The IEEE International Symposium on Performance Analysis of Systems and Software provides a forum for sharing advanced academic and industrial research work focused on performance analysis in the design of computer systems and software. Authors are invited to submit previously unpublished work for possible presentation at the conference. Papers are solicited in fields that include the following:

      Performance and power evaluation methodologies

o Analytical modeling

o Statistical approaches

o Tracing and profiling tools

o Simulation techniques

o Hardware (e.g., FPGA) accelerated simulation

o Hardware performance counter architectures

o Power/Temperature/Variability/Reliability models for computer systems

o Micro-benchmark based hardware analysis techniques


      Performance and power analysis

o Metrics

o Bottleneck identification and analysis

o Visualization


      Power/Performance analysis of commercial and experimental hardware

o General-purpose microprocessors

o Multi-threaded, multi-core and many-core architectures

o Accelerators and graphics processing units

o Embedded and mobile systems

o Enterprise systems and data centers

o Supercomputers

o Computer networks


      Power/Performance analysis of emerging workloads and software

o Software written in managed languages

o Virtualization and consolidation workloads

o Internet-sector workloads

o Embedded, multimedia, games, telepresence

o Bioinformatics, life sciences, security, biometrics


      Application and system code tuning and optimization


      Confirmations or refutations of important prior results



In addition to research papers, we also welcome tool papers. The conference is an ideal forum to publicize new tools to the community. Tool papers will be judged primarily on their potentially wide impact and use than on their research contribution. Tools in any of the above fields of interest are eligible.
