PMBS 2020 :: Call for Papers

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 use

of tools such as simulators.

We are particularly interested in research which reports the ability to measure

and make trade-offs in software/hardware co-design to improve sustained

application performance. We are also keen to capture the assessment of future

systems, for example through work that ensures continued application scalability

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 submit

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 broadened

to include power consumption and reliability, and that performance modeling is

practiced through analytical methods and approaches based on software tools and


We encourage submissions in the following areas:

* Performance modeling, analysis, and prediction of applications and HPC systems

* 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Authors are invited to submit full papers with unpublished, original work.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 initiative

dependencies (Artifact Description or Computational Results Analysis) are also

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 but

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 provide

an artifact description and an artifact evaluation appendix along with their

paper, describing the details of their software environments and computational

experiments to the extent that an independent person could replicate their
