Student Travel Support for the 2014 IEEE International Symposium on Performance Analysis of Systems and Software (ISPASS-2014)

Project: Research project

Description

Student Travel Support for the 2014 IEEE International Symposium on Performance Analysis of Systems and Software (ISPASS-2014) Proposal Summary: The purpose of this proposal is to request travel support funds that will enable students to be able to defray the costs associated with traveling to and attending ISPASS-2014. The conference will be held in Monterey, California. ISPASS is a premium conference in the field of Computer Systems and Software. The conference is typically sponsored by IEEE Computer Societys Technical Committee on Internet, Technical Committee on Computer Architecture, and Technical Committee on Microprogramming and Microarchitecture. Intellectual Merit: The IEEE International Symposium on Performance Analysis on Systems and Software provides a forum for sharing advanced academic and industrial research work focused on performance analysis in the design of computer systems and software. The Symposium covers a wide range of topics in the field, including but not limited to: Performance and power evaluation methodologies Performance and power analysis Power/Performance analysis of commercial and experimental hardware Power/Performance analysis of emerging workloads and software Application and system code tuning and optimization Confirmations or refutations of important prior results Students will be able to attend all events associated with the conference, as well a rich set of workshops and a diverse tutorial program. Broader Aspects: Support from this grant will be distributed to students who may otherwise be unable to attend the ISPASS conference. Our grant selection process will give priority to US citizens and permanent residents, with special consideration to members of under-represented groups and participants from universities that do not have a strong tradition in the ISPASS research domain, in order to expand the conference participation. Furthermore, special funding will be provided for Companion Travel Grants to support attendees with either disabilities, or a parent of an infant less than one year old who cannot travel without the infant and a care provider for the infant. These efforts are anticipated to broaden the participation in the conference and, subsequently, the research field.
