WODA is a forum for researchers and practitioners interested in the intersection 
of compilers, programming languages, architecture, systems, high-performance 
computing, software engineering, performance engineering, machine learning, and 
data mining for addressing software and system performance. The workshop focuses 
on developing and studying analytic technologies (e.g., program analysis, 
statistical analysis, machine learning, data mining, visualization) applied on 
various software or system artifacts (e.g., production systems, tests, program 
traces, system logs) to address issues in software and system reliability, 
dependability, performance, and scalability.

WODA welcomes submissions that propose dynamic analysis techniques for solving 
all kinds of problems in software and systems; typical areas of interest that 
WODA covers are:

 - Development of dynamic analysis tools and frameworks
 - Efficient instrumentation techniques
 - Novel applications of dynamic analysis
 - Program security and penetration testing
 - Fault detection, debugging, and tolerance
 - Performance analysis and optimization techniques
 - Remote analysis and measurement of software systems
 - Runtime monitoring
 - Software and systems testing
 - Statistical reasoning techniques
 - Visualization and classification of program behavior
 - Relating user feedback to execution dynamics
 - Dynamic analysis for efficient memory management
 - Dynamic analysis on embedded and mobile systems

Submissions addressing an emerging problem are especially welcome. The workshop 
will be structured to encourage discussion and develop research collaborations.



Submissions must be in ACM SIGPLAN proceedings format, 10-point type, and may 
not exceed 6 pages. Submissions must be in PDF, printable on US Letter.

Submissions to WODA should be in one of the following two categories:

 - A four to six page position/idea paper describing an issue in the field, and 
   arguing for a specific stance or approach to that issue
 - A two-page extended abstract describing an ongoing project

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least three members of the program 
committee. During the workshop, extended abstracts will receive a shorter 
presentation and discussion period.
