                                                    CALL FOR PAPERS
Special Session on High Performance Computing for Application Benchmarking
and Optimization
                                                        (HPBench 2018)
As part of the International Conference on High Performance Computing &
                                                         (HPCS 2018)

Benchmarking is an essential aspect of modern computational science, and as
such, it provides a means for quantifying and comparing the performance of
different computer systems.

With a large number of combinations of aspects to benchmark, all the way
from the capability of a single core to cluster configuration to various
software configurations, the benchmarking process is more of an art than
science. However, the results of this process drive the modern science and
are vital for the community to draw sensible conclusions on the performance
of applications and systems.

This special session focuses on research work aimed at benchmarking modern
parallel and distributed systems for addressing a number of real world
problems.  As such, contributions concerning the definition of new open
platforms, new benchmarks to match modern architectural evolution, studies
on the aspects of benchmarking different aspects of systems (from raw
runtime performance to energy consumption to energy consumed per data
movement) and mathematical foundations of benchmarking are sought.

**** TOPICS ****
The HPBench topics of interest include, but are not limited to
- Open Platforms for parallel and distributed application benchmarking and
- Benchmarking on the Cloud;
- Benchmarking of clusters and large-scale systems;
- Benchmarking of I/O;
- Benchmarking of energy and energy efficiency;
- Benchmarking of Web Services;
- Virtualization for distributed benchmarking;
- Data distribution for benchmarking;
- Performance results of benchmarks on modern platforms;
- Scalability aspects of benchmarking;
- Benchmarking of parallel business applications;
- Techniques, frameworks and results concerning the benchmarking of library
- Tools and frameworks for performance modelling systems and applications;
- Tools and frameworks for simulation, measurement and monitoring;
- Domain-specific benchmarks and applications (such as image processing,
pattern recognition, cryptography, biometrics, differential equation
solvers, signal processing and alike);
-Mathematical foundations of benchmarking, metrics and heuristics

You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above
and other topics related to benchmarking and high performance computing
systems, including applications and cloud computing for benchmarking.
Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted
elsewhere until it appears in HPCS proceedings, in the case of acceptance,
or notified otherwise. For Regular papers, please submit a PDF copy of your
full manuscript, not to exceed 8 double-column formatted pages per
template, and include up to 6 keywords and an abstract of no more than 400
words. Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Submission should
include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax
numbers, phone numbers, and all authors email addresses. Please, indicate
clearly the corresponding author(s) although all authors are equally
responsible for the manuscript. Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster papers
and posters (please refer to
for posters submission details) will also be considered. Please specify the
type of submission you have.  Please include page numbers on all
preliminary submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful

Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript to the special session paper
submission site at https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/HPBench2018.
Acknowledgement will be sent within 48 hours of submission.
