WHIST 2012

Title:Second International Workshop on High-performance Infrastructure for Scalable Tools
Submission Deadline:2012-05-07
Webpage:http://whist-workshop.org
Dates:June, 29, 2012
Location:Venice, Italy
Contact Email:tgamblin@llnl.gov
Synopsis:
From laptops to supercomputers, increasingly complex multicore and accelerator hardware is driving rapid growth in concurrency. At the high end, exascale systems are expected to support over 100 million threads. To take full advantage of this concurrency, new software and programming models are necessary. Scalable tools are critical for diagnosing root causes of performance and correctness problems. To diagnose and correct problems in highly concurrent systems, tools require sophisticated infrastructure to measure, analyze, diagnose and present the causes of an execution's anomalies. There is a need for abstractions that simplify tool design and for infrastructure that is reusable and extensible.
