is the coordinator of the project.
The research teams participating to
the project were:
- the CWI in Amsterdam, resp. Onno Boxma
- the University of Erlangen, resp. Ulrich Herzog
- the Imperial College in London, resp. Peter Harrison
- the MISTRAL
project of INRIA in Sophia-Antipolis, resp.
- the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, resp. Isi Mitrani
- the University of Paris 5, resp. Erol Gelenbe
- the Universiy of Zaragoza, resp. Manuel Silva
- the University of Torino, resp. Gianfranco Balbo
The main objectives of the project were to define, develop and promote a
methodologiy for modeling and evaluating the performances of parallel and
distributed systems, integrating in the process the software and architectural
project started in October 1992, and lasted three years.
It held seven workshops:
- in Sophia-Antipolis (November 1992), on stochastic Petri Nets,
- in Erlangen (March 1993), on formalisms for performance evaluation of
- in Torino (September 1993), on analytical methods for solving performance
- in London (April 1994),
- in Newcastle (October 1994),
- in Paris (March 1995), and
- in Zaragoza (October 1995).
The QMIPS project went through two intermediate reviews, the first one
in Brussels, October 1993, and the second one in Newcastle, October 1994.
It concluded with its final review, in Zaragoza, October 1995.
