Call For Papers


3rd International Workshop on Reproducibility in Parallel Computing (REPPAR)

August 22, 2016
in conjunction with Euro-Par 2016 (August 22-26), Grenoble, France

1 Scope

The workshop is focused on the design, implementation, execution, and
analysis of experiments in parallel and distributed computing
(including HPC, Clouds, Networking, Big Data) to improve the
reproducibility of results.

2 Topics addressed in the workshop include:

- Experimental design of parallel computing experiments
- Experiences and best practices for conducting experiments (including
papers that address the reproduction of other articles)
- Supporting reproducibility in experimental testbeds for parallel
- Tools for reproducible research (e.g., control of experiments,
versioning, archiving)
- Analysis of experimental data (e.g., visualization, statistical
analysis, provenance)
- Automated uncertainty quantification for experimental workflows (or
data-focused workflows)
- Systems to incorporate (potentially very large) data into automated
testing frameworks
- Sustainable models for public data sharing

3 Paper Types

- full workshop paper: a regular article with up to 12 pages

Please note that only full workshop papers (10-12 pages), which have
been positively reviewed by at least three referees before being
presented at the workshop, may be included in the workshop

4 Demos and Tutorials

We welcome demos and tutorials addressing (potential) solutions to the
reproducibiblity/replicability problem. Please contact us directly if
you want to give a tutorial (demo).

5 Contributed Talks

The workshop will provide several slots (20 min talk + 5 min
questions) for contributed talks. We therefore invite scientists to
submit abstracts (max. 1 page) of contributed talks that are related
to the workshop topics. The abstracts accepted for contributed talks
will not be included in the workshop proceedings. Please submit the
abstract through EasyChair.

6 Important Dates

- Workshop papers due (extended): 16 May 2016
- Workshop author notification: 17 June 2016
- Workshop paper (for informal workshop proceedings) due: 29 July 2016
- Workshop camera-ready papers due: 3 October 2016

- Demos/Tutorials proposals due: 10 June 2016
- Abstract of contributed talks due: 10 June 2016

7 Proceedings

Accepted articles will be published in the Euro-Par workshop
proceedings after the conference.

8 Submission

Submissions are handled through the EasyChair conference system.
