    2017 Workshop on Open Source Supercomputing (OpenSuCo-2017)
                        Denver, CO, USA
               Held in conjunction with SC17

                      CALL FOR PAPERS

Increased specialization is an effective way for the HPC to continue
performance scaling at the end of MOSFET scaling. To decrease design cost -
both money and time, rapid hardware prototyping methods combined with
software stacks and programming models must to be explored.

Open source solutions may provide the best opportunities for specialization
and the OpenSuCo Workshop seeks to encapsulate a wealth of effort in design,
prototyping, and cross-functional collaboration of open source hardware,
software, and scientific computing projects in a singular point of technical
discussion and exchange. As the limits of MOSFET/Dennard scaling grow ever
closer, the high performance/technical computing community continually seeks
new methods by which to continue scaling system performance and,
system efficiency. The goal of this workshop is to engage the HPC community
and explore open-source solutions for constructing an HPC system – from
to applications.

Important Dates

Submission Deadline: 2017 September 15, 23:59 AOE
Author Notification: 2017 October 06
Camera-Ready Deadline: 2017 October 13

Topics of Interest
We invite the community to submit both papers and proposals for "lightning
The demo session will provide attendees the opportunity to give short
(5-min) demos
of software or hardware technology that could forward the construction of
source HPC systems.

We solicit papers according to (but not limited to) three technical tracks
as follows:

- Hardware
-- ISA & processors
-- System and network interconnects
-- Simulation & emulation
-- Early hardware evaluations

- Software
-- System software & OS
-- Programming models, tools & tool chains
-- Numerical solvers
-- Application infrastructures

- Collaboration
-- Co-design projects and methods
-- Cross-disciplinary projects
-- International collaborations

- Lightning Demo
-- Prototype hardware (FPGA or ASIC) demonstrations
-- Application demonstrations
-- Live benchmarking or performance analysis demos
