6th Workshop on Fault-Tolerance for HPC at eXtreme Scale (FTXS 2016)

In conjunction with

The 25th International ACM Symposium on
High Performance Distributed Computing (HPDC 2016)
Kyoto, Japan on May 31 ­ June 4, 2016

Important Dates
* Submission of papers: February 19th, 2016 <<<< EXTENDED <<<<
* Author notification: March 12th, 2016
* Camera ready papers: March 27th, 2016
* Workshop: May 31st, 2016

Authors are invited to submit original papers on the research and practice of
fault-tolerance in extreme scale (HPC) computing.  Resilience and
fault-tolerance remain a major concern for supercomputing and advances in
this area are needed to allow applications to compute accurate (or within
error tolerance) answers in a timely and efficient manner in the presence
of degradations or failures of platform components (both hardware and

Topics include, but are not limited to:
* Failure data analysis and field studies
* Power, performance, resilience (PPR) assessments / tradeoffs
* Novel fault-tolerance techniques and implementations
* Emerging hardware and software technology for resilience
* Silent data corruption (SDC) detection / correction techniques
* Advances in reliability monitoring, analysis, and control of highly complex systems
* Failure prediction, error preemption, and recovery techniques
* Fault-tolerant programming models
* Models for software and hardware reliability
* Metrics and standards for measuring, improving, and enforcing effective fault-tolerance
* Scalable Byzantine fault-tolerance and security from single-fault and fail-silent violations
* Atmospheric evaluations relevant to HPC systems (terrestrial neutrons, temperature, voltage, etc.)
* Near-threshold-voltage implications and evaluations for reliability
* Benchmarks and experimental environments including fault injection
* Frameworks and APIs for fault-tolerance and fault management

Submissions are solicited in the following categories:
* Regular papers presenting innovative ideas improving the state of the
art or discussing the issues seen on existing extreme-scale systems,
including some form of analysis and evaluation.
* Extended abstracts proposing disruptive ideas in the field, including
some form of preliminary results.
Extended abstracts will be evaluated separately and given shorter oral

Submissions shall be sent electronically, must conform to ACM conference
proceedings style.  Regular papers should not exceed eight (8) pages
including all text, appendices, and figures.  Extended abstract papers
should not exceed six (6) pages.
