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 2021 will be held
March 28 through 30, 2021 in Stony Brook, NY. Authors are invited to
submit extended poster abstracts encompassing ongoing or late breaking
research, tools or benchmarks in any of the following fields:

* 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 and performance analysis of commercial and experimental hardware
  * Multithreaded, 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 and performance analysis of emerging workloads and software
  * Software written in managed languages
  * Virtualization, containers, and consolidation workloads
  * Internet-sector workloads
  * Embedded, multimedia, games, telepresence
  * Deep learning and convolutional neural networks
  * Environmentally friendly (green) computing

* Application and system code tuning and optimization

* Confirmations or refutations of important prior results

In addition to ongoing or late breaking research, the conference is an
ideal forum to publicize new tools and benchmarks to the community.
These extended poster abstracts, 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. See http://www.ispass.org for submission details.

* Extended poster abstract submission: February 22, 2021
* Notification: March 1, 2021
* Conference: March 28-30, 2021

Submission instructions
We will post submission instructions shortly at http://ispass.org/ispass2021.

Please make sure that your submission satisfies all the requirements
listed below.

* The extended poster abstract must be original material that has not
been previously published in another conference or journal, nor is
currently under review by another conference or journal. Note that you
may submit material presented previously at a workshop without
copyrighted proceedings.
* The content of the submission is limited to two (2) 8.5"x11"
single-spaced double-column pages using 10 pt or larger font,
excluding references. Submissions that exceed the length limit or
deviate from the formatting requirements may be rejected without
* References must list all authors for any reference with fewer than
10 co-authors. Complete author lists facilitate the review process.
* Submissions must be anonymous. Please do not omit references to
provide anonymity, as this leaves the reviewer unable to grasp the
context. Instead, if you reference your own work, do it in third
person, as if you were referencing someone else's research.
* Your submission must be formatted in such a way that it is clear to
understand (including plots and diagrams) with a black-and-white
* The extended poster abstract must be submitted in PDF format. We
cannot accept any other format, and we must be able to print the
document just as we receive it.
* We strongly suggest that you use only the four widely-used printer
fonts: Times, Helvetica, Courier, and Symbol.
* You may use IEEE Conference templates
as long you use the conference version of the template and follow the
formatting requirements above.
