Workshop on Large-Scale System and Application Performance


In conjunction with the 18-th International Symposium on High
Performance Distributed Computing (HPDC-18)

Munich, Germany, June 9 or 10, 2009

*** Submission deadline: March 1, 2009 ***


Over the last decade, computer systems and applications in everyday use
have grown to unprecedented scales. Large clusters serving millions of
search requests per day, grids executing large workflows and parameter
sweeps consisting of thousands of jobs, and supercomputers running complex
e-science applications, have now hundreds of thousands of processing cores.
In addition, clouds are quickly emerging as a large-scale computing
infrastructure. Peer-to-peer systems and centralized video distribution
systems that dominate the internet and complicated internet applications
such as massive multiplayer online games are used by millions of people
every day.

In view of this tremendous growth, understanding the performance of
large-scale computer systems and applications has become vital to
institutional, commercial, and private interests. This workshop solicits
original papers on performance evaluation methods, tools, and studies
focusing on the challenges of large scale, such as decentralization,
predictable performance, reliability, and scalability. It aims to bring
together system designers and researchers involved with the modeling and
performance evaluation of large-scale systems and applications.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Performance aspects of large-scale systems
- Performance aspects of large-scale applications
- Performance-oriented properties such as availability, reliability,
and scalability
- Workload characterization and modeling
- Mathematical modeling and analysis methods
- Simulation methods and tools
- Measurement methods and tools
- Performance case studies

Submitted papers should be limited to 8 pages (including tables, images,
and references) and formatted according to the ACM SIGS Style.
Use the official HPDC conference submission site to submit your paper;
only pdf format is accepted. All papers will receive at least three
reviews. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors
to register for the workshop and present the paper. The authors of the
best paper in the workshop will receive a best-paper award.

The proceedings of the workshop will be published by ACM.

Submission deadline: March 1, 2009
Author notification: March 31, 2009
Final papers due: TBA (in April, 2009)
Workshop: June 9 or 10, 2009
