Call for Participation:


IEEE International Symposium on Performance Analysis of Systems and Software (ISPASS)
March 28-30, 2021


The IEEE International Symposium on Performance Analysis of Systems and Software (ISPASS) provides a forum for sharing advanced academic and industrial research work focused on performance analysis in the design of computer systems and software. ISPASS 2021 will be held March 28 through 30, 2021 in a virtual online format. The MLBench 2021 and FastPath 2021 workshops, and a tutorial on ESP: An Open-Source Platform for Agile SoC Development will be held in conjunction with the conference.  The preliminary conference program has been posted, and registration is now open. The detailed program is available on the conference website at

The format of ISPASS will follow a new format and include session panel discussions instead of traditional presentations. We will start each day with a keynote, one from Daniel Lustig, a Senior Research Scientist at Nvidia, and one from Reetuparna Das, an Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Michigan. Presentation formats will differ this year, with group panel discussions following each presenter’s lightning talks. We are aiming for an interactive discussion with the community on a variety of topics.

Through the generous support of the IEEE TCCA and our industry sponsors, the conference is pleased to offer student participation grants that will cover the conference registration fee for eligible students. Applications are due March 7th, 2021. See the conference website for details.

We invite you all to attend the conference and hope to see you on Zoom!
