********************** IEEE SHPCloud-2012 CFP ****************************

The 2nd IEEE International Workshop on Sustainable HPC Cloud
(SHPCloud-2012/HPCC-2012) to be held in Liverpool, England, UK, 25-27
June 2012


Sponsored by IEEE, IEEE Computer Society and IEEE Technical Committee
of Scalable Computing (TCSC)


Sustainability for HPC applications requires gaining performance and
reliability at the same time when acquiring new resources. As
cloud-based HPC resources have rapidly become available, the
sustainability of HPC applications is a timely challenge to HPC
systems and application developers.

The HPCC-2012 conference is the 14th highly successful International
Conference on High Performance and Communications (HPCC) started in
the Netherlands, 1999. HPCC-2012 will be held in Liverpool, United
Kingdom from June 25-27, 2012. It will provide a forum for scientists
and engineers in academia, industry, and government to discuss the new
challenges and to present their research results and experience in all
aspects of high performance computing and communications.

HPCC-2012 is sponsored by IEEE, IEEE Computer Society, and IEEE
Technical Committee on Scalable Computing (TCSC).

SHPCloud-2012 is the second Workshop of Sustainable High Performance
Cloud Computing after the first workshop in Banff, Canada, September

For 2012, we will have a new focus on auction-based cloud computing.
Auction-based clouds offer the users the most cost effective computing
option. It also gives providers the most efficient resource
utilization option. The only obstacle to make this win-win combination
to become reality is our programming habits. Existing methods are
incapable of handling volatile environments.  As the computing clouds
gain momentum for many applications, this unique resource provides an
unparalleled opportunity for HPC research and development.

The sustainable computing challenge is applicable to all computing
applications as the "1 + 1" challenge – can you gain performance and
reliability at the same time when adding resources? Solutions to this
challenge can have profound practical and theoretical impacts in
computer science research and development.

Suggested Topics:

* Investigative reports on delivered performance for computation
intensive applications with or without failure and recovery
* Investigative results on delivered cloud performances for
computation intensive applications
* Experiences in non-main stream HPC paradigms
* Experiences in using auction-based cloud resources
* Experiences in virtualized GPU for HPC applications
* Experiences in virtualized network for HPC applications
* Innovative failure prevention and recovery methods
* HPC security considerations using cloud resources
* Communication infrastructure virtualization experiences
* Private cloud implementation experiences
* Innovative cloud auction pricing models
