Call For Papers

International Workshop on Runtime and Operating Systems for Supercomputers
*** ROSS 2019 ***

Held in conjunction with HPDC 2019, Phoenix, Arizona, USA, June 25, 2019


**** Encouraging Wild and Crazy Ideas as Well as Talk Submissions ****

The complexity of node architectures in supercomputers increases as we
cross petaflop milestones on the way towards Exascale. Increasing levels
of parallelism in multi- and many-core chips and emerging heterogeneity of
computational resources coupled with energy and memory constraints force a
reevaluation of our approaches towards operating systems and runtime

The ROSS workshop, to be held as a full-day meeting at the HPDC 2019
conference in Phoenix, Arizona, USA, focuses on principles and techniques
to design, implement, optimize, or operate runtime and operating systems
for supercomputers and massively parallel machines.

In addition to typical workshop publications, we encourage novel and
possibly immature ideas, provided that they are interesting and on-topic.
Well argued position papers are also welcome.

The keynote will be delivered by Jidong Zhai from Tsinghua University,


- OS and runtime system scalability on many-node and multi/many-core systems
- management of heterogeneous and reconfigurable compute resources, including FPGAs, GPUs, etc.
- distributed/hybrid/partitioned OSes and runtime systems for Supercomputing
- system noise analysis and prevention
- interaction between middleware, runtime system, and the OS
- modeling and performance analysis of runtime systems
- OS and runtime considerations for large-volume, high-performance I/O
- memory management and emerging memory technologies
- the role of OS and runtime system in minimizing power usage


Submission deadline: March 29, 2019 (extended)
Author notification: April 26, 2019
Final papers due: early May, 2019
Workshop date: June 25, 2019

The ROSS workshop proceedings will be published electronically via the ACM
Digital Library. Submitted manuscripts should be formatted using the ACM
Master article template sigconf format (please be sure to use the current
version). Extensive documentation can be found at the ACM site
( The maximum
length is 8 pages. All papers must be in English. Please visit the
workshop website for further instructions and the submission link.
