Stony Brook, New York
March 28-30, 2021

Submissions Due: October 30, 2020

The IEEE International Symposium on Performance Analysis of Systems and Software (ISPASS) provides a forum for sharing advanced academic and industrial research focused on performance analysis in the design of computer systems and software. ISPASS 2021 will be held March 28 through 30, 2021 in Stony Brook, New York. Authors are invited to submit previously unpublished work for possible presentation at the conference.

Papers are solicited in fields that include the following:

  • Performance and efficiency (power, area, etc.) evaluation methodologies
    • Analytical modeling
    • Statistical approaches
    • Tracing and profiling tools
    • Simulation techniques
    • Hardware (e.g., FPGA) accelerated simulation
    • Hardware performance counter architectures
    • Power, temperature, variability and/or reliability models for computer systems
    • Microbenchmark-based hardware analysis techniques
  • Foundations of performance and efficiency analysis
    • Metrics
    • Bottleneck identification and analysis
    • Visualization
  • Efficiency and performance analysis of commercial and experimental hardware
    • Multi-threaded, multicore and many-core architectures
    • Accelerators and graphics processing units
    • Memory systems, including storage-class memory
    • Embedded and mobile systems
    • Enterprise systems and data centers
    • HPC and Supercomputers
    • Computer networks
  • Efficiency and performance analysis of emerging workloads and software
    • Software written in managed languages
    • Virtualization and consolidation workloads
    • Datacenter, internet-sector workloads
    • Embedded, multimedia, games, telepresence
    • Deep learning and convolutional neural networks
  • Application and system code tuning and optimization
  • Confirmations or refutations of important prior results

In addition to research papers, ISPASS welcomes tool and benchmark paper submissions. The conference is an ideal forum to introduce new tools and benchmarks to the community. These papers, which can detail tools and benchmarks in any of the above fields of interest, will be judged primarily on their potential impact and use, rather than on their research contribution. See for submission details.
