Over the last decades an incredible amount of resources has been devoted to
building ever more powerful supercomputers. However, exploiting the full
capabilities of these machines is becoming exponentially more difficult
each new generation of hardware. To help understand and optimize the
of massively parallel simulations the performance analysis community has
created a wide range of tools and APIs to collect performance data, such as
flop counts, network traffic or cache behavior at the largest scale.
this success has created a new challenge, as the resulting data is far too
large and too complex to be analyzed in a straightforward manner.
new automatic analysis approaches must be developed to allow application
developers to intuitively understand the multiple, interdependent effects
their algorithmic choices have on the final performance.
?This workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners from the
of performance analysis, application optimization, visualization, and data
analysis and provide a forum to discuss novel ideas on how to improve
performance understanding, analysis and optimization through novel
in scientific and information visualization.

Workshop Topics
- Scalable displays of performance data
- Interactive visualization of performance data
- Data models to enable data analysis and visualization
- Graph representation of unstructured performance data
- Collection and representation of meta data to enable fine grained
- Message trace visualization
- Memory and network traffic visualization
- Representation of hardware architectures

Paper Submission

We solicit two types of papers both covering original and previously
ideas: 8 page regular papers and 4 page short papers. All papers must be
