Useful INFORMATION PACKET for conference attendees
3rd International Conference on the Quantitative Evaluation of SysTems (QEST) 2006
  QEST 2006 will be held September 11-14, 2006, at the University of California, Riverside.

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.

Quantitative properties of interest include performance, reliability, availability, safety, security, survivability, correctness, timeliness, and efficiency.

Topics of interest cover the areas of modeling 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 to QEST, thus tool papers are sought.

In short, QEST aims to create a sound methodological basis for assessing and designing trustworthy computing systems and networks.
