About QEST
 

The International Conference on Quantitative Evaluation of SysTems (QEST) is the leading forum on evaluation and verification of computer systems and networks, through stochastic models and measurements, possibly incorporating non-deterministic behavior. Its roots lie in three formerly independent events:

  • the International Conference on Modeling Techniques and Tools for Computer Performance Evaluation (TOOLS),
  • the International Workshop on Petri Nets and Performance Models (PNPM),
  • the Joint International Workshop on Process Algebras and Performance Modeling and Probabilistic Methods In Verification (PAPM-ProbMIV)

Quantitative properties of interest include performance, reliability, availability, safety, security, survivability, correctness, timeliness, and efficiency. Topics of interest cover the areas of modelling formalisms and methodologies, measurements, analytical and numerical evaluation, simulation and verification, and theory of probabilistic systems, as well as case studies showing the role of quantitative evaluation in the design of systems including computer architectures, distributed and fault tolerant systems, communication systems, embedded systems, web-based systems, and safety-critical systems. Moreover, tools for supporting the practical application of research results in all the above areas are of special interest for QEST. In short, QEST aims to create a sound methodological basis for assessing and designing trustworthy computing systems and networks.

The 2004-2012 QEST Proceedings are available online in an IEEE Computer Society digital library; the 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016 Proceedings are available on Springer's website. In addition, the DBLP bibliography server hosts a page for QEST.
