• Challenges in automating performance tool support Panelists: Vittorio Cortellessa; Abel Gómez; Samuel Kounev; Catalina M. Lladó; Connie U. Smith; Murray Woodside;

Research and development (R&D) of new tools for performance analysis faces many challenges from immaturity and lack of documentation of supporting tools and infrastructure, incompatibility of tools, access to realistic case studies and performance parameters for them, validation of results, time required versus benefit of results, and many, many others. Yet it is an essential part of practical R&D. The panelists relay experiences in developing these tools, discuss what needs improvement, opportunities in developing R&D tools, and offer advice for other researchers. After introductory remarks from each panelist, there will be a discussion session with the audience.
