PMBS 2012 : 3rd International Workshop on Performance Modeling, Benchmarking and Simulation of High Performance Computer Systems
Call For Papers
Performance Modeling, Benchmarking and Simulation of High Performance Computer Systems (PMBS12)
This workshop is concerned with the comparison of high-performance computing systems through performance modeling, benchmarking or through the use of tools such as simulators.
We are particularly interested in research which reports the ability to measure and make tradeoffs in software/hardware co-design to improve sustained application performance. We are also keen to capture the assessment of future systems, for example through work that ensures continued application scalability through peta- and exa-scale systems.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers, from industry and academia, concerned with the qualitative and quantitative evaluation and modeling of high-performance computing systems. Authors are invited to submit novel research in all areas of performance modeling, benchmarking and simulation, and we welcome research that brings together current theory and practice. We recognize that the coverage of the term 'performance' has broadened to include power consumption and reliability, and that performance modeling is practiced through analytical methods and approaches based on software tools and simulators.
We encourage submissions in the following areas:
-Performance modeling, analysis, and prediction of applications and high-performance computing systems
-Novel techniques and tools for performance evaluation and prediction
-Advanced simulation techniques and tools
-Micro-benchmarking, application benchmarking and tracing
-Performance-driven code optimization and scalability analysis
-Verification and validation of performance models
-Benchmarking and performance analysis of novel hardware
-Performance concerns in software/hardware co-design
-Tuning and auto-tuning of HPC applications and algorithms
-Real-world case studies
Work which examines similar topics will also be considered.
Important Workshop Dates and Deadlines:
-September 9th 2012 (23:59 PST) - Full Paper Submissions

Authors are invited to submit full papers with unpublished, original work of not more than 8 pages of double column text using single spaced 10-point fonts on pages of 8.5 x 11 inches (this limit includes all figures, references, content etc). The paper should be formatted to use the ACM manuscript guidelines available at: http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates
A separate â€œLate-Breaking Research and Preliminary Techniquesâ€ stream is also available for authors to submit 4-page papers describing initial research or early first-of-a-kind results. These papers will be presented in a dedicated, interactive session at PMBS 12 enabling open discussion with industry and domain experts.
All accepted papers (subject to post-review revisions) will be published in a special issue of the ACM SIGMETRICS Performance Evaluation Review. SIGMETRICS-PER is sent to all SIGMETRICS members and indexed in the ACM Digital Library. Authors of accepted papers grant ACM permission to publish them in print and digital formats.
Authors of selected papers will also be invited to submit revised manuscripts for inclusion in The Computer Journal and IEEE Computer Architecture Letters.
Papers should be submitted using EasyChair at: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=pmbs12
