International Conference on HPC & Simulation in Genoa

Benchmarking is an essential aspect of modern computational science, and as such, it provides a means for quantifying and comparing the performance of different computer systems. With a large combination of aspects to benchmark, all the way from the capability of a single core, to cluster configuration, and to various software configurations, the benchmarking process is more of an art than science. However, the results of this process, drive modern science and are vital for the community to draw sensible conclusions on the performance of applications and systems.

This special session focuses on research work aimed at benchmarking modern parallel and distributed systems for addressing a number of real world problems. As such, contributions concerning the definition of new open platforms, new benchmarks to match modern architectural evolutions, studies on the aspects of benchmarking different aspects of systems (from raw runtime performance to energy consumption to energy consumed per data movement) and mathematical foundations of benchmarking are sought.
