International Workshop on Runtime and Operating Systems for Supercomputers
*** ROSS 2014 ***

In cooperation with ACM SIGHPC
Held in conjunction with ICS 2014, Munich, Germany, June 10, 2014


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 environments.

The ROSS workshop, to be held as a full-day meeting at the ICS 2014
conference in Munich, Germany, focuses on principles and techniques to
design, implement, optimize, or operate runtime and operating systems for
supercomputers and massively parallel machines.


- OS and runtime system scalability on many-node and multi/many-core systems
- specialized OSs for Supercomputing
- distributed/hybrid/partitioned OSs and runtime systems for Supercomputing
- fault tolerance
- system noise analysis and prevention
- interaction between middleware, runtime system, and the OS
- modeling and performance analysis of runtime systems
- OS and runtime considerations for large-volume, high-performance I/O
- parallel job startup
- memory management and emerging memory technologies
- the role of OS and runtime system in minimizing power usage
- real-time considerations for Supercomputing


Submission deadline: March 21, 2014 (extended)
Author notification: April 21, 2014
Final papers due: May 9, 2014
Workshop date: June 10, 2014

The ROSS workshop proceedings will be published electronically along
with the ICS conference proceedings via the ACM Digital Library.
Submitted manuscripts should be formatted using the ACM SIG proceedings
alternate format. Extensive documentation can be found at the ACM site
( The
maximum length is 8 pages. All papers must be in English. Please visit
the workshop website for further instructions and the submission link.

The best papers of the workshop may be considered for inclusion in a
special issue of International Journal of High Performance Computing
Applications (IJHPCA). The decision will be made after the workshop.
