International Workshop on Representative Applications (WRAp 2017)

to be held in conjunction with IEEE Cluster 2017

Paper submission deadline: July 7th 2017

The International Workshop on Representative Applications is concerned
with the development and use of representative applications
(mini-applications or proxies) for all aspects of high-performance

The challenges posed by future systems: new architectures, programming
models, and machine scales; mean that representative applications as an
essential tool in the path towards exascale. These applications can be
used for acceptance testing, benchmarking, optimization evaluation, and
also investigating the performance of new architectures or programming
models. However, the development of such representative applications
must ensure they maintain some correspondence with their parent
application, so requires methods and tools for identifying the
performance critical aspects of a given code, or class of codes, and
also for verifying that the proxy effectively models the the target

The main aim of WRAp is to provide a venue in which the wide range of
disciplines involved in creating and using representative applications
can share important discoveries and lessons learned from these

Topics of Interest:

Programming model and language explorations
Design and generation of representative applications
New representative applications
Verification and validation of representative applications
Optimizations, including:
algorithmic improvements, and
code optimization
Scalability studies
Hardware studies
Case-studies of representative applications impacting their parent code
Work which examines similar topics will also be considered for inclusion
in the workshop.
