                                                    CALL FOR PAPERS

The 6th Special Session on High Performance Computing for Application
Benchmarking and Optimization (HPBench 2019)
As part of the International Conference on High Performance Computing &
Simulation (HPCS 2019)

http://hpcs2019.cisedu.info/  or   http://conf.cisedu.info/rp/hpcs19
Dublin, Ireland


Benchmarking is an essential aspect of modern high performance computing
and computational science, and as such, it provides a means for quantifying
and comparing the performance of different computer systems.
With a large combination of aspects to benchmark, all the way from the
capability of a single core, to cluster configuration, and to various
software configurations, the benchmarking process is more of an art than
science. However, the results of this process drive 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 evolutions, 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.

Papers Due:                         1 April 2019 - Extended
