Performance evaluation

Topic 2

Description

Parallel computing enables solutions to computational problems that are impossible on sequential systems due to their limited performance. To meet this objective, it is critical that users can both measure performance on a given system and predict the performance for other systems. Authors are invited to submit papers presenting all fields of performance modeling, evaluation, prediction, measurement, benchmarking, and visualization for parallel and distributed applications and architectures. This workshop covers all aspects of techniques, implementations, tools, standardization efforts, and characterization and performance-oriented development of distributed and parallel applications. Of particular interest are tools and systems that work with large-scale applications or large numbers (hundreds to thousands) of processors. In addition, approaches to understand memory system performance and storage system performance are encouraged.
