IEEE Cluster 2016 Call for Papers

IEEE Cluster 2016 is the 18th edition of the IEEE Cluster conference

Clusters are the primary architecture for building today's rapidly
evolving cloud and HPC infrastructures, and are used to solve some of
the most complex problems. The challenge to make them scalable,
efficient, and more functional requires a community effort in the
areas of cluster system design, management and monitoring, at the
hardware, system, middleware and application levels.

Following the successes of previous IEEE Cluster conferences
(, for IEEE Cluster 2016, which will be
held September 12-16, 2016 in Taipei Taiwan, we again solicit high-quality
original work that advances the state-of-the-art in clusters and closely
related fields. All papers will be rigorously peer-reviewed for their
originality, technical depth and correctness, potential impact, relevance
to the conference, and quality of presentation. Research papers must
clearly demonstrate novel research contributions while papers reporting
experiences must clearly describe lessons learned and impact, along with
the utility of the approach compared to previous ones.

Authors must indicate the primary area of preference out of the four
areas below. They may optionally rank the other areas. The paper may
be accepted as a full paper, or the committee might decide to accept
it as a short paper with 4 pages in the proceedings.

Area 1: Application, Algorithms, and Libraries
* HPC applications on clusters
* Performance modeling and measurement
* Novel algorithms on clusters
* Hybrid programming techniques (e.g., MPI+OpenMP)
* Cluster benchmarks
* Application-level libraries on clusters
* Effective use of clusters in novel applications
* Performance evaluation tools

Area 2: Architecture, Network/Communications, and Management
* Energy-efficient cluster architectures
* Node and system architecture
* Packaging, power and cooling
* GPU/ManyCore and heterogeneous clusters
* Interconnect/memory architectures
* Single system image clusters
* Administration and maintenance tools

Area 3: Programming and System Software
* Cluster system software/operating systems
* Cloud-enabling cluster technologies and virtualization
* Energy-efficient middleware
* Cluster system-level protocols and APIs
* Cluster security
* Resource and job management
* Programming and software development environments on clusters
* Fault tolerance and high-availability

Area 4: Data, Storage, and Visualization
* Cluster architectures for big data storage and processing
* Middleware for big data management
* Cluster-based cloud architectures for big data
* File systems and I/O libraries
* Support and integration of non-volatile memory
* Visualization clusters and tiled displays
* Big data visualization tools
* Programming models for big data processing
* Big data application studies on cluster architectures

* Submissions must be single-spaced, 2-column numbered pages in IEEE
Xplore format (8.5x11-inch paper, margins in inches -- top: 0.75,
bottom: 1.0, sides:0.625, and between columns:0.25, main text:
* Submissions are NOT double-blind. Author information can be
included on the submission and will be visible to the reviewers.

Important dates:
* No separate abstract deadline
* Full Papers due: May 6, 2016 (Anywhere on Earth (AoE),
* Paper Acceptance Notification: July 1, 2016
* Camera-ready deadline: T.B.D.
* Conference: September 12 thorugh 16, 2016
