                          CALL FOR PAPERS

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

                         August 22, 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 12 pages

 Please note that only full workshop papers (10-12 pages), which have
 been positively reviewed by at least three referees before being
 presented at the workshop, may be included in the workshop

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 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
