CfP: 4th International Workshop on Visual Performance Analysis (VPA17)

Held in conjunction with SC17: The International Conference on High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis

Denver, CO, USA November 17, 2017

Submission Deadline: July 31, 2017

Over the last decades an incredible amount of resources has been devoted
to building ever more powerful supercomputers. However, exploiting the
full capabilities of these machines is becoming exponentially more
difficult with each new generation of hardware. To help understand and
optimize the behavior of massively parallel simulations the performance
analysis community has created a wide range of tools and APIs to collect
performance data, such as flop counts, network traffic or cache behavior
at the largest scale. However, this success has created a new challenge,
as the resulting data is far too large and too complex to be analyzed in
a straightforward manner. Therefore, new automatic analysis and
visualization approaches must be developed to allow application
developers to intuitively understand the multiple, interdependent
effects that their algorithmic choices have on the final performance.

This workshop will bring together researchers from the fields of
performance analysis and visualization to discuss new approaches of
applying visualization and visual analytics techniques to large scale

Workshop Topics:

* Scalable displays of performance data
* Data models to enable scalable visualization
* Graph representation of unstructured performance data
* Presentation of high-dimensional data
* Visual correlations between multiple data source
* Human-Computer Interfaces for exploring performance data
* Multi-scale representations of performance data for visual exploration

Paper Submission:

Solicit papers of up to 8 pages as well as 4 page short papers in
standard ACM format that focus on techniques in the intersection of the
two communities and either use visualization techniques to display large
scale performance data or that develop new visualization or visual
analytics methods that help create new insights.

All papers must be submitted through Easychair at:
