Call For Papers

The 2009 Workshop on Component-Based High Performance Computing (CBHPC 2009)

15-16 November 2009
Portland, Oregon, USA
Collocated with the [2]22^nd Supercomputing Conference (SC09)


Component and framework technology is mainstream for desktop
environments, but has lagged in the high-performance computing (HPC)
community. The reasons for this stem partly from a general lack of
awareness of component concepts in the community, but mostly from the
fact that desktop component models sacrifice performance for
ease-of-use. In addition, HPC uniquely requires component-based support
for patterns special to parallel computing, such as the massively
parallel single program multiple data pattern. Beyond the special
requirements of HPC, component concepts promise to provide the same
benefits as they do in the mainstream: participation by 10's or 100's
of developers and the ability to support the software complexity that
the simulation of natural phenomena demand. Likewise, with multi-core
architecture becomes the norm and cloud computing gaining popularity,
understanding requirements unique to HPC will enable a new class of
commercial HPC applications.

Following the success of past [3]HPC-GECO and CompFrame workshop
series, the fourth installment of the workshop, CBHPC 2009, aims to
bring together the developers and users of such technologies, and to
build an international research community around these issues. This
year's workshop focuses on the role of component and framework
technologies in high-performance and scientific computing, and on
high-level, component-based and innovative programming tools and
environments to efficiently develop high performance applications and
exploit them both on individual massively parallel systems and on the

Topics of Interest

CBHPC welcomes submissions of two types dealing with high-level and
component-based approaches to HPC and Grid Computing:
* Component models and frameworks
* Component-based platforms for Grid, Clouds and large-scale
* Programming environments and paradigms
* Analysis and comparison of existing programming approaches
* Integration of different distributed/Grid/HPC programming
* Tools and Environments for Coupling of Parallel Application codes
* Application-level and support-level management of performance, QoS,
faults, dynamicity, architecture heterogeneity
* Application-level QoS contract description and enforcement
* Advanced middleware systems as a device to efficiently exploit Grid
resources (e.g. high-bandwidth, innovative networks) in high-level
programming environments
* Case studies and experiments of large and geographic scale
high-level HPC applications, large-scale data/analysis
* Applicability of software engineering techniques for restructuring
and integration
* High-level approaches for emerging HPC architectures, including
clusters of reconfigurable computing units, multicore processors,
and other hybrid, hardware accelerator techniques such as GPGPU,
cell processors, and FPGA.
* Approaches to component composition, development, deployment,
repositories, debugging, and testing for components in HPC

Submissions Guidelines and Workshop Proceedings

CBHPC welcomes two types of submissions:
1. Full papers of up to 12 pages which include work not already
published or under review for publication in other conferences of
2. Extended abstracts of up to 4 pages describing work in progress,
which is intended to foster discussions of the emerging trends in
the component-based HPC and exchange of recent ideas as well as
on-going applications.

Submissions are accepted only electronically, in PDF format, and must
conform to the ACM style. Full papers may not exceed 12 pages and
extended abstracts of work in progress should be no more than 4 pages
long including all figures, tables, references, and supplementary
material. Information for authors and reference style files are
available at
[4] Papers
and abstracts should be submitted via [5]workshop submission page at
All full papers and extended abstracts will be reviewed by multiple
program committee members. Accepted papers will be also published
through the ACM Digital Library after the workshop. The committee also
plans to invite selected full papers from the workshop to be extended
and published as part of a journal special issue.
The organizers plan to distribute in electronic form to the attendees
additional material concerning the accepted works (e.g., software
tools, demos, and prototypes). Interested authors should contact the
workshop chairs no later than 18 September 2009.
