International Workshop on Algorithmic and Application Error Resilience
AER 2013

Held in conjunction with the
27th International Conference on Supercomputing (ICS 2013)

June 11th, 2013
Eugene, Oregon, USA

Circuit and logic variability from process scaling is leading to
significant reliability problems in future systems.  The increasingly
stringent power constraints on system designs are making prior hardware and
software-based fault tolerance approaches impractical due to their heavy
reliance on redundant, worst-case, and conservative designs.  Instead,
algorithm-based approaches provide applications the flexibility to adapt to
inherent application error tolerances and leverage the patterns of higher
level abstractions.

The AER workshop, to be held as a full-day meeting at the ICS 2013
conference in Eugene, Oregon, focuses on techniques, approaches, and
principles for algorithmic and application error resilience.

Topics of Interest:
  * Algorithm design principles for error resilience
  * Algorithmic error resilience implementations
  * Techniques for massively parallel resilient applications
  * Application fault detection and correction
  * Hardware fault and application error models
  * Application error resilience analysis and case studies
  * Tools for analyzing application vulnerability to errors
  * Optimizations for exploiting error resilience
  * System design and automation

The AER 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 (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 (
