                            CALL FOR PAPERS AND DEMOS/TUTORIALS

4th International Workshop on Reproducibility in Parallel Computing
                           (REPPAR) [http://reppar.org]

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 workshop paper (8-10 pages)
   • short paper (4-7 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).
