International Workshop on Data Analytics and Parallel Performance (DAPPER '18)
Held in conjunction with ISPASS 2018: IEEE International Symposium on Performance Analysis of Systems and Software
April 2-4, 2018
Belfast, Northern Ireland, UK

Submission deadline: February 15, 2018 (AoE)

Optimizing high performance computing (HPC)/data centers, and applications
running at these centers presents a unique set of challenges, and an
opportunity to automate complex optimization tasks. The use of machine learning
and statistical techniques to model and characterize performance data is
gaining traction in the parallel community. The International Workshop on Data
Analytics and Parallel Performance provides a forum for sharing academic and
industrial research work focused on applying data analytics to performance
analysis, debugging and optimization/tuning of parallel software and systems.

# Workshop Topics

Authors are invited to submit novel research as well as ongoing work pertaining to:

- Deep learning, neural networks
- Supervised/unsupervised machine learning
- Classification, regression, clustering
- Dimensionality reduction
- Data-driven modeling

applied to

- Performance analysis
- Debugging, performance debugging
- Performance optimization, auto-tuning


- Parallel benchmarks, proxy applications, and production codes
- Scientific workflows
- HPC workloads/Full system
- HPC/Data center facilities

# Submissions

We solicit 8-page full papers as well as 4-page short papers that focus on
techniques at the intersection of parallel performance and data analytics. The
8-page full papers should describe original unpublished work, while 4-page short
papers can be original unpublished work or ongoing work.

Papers must be submitted in PDF format (readable by Adobe Acrobat Reader 5.0
and higher) and formatted for 8.5" x 11" (U.S. Letter). Submissions are limited
to 8 pages in the IEEE format: https://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html,
using the conference option. The 8-page limit includes figures, tables, and

All papers must be submitted through Easychair at:

Accepted submissions will be invited to present a talk at the workshop, and a few
selected accepted papers that describe unpublished work will be invited to
submit to a special issue of The International Journal of High Performance
Computing Applications.
