ABSTRACT: This workshop is concerned with the comparison of HPC systems through performance modeling, benchmarking or through the use of tools such as simulators.
We are particularly interested in the ability to measure and make tradeoffs in software/hardware co-design to improve sustained application performance. We are also concerned with the assessment of future systems to ensure continued application scalability through peta- and exa-scale systems.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers, from industry and academia, concerned with the qualitative and quantitative evaluation and modeling of HPC systems. Authors are invited to submit novel research in all areas of performance modeling, benchmarking and simulation, and we welcome research that brings together current theory and practice. We recognize that the coverage of the term 'performance' has broadened to include power consumption and reliability, and that performance modeling is practiced through
analytical methods and approaches based on software tools and simulators. For more information go to: http://www.dcs.warwick.ac.uk/~sdh/pmbs10/pmbs10/Workshop_Home.html.
