simulation and analytic methods. Of particular interest are

case studies that highlight the role of quantitative specification,

modelling and evaluation in the design of systems. Systems of interest

include computer hardware and software architectures, communication

systems, cyber-physical systems, infrastructural systems, security

systems and biological systems. Papers that describe novel tools to

support the practical application of research results in all of the

above areas are also welcome.

*Special Issue*

Extended versions of the best papers will be considered for a fast-track

publication in a Special Issue of the ACM Transactions of Modelling and

Computer Simulation (

*Important Dates*

Abstract submission: 29 March 2019

Paper submission: 5 April 2019

Author notification: 7 June 2019

Final version due: 29 June 2019

Conference: 9-12 September 2019


All accepted papers (including tool demonstrations) must be presented at

the conference by one of the authors. The QEST 2019 proceedings will be

published in the Springer LNCS series and indexed by ISI Web of Science,

Scopus, ACM Digital Library, dblp, Google Scholar. All submitted papers

will be evaluated by at least three reviewers on the basis of their

originality, technical quality, scientific or practical contribution to

the state of the art, methodology, clarity, and adequacy of references.

QEST considers five types of papers:

- Theoretical: advance our understanding, apply to non-trivial problems

and be mathematically rigorous.

- Methodological and technical: describe situations that require the

development and proposal of new analysis processes and techniques.

- Application: describes a novel application, and compares with previous


- Tools: should motivate the development of the new tools and the

formalisms they support, with a focus on the software architecture and

practical capabilities.

- Tool demonstration: describe a relevant tool, as well as its features,

evaluation, or any other information that may demonstrate the merits

of the tool.

Submissions must be prepared in LaTeX, following Springer's LNCS



Submitted papers should not exceed 16 pages (4 pages for tool

demonstrations). Papers must be unpublished and not be submitted for

publication elsewhere. Authors of tool papers (both regular and

demonstration) must make their tools and input data available to

reviewers; reproducibility of results will be taken into account during

the evaluation process, and the conference will include a demo session.

Authors should present use cases, distinctive features, and

computational/memory requirements through motivating examples.

Theoretical background need not be presented in tool demonstration

papers; substantial improvements are required for existing tools. Papers

should be submitted electronically using the EasyChair online submission

system (
