     5th International Workshop on Performance Modeling, 
               Benchmarking and Simulation of 
              High Performance Computer Systems 

  held as part of SC14, New Orleans, LA, November 2014


The PMBS14 workshop is concerned with the comparison of 
high-performance computing systems through performance modeling, 
benchmarking or through the use of tools such as simulators.

We are particularly interested in research which reports the 
ability to measure and make tradeoffs in software/hardware 
co-design to improve sustained application performance. We are 
also keen to capture the assessment of future systems, for 
example through work that ensures continued application 
scalability through peta- and exa-scale systems.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers, from 
industry and academia, concerned with the qualitative and 
quantitative evaluation and modeling of high-performance 
computing systems. Authors are invited to submit novel research 
in all areas of performance modeling, benchmarking and 
simulation, and we welcome research that brings together current
theory and practice. We recognize that the coverage of the term 
'performance' has broadened to include power consumption and 
reliability, and that performance modeling is practiced through 
analytical methods and approaches based on software tools and 

=== Topics of Interest ===

We encourage submissions in the following areas:

- Performance modeling, analysis, and prediction of applications
   and high-performance computing systems
- Novel techniques and tools for performance evaluation and 
- Advanced simulation techniques and tools
- Micro-benchmarking, application benchmarking and tracing
- Performance-driven code optimization and scalability analysis
- Verification and validation of performance models
- Benchmarking and performance analysis of novel hardware
- Performance concerns in software/hardware co-design
- Tuning and auto-tuning of HPC applications and algorithms
- Benchmark suites
- Performance visualisation
- Real-world case studies
- Studies of novel hardware such as Intel Xeon Phi co-processor 
   technology, NVIDIA Kepler GPUs and AMD Fusion APU

Work which examines similar topics will also be considered.

=== Submission Guidelines ===

Authors are invited to submit full papers with unpublished, 
original work of not more than 20 pages of single column text 
using single spaced fonts on pages of 8.5 x 11 inches (this 
limit includes all figures, content etc but does not include 
references). All papers should be formatted to use the LNCS 
manuscript and workshop/conference guidelines available at:

A separate Late-Breaking Research and Preliminary Techniques 
stream is also available for authors to submit 5-page papers 
describing initial research or early first-of-a-kind results 
(this page limit does not include references but includes all 
technical content and figures). These papers will be presented 
in a dedicated, interactive session at PMBS 14 enabling open 
discussion with industry and domain experts.

All accepted papers (subject to post-review revisions) will be 
published in the PMBS Workshop Proceedings by LNCS.

Authors of selected papers will also be invited to submit revised 
manuscripts for inclusion in special issues of two high 
performance computing journals (pending)

Papers should be submitted using EasyChair at:
