The Tracing Summit 2018 will be held in Edinburgh, UK on October 25th, 2018, at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre, co-located with the Open Source Summit & Embedded Linux Conference 2018 in the Pentland Auditorium.
The Tracing Summit is single-day, single-track conference on the topic of tracing. The event focuses on the field of 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.

Talks will be recorded and made available on Youtube after the event. If you prefer your talk not to be recorded for whatever reason please let us know
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 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,
- Programmable tracing (e.g. eBPF).
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.
