Sixth International Workshop on Parallel Programming Models and Systems 
Software for High-end Computing (P2S2) September 9th. 

To be held in conjunction with ICPP 2014: The 43rd International Conference on 
Parallel Processing, September 9th in Minneapolis, MN. 

Website: http://www.mcs.anl.gov/events/workshops/p2s2/2014/ 

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 architectures 
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 platforms 

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 CS digital 

The best papers of P2S2-2014 will be included in a Special Issue on Parallel 
Programming Models and Systems Software of the Elsevier International Journal 
of Parallel Computing (PARCO), edited by Abhinav Vishnu, Yong Chen, and 
Pavan Balaji. Submission to this special issue is by invitation only and the 
submission deadline is August 8th, 2014. 

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.
