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.

Performance metrics of interest include response time, reliability, availability, safety, security, survivability, correctness, timeliness, and efficiency. Areas of interest include modelling formalisms and methodologies, measurements, analytical and numerical evaluation, simulation and verification, and theory of probabilistic, concurrent and non-deterministic behaviour. Also of interest are 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 and therefore tool papers are sought.

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

Joint CONFEST Statement on the Russian invasion of Ukraine

The Steering Committees and PC Chairs of CONFEST 2022 conferences strongly condemn the Russian invasion of Ukraine, a violation of international law, a horrifying crime and a threat to humanity. We express our solidarity with the Ukrainian people in their plight, and our deep respect to their courage in defending their country. We adhere to the statement of the European University Association (EUA). In view of disgraceful declarations of many Russian academic institutions, we support the decision, made by several international academic organizations, to freeze all institutional collaboration with the Russian academic establishment. Therefore we request academics from Russia, when submitting their work for CONCUR/FMICS/FORMATS/QEST 2022, to consider refraining from mentioning Russian affiliations and acknowledging support from Russian institutions. We know that many Russian academics are actively opposed to the war against Ukraine and we acknowledge their civil courage.
