Call for Paper
Second Workshop on Software Engineering for Parallel Systems (SEPS)
(Co-located with SPLASH 2015)
October 27, 2015, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States

General Scope:
The increased complexity of parallel applications on modern parallel platforms (e.g. multicore/manycore, distributed or hybrid) requires more insight into development processes, and necessitates the use of advanced methods and techniques supporting developers in creating parallel applications or parallelizing and reengineering sequential legacy applications. SEPS 2015 aims to advance the state of the art in different phases of parallel software development, covering software engineering aspects such as requirements engineering and software specification; design and implementation; program analysis, profiling and tuning; testing and debugging.
Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Process models for parallel software development
* Requirement engineering of parallel software
* Design and build of parallel programs
* Parallel design patterns
* Parallel software architectures
* Modeling techniques for parallel software
* Parallel programming models and paradigms
* Profiling and program analysis
* Dynamic and static analysis
* Refactoring and reengineering for parallelism
* Performance tuning and auto-tuning
* Energy-efficient parallel computing
* Testing and debugging of parallel applications
* Tools and environments for parallel software development
* Case studies and experience reports

Paper Submission: Papers submitted to SEPS 2015 must not have been published or simultaneously submitted anywhere else. Accepted papers will be published as formal proceedings in the ACM Digital Library. Contributions should be submitted electronically in PDF format via EasyChair, and must follow the SIGPLAN proceedings style.

The workshop welcomes two types of submissions:
* Original, unpublished regular papers on current research (10 pages)
* Industrial papers and tool presentations (short papers, 4 pages)

Submission link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=seps2015

Publication: All accepted papers will be published in as formal proceedings in the ACM Digital Library.

Registration: Authors of accepted papers are expected to register and present their papers at the Workshop.

Important Dates:
Paper submission (extended): 16 Aug. 2015 
Acceptance notification: 7 Sep. 2015
