The 2023 Tracing Summit is a two-day, single-track conference on the topic of tracing. The
event focuses on software and hardware tracing, gathering developers and end-users of tracing
and trace analysis tools. The main goal of the Tracing Summit is to provide space for
discussion between people of the various areas that benefit from tracing, namely parallel,
distributed and/or real-time systems, as well as kernel development.

We are welcoming 30 minute presentations from both end users and developers, on topics
covering, but not limited to:

- Investigation workflow of real-time, latency, and throughput issues,
- 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 visualization,
- 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,
- Dynamic instrumentation,
- Programmable tracing (e.g. eBPF).

Talks can cover recently available technologies, ongoing work, and yet non-existing
technologies (that are compelling to end-users). Talks covering interesting or challenging
tracing use cases are also welcome as they can reveal future directions or tooling needs.

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.

Please send any questions about this conference to <info at tracingsummit.org>.

This event is organized by EfficiOS on behalf of the Linux Foundation Diagnostic and
Monitoring Workgroup [4].

The organizers of this event are Mathieu Desnoyers (EfficiOS), Erica Bugden (EfficiOS)
and Olivier Dion (EfficiOS).
