20th Workshop on Job Scheduling Strategies for Parallel Processing (JSSPP)In
Conjunction with IPDPS 2016 <http://www.ipdps.org/>
Chicago IL
27 May 2016

The JSSPP workshop addresses all scheduling aspects of parallel processing.

Large parallel systems have been in production for more than 20 years,
creating the need of scheduling for such systems. This workshop was created
in 1995 to provide a forum for the research and engineering community
working in the area. Initially, parallel systems were very static. Machines
were built in fixed configurations, which would be wholesale replaced every
few years. Much of the workload consisted of parallel scientific jobs.
These jobs were static, running on a fixed number of nodes. Systems were
primarily managed via batch queues. The user experience was far from
interactive; jobs could wait in queues for days or even weeks.

A little over 10 years ago, the emergence of large scale, interactive, web
applications began to drive the development of a new class of systems and
schedulers. These systems would run “services”, which would essentially
never terminate (unlike scientific jobs). This created systems and
schedulers with vastly different properties. Moreover, this created an
enormous demand for computing resources, resulting in a commercial market
of competing providers. At the same time, the increasing demands for more
power and interactivity have driven scientific platforms in a similar
direction, causing the lines between these platforms to blur.

Nowadays, parallel processing is much more dynamic and connected. Many
workloads are interactive and make use of variable resources over time.
Complex parallel infrastructures can now be built on the fly, using
resources from different sources, provided with different prices and
quality of services. Capacity planning became more proactive, where
resources are acquired continuously, with the goal of staying ahead of
demand. The interaction model between job and resource manager is shifting
to one of negotiation, where they agree on resources, price, and quality of
service. These are just a few examples of the open issues facing our field.

JSSPP solicits papers that address any of the challenges in parallel
scheduling, including:

   - Design and evaluation of new scheduling approaches.
   - Performance evaluation of scheduling approaches, including
   methodology, benchmarks, and metrics.
   - Workloads, including characterization, classification, and modeling.
   - Consideration of additional constraints in scheduling systems, like
   job priorities, price, accounting, load estimation, and quality of service
   - Impact of scheduling strategies on application performance, user
   friendliness, cost efficiency, and energy efficiency.
   - Scaling and composition of very large scheduling systems.
   - Cloud provider issues: capacity planning, service level assurance,
   - Interaction between schedulers on different levels, like processor
   level as well as whole single- or even multi-owner systems.
   - Experience reports from production systems.
   - Experience reports from large scale compute campaigns.

>From its very beginning, JSSPP has strived to balance practice and theory
in its program. This combination provides a rich environment for technical
debate about scheduling approaches including both academic researchers as
well as participants from industry. JSSPP is a high-visibility workshop,
which has been ranking repeatedly in the top 10% of Citeseer's venue impact
list.Submission Dates and GuidelinesDEADLINE:21 February 2016NOTIFICATION:13
