The 2nd Workshop on Communication Architecture for Scalable Systems
Shanghai, China, 21 May 2012
http://www.ccs3.lanl.gov/cass2012/

To be held in conjunction with the International Parallel and
Distributed Symposium (IPDPS 2012)


THEME

High-speed communication is critical to all parts of an HPC system.
On-chip networks for emerging many-core processors; point-to-point
interconnects, which have replaced the system bus for intra-node
communication; and system-wide networks, which form the backbone of
any large-scale parallel system, all contribute to the construction of
the world’s fastest computers. Numerous research groups in academia,
industry, and government are currently investigating the issues
involved in improving the speed, reliability, power consumption, and
other characteristics of communication subsystems and seeking new ways
to advance the state of the art in cluster communication.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers working on
improving communication at every level of the network hierarchy
(on-chip, intra-node, and cross-cluster), thereby enabling the sharing
and adaptation of ideas from what have traditionally been separate
communities.

All researchers and practitioners working in the area of communication
architectures for scalable systems are encouraged to submit a paper to
the workshop.


TOPICS OF INTEREST

Topics of interest for the workshop include but are not limited to the
following:

* Hardware and software issues related to router/switch
organization, flow control, collective communication, congestion
control, routing and deadlock handling, network topology, load
balancing, reliability, QoS support, topology discovery, dynamic
reconfiguration, energy efficiency, and clustered storage and
fileserver. Research at any level of the network hierarchy
(on-chip, intra-node, and cross-cluster) is welcome.

* Architectural and run-time system support for messaging, PGAS,
shared memory, and other programming models.

* Design and implementation of standard or custom software
communication layers for any or all parts of the network
hierarchy.

Papers covering more than one of on-chip, intra-node, and cluster-wide
communication networks are especially sought. Results of both
theoretical and practical significance will be considered. Note,
however, that papers on topics that are too far removed from scalable
communication in HPC systems (e.g., mobile networks, intrusion
detection, peer-to-peer networks, grid/cloud computing) will be
rejected without review.


PROCEEDINGS

The proceedings of this workshop will be published together with the
proceedings of other IPDPS 2012 workshops by the IEEE Computer Society
Press.


PAPER SUBMISSIONS

Submitted manuscripts may not exceed eight single-spaced pages using a
11-point font on 8.5x11-inch pages, everything included (figures,
tables, references, etc.) and must be submitted electronically and in
either PostScript or PDF format. Submissions will be judged on
correctness, originality, technical strength, significance, quality of
presentation, and interest and relevance to the workshop attendees.
Submissions may not have appeared in or be under consideration for
another workshop, conference, or journal.

CASS manuscript submissions are being handled by EDAS. To submit a
paper, go to https://edas.info/N11641 and follow the instructions.


IMPORTANT DATES

Paper submission: 19 December 2011
Notification of acceptance: 31 January 2012
Camera-ready papers due: 14 February 2012
Workshop date: 21 May 2012

All deadlines are set at 11:59 p.m. anywhere on Earth
(cf. http://wirelessman.org/aoe.html), except the camera-ready due
date, which IPDPS sets as midnight PST (GMT–08:00).
