 Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this CfA.
 Please share the announcement below with those who may be interested.
 Workshop of the
 Virtual Institute - High Productivity Supercomputing (VI-HPS)
 in collaboration with the
 German Priority Programme "Software for Exascale Computing" (SPPEXA)
 Supercomputing Conference (SC) 2013
 November 18th, 2013
 Denver, Colorado, USA
 Extended submission deadline: July 15th, 2013
 You are cordially invited to submit one page abstract about relevant
 and unpublished work to the Extreme-Scale Programming Tools workshop
 to be held at Supercomputing Conference 2013. The Workshop aims at
 repeating the success of the predecessor workshop held at SC12.
 Selected authors will be invited to give a 15 minutes talk followed
 by 5 minutes discussion. The slides will be made public on the
 workshop website, however no proceedings are planned.
 Workshop abstract:
 As we approach exascale, architectural complexity and severe resource
 limitations with respect to power, memory and I/O, make tools support
 in debugging and performance optimization more critical than ever
 before. However, the challenges mentioned above also apply to tools
 development and, in particular, raise importance of topics, such as
 automatic tuning and methodologies for exascale tools-aided application
 development. This workshop will serve as a forum for application,
 system, and tool developers to discuss the requirements for future
 exascale-enabled tools and the roadblocks that need to be addressed on
 the way. We also highly encourage application developers to share their
 experiences with using the tools.
 The workshop is organized by the Virtual Institute - High Productivity
 Supercomputing in collaboration with the German Priority Programme
 "Software for Exascale Computing" (SPPEXA). The event will also focus
 on the community-building process necessary to create an integrated
 tools-suite ready for an exascale software stack.
 Workshop topics:
 * Programming Tools, for instance, Performance Analysis and Tuning
 Tools, Debuggers, IDEs
 * Methodologies for Performance Engineering
 * Tool Technologies Tackling Extreme-Scale Challenges, such as
 Scalability, Resilience, etc.
 * Tool Infrastructures
 * Application Developer Experiences with Programming Tools
 Submission details:
 Please submit the title and one page abstract until July 15th, 2013

 Travel support:
 A limited amount of travel grants will be awarded to the participants
 selected based on the submitted abstracts with preference to be given
 to SPPEXA doctoral candidates, early-career and female researchers.
 The travel grants cover a flight in 2nd class and the SC workshop fee
 (in total not more then 1300 USD). Applications should be submitted to
 oleynik at and mention whether any of the preference criteria
 mentioned above apply. Please also provide an estimate of the required
 travel support.
