                            Call For Papers

            Second International Workshop on Communication
                    Architectures at Extreme Scale
                            (ExaComm 2016)

                  June 23, 2016, Frankfurt, Germany

                   to be held in conjunction with
                    ISC 2016, June 19 - 23, 2016
                         Frankfurt, Germany


Extreme Scale computing is marked by multiple-levels of hierarchy and
heterogeneity ranging from the compute units to storage devices to the
network interconnects. Owing to the plethora of heterogeneous communication
paths with different cost models expected to be present in extreme scale
systems, data movement is seen as the soul of different challenges for
exascale computing.  On the other hand, advances in networking technologies
such as NoCs (like NVLink and Storm Lake), RDMA enabled networks and the
like are constantly pushing the envelope of research in the field of novel
communication and computing architectures for extreme scale computing. The
goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and
software/hardware designers from both academy and industry who are involved
in creating network-based computing solutions for extreme scale
architectures, to share their experiences and to learn the opportunities
and challenges in designing next-generation HPC systems and applications.

ExaComm 2016 will be held in conjunction with the International
Supercomputing (ISC 2016), Frankfurt, Germany, on Thursday, June 23, 2016.


ExaComm 2016 welcomes original submissions in a range of areas, including
not limited to:

    * Scalable communication protocols
    * High performance networks
    * Runtime/middleware designs
    * Impact of high performance networks on Deep Learning / Machine
    * Impact of high performance networks on Big Data
    * Novel hardware/software co-design
    * High performance communication solutions for accelerator based
    * Power-aware techniques and designs
    * Performance evaluations
    * Quality of Service (QoS)
    * Resource virtualization and SR-IOV

Papers should present original research and should provide sufficient
background material to make them accessible to the broader community.

Paper Submission, Registration, and Publication

Abstracts and papers need to be submitted via the EasyChair conference

Easychair URL for ExaComm'16:

We request the authors to use the LNCS style (single column format) using
either the LaTeX document class or Word template. For details on the author
guidelines, please refer to Springer's website. Incorrectly formatted
papers will be excluded from the reviewing process. Submission must be made
as a single PDF file which includes all figures and bibliography.

Submissions are accepted under the following two categories:

Full Paper  : 18 pages with all figures and bibliography in the LNCS format

Short Paper : 10 pages with all figures and bibliography in the LNCS format

Papers should present original research and should provide sufficient
background material to make them accessible to the broader community. It
should not be submitted in parallel to any other conference or journal.

At least one of the authors of each accepted paper must register as a
participant of the workshop and present the paper at the workshop.

Each research paper will be taken through a comprehensive peer review
process by an internationally recognized group of experts in the field.
Papers will be evaluated along the metrics of a) Quality of Presentation;
b) Novelty / Originality; c) Relation to State of the Art; d) Technical
Strength; e) Significance of Work; and f) Relevance to Workshop. Every
effort will be made to ensure that each paper receives multiple reviews.

The papers accepted to be presented in ExaComm'16 will be published in a
separate Joint Workshop Proceeding Volume, published online with Springer
Publishing. Note: The decision by Springer is pending.

Please contact the Program Chairs for any questions / clarifications
