Modern software engineering is getting increasingly complicated. The ability 
to monitor and analyze HPC applications and infrastructure's performance is 
imperative for the future of improvement, design, and maintenance. In the 
current era, the writing and maintenance of these applications have ceased to 
be the job solely of computer scientists and have grown to encompass a wide 
variety of experts in mathematics, science, and other engineering 
disciplines. Many developers from these disciplines rely increasingly on the 
tools created by computer scientists to analyze and optimize their code, 
which shows that there's a need for a forum to work together.


We are pleased to announce the 1st Workshop on Performance EngineeRing, 
Modelling, Analysis, and VisualizatiOn STrategy (PERMAVOST'21). PERMAVOST 
aims to bridge application developers and domain scientists with end users of 
performance analysis tools. We are gathering performance engineering, 
analysis, and visualization in a workshop to fill in the gaps in various 
topics such as:

- Key metrics, patterns, and performance pitfalls including the strategies to 
recognize and use the performance information to improve the applications
- Facing challenges that are coming from the new computing architecture, 
programming paradigm, and various scale of data that needs to be processed 
- Research needs to use modern principles of usability design integrated 
inside performance analysis tools to better aid its users
- Analysis and methodology that can be utilized and understood for users with 
various HPC knowledge spectrum

Call for papers
PERMAVOST solicits papers with encompass any of the following topics of 
* Performance analysis and modelling on the real world applications
* Data visualization in high level performance analysis
* Inefficiencies in programming patterns or computing architecture
* Patterns, anomaly detection, and performance characterization in HPC 
* Performance engineering strategies and use cases.
* Analyzing application performance in Cloud environment and other ubiquitous 
* Machine learning aided performance analysis

Paper formatting and proceedings
We accept full papers from 6 to 8 pages including all text, figures and 
references. All submitted papers should be formatted using the ACM Master 
Template (https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template) with sigconf 
format and must be submitted in PDF format. Only web-based submissions are 
allowed via PERMAVOST 2021 EasyChair 

We use single-blind reviewing process with 3 reviews per paper.

Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceeding as part of the 
ACM Digital Library

Jesus Labarta - Barcelona Supercomputing Center
Radita Liem - RWTH Aachen University
