                           CALL FOR PAPERS

3rd International Workshop on Reproducibility in Parallel Computing (REPPAR)

                        August 22 or 23, 2016
     in conjunction with Euro-Par 2016 (August 22-26), Grenoble, France

1 Scope

  The workshop is focused on the design, implementation, execution, and
  analysis of experiments in parallel and distributed computing
  (including HPC, Clouds, Networking, Big Data) to improve the
  reproducibility of results.

2 Topics addressed in the workshop include:

  - Experimental design of parallel computing experiments
  - Experiences and best practices for conducting experiments (including
    papers that address the reproduction of other articles)
  - Supporting reproducibility in experimental testbeds for parallel
  - Tools for reproducible research (e.g., control of experiments,
    versioning, archiving)
  - Analysis of experimental data (e.g., visualization, statistical
    analysis, provenance)
  - Automated uncertainty quantification for experimental workflows (or
    data-focused workflows)
  - Systems to incorporate (potentially very large) data into automated
    testing frameworks
  - Sustainable models for public data sharing

3 Paper Types

  - full workshop paper: a regular article with up to 10 pages

  Please note that only full workshop papers (10 pages), which have been
  positively reviewed by at least three referees before being presented
  at the workshop, may be included in the workshop proceedings.

4 Demos and Tutorials

  We welcome demos and tutorials addressing (potential) solutions to the
  reproducibiblity/replicability problem.  Please contact us directly if
  you want to give a tutorial (demo).

5 Contributed Talks

  The workshop will provide several slots (20 min talk + 5 min
  questions) for contributed talks. We therefore invite scientists to
  submit abstracts (max. 1 page) of contributed talks that are related
  to the workshop topics. The abstracts accepted for contributed talks
  will not be included in the workshop proceedings.  Please submit the
  abstract through EasyChair.

6 Important Dates

  - Workshop papers due: 6 May 2016
  - Workshop author notification: 17 June 2016
  - Workshop paper (for informal workshop proceedings) due: 29 July 2016
  - Workshop camera-ready papers due: 3 October 2016

  - Demos/Tutorials proposals due: 10 June 2016
