Performance, Scalability and Availability

As the Web continues to evolve, performance, scalability, and availability remain important issues. This track seeks papers that address these issues for both traditional and emerging Web (e.g., Web 2.0) applications.

Papers that examine the performance, scalability and/or availability of any relevant Web-related topic are solicited. Such topics include, but are not restricted to, the following:

  • Availability
  • Caching and replication
  • Capacity planning and resource provisioning
  • Characterization of user experience and behaviour on the Web
  • Cloud computing and Software as a Service (SaaS)
  • Content and service delivery
  • Edge services
  • Improving the performance, scalability and availability of real-world Web systems
  • Internet streaming and multimedia
  • Load balancing and resource allocation
  • Monitoring and management of Web-based services
  • Overlay networks and content-aware routing
  • Performance modelling
  • Performance of peer-to-peer systems and services (e.g., TV, voice)
  • Quality of service and service level agreements (SLAs)
  • Workload characterization

Paper formatting requirements are provided on the Submission page.
