Call for papers

The First Workshop on Novel Exascale Systems (NovExS)

To be held in conjunction with the 12th International Conference on 
High-Performance and Embedded Architectures and Compilers (HiPEAC), 
Stockholm, Sweden, January 24, 2017.

Workshop website: https://www.hipeac.net/events/activities/7424/novexs/

Deadline extended to November 27th 2016 (AOE).


Exascale computing remains a grand challenge. While traditional computer 
systems continue to make great advances, it is argued that a paradigm 
shift in high performance computing is required to reach exascale. The 
objective of NovExS is to bring together researchers and practitioners 
from academia and industry to discuss novel ways of achieving exascale.

Scope of the workshop

The scope of the workshop is both hardware and software aspects of 
exascale systems with a focus on novel ways of building systems. 
Contributions with radically new ideas with high potential but with less 
rigorous experimentation are welcome.

The list of interests includes, but is not limited to, the following 
topics. All in the context of exascale systems:
• Architecture of multi-core processors, GPUs, accelerators, 
heterogeneous systems, memory systems, reconfigurable hardware, 
interconnects and on-chip networks
• Parallel programming models, languages, environments
• Compiler optimizations and techniques
• Hardware/software design trade-offs in exascale systems
• Operating system, middleware, and run-time system support
• Correctness and performance analysis

Submission of papers

Participants willing to give a 20 minutes presentation are asked to send 
an electronic version of a paper presenting original work that does not 
exceed six pages using the ACM proceedings format, 
http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates, to 
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=novexs17. All submitted papers 
undergo peer review.


Workshop proceedings with the camera-ready versions of accepted papers 
will be available at the workshop. Because the proceedings have a small 
and limited distribution, contributions will not disqualify subsequent 
publications in conferences or journals.
