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: 


Workshop format:

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.



The University of Warwick is sited on the southern side of Coventry where the city meets the County of Warwickshire, the University is the place of study for 17,904 undergraduate and postgraduate students and employs more than 3,800 staff across a range of University departments.

Warwick offers a green, landscaped campus with everything you need (shops, banks, bars, restaurants, swimming pool, squash courts etc.) close to hand. A short walk takes you from the high-quality, purpose built, on-campus accommodation to the meeting rooms, labs and library. There is excellent on-campus entertainment including the largest Arts Centre outside London which houses theatres, a concert hall, cinemas and an art gallery.

It is very easy to get to the campus:

By air: the main campus is about 20 minutes from Birmingham International Airport;
By train: the University is best reached (a short taxi ride) from Coventry railway station. Coventry is about 1 hr 15 minutes from London Euston.
By car: From the North: M1, M69, follow the by-pass routes marked Warwick (A46), then follow  the signs to the University. Or: M6, A446, A45, then follow the signs to the University.

From the South: M1, M45, A45 or M40, A46, follow signs to University.

From the East: Join the M1, then follow directions as from North or South.

From West: M5, M42, A45, then follow signs to University.

For more information on travel see the main University of Warwick web site.
