VASPE'19: International Workshop on Visual Analytics in Supercomputing
and Performance Engineering 2019
Mumbai, India, April 2019

Conference website: https://vaspe.gitlab.io
Submission link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=vaspe19

Both high performance computing (HPC) and performance engineering (PE)
experts are facing the challenge of analyzing, comparing, visualizing, and
reasoning about ever increasing volumes of performance-related data. While
HPC typically deals with massively parallel simulation codes being executed
on supercomputers, PE focuses on distributed, reliable software systems.
Due to the scale of performance-related data and the open-ended nature of
analyzing it, visualization (VIS) and data analytics are often the only
feasible tools to comprehend, debug, and improve the performance behavior
of systems and/or codes. This is becoming ever more important, since the
scale of performance-related data keeps rapidly growing. However the
research communities in HPC, PE, and VIS are mostly disjunct.
VASPE '19 aims at gathering experts from (i) the HPC community, (ii) the PE
community, and (iii) the VIS community in order to breed cross-community
algorithms, techniques, and systems for analyzing and
visualizing performance-related data.
Workshop Topics

Topics include, but are not limited to:
• 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
• Data analytics of historical performance data
• Machine learning or statistical techniques for data exploration

Call for Papers

We solicit 6–8 page full papers and 2–4 page short papers that focus on
techniques at the intersection of the three communities HPC, PE, and VIS
that either use visualization techniques to display large scale
performance data
or that develop new visualization or visual analytics methods that help
create new insights. We welcome submissions presenting novel and
experimental ideas as well as tool descriptions.
Papers must be submitted as a PDF file in the ACM Standard proceedings
format, and formatted for 8.5" x 11" (U.S. Letter). The 4-page and 8-page
limits include figures, tables, and references.
Papers will be peer-reviewed by members of the program committee and
accepted papers will be published by ACM as part of ICPE 2019 proceedings.
Accepted papers will also be presented during the workshop as a paper talk
(~20 min) or a lightning presentation (~10 min).
All papers must be submitted through EasyChair.
Important Dates

• Submission deadline: Jan 7, 2019
