Abstract:   Understanding the performance characteristics of computer programs has been the subject of intense research over several decades. The growing heterogeneity, parallelism, and general complexity of computer architectures have made this venture more and more challenging. Numerous approaches provide insights into different aspects of performance; they range from resource-based analytical modeling of single loops to complex statistical models or machine learning concepts that deal with whole groups of full applications in production environments. In recent years, the energy consumption aspects of computing have received attention due to rising infrastructure costs and operational boundary conditions, adding even more complexity to the model-building process. This workshop wants to bring together experts in performance modeling and related fields, such as modeling tools, model-guided code optimization, systems characterization, and future architectures, to present their latest research. We explicitly want to address all layers of hardware from the core up to the exascale level, and all layers of software from the OS to large-scale applications.

Targeted Audience
HPC professionals, academics, and students who want to get an overview of the state of the art in performance modeling techniques and derived activities, such as energy reduction and model-supported code optimization.
