Call for Papers

Extreme-scale and exascale systems impose new requirements on application developers and programming systems to target platforms with hundreds of homogeneous and heterogeneous cores, as well as energy, data movement and resiliency constraints within and across nodes. Runtime systems play a critical role in enabling future programming models, execution models and hardware architectures to address these challenges, and in reducing the widening gap between peak performance and the performance achieved by real applications.

The goal of this workshop is to attract leading international researchers to exchange ideas and share their work-in-progress and latest results involving runtime approaches to address these extreme-scale and exascale software challenges. We welcome submissions of original work on all aspects of runtime systems related to parallel programming models and architectures, which includes (but is not limited to) runtime system support for:

High-level programming models and domain-specific languages;
Scalable intra-node and inter-node scheduling; 
Scalable coordination and synchronization mechanisms;
Memory management across coherence domains and vertical hierarchies of volatile/non-volatile storage;
Optimized locality and data movement;
Energy management and optimization;
Performance tuning and optimization;
Resilience and fault-tolerance;
Scalable I/O and access to “big data”;
Case studies and comparisons of runtime systems.
Since the primary goal of this workshop is to foster discussion of cutting edge research related to runtime systems for extreme scale, there will be no formal proceedings for the workshop to ensure that papers presented at the workshop are not disqualified from publication in more formal venues in the future.  Instead, all papers will only be posted on the workshop web site, along with the workshop schedule and copies of workshop presentations.

Submission Guidelines:

We invite two kinds of submissions to this workshop:

Full-length research papers (8-page limit)
Short papers (4-page limit), which can take the form of position papers, experience reports, or surveys/comparisons of runtime systems
All submissions will be peer-reviewed by members of the program committee and external reviewers.
