Call For Papers

CALL FOR PAPERS
5th Workshop on Fault-Tolerance for HPC at eXtreme Scale (FTXS 2015)

In conjunction with
The 24th International ACM Symposium on
High Performance Distributed Computing (HPDC 2015)
Portland, Oregon, USA on June 15 – 19, 2015

Authors are invited to submit original papers on the research and practice of
fault-tolerance in extreme scale (HPC) computing. Resilience and
fault-tolerance remain a major concern for supercomputing and advances in this
area are needed to allow applications to compute accurate (or within error
tolerance) answers in a timely and efficient manner in the presence of
degradations or failures of platform components (both hardware and software).

Topics include, but are not limited to:
* Failure data analysis and field studies
* Power, performance, resilience (PPR) assessments / tradeoffs
* Novel fault-tolerance techniques and implementations
* Emerging hardware and software technology for resilience
* Silent data corruption (SDC) detection / correction techniques
* Advances in reliability monitoring, analysis, and control of highly
complex systems
* Failure prediction, error preemption, and recovery techniques
* Fault-tolerant programming models
* Models for software and hardware reliability
* Metrics and standards for measuring, improving, and enforcing effective
fault-tolerance
* Scalable Byzantine fault-tolerance and security from single-fault and
fail-silent violations
* Atmospheric evaluations relevant to HPC systems (terrestrial neutrons,
temperature, voltage, etc.)
* Near-threshold-voltage implications and evaluations for reliability
* Benchmarks and experimental environments including fault injection
* Frameworks and APIs for fault-tolerance and fault management

See https://sites.google.com/site/ftxsworkshop/home/ftxs-2015 and
http://www.hpdc.org/2015/ for more information.

AMD will sponsor the FTXS 2015 best paper award! The award will be chosen by
the PC and awarded at the workshop.

PAPER SUBMISSIONS
Submissions are solicited in the following categories:
* Regular papers presenting innovative ideas improving the state of the
art.
* Experience papers discussing the issues seen on existing extreme-scale
systems, including some form of analysis and evaluation.
* Extended abstracts proposing disruptive ideas in the field, including
some form of preliminary results.

Submissions shall be sent electronically, must conform to ACM conference
proceedings style and should not exceed eight (8) pages including all text,
appendices, and figures. Position papers should not exceed six (6) pages.
