A critical challenge to design and management of today's computing
systems and networks is the ability to achieve service levels for
performance, power, and other objectives. Over the last five to ten years,
formal methods in control theory have played an increasingly important role
in network and systems management research and, more recently, in
software products from IBM, Microsoft, and Hewlett Packard. These formal
techniques, which have been widely used in other areas of engineering for
many years, offer a model-based approach to scale computing systems
and networks that avoids many of the problems that result from ad hoc
techniques such as instabilities and inability to meet performance
FeBID is an annual international workshop that brings together researchers
and practitioners to present their new technologies, case studies, and
engineering methodologies for applying formal control techniques to
computing systems and networks. Areas addressed include, but are not
limited to, computer networks, Internet services, software performance,
middleware, virtualized environments, cloud computing, data center
resource management, power and cooling management.
News! In 2012, the FeBID workshop is being renamed as the International Workshop on Feedback Computing (Feedback Computing 2012).
