Call for paper

Second International Workshop on Fault Tolerant Systems (FTS) September 16th.

To be held in conjunction with IEEE Cluster 2016, September 12-16 in Taiwan.

Website: http://www.mcs.anl.gov/events/workshops/fts/2016/ <http://www.mcs.anl.gov/events/workshops/fts/2016/>


Fault Tolerance is a cross-cutting issue that spans all layers of the hardware/software stack, and hence, requires coupled improvements in each layer and co-design between the different layers. FTS aims at providing a venue for researchers to share experiences across the hardware/software layers and attendees to get a holistic view of fault tolerance techniques, especially with a focus on HPC and parallel computing.


The focus areas for this workshop include, but are not limited to:
Techniques for predicting, detecting, and correcting silent data corruption
Hardware failure prediction and recovery techniques
Novel hardware design for fault mitigation
Programming interfaces and libraries to facilitate resilience of parallel executions
Resilient algorithm design for application level fault tolerance
Failure modeling and analysis
Checkpoint/restart model
Replication model
Fault injection techniques for improved tool development
Hardware and software fault detection and reporting systems
Fault tolerance for coupled executions, workflows, and in situ data analytics
Algorithms for performance optimization in the presence of faults
Techniques and algorithms for rollback recovery


Proceedings of this workshop will be published in CD format and will be available at the conference (together with the IEEE Cluster conference proceedings). The accepted papers will be included in and indexed by the IEEE CS digital library.


Test best papers of FTS-2016 will be included in a special issue on Fault Tolerant Systems in an appropriate international journal.


Submissions should be in PDF format in U.S. Letter size paper. They should not exceed 8 pages (all inclusive). Authors with accepted papers may purchase additional up to 4 pages. Submissions should use the same formatting as IEEE Cluster (). Submissions will be judged based on relevance, significance, originality, correctness and clarity. Please visit workshop website at:
