First International Workshop on Fault Tolerant Systems (FTS) September 8th.

To be held in conjunction with IEEE Cluster 2015, September 8th in Chicago, IL.

Website: http://www.mcs.anl.gov/events/workshops/fts/2015/

Fault Tolerance is a cross-cutting issue that spans all layers of the
hardware/software stack, and hence, requires coupled improvements in each
layer and co-design between the different layers. FTS aims at providing a
venue for researchers to share experiences across the hardware/software layers
and attendees to get a holistic view of fault tolerance techniques.

The focus areas for this workshop include, but are not limited to:

* Techniques for predicting, detecting, and correcting silent data corruption
* Hardware failure prediction and recovery techniques
* Novel hardware design for fault mitigation
* Programming interfaces and libraries to facilitate resilience of parallel executions
* Resilient algorithm design for application level fault tolerance
* Failure modeling and analysis
* Fault injection techniques for improved tool development
* Hardware and software fault detection and reporting systems
* Fault tolerance for coupled executions, workflows, and in situ data analytics
* Algorithms for performance optimization in the presence of faults
* Techniques and algorithms for rollback recovery

Proceedings of this workshop will be published in CD format and will be
available at the conference (together with the IEEE Cluster conference
proceedings). The accepted papers will be included in and indexed by the IEEE
CS digital library.

The best papers of FTS-2015 will be included in a Special Issue on Fault
Tolerant Systems of the International Journal of High Performance Computing
Applications (IJHPCA), edited by Wesley Bland and Mattan Erez. Submission to
this special issue is by invitation only the submission deadline is still
being determined.

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:

The hpc-announce mailing list has been setup to have a common mailing
list to share information with respect to upcoming HPC related
events. You are included in this mailing list based on your
participation or interest in a previous HPC conference or other event.

The purpose for providing a single mailing list is to allow
participants to easily identify such emails, and handle them
appropriately. Some options include:

1. If you feel that the number of such emails is too many, filter them
to less-frequently-read folders in your email client.

2. Change your subscription to a digest option
(https://lists.mcs.anl.gov/mailman/listinfo/hpc-announce) which will
consolidate emails sent that week into a single summary email.

3. Finally, if you do not wish to receive any emails from hpc-announce,
you can unsubscribe from the mailing list
(https://lists.mcs.anl.gov/mailman/listinfo/hpc-announce). Once
unsubscribed, we guarantee that you will not be added back in through
participation in a different HPC related conference or event. You will
need to send an email to hpc-announce-owner at mcs.anl.gov to be added
back on.

If you need help with any of the above, please email us at
hpc-announce-owner at mcs.anl.gov.
