The IEEE International Symposium on Performance Analysis of Systems
and Software (ISPASS) provides a forum for sharing advanced academic
and industrial research work focused on performance analysis in the
design of computer systems and software. ISPASS 2020 will be held
April 5 through 7, 2020 in Boston, Massachusetts. Authors are invited
to submit previously unpublished work for possible presentation at the

Papers are solicited in fields that include the following:
* Performance and power evaluation methodologies
    - Analytical modeling
    - Statistical approaches
    - Tracing and profiling tools
    - Simulation techniques
    - Hardware (e.g., FPGA) accelerated simulation
    - Hardware performance counter architectures
    - Power, temperature, variability and/or reliability models for
computer systems
    - Microbenchmark-based hardware analysis techniques
* Foundations of performance and power analysis
    - Metrics
    - Bottleneck identification and analysis
    - Visualization
* Power/Performance analysis of commercial and experimental hardware
    - Multi-threaded, multicore and many-core architectures
    - Accelerators and graphics processing units
    - Memory systems, including storage-class memory
    - Embedded and mobile systems
    - Enterprise systems and data centers
    - Supercomputers
    - Computer networks
* Power/Performance analysis of emerging workloads and software
    - Software written in managed languages
    - Virtualization and consolidation workloads
    - Internet-sector workloads
    - Embedded, multimedia, games, telepresence
    - Deep learning and convolutional neural networks
* Application and system code tuning and optimization
* Confirmations or refutations of important prior results

In addition to research papers, ISPASS welcomes tool and benchmark
papers.  The conference is an ideal forum to publicize new tools and
benchmarks for the community.  These papers, which can detail tools
and benchmarks in any of the above fields of interest, will be judged
primarily on their potential impact and use, rather than on their
research contribution.

Important Dates
* Paper abstract submission: October 3, 2019, 11:59:59 PM Eastern Time
* Full submission: October 10, 2019, 11:59:59 PM Eastern Time
* Rebuttal: December 18-20, 2019
* Notification: January 14, 2020
* Conference: April 5-7, 2020
