Please help to announce it.  The deadline has been extended to August 15.

The Third International Workshop on Extreme Scale Computing
APplication Enablement - Modeling and Tools (ESCAPE) to be held in
conjunction with The 15th IEEE International Conference on High
Performance Computing and Communications (HPCC 2013) Zhangjiajie,
China, Nov. 13-15, 2013

In the foreseeable future, exa-scale computing systems are expected to
incorporate massive numbers of multi-core processors and accelerators,
such as the Graphics Processing Units (GPU) and co-processors, which
will pose critical challenges for enabling, optimizing and tuning
applications on these systems. There will be an increasingly urgent
need to have efficient performance modeling, tuning, and enablement
tools that address such challenges in extreme scale computing. The
goal of this workshop is to promote community-wide discussion
identifying the methodologies, analysis, and software tools, which can
enable effective and scalable performance evaluation for extreme scale
computing systems.

We seek submissions of papers that invent new techniques, introduce
new methodologies, propose new research directions and discuss
approaches for unsolved issues. In particular, contributions
presenting novel, original work in all areas of GPU from hardware
abstractions to specific applications in clouds are welcome. The
topics of this workshop are related to methodological aspects as well
as practical of the application enablement in extreme scale computing.
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to)

• Performance modeling for all aspects of extreme scale systems, e.g.,
cores, memory, interconnect and I/O, etc.
• Algorithms for self-tuning and -optimization of applications in
extreme scale computing
• Profiling and debugging tools for applications in extreme scale computing
• Performance, tracing and simulation tools with extreme scalability
• Methodologies and tools for extreme scale performance evaluation,
and verification
• Power efficiency
• Empirical and deployment studies of extreme scale performance tools:
challenges, techniques and lessons
• Researches on accelerator-based high performance computing, such as:
    o Accelerator architecture
    o Benchmarking/measurements/scalability
    o Compilers and operating systems
    o Sharing, scheduling, and migration
    o Fault tolerant computing
    o Debugging and profiling
    o Hybrid system for accelerators with OpenMP, Pthread, and MPI
