                           CALL FOR PAPERS

4th International Workshop on Reproducibility in Parallel Computing (REPPAR)

        in conjunction with IPDPS 2017 (June 2, 2017), Orlando, FL

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 Keywords

  Reproducibility, Parallel Computing / HPC, Open Science, 
  Data Provenance, Scientific Workflows

3 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
  - Ideas on artifact evaluation in Distributed Computing and HPC
  - Improving the review process in Parallel Computing
  - Open Science and Parallel Computing
  - Performance non-regression testing

4 Paper Types

  - full papers (10 pages)
  - short papers (8 pages)

5 Demos and Tutorials

  We welcome demos and tutorials addressing (potential) solutions to the
  reproducibility (replicability) problem.  Please contact us directly
  if you want to give a tutorial (demo).

6 Important Dates

  - Workshop papers due: 13 January 2017
  - Workshop author notification: 17 February 2017
  - Workshop camera-ready papers due: 15 March 2017

  - Demos/Tutorials proposals due: 10 February 2017
