Annual Conference: Communicating Process Architectures
Communicating Process Architectures 2017,
the 39th. WoTUG conference on concurrent and parallel systems, takes place from
Sunday August 20th. to Wednesday August 23rd. 2017 and is hosted by
Kevin Vella, Head of Department in
at the University of Malta.
Conference sessions will take place at the
Victoria Hotel in Sliema, Malta.
WoTUG provides a forum for the discussion and promotion of concurrency ideas,
tools and products in computer science.
It organises specialist workshops and annual conferences that address
key concurrency issues at all levels of software and hardware granularity.
WoTUG aims to progress the leading state of the art in:
and to stimulate discussion and ideas on the roles concurrency will play in the future:
theory (programming models, process algebra, semantics, ...);
practice (multicore processors and run-times, clusters, clouds, libraries, languages, verification, model checking, ...);
education (at school, undergraduate and postgraduate levels, ...);
applications (complex systems, modelling, supercomputing, embedded systems, robotics, games, e-commerce, ...);
Of course, neither of the above sets of bullets are exclusive.
for the next generation of scalable computer infrastructure (hard and soft) and application,
where scaling means the ability to ramp up functionality (stay in control as complexity increases)
as well as physical metrics (such as absolute performance and response times);
for system integrity (dependability, security, safety, liveness, ...);
for making things simple.
A database of papers and presentations from WoTUG conferences is here.
The Abstract below has been randomly selected from this database.
PARAVER: A Tool to Visualize and Analyze Parallel Code
PARAVER (PARallel Visualization and Events Representation) is a tool to visualize and analyze a parallel trace file. PARAVER can be used in two different ways: Creating its own trace file in accordance with the PARAVER trace format, or using a modified PVM library. PARAVER is based on a simple interface to manage several displaying windows. In fact, PARAVER can be seen as a tape recorder where the trace file is the tape. PARAVER provides many functionalities to see and analyze qualitatively the trace file. Moreover, the user can add his own analysis function to extend the functionality of the tool. This paper discusses the basic concept, design and use of PARAVER. We explain in detail each window. The different functionalities of PARAVER are also examined. Finally we present the future directions of our research.
