PMBS 2020 :: Call for Papers :: Submissions now open

11th International Workshop on Performance Modeling,
Benchmarking and Simulation of High Performance Computer Systems

held as part of IEEE/ACM SC20, Atlanta, GA, November 2020



The PMBS20 workshop is concerned with the comparison of high-performance
computer systems through performance modeling, benchmarking or through the
of tools such as simulators.

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

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
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
to include power consumption and reliability, and that performance modeling
practiced through analytical methods and approaches based on software tools

We encourage submissions in the following areas:

* Performance modeling, analysis, and prediction of applications and HPC
* Novel techniques and tools for performance evaluation and prediction
* Advanced simulation techniques and tools
* Micro-benchmarking, application benchmarking and tracing
* Performance-driven code optimization and scalability analysis
* Verification and validation of performance models
* Benchmarking and performance analysis of novel hardware
* Performance concerns in software/hardware co-design
* Tuning and auto-tuning of HPC applications and algorithms
* Benchmark suites
* Performance visualization
* Real-world case studies
* Studies of heterogeneous architectures and many-core accelerators

Work which examines similar topics will also be considered.

=== Submission Guidelines ===

Authors are invited to submit full papers with unpublished, original work.
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
dependencies (Artifact Description or Computational Results Analysis) are
not included in the 10-page limit.

A separate Late-Breaking Research and Preliminary Techniques stream is also
available for authors to submit 5-page papers describing initial research or
early first-of-a-kind results (this page limit does not include references
includes all technical content and figures).

All accepted full-length papers (subject to post-review revisions) will be
published in the IEEE TCHPC Proceedings.

*************************** Journal Special Issue
* Authors of selected papers from 2019 and 2020 will also be invited to
* submit revised manuscripts for inclusion in a special issue of Concurrency
* and Computation: Practice and Experience

=== SC Transparency and Reproducibility Initiative ===

In line with the main Supercomputing conference, authors are asked to
an artifact description and an artifact evaluation appendix along with their
paper, describing the details of their software environments and
experiments to the extent that an independent person could replicate their
