37th GI/ITG International Conference on Architecture of Computing Systems
May 14-16, 2024, Potsdam, Germany

THIS YEAR’S FOCUS: *HPC - Challenges for Sustainable Computing*

* Submission deadline for ARCS and OC track extended to March 7th, 2024
* VERFE CfP added

The ARCS conferences series has over 36 years of tradition reporting
leading edge research in computer architecture and operating systems.

High performance computing represents an important tool for tackling
climate change. In many other HPC application fields, the need for
more high computing power has increased enormously in recent years,
especially due to the high demand of AI-specific workloads. The
operation of correspondingly powerful computing systems therefore
represents an increasing problem in terms of energy requirements and
the associated CO2 emissions. HPC is therefore not only part of the
solution to tackling climate change, but also part of the overall

Heterogeneous computer architectures promise a significant increase
in the energy efficiency of HPC systems. The selection of different
accelerator architectures can contribute significantly to increasing
efficiency, but there is currently a lack of appropriate concepts
for their seamless and scalable integration, as well as the support
through appropriate programming models.

The focus of the ARCS’24 conference will be on novel accelerator
architectures, which are suited for the integration into HPC systems.
This includes fine and coarse grain reconfigurable architectures as
well as new ideas for their integration to achieve higher energy
efficiency as typical homogeneous architectures. In addition, the
topics cover HPC-specific research at the level of computer architec-
tures, runtime and operating systems, design tools and HPC programming
models and algorithms.

In addition to the main conference, ARCS will host special tracks on
Organic Computing and Dependability and Fault Tolerance.

The proceedings of ARCS 2024 will be published in the Springer
Lecture Notes on Computer Science (LNCS) series. A best paper
and best presentation award will be presented at the conference.

*Special Track on Organic Computing*
Organic Computing postulates to equip technical systems with `lifelike’
properties. Technically, this means to move traditional design-time
decisions to runtime and into the responsibility of systems themselves.
As a result, systems have a dramatically increased decision freedom that
leads to highly autonomous behaviour. The goal of this process is to
allow for self-adaptation and self-improvement of system behaviour at
runtime. Especially since conditions that occur at runtime can only be
anticipated to a certain degree, efficient mechanisms are needed that
guide the system’s behaviour even in cases of missing knowledge or
uncertain environmental states. Consequently, the research field of
Organic Computing investigates fundamental principles, discusses
essential aspects and researches novel methods that are needed to
finally build self-adaptive and self-organising systems that are
capable of reliable operation in complex real-world environments.

Details and Topics of interest:

*18th Workshop on Dependability and Fault Tolerance (VERFE 2024)*
organized as Special Track in conjunction with 37th ARCS 2024
Dependability is a property of technical systems – in particular of
computer systems - that requires special attention during design and
operation phases. One important means to achieve dependability is
supporting fault-tolerance, i.e. making the system resilient to hardware
and software faults by construction. Fault-tolerance techniques are
in the focus of this workshop, either implemented in hardware or as
software-based distributed algorithms. In addition, surrounding
techniques will be considered, such as computation models or simulations
to assess the impact of fault tolerance techniques to reliability and
