GSHI 2012 : The International Workshop on the Growing Problems with Scalable Heterogeneous Infrastructures
Call For Papers
The International Workshop on the Growing Problems with Scalable Heterogeneous Infrastructures (GSHI'12) will be held at the 10th IEEE International Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Processing with Applications (ISPA'12)
Madrid, Spain, 10-13 July 2012
** Important Dates **
Papers due: February 15, 2012
Notification: March 15 2012
Camera ready: April 15 2012
Conference dates: July 10-13, 2012
Call for papers
This workshop focuses on the particular problems to increase scale and examines potential means to address these problems. It is thereby not restricted to the hardware side of problems, but addresses the full scope from hardware limitations over algorithm and computing theory to new means for application development and execution. The workshop aims at experts from all fields related to high performance computing, including manufacturers, system designers, compiler and operating system developers, application programmers and users etc. Depending on the number of submissions, this workshop will be broken into multiple strands according to topic, such as hardware, theory of computation and software development.
The main questions asked by the workshop are therefore:
1- Where is the feasible end of scalability, i.e. when does it not make sense to increase scale anymore?
2- Which application and problem class can actually benefit from the degree of scale and scalability model is most suited for them?
3- What are the specific problems faced on hardware and software side in order to increase the scale further, i.e. such as interconnect latency, Amdahl’s law etc.
4- What alternative approaches are thinkable
Topics of interest
* Hardware restrictions
* New hardware approaches, such as 3d memory
* Software restrictions
* Application classifications and their system needs
* Use case domains and their resource to performance ratio
* New approaches in programming
* Tools for development of large scale parallel applications
* Automated parallelisation
* New ways to exploit parallelism and concurrency
* New application structures
* Execution infrastructures
* Communication protocols
* Alternatives to parallelism
* Alternative computing paradigms
* Power Management
* Submissions should not exceed 8 pages in IEEE CS proceedings paper format, including tables and figures. All paper submissions must represent original and unpublished work. Submission of a paper should be regarded as an undertaking that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register for the conference and present the work. Submissions will be conducted electronically on the conference website.
