                  Second Annual Workshop on Emerging Parallel and
                                  Runtime Systems and Middleware
                                              June 2, 2017
                                         Orlando, Florida, USA.

Held in conjunction with the 31st IEEE International Parallel and
Distributed Processing Symposium, (IEEE IPDPS 2017),
                        May 29-June 2, 2017, Orlando, Florida, USA.

Submission deadlines: January 29th, 2017 EXTENDED February 5th, 2017


Node architectures of extreme-scale systems are rapidly increasing in
complexity. Emerging homogeneous and heterogeneous designs provide massive
multi-level parallelism, but developing efficient runtime systems and
middleware that allow applications to efficiently and productively exploit
these architectures is extremely challenging. Moreover, current
state-of-the-art approaches may become unworkable once energy consumption,
resilience, and data movement constraints are added. The goal of this
workshop is to attract the international research community to share new
and bold ideas that will address the challenges of design, implementation,
deployment, and evaluation of future runtime systems and middleware.


This workshop will emphasize novel, disruptive research ideas over
incremental advances. We will solicit papers on topics including, but not
limited to, the following areas:

Runtime System/Middleware Design, Evaluation and Usage

* Runtime/Middleware for emerging HPC and cloud computing platforms
* Runtime/Middleware for Big Data Computing
* Modeling and Performance Analysis of Runtime Systems
* Comparison studies of different runtime systems and middleware
* Tuning and Optimization studies
* Interactions between Runtime Systems and Middleware
* Runtime-architecture co-design

Constraints and Issues for Runtime Systems and Middleware

* Energy- and Power-aware schemes
* Fault Tolerance and Reliability
* Scalable high-performance I/O and access to Big Data
* Memory management
* Runtime data analysis (e.g., in-situ analysis)
* Real-time solutions and QOS
* Virtualization, provisioning, and scheduling
* Scalability of novel runtime systems and applications using them

Design Principles and Programming Support

* High-level programming models (e.g., thread and task based models, data
parallel models, and stream programming) and domain-specific languages
* Programming frameworks, parallel programming, and design methodologies
* Methodologies and tools for runtime and middleware design, implementation
, verification, and evaluation
* Wild and crazy ideas on future Runtime System and Middleware


We invite two kinds of submissions to this workshop: (1) Full-length
research papers (8-page limit); (2) Short papers (4-page limit), which can
take the form of position papers, experience reports, or
surveys/comparisons of runtime systems and middleware. Papers should not
exceed eight (or four) single-spaced pages (including figures, tables and
references) using 10-point font on 8.5x11-inch pages. Submissions will be
judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, significance,
presentation quality, and appropriateness. Submitted papers should not have
appeared in or under consideration for another venue. A full peer-review
process will be followed with each paper being reviewed by at least 3
members of the program committee.

Submissions should follow the IEEE Conference Proceedings templates found
Camera-ready copy will need to conform to IPDPS guidelines; these will be
announced during author notification

Papers can be submitted at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ipdrm17
