Dear Colleagues,

The extended submission deadline (Apr. 6th, 2012) of the 5th International
Workshop on Parallel Programming Models and Systems Software for High-end
Computing (P2S2), in conjunction with ICPP-2012, is approaching. We
welcome  you submit your high-quality research work there. The best papers
of P2S2'12  will be included in a **dedicated special issue of the
Parallel Computing (by Elsevier, impact factor: 1.086)**. Please find a
detailed CFP below.

Thank you.

P2S2-2012 Co-chairs


Fifth International Workshop on Parallel Programming Models
and Systems Software for High-end Computing (P2S2)
Sept. 10th, 2012

To be held in conjunction with ICPP-2012: The 41st International
Conference on Parallel Processing, Sept. 10-13, 2012, Pittsburgh, USA

Website: http://www.mcs.anl.gov/events/workshops/p2s2/2012/

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and
practitioners in parallel programming models and systems software for
high-end computing systems. Please join us in a discussion of new ideas,
experiences, and the latest trends in these areas at the workshop.

The focus areas for this workshop include, but are not limited to:

* Systems software for high-end scientific and enterprise computing
o Communication sub-subsystems for high-end computing
o High-performance file and storage systems
o Fault-tolerance techniques and implementations
o Efficient and high-performance virtualization and other
management mechanisms for high-end computing

* Programming models and their high-performance implementations
o MPI, Sockets, OpenMP, Global Arrays, X10, UPC, Chapel,
Fortress and others
o Hybrid Programming Models

* Tools for Management, Maintenance, Coordination and Synchronization
o Software for Enterprise Data-centers using Modern
Architectures o Job scheduling libraries
o Management libraries for large-scale system
o Toolkits for process and task coordination on modern platforms

* Performance evaluation, analysis and modeling of emerging computing

Proceedings of this workshop will be published in CD format and will be
available at the conference (together with the ICPP conference
proceedings). The
accepted papers will be included in and indexed by the IEEE digital

The best papers of P2S2-2012 will be included in a Special Issue on
Parallel Programming Models and Systems Software of the Parallel Computing
(ParCo), edited by Yong Chen, Pavan Balaji, and Abhinav Vishnu.

This special issue is dedicated for the papers accepted in the P2S2
workshop. The submission to this special issue is by invitation only, and
the submission deadline is August 17th, 2012.

Submissions should be in PDF format in U.S. Letter size paper. They should
not exceed 10 pages (all inclusive). Submissions will be judged based on
relevance, significance, originality, correctness and clarity. Please
visit workshop website at:
for the submission link.
