Abstract

These proceedings are a collection of contributions to computer system performance, selected by the usual refereeing process from papers submitted to the symposium, as well as a few invited papers representing significant novel contributions made during the last year. They represent the thrust and vitality of the subject as well as its capacity to identify important basic problems and major application areas. The main methodological problems appear in the underlying queueing theoretic aspects, in the deterministic analysis of waiting time phenomena, in workload characterization and representation, in the algorithmic aspects of model processing, and in the analysis of measurement data. Major areas for applications are computer architectures, data bases, computer networks, and capacity planning.

The international importance of the area of computer system performance was well reflected at the symposium by participants from 19 countries. The mixture of participants was also evident in the institutions which they represented: 35% from universities, 25% from governmental research organizations, but also 30% from industry and 10% from non-research government bodies. This proves that the area is reaching a stage of maturity where it can contribute directly to progress in practical problems.
