The IEEE International Symposium on Performance Analysis of Systems and Software provides a forum for sharing advanced academic and industrial research work focused on performance analysis in the design of computer systems and software. Authors are invited to submit previously unpublished work for possible presentation at the conference. Papers are solicited in fields that include the following: Power/Performance Evaluation methodologies
Analytical modeling Statistical approaches Tracing and profiling tools Simulation techniques Hardware (e.g., FPGA) accelerated simulation Hardware performance counter architectures Power/Temperature/Variability/Reliability models for computer systems
Power/Performance analysis o Metrics o Bottleneck identification and analysis o Visualization Power/Performance analysis of commercial and experimental hardware
o General-purpose microprocessors o Multi-threaded, multi-core and many-core architectures o Accelerators and graphics processing units o Embedded and mobile systems o Enterprise systems and data centers o Supercomputers o Computer networks
Power/Performance analysis of emerging workloads and software
Software written in managed languages Virtualization and consolidation workloads Internet-sector workloads Embedded, multimedia, games, telepresence Bioinformatics, life sciences, security, biometrics Application and system code tuning and optimization Confirmations or refutations of important prior results
In addition to research papers, we also welcome tool papers. The conference is an ideal forum to publicize new tools to the community. Tool papers will be judged primarily on their potentially wide impact and use than on their research contribution. Tools in any of the above fields of interest are eligible.
