Call for Paper
Third International Workshop on Software Engineering for Parallel Systems (SEPS 2016)
(Co-located with SPLASH 2016)
November 1, 2016.  Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

General Scope:
The purpose of this workshop is to provide a stable forum for researchers and practitioners dealing with compelling challenges of the software development life cycle on modern parallel platforms. 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. We aim 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

The workshop welcomes the following two types of submissions:  
	- Original, unpublished regular papers on current research (max. 10 pages)
	- Short papers (max. 4 pages, without references) including:
		- Industrial and practical experiences 
		- Tool presentations/demonstration
		- Early results & novel ideas without a comprehensive/extensive evaluation
		- Preliminary and exploratory work with unconventional approaches or wild and crazy ideas
Especially, we encourage early-stage work, tool papers categorized in short papers on parallel systems explicitly targeted at interaction in SEPS 2016 workshop venue.   

Paper Submission: Papers submitted to SEPS 2016 must not have been published or simultaneously submitted anywhere else.
