Workshop on

  Tools for Program Development and Analysis
  in Computational Science

at the

  2010 International Conference on Computational Science (ICCS 2010)
  Amsterdam, Netherlands, May 31 - June 2, 2010

The use of supercomputing technology, parallel and distributed processing,
and sophisticated algorithms is of major importance for computational
scientists. Yet, the scientists' goals are to solve their challenging
scientific problems, not the software engineering tasks associated with it.
For that reason, computational science and engineering must be able to rely
on dedicated support from program development and analysis tools. 

The primary intention of this workshop is to bring together developers of
tools for scientific computing and their potential users. Paper submissions
both tool developers and users from the scientific and engineering community
are encouraged in order to inspire communication between both groups.
Tool developers can present to users how their tools support scientists
and engineers during program development and analysis.
Tool users are invited to report their experiences employing such tools, 
especially highlighting the benefits and possible improvements.

The following areas and related topics are of interest:

    * Problem solving environments for specific application domains
    * Application building and software construction tools
    * Domain-specific analysis tools
    * Program visualization and visual programming tools
    * On-line monitoring and computational steering tools
    * Requirements for (new) tools emerging from the application domain

In addition, we encourage software tool developers to describe use cases and
practical experiences of software tools for real-world applications in the
following areas: 

    * Tools for parallel, distributed and network-based computing
    * Testing and debugging tools
    * Performance analysis and tuning tools
    * (Dynamic) Instrumentation and monitoring tools
    * Data (re-)partitioning and load-balancing tools
    * Checkpointing and restart tools
    * Tools for resource management, job queuing and accounting

Paper Submission:

We invite you to submit a full paper of up to 10 pages (A4), describing new
and original results, for publication and oral presentation. The submitted
paper must be camera-ready and formatted according to the rules of Procedia
Computer Science. (http://www.iccs-meeting.org/iccs2010/cfp.html)

Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to
and present the paper. 

Please submit your paper via the conference website at
http://www.iccs-meeting.org/iccs2010/papers/upload.php, selecting the
workshop "Tools for Program Development and Analysis in Computational


The proceedings of the ICCS 2010 will be published by Elsevier Science in
open-access Procedia Computer Science series.
