Call For Papers

An increasing variety of applications are moving into the data center, each with their own infrastructure requirements. Some applications require support for predictable low latency processing, others run in the background crunching huge datasets. Some are compute intensive and some require huge amounts of memory. Still other applications may require their data and processing to be co-located. From a datacenter operator perspective, a major challenge is to use the same resources to efficiently support such a diverse set of applications.

Composable software-defined infrastructure (SDI) is an emerging approach to address these requirements that is being leveraged in industry initiatives such as Facebook’s Open Compute Initiative, Intel’s Rack Scale architecture etc. The development in hardware technologies such as silicon photonics, photonic backplanes, storage class memories etc., augur well for software composable server architectures. However, many of these technologies are still in their infancy and challenges remain in both the hardware and software system architectures that need to support, and want to benefit from, such dynamic composition.
Topics of interest to the workshop include, but are not limited to:
Low Latency interconnects for rack-scale resource composition
Programmable Server Hardware
Memory Disaggregation
Software Architectures for New/Poolable Memory Hierarchies
Dynamic composition of GPU, FPGA etc.
Fault Isolation and Redundancy Model
Analytics for Software Composable Infrastructures
Application and Cloud Platform Optimizations for Rack Scale
Submitted papers must represent original unpublished research that is not currently under review for any other conference or journal. Submissions received after the due date, exceeding length limit, or not appropriately structured may also not be considered. Authors may contact the program organizers at the email address below for further information or clarification. Papers not following these guidelines will be rejected without review.

At least one of the authors of the workshop paper (preferably the presenting author) must REGISTER before submitting the CAMERA READY version of their paper. Post conference, papers presented at the conference and eligible for inclusion will be submitted to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.
