Second International Workshop on Parallel Software Tools and Tool Infrastructures (PSTI 2011)
Held in conjunction with ICPP 2011, the 40th International Conference on Parallel Processing, Taipei, Taiwan, September 13-16, 2011.
New: Thanks to all attendees and presenters at PSTI-2011 for making the workshop a success! We hope to see you again at next year's conference in Pittsburgh!
The advent of multicore and manycore systems requires that programmers
understand how to design, write and debug parallel programs effectively. The
increased complexity of multi-threaded parallel programming on multicore
platforms requires more insight into program behavior, and necessitates the use
of tools that can support programmers in migrating existing software to
multicore platforms, and in writing new multi-threaded parallel
software. Programmers need increasingly sophisticated methods for
instrumentation, measurement, analysis and modeling of applications. To help
software developers embrace the multicore revolution, we need both sophisticated
tools to support parallel software development, and an extensible tool
infrastructure that promotes integration of existing and new tools, and
simplifies information exchange and access.
The workshop invites paper submissions on the following topics:
Static and dynamic analysis tools
Instrumentation, measurement, analysis, and modeling of applications
Analysis and visualization tools for assisting programmers with parallel software design
Active testing tools
Applications profiling and performance analysis
Data visualization and analysis infrastructures for interaction of tools
Submission is now open!Please use the PSTI 2011 conference management toolkit website to submit your paper.
Submission should be formatted according to the IEEE standard double-column format with a font size of 10pt or lager and are limited to 10 pages in length. Submissions should represent original, substantive research results. At least one author of every accepted paper is required to attend the conference in order for the paper to be included in the final proceedings. Workshop proceedings will be published in electronic format and will be available at the conference.
Tool Demonstration Session
In addition to a regular paper session we plan to hold a tool demonstration
session during the workshop in which tool developers can
demonstrate features and functionality of their software tools. A submission
for the tool demo session should include a short description of the
tool (max. 5 pages) to be sent to by April 11th,
