Inaugural HPC Systems Professionals Workshop HPCSYSPROS16

Submission Deadline: August 19th, 2016
Submission Website: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=hpcsyspros16
Workshop Website: http://hpcsyspros.lsu.edu/

Supercomputing systems present complex challenges to personnel who design,
deploy and and maintain these systems. Standing up these systems and
keeping them running require novel solutions that are unique to high
performance computing. The success of any supercomputing center depends on
stable and reliable systems, and HPC Systems Professionals are crucial to
that success.

The Inaugural HPC Systems Professionals Workshop will bring together
systems administrators, systems architects, and systems analysts in order
to share best practices, discuss cutting­edge technologies, and advance the
state­of­the­practice for HPC systems.

Submissions are encouraged that discuss all aspects of HPC systems design,
implementation, maintenance, and security.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Cluster, configuration, or software management
* Performance tuning/Benchmarking
* Resource manager and job scheduler configuration
* Monitoring/Mean­time­to­failure/ROI/Resource utilization
* Virtualization/Clouds
* Designing and troubleshooting HPC interconnects
* Designing and maintaining HPC storage solutions
* Cybersecurity and data protection

Authors are invited to submit original, high­quality papers with an
emphasis on solutions that can be implemented by other members of the HPC
systems community. Papers should be submitted in PDF format and should not
exceed 5 pages including tables, figures and appendices, but excluding
references. All submissions should be formatted according to the ACM SIG
Proceedings template which can be found at
https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings­template. Similar to the SC16
policy, margins and font sizes should not be modified. All submissions
should be submitted electronically through EasyChair.

Proceedings will be published in ScholarWorks hosted by Indiana University,
and authors will retain full rights to their work.
