                               Call for Papers

                6th Workshop on Productivity and Performance
          held in conjunction with Euro-Par 2013, Aachen, Germany
                            August 26 or 27, 2013


                Submission Deadline extended to June 10th 2013

Driven by current trends in microprocessor design, the number of 
processor cores and hardware threads available on modern supercomputers 
grows rapidly from generation to generation while the amount of memory 
per core will be decreasing. To keep pace, applications need to harness 
much higher degrees of parallelism while ensuring efficient use of the 
underlying computing resources, which can be highly concurrent many-core 
systems or heterogeneous accelerator architectures (or a combination 
of both). Additionally, applications must adhere to additional constraints, 
in particular with respect to power consumption (both peak and average 
power) and resilience.

Writing codes that run correctly and efficiently on such complex systems 
is extraordinarily challenging. At the same time, applications themselves 
are becoming more complex as well, which can be seen in emerging scale-
bridging applications, the integration of Uncertainty Quantification (UQ), 
or advances in algorithms. Combined, these trends place higher and higher 
demands on the application development process and thus require adequate 
tool support for debugging and performance analysis. The PROPER workshop 
will serve as a forum to present novel work on scalable methods and tools 
for high-performance computing. The workshop covers parallel program 
development and analysis, debugging, correctness checking, and performance 
measurement and evaluation. Further topics include the integration of tools 
with compilers and the overall development environment, as well as success 
stories reporting application performance, scalability, reliability, power 
and energy optimization, or productivity improvements that have been 
achieved using tools.

The workshop is supported by the Virtual Institute - High Productivity 
Supercomputing (VI-HPS), an initiative to promote the development and 
integration of HPC programming tools.

Workshop Topics

- Tools and tool approaches for parallel program development and analysis
- Infrastructure for building parallel program development 
  and analysis tools
- Correctness checking and program verification
- Performance and power measurements and evaluation
- Success stories about optimization or parallel scalability 
  achieved using tools

The hpc-announce mailing list has been setup to have a common mailing
list to share information with respect to upcoming HPC related
events. You are included in this mailing list based on your
participation or interest in a previous HPC conference or other event.

The purpose for providing a single mailing list is to allow
participants to easily identify such emails, and handle them
appropriately. Some options include:

1. If you feel that the number of such emails is too many, filter them
to less-frequently-read folders in your email client.

2. Change your subscription to a digest option
(https://lists.mcs.anl.gov/mailman/listinfo/hpc-announce) which will
consolidate emails sent that week into a single summary email.

3. Finally, if you do not wish to receive any emails from hpc-announce,
you can unsubscribe from the mailing list
(https://lists.mcs.anl.gov/mailman/listinfo/hpc-announce). Once
unsubscribed, we guarantee that you will not be added back in through
participation in a different HPC related conference or event. You will
need to send an email to hpc-announce-owner at mcs.anl.gov to be added
back on.

If you need help with any of the above, please email us at
hpc-announce-owner at mcs.anl.gov.
