Call For Papers

The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM)International Conference on Supercomputing (ICS) is the premier international forum for the presentation of research results in high-performance and supercomputing. The 32nd conference (ICS 2018) will be held on June 12-15 in Beijing, China.

Unikernels are specialised, single-address-space machine images constructed by using library operating systems. Typically, Unikernels provide many benefits compared to a traditional OS, including improved security, smaller footprints, more optimisation and faster boot times. So Unikernels is pretty suited for HPC with low latency and high performance but in the secure model.

During this big event, we're honored to hold one specific workshop:The Next Generation Cloud: Unikernel Is Coming! Right there we'd like to further explore Unikernels across different areas. Both the fundamental Unikernel design and Unikernesl solution are welcomed in the scope of HPC. Meantime, Unikernels in the cutting-edge technologies like machine learning, Internet of Things (IoT), blockchain, etc, will be preferred with the highest priority.

So this is a very good opportunity to discuss Unikernels. Especially, this should be first time of having such a workshop specific to Unikernel in China.

Now our schedule is avaiable,

09:00 ~ 09:05 Introduction
09:05 ~ 09:45 DeferPanic CEO: Ian Eyberg -- Challenges and Opportunities in Brining Unikernels to HPC and the Cloud
09:45 ~ 10:15 VMware China R&D: Tiejun Chen -- Unikernel explorations
10:15 ~ 10:30 Break
10:30 ~ 11:00 Alibaba Team: The exploration of unikernel in Alibaba
11:00 ~ 11:30 ARM China Team: Wei Chen -- Unikraft: Easy way of crafting Unikernels on ARM
11:30 ~ 12:00 IncludeOS CEO: Per Buer -- IncludeOS: Cloud platform, IoT OS or container replacement

Please register via, and join us.
