High performance computing (HPC) is no longer confined to universities 
and national research laboratories, it is increasingly used in industry 
and in the cloud. Users need to be able to evaluate what benefits HPC 
can bring to their companies, what type of computational resources would 
be best for their workloads and how they can evaluate what they should 
pay for these resources. Recent general adoption of machine learning has 
motivated migration of HPC workloads to cloud data centers, and there is 
a growing interest by the community in performance evaluation in this 
area, especially for end-to-end workflows. Benchmarking has typically 
involved running specific workloads that are reflective of typical HPC 
workloads, yet with the growing diversity of workloads, theoretical 
performance modeling is also of interest to allow for performance 
prediction given a minimal set of measurements. The workshop will be 
composed of submitted papers, invited talks, and a panel composed of 
representatives from the industry.

We invite novel, unpublished research paper submission within the scope 
of this workshop. Paper submission topics include, but are not limited 
to, the following areas:
  * Multi-, many-core CPUs, GPUs, hybrid system evaluation
  * Performance, power, efficiency, and cost analysis
  * HPC, data center, and cloud workloads and benchmarks
  * System, workload, and workflow configuration and optimization


Authors are invited to submit work as regular paper (up to 8 pages 
including references). All papers must be prepared in ACM Conference 
Format using the 2-column acmart format and SIGPLAN proceedings 
templatem, available at the following url:


The submitted work shall be in the English language, not be under 
consideration elsewhere, and will be peer-reviewed by the technical 
program committee (TPC). The submitted manuscripts should not include 
author names and affiliations, as a double-blind review process will be 

All submissions must be made electronically through the submission site:



All accepted papers will be indexed and published in the ACM Digital 
Library after the workshop.
