Call For Papers

CALL FOR PAPERS
8th Workshop on Fault-Tolerance for HPC at eXtreme Scale (FTXS 2018)

In conjunction with
The International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis (SC18)
Dallas, Texas, USA November 11 – 16, 2018

Important Dates
* Submission of papers: August 30, 2018
* Author notification: September 27, 2018
* Camera-ready papers: TBA
* Workshop: Friday, November 16, 2018

Authors are invited to submit original papers on the research and practice of
fault-tolerance in extreme-scale distributed systems (primarily HPC systems, but
including grid and cloud systems). Resilience and fault-tolerance remain a major
concern for supercomputing and advances in this area are needed to allow applications
to compute accurate (or within an acceptable error tolerance) answers in a timely and
efficient manner in the presence of degradations or failures of platform components
(both hardware and software).

Topics include, but are not limited to:
* Failure data analysis and field studies
* Power, performance, resilience (PPR) assessments / tradeoffs
* Novel fault-tolerance techniques and implementations
* Emerging hardware and software technology for resilience
* Silent data corruption (SDC) detection / correction techniques
* Advances in reliability monitoring, analysis, and control of highly complex
systems
* Failure prediction, error preemption, and recovery techniques
* Fault-tolerant programming models
* Models for software and hardware reliability
* Metrics and standards for measuring, improving, and enforcing effective
fault-tolerance
* Scalable Byzantine fault-tolerance and security from single-fault and
fail-silent violations
* Atmospheric evaluations relevant to HPC systems (terrestrial neutrons,
temperature, voltage, etc.)
* Near-threshold-voltage implications and evaluations for reliability
* Benchmarks and experimental environments including fault injection
* Frameworks and APIs for fault-tolerance and fault management


PAPER SUBMISSIONS
Submissions are solicited in the following categories:
* Regular papers presenting innovative ideas improving the state of the
art or discussing the issues seen on existing extreme-scale systems,
including some form of analysis and evaluation.
* Extended abstracts proposing disruptive ideas and challenging assumptions in the field, including
some form of preliminary results.
Extended abstracts will be evaluated separately and given shorter oral presentations.

Submissions shall be sent electronically, must conform to SC18
proceedings style. Regular papers should not exceed ten (10) pages
including all text, appendices, and figures. Extended abstract papers
should not exceed six (6) pages.
