Call for Papers: 7th Workshop on Extreme-Scale Programming Tools
(ESPT 2018)


The 7th Workshop on Extreme-Scale Programming Tools will be held in
conjunction with SC18: The International Conference for High
Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis in Dallas, TX,
USA, on Friday, November 16, 2018.

Call for Papers:

The path to extreme computing keeps broadening: large scale systems
towards exascale and beyond, growing many core systems with deep
memory hierarchies and massively parallel accelerators are just a few
of the platforms we can expect. This trend will challenge HPC
application developers in their quest to achieve the maximum potential
that their systems have to offer, both on and across nodes. Factors
such as limited power budgets, heterogeneity, hierarchical memories,
shrinking I/O bandwidths, and performance variability will make it
increasingly difficult to create productive applications on future
platforms. To address these challenges, we need tools for debugging,
performance measurement and analysis, and tuning to overcome the
architectural, system, and programming complexities expected in these

At the same time, research and development progress for HPC tools
themselves faces equally difficult challenges: adaptive systems with
an increased emphasis on autotuning, dynamic monitoring and
adaptation, heterogeneous analysis and new metrics such as power,
energy and temperature require new methodologies, techniques, and
engagement with application teams. This workshop will serve as a forum
for HPC application developers, system designers and tool researchers
to discuss the requirements for tools assisting developers in
identifying, investigating and handling the challenges in future
extreme scale environments, both for highly parallel nodes and in
large-scale HPC systems.

The workshop is the seventh in a series of SC conference workshops
organized by the Virtual Institute - High Productivity Supercomputing
(VI-HPS), an international initiative of HPC researchers and
developers focused on programming and performance tools for parallel
systems. Workshop topics:

* Performance tools for scalable parallel platforms
* Debugging and correctness tools for parallel programming paradigms
* Program development tool chains (incl. IDEs) for parallel systems
* Methodologies for performance engineering
* Tool technologies for extreme-scale challenges (e.g., scalability,
  resilience, power)
* Tool support for accelerated architectures and large-scale
* Measurement and optimization tools for networks and I/O
* Tool infrastructures and environments
* Application developer experiences with programming and performance


Submissions are limited to 10 pages using 10pt fonts in the IEEE
format. The 10-page limit includes figures, tables, and your
appendices, but does not include references, for which there is no
page limit. Reproducibility initiative dependencies (Artifact
Description or Computational Results Analysis) are also not included
in the 10-page limit.

Papers must be submitted through the Supercomputing submission site. A
link is posted on the workshop website.


For ESPT 2018, we adopt the SC18 reproducibility intiative.
Participation in the reproducibility initiative is optional, but
highly encouraged. To participate, authors provide a completed
Artifact Description Appendix (at most 2 pages) along with their
submission. We will use the format of the SC18 appendix for ESPT
submissions. Refer to the workshop website for templates and more

Important Dates:

Submission deadline: July 23, 2018
Author notification: Sep 03, 2018
Camera-ready & Copyright form deadline: Oct 01, 2018
