International Workshop on Runtime and Operating Systems for Supercomputers
*** ROSS 2020 ***

Held in conjunction with SC20: The International Conference for High
Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis,
November 13, 2020

In cooperation with IEEE-CS TCHPC

UPDATED: the event will be held virtually; please note the new date!


The complexity of node architectures in supercomputers increases as we
cross petaflop milestones on the way towards Exascale. Increasing levels
of parallelism in multi- and many-core chips and emerging heterogeneity of
computational resources coupled with energy and memory constraints force a
reevaluation of our approaches towards operating systems and runtime

The ROSS workshop, to be held virtually as a full-day event in conjunction
with the SC20 conference, focuses on principles and techniques to design,
implement, optimize, or operate runtime and operating systems for
supercomputers and massively parallel machines.

In addition to typical workshop publications, we encourage novel and
possibly immature ideas, provided that they are interesting and on-topic.
Well argued position papers are also welcome.


- OS and runtime system scalability on many-node and multi/many-core systems
- management of heterogeneous and reconfigurable compute resources, including FPGAs, GPUs, etc.
- distributed/hybrid/partitioned OSes and runtime systems for Supercomputing
- system noise analysis and prevention
- interaction between middleware, runtime system, and the OS
- modeling and performance analysis of runtime systems
- the use of AI techniques in the autotuning of system software
- OS and runtime considerations for large-volume, high-performance I/O
- memory management and emerging memory technologies
- OS and runtime aspects of HPC in the cloud, including virtualization and containers
- the role of OS and runtime system in minimizing power usage


Submission deadline: August 28, 2020 (extended)
Author notification: September 25, 2020
Final papers due: October 9, 2020
Workshop date: November 13, 2020 (new date)

We are planning to publish the ROSS workshop proceedings electronically via
the IEEE Computer Society Digital Library. Submitted manuscripts should be
formatted using the IEEE template conference mode. The maximum paper
length is 8 pages, not including references and other appendices. All
papers must be in English. Please visit the workshop website for further
instructions and the submission link.
