Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this CfA.
Please share the announcement below with those who may be interested.


Workshop of the
Virtual Institute - High Productivity Supercomputing (VI-HPS)
in collaboration with the
German Priority Programme "Software for Exascale Computing" (SPPEXA)




Supercomputing Conference (SC) 2013

November 18th, 2013
Denver, Colorado, USA


Extended submission deadline: July 15th, 2013

You are cordially invited to submit one page abstract about relevant and
unpublished work to the Extreme-Scale Programming Tools workshop to be held
at Supercomputing Conference 2013. The Workshop aims at repeating the
success of the predecessor workshop held at SC12. Selected authors will be
invited to give a 15 minutes talk followed by 5 minutes discussion. The
slides will be made public on the workshop website, however no proceedings
are planned.

Workshop abstract:

As we approach exascale, architectural complexity and severe resource
limitations with respect to power, memory and I/O, make tools support in
debugging and performance optimization more critical than ever before.
However, the challenges mentioned above also apply to tools development
and, in particular, raise importance of topics, such as automatic tuning
and methodologies for exascale tools-aided application development. This
workshop will serve as a forum for application, system, and tool developers
to discuss the requirements for future exascale-enabled tools and the
roadblocks that need to be addressed on the way. We also highly encourage
application developers to share their experiences with using the tools.

The workshop is organized by the Virtual Institute - High Productivity
Supercomputing in collaboration with the German Priority Programme
"Software for Exascale Computing" (SPPEXA). The event will also focus on
the community-building process necessary to create an integrated
tools-suite ready for an exascale software stack.

Workshop topics:

* Programming Tools, for instance, Performance Analysis and Tuning Tools,
Debuggers, IDEs
* Methodologies for Performance Engineering
* Tool Technologies Tackling Extreme-Scale Challenges, such as Scalability,
Resilience, etc.
* Tool Infrastructures
* Application Developer Experiences with Programming Tools

Submission details:

Please submit the title and one page abstract until July 15th, 2013 using
the following link:


Travel support:

A limited amount of travel grants will be awarded to the participants
selected based on the submitted abstracts with preference to be given to
SPPEXA doctoral candidates, early-career and female researchers. The travel
grants cover a flight in 2nd class and the SC workshop fee (in total not
more then 1300 USD). Applications should be submitted to
oleynik at in.tum.deand mention whether any of the preference criteria
mentioned above apply.
Please also provide an estimate of the required travel support.
