Abstract:   Europe has a leading position in the performance and debugging tools area. With the complexity and variability in the behavior of current systems, this technology is becoming increasingly important in order to ensure the proper use of the computing infrastructures at all levels. It is also crucial to provide really informed insight to programmers in order o reduce application development costs. Tools developments are certainly evolving in the direction of properly handling larger and larger scales, but also integrating intelligence and analytics capabilities with the aim of delivering really insightful information. Predictive modeling of the impact of new architectures and scales is an integral part of these new capabilities. Actively developed tools will provide an invaluable support for the analysis methodologies required to address the challenges of the coming computing systems at all scales. Best practices and training on these methodologies will greatly improve the productivity of application developers in all sectors.
