International Workshop on Runtime and Operating Systems for Supercomputers
*** ROSS 2021 ***

Held in conjunction with SC21: The International Conference for High
Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis,
November 15, 2021

In cooperation with IEEE-CS TCHPC


The complexity of node architectures in supercomputers increases as we cross
milestones towards Exascale and beyond. 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 environments.

The ROSS workshop focuses on principles and techniques to design, implement,
optimize, or operate runtime and operating systems for massively parallel
supercomputers and cloud environments for high-performance computing.

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
- runtime and operating systems for resource disaggregation
- 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
- infrastructure for cloud functions and serverless computing in the context of HPC
- the role of OS and runtime system in minimizing power usage


Submission deadline: August 23, 2021
Author notification: September 24, 2021
Final papers due: October 8, 2021
Workshop date: November 15, 2021

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.
