[CFP/CFD] Tracing Summit 2017 Call for Presentations and Discussions, October 27th, 2017, Prague, Czech Republic

From: Julien Desfossez
Date: Mon Jul 10 2017 - 13:58:46 EST


This is a call for presentations for the Tracing Summit which will be
held in Prague, Czech Republic, on October 27th, 2017, at the Hilton
Prague. This event is co-located with the Open Source Summit Europe

The Tracing Summit is organized by the Linux Foundation Diagnostic and
Monitoring Workgroup (http://diamon.org). This event focuses on the
tracing area, gathering people involved in development and end-users
of tracing tools as well as trace analysis tools. The main target of
this Tracing Summit is to provide room for discussion between people
in the various areas that benefit from tracing, namely parallel,
distributed and/or real-time systems, as well as kernel development.

New in the 2017 edition: half the day will be reserved for
presentations and the other half will be reserved for discussions
(more in the style of Linux Plumbers Conference) between users and
developers of the tracing infrastructures. Steven Rostedt will run the
discussion part.

If you are interested to present, please submit a proposal to
submission@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx before September 1st, 2017, at 23:59 EST.
Please specify if it is a presentation or a discussion topic, provide
a title, an abstract describing the proposed presentation or
discussion topic (900 characters maximum), a short biography (900
characters maximum), and describe the targeted audience (900
characters maximum).

We are welcoming presentations from both end users and developers, on
topics covering, but not limited to:

* Investigation workflow of Real-Time, latency, and throughput
* Trace collection and extraction,
* Trace filtering,
* Trace aggregation,
* Trace formats,
* Tracing multi-core systems,
* Trace abstraction,
* Trace modeling,
* Automated trace analysis (e.g. dependency analysis),
* Tracing large clusters and distributed systems,
* Hardware-level tracing (e.g. DSP, GPU, bare-metal),
* Trace visualisation,
* Interaction between debugging and tracing,
* Tracing remote control,
* Analysis of large trace datasets,
* Cloud trace collection and analysis,
* Integration between trace tools,
* Live tracing & monitoring.

Those can cover recently available technologies, ongoing work, and yet
non-existing technologies (which are compellingly interesting to
end-users). Please understand that this open forum is not the proper
place to present sales or marketing pitches, nor technologies which
are prevented from being freely used in open source.

There is a single track, containing presentations between 30 and 45
minutes per subject with discussion.

This year, attending the Tracing Summit is free of charge, and
attendees are not required to register to other events. The
registration will soon be available on the Open Source Summit website,
the room is limited to 100 persons, so don't wait too long before

The Tracing Summit is currently sponsored by EfficiOS. We are
welcoming additional sponsors. Please let us know if your company is
interested in sponsoring this event or next year's Tracing Summit.
