Call For Papers

Second International Workshop on Fault Tolerant Systems (FTS) September 16th.

To be held in conjunction with IEEE Cluster 2016, September 12-16 in Taiwan.


Fault Tolerance is a cross-cutting issue that spans all layers of the
hardware/software stack, and hence, requires coupled improvements in each
layer and co-design between the different layers. FTS aims at providing a
venue for researchers to share experiences across the hardware/software layers
and attendees to get a holistic view of fault tolerance techniques, especially with a focus on HPC and parallel computing.

The focus areas for this workshop include, but are not limited to:

* Techniques for predicting, detecting, and correcting silent data corruption
* Hardware failure prediction and recovery techniques
* Novel hardware design for fault mitigation
* Programming interfaces and libraries to facilitate resilience of parallel executions
* Resilient algorithm design for application level fault tolerance
* Failure modeling and analysis
* Checkpoint/restart model
* Replication model
* Fault injection techniques for improved tool development
* Hardware and software fault detection and reporting systems
* Fault tolerance for coupled executions, workflows, and in situ data analytics
* Algorithms for performance optimization in the presence of faults
* Techniques and algorithms for rollback recovery

Proceedings of this workshop will be published in CD format and will be
available at the conference (together with the IEEE Cluster conference
proceedings). The accepted papers will be included in and indexed by the IEEE
CS digital library.


Test best papers of FTS-2016 will be included in a special issue on Fault Tolerant Systems in an appropriate international journal.

Submissions should be in PDF format in U.S. Letter size paper. They should not
exceed 8 pages (all inclusive). Authors with accepted papers may purchase additional up to 4 pages.
Submissions should use the same formatting as IEEE Cluster ()
Submissions will be judged based on
relevance, significance, originality, correctness and clarity. Please visit
workshop website at:
