                              CALL FOR PAPERS

             Seventh International Workshop on Parallel Software
                  Tools and Tool Infrastructures (PSTI 2017)
                               Bristol, UK

                    Held in Conjunction with ICPP 2017,
           The 46th International Conference on Parallel Processing

                     Bristol, UK, August 14-17, 2017




The advent of multicore and manycore systems requires that programmers
understand how to design, write and debug parallel programs
effectively.  The increased complexity of multi-threaded parallel
programming on multicore platforms requires more insight into program
behavior, and necessitates the use of tools that can support
programmers in migrating existing software to multicore platforms, and
in writing new multi-threaded parallel software.  Programmers need
increasingly sophisticated methods for instrumentation, measurement,
analysis and modeling of applications.  Developers need both
sophisticated tools to support parallel software development, and an
extensible tool infrastructure that promotes integration of existing
and new tools, and simplifies information exchange and access.


Submission Deadline:          April 16, 2017 (extended)
Notification of Acceptance:      May 7, 2017
Final Papers Due:               May 26, 2017
Workshop Date:               August 14, 2017


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to

  * Static and dynamic analysis tools
  * Instrumentation, measurement, analysis, and modeling of applications
  * Analysis and visualization tools for assisting programmers with
    parallel software design
  * Active testing tools
  * Applications profiling and performance analysis
  * Data visualization and analysis infrastructures


Submissions should be formatted according to the IEEE standard
double-column format with a font size of 10 pt or larger and a maximum
of 10 letter-size (8.5" x 11") pages. Submissions must represent
original, substantive research results, not published or under review
elsewhere. At least one author of every accepted paper is required to
register and attend the conference in order for the paper to be
included in the final proceedings. Proceedings of the workshop will be
submitted to IEEE Xplore.
