This special issue gears to gather recent work on heterogeneous and
unconventional cluster architectures and applications, which might have
a big impact on future cluster architectures. This includes any cluster
architecture that is not based on the usual commodity components and
therefore makes use of some special hard- or software elements, or that
is used for very special and unconventional applications. Examples
include GPUs and other accelerators (Intel MIC/Xeon Phi, FPGA) used at
cluster level. Other examples include run-time management,
virtualization, in-memory storage,  hard- and software interactions,
databases, and device-to-device communication. We are in particular
encouraging work on disruptive approaches, which may show inferior
performance today but can already point out their performance
potential. The broad scope of the special issue facilitates submissions
on unconventional uses of hardware or software, gearing to gather ideas
that are coming to life now and not limiting them except for their
context: clusters. Also, these proposals may rather be reflective of a
broader industry trend.

We are seeking new proposals presented from a holistic perspective. In
this regard, one of the aims of the special issue is anticipating the
evolution of clusters, instead of just presenting new work carried out
in the traditional cluster areas usually addressed in other journals
and conferences.

Topics of interest include any heterogeneous or unconventional cluster
architecture or application. Examples include, but are not limited to:

- Clustered GPUs, Xeon Phis or other accelerators
- Runtimes, resource management and scheduling for heterogeneous
- Communication methods for distributed or clustered accelerators
- Energy-aware data movement techniques
- New industry and technology trends and their potential impact
- High-performance, data-intensive, and power-aware computing
- Application-specific cluster, datacenter, and high performance
  cloud architectures
- Emerging programming paradigms for parallel heterogeneous computing
- Software cluster-level virtualization for consolidation purposes
- Hardware techniques for resource aggregation
- Management layers for large-scale systems
- New uses of GPUs, FPGAs, and other specialized hardware
- Dedicated support for novel parallel programming paradigms like PGAS
  or MapReduce

- EXTENDED submission deadline: Feb 22, 2015
- Notification to authors: April 15, 2015
- Revision Due: May 15, 2015
- Final decision due: June 15, 2015
- Final manuscript due: July 15, 2015
- Publication: 4th Quarter of 2015 (estimated)

Manuscripts must not have been previously published nor currently under
review by other journals or conferences. If prior work was published in
a conference, the submitted manuscript should include a substantial
extension of at least 30% novel contributions. In this case, authors
are also required to submit their published conference articles and a
summary document explaining the enhancements made in the journal
