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 Authors are invited to submit previously unpublished work for possible presentation at the conference.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:

Power/Performance Evaluation methodologies


Power/Performance 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


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.
