  This proposal is for a formally scheduled BOF to hold another meeting for PAPI users similar to the highly successful meeting held informally last year. The goals are: (1) to present plans for design of the next version of PAPI and receive input from users on selecting and prioritizing features to include in the next release, (2) to hear from users about how they are using PAPI and answer questions they may have, (3) to discuss any problems or concerns users have with PAPI, and (4) to discuss possible future short-term and long-term directions for the PAPI project. PAPI is a portable interface to the hardware performance counters available on most microprocessors. PAPI has been implemented for most major HPC platforms and is becoming a de facto standard. The PAPI library interface is widely used both directly by application developers and indirectly via third-party performance analysis tools that have incorporated support for PAPI.
