Call for Participation - PMBS 2019

10th International Workshop on Performance Modeling,
Benchmarking and Simulation of High Performance Computer Systems

held as part of IEEE/ACM SC19, Denver, CO, November 2019

The PMBS19 workshop is concerned with the comparison of
high-performance computing systems through performance modeling,
benchmarking or through the use of tools such as simulators.

We are particularly interested in research which reports the ability
to measure and make trade-offs in software/hardware co-design to
improve sustained application performance. We are also keen to capture
the assessment of future systems, for example through work that
ensures continued application scalability through peta- and exa-scale

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers, from
industry and academia, concerned with the qualitative and quantitative
evaluation and modeling of high-performance computing systems. Authors
are invited to submit novel research in all areas of performance
modeling, benchmarking and simulation, and we welcome research that
brings together current theory and practice. We recognize that the
coverage of the term 'performance' has broadened to include power
consumption and reliability, and that performance modeling is
practiced through analytical methods and approaches based on software
tools and simulators.
