********************** IEEE SHPCloud/SC12 CFP ****************************

International Workshop on Sustainable HPC Cloud (SHPCloud/SC12) to be
held in Salt Lake City, Utah, 11/10-16/2012


Sponsored by IEEE Supercomputing Conference 2012


HPC Cloud computing offers better resource utilization and more
software flexibility to researchers. There are also challenges. These
include virtual
machine administration complexities and less performance compared to
traditional HPC clusters. As a budding community, we are always
looking for credible
experiences in using HPC cloud for different types of applications.
The SHPCloud workshop is dedicated to disseminate research reports and
in HPC Cloud applications, architecture and smart ways to mitigate
sticky issues.

For Supercomputing 2012, we are excited to have a chance to trade our
struggles with researchers around world.

Suggested Topics (but not limited to):
* 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

* Resource usage prediction models

Important Dates:
* Paper submission deadline: 9/15/2012. 5pm EST.
* Notification of acceptance: 10/15/2012, 2012 10am EST.
* Final Manuscript Due: 10/25/2012 5pm EST.
