                         SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS

International Workshop on Runtime and Operating Systems for Supercomputers
                           ***  ROSS 2012  ***

                     In cooperation with ACM SIGHPC
    Held in conjunction with ICS 2012, Venice, Italy, June 29, 2012


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 environments.

The ROSS workshop, to be held as a full-day meeting at the ICS 2012
conference in Venice, Italy, focuses on principles and techniques to
design, implement, optimize, or operate runtime and operating systems
for supercomputers and massively parallel machines.

The keynote will be delivered by Timothy Roscoe from ETH Zurich,


- OS and runtime system scalability on many-node and multi/many-core
- specialized OSs for Supercomputing
- distributed/hybrid/partitioned OSs and runtime systems for
- fault tolerance
- system noise analysis and prevention
- interaction between middleware, runtime system, and the OS
- I/O resource management and forwarding
- parallel job startup
- memory management and emerging memory technologies
- real-time considerations for Supercomputing


Submission deadline:	March 30, 2012
Author notification:	May 7, 2012
Final papers due:	May 25, 2012
Workshop date:		June 29, 2012

The ROSS workshop proceedings will be published electronically along
with the ICS conference proceedings via the ACM Digital Library.
Submitted manuscripts should be formatted using the ACM SIG proceedings
alternate format. Extensive documentation can be found at the ACM site
(http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates). The
maximum length is 8 pages. All papers must be in English. Please visit
the workshop website for further instructions and the submission link.

The best papers of the workshop will be considered for inclusion in a
special issue of International Journal of High Performance Computing
Applications (IJHPCA).
