The Third Workshop on Low-Power Dependable Computing (LPDC)

In conjunction with The 7th International Green and Sustainable 
Computing Conference (IGSC),
November 7-9, 2016, Hangzhou, China


** NEWS: IEEE Transactions on Sustainable Computing (T-SUSC) special 
issue on LPDC
Selected top papers from the workshop will be invited to submit to this 
special issue!


Scope: As part of the IEEE-Technically sponsored International Green and 
Sustainable  Computing conference, the workshop on Low-Power Dependable Computing 
(LPDC) will be organized to address various design aspects of power efficient and 
dependable computing infrastructures. Dependable computing is normally achieved 
through various error reduction, detection and recovery techniques at different levels 
(for instance, circuit, architecture, operating systems, compiler and application 
software) in the systems. With the continuous technology scaling and miniaturization 
of computing systems, faults will become more common and it is imperative for most 
modern computing systems to deploy various fault-tolerance techniques. On the 
other hand, fault-tolerance does not come for free, and generally has 
power/energy/temperature implications, which warrants careful consideration since power/energy is 
the first-class system resource and has been emerging as the limiting factor 
for multicore scaling.

This workshop aims at establishing a specialized forum for practitioners 
and researchers from both industry and academia who work on different 
aspects of fault tolerance and power/energy efficiency to exchange ideas on how to 
achieve low-power dependable computing. In particular, understanding the interdependencies 
between reliability and power are important to consider, e.g., high power 
consumption may lead to elevated temperature that can further aggravate the reliability. 
To cover a broad range of research related to energy efficiency and dependable 
computing, the workshop will consider various levels (from circuits to software), 
components (from memory to computation) and systems (from battery-powered embedded 
systems to large scale reliable servers). The topics of interest include, but are 
not limited to, the following:

   . Energy-efficient redundant circuit design
   . Energy-efficient fault-tolerance architecture
   . Compilation techniques for reliability and low-power
   . Runtime management and scheduling algorithms for energy-efficiency and
     fault tolerance
   . Case study on low-power dependable systems
   . Emerging paradigms for low-power and dependable computing, for instance,
     approximate computing, cross-layer design, etc.
   . Mitigating reliability threats (aging, soft errors, process variations)
     in Dark Silicon chips
   . Low-power reliable memory and storage systems
   . Low-power and reliable on-chip networks and communication

Author Information:

The workshop invites authors to submit papers related to the theme of 
this workshop. The submitted paper should describe original and unpublished work that 
are not concurrently under review elsewhere. The papers submitted to this 
workshop is limited to be six (6) single-spaced, double-column pages (with IEEE Computer 
Society Proceedings Manuscripts style: 11-point fonts and 8.5 x 11 inch), which 
should include everything (e.g., abstract, research description, figures, 
tables, and references). All submissions will be reviewed by the program committee. 
The accepted papers will be included in the supplementary proceedings of IGSC, which 
will be published by the IEEE Computer Society and indexed by EI, subject to (1) 
One author of each accepted paper must register for the conference following the 
instructions on IGSC webpage at the time of the submission of the final manuscript; 
and (2) One of the authors must appear to present the paper at the workshop.

Papers should be submitted via EasyChair at
