This volume contains the papers presented at the SPEC International Perf- mance Evaluation Workshop held June 27–28 in Darmstadt, Germany. From 39 submitted papers, 16 were selected for publication. Each submitted paperwasreviewedbythreeProgramCommitteemembers.Theacceptedpapers cover a range of di?erent topics in performance evaluation with a good balance between theoretical and practicalcontributions. The ?nal workshopprogram,as well as this volume, is organized in ?ve subject areas: – Models for Software Performance Engineering – Benchmarks and Workload Characterization – Pro?ling, Monitoring and Optimization – Web Services and Service-Oriented Architectures – Power and Performance We were pleased to have Mor Harchol-Balter, Murray Woodside and Ulrich Marquard give two keynote speeches and an invited talk, respectively. Prof. Harchol-Balterspokeaboutherrecentworkonschedulingforserverfarms,while Prof. Woodside spoke about the relationship between performance models and performance data. Dr. Marquard gave a talk on the SAP standard application benchmarks.
