International Workshop on Sustainable Higher Performance Computing
(SHPC 2015)

in Collaboration with the 13th IEEE International Conference on
 Dependable, Autonomic and Secure Computing (DACS 2015)

October 26-28, 2015, Liverpool, UK

About SHPC Workshops

Sustainable high performance computing puts dependable and autonomic
computing in context. Without self-healing, self-configuration and
self-monitoring, a high performance computing application will have hard
time to complete under extreme scales. Without dependability, high
performance computing applications are to suffer rapidly decreasing MTBF
(mean time between failures) as we expand the size of computing clusters.
Security is another dimension that mission critical high performance
applications must take into account, or unintended consequences will cause
irreparable harms.

While the above discussion made sense at the conceptual level, current
research communities are narrowly divided into specific subareas.  In fact,
all these topics concern how to handle volatile resources in terms of
programming, monitoring, configuration, load distribution/optimization and
management. SHPC2015 Workshop aims to bring researchers in these related
areas together to exchange ideas and concepts via the success and failure
stories in all relevant areas for the benefit of sustainable high
performance computing -- the non-lethal large scale typical distributed
computing applications.

Unlike traditional conferences that favor successful novel technologies,
SHPC2015 encourages submissions of credible in-depth stories that may be
success or failure in dependable computing, autonomic computing,
information security and sustainable high
performance computing efforts. In fact, we will learn more from failures
than from successes.

In particular, data intensive distributed computing efforts are highly
encouraged since they are more difficult to secure, to practice
dependability and be made autonomic-ally computable.

SHPC2015 provides a platform for academic architecture researchers,
industry practitioners and government agencies to exchange evolving
distributed mission critical computing requirements, ideas and preliminary

As computational services are to become integral parts of human societies,
performance, dependability, sustainability and security of these services
directly impact future social and economic prosperity. SHPC2015 will be a
checkpoint of dependable computing, autonomic computing and sustainable HPC
efforts. The results may prove to be of fundamentally importance towards
the building of 21st century software engineering principles.
