HPC Systems Professionals Workshop

Submission Deadline - August 4th, 2017

Supercomputing systems present complex challenges to personnel who
design, deploy and maintain these systems. Standing up these systems
and keeping them running require novel solutions that are unique to
high performance computing. The success of any supercomputing center
depends on stable and reliable systems, and HPC Systems Professionals
are crucial to that success.

The Second Annual HPC Systems Professionals Workshop will bring
together systems administrators, systems architects, and systems
analysts in order to share best practices, discuss cutting-edge
technologies, and advance the state-of-the-practice for HPC systems.
Submissions are encouraged that discuss all aspects of HPC systems
design, implementation, maintenance, and security.

Topics of Interest
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

   * Cluster, configuration, or software management
   * Performance tuning/Benchmarking
   * Resource manager and job scheduler configuration
   * Monitoring/Mean-time-to-failure/ROI/Resource utilization
   * Virtualization/Clouds
   * Designing and troubleshooting HPC interconnects
   * Designing and maintaining HPC storage solutions
   * Cybersecurity and data protection

Authors are invited to submit original, high-quality papers with an
emphasis on solutions that can be implemented by other members of the
HPC systems community. Papers should be submitted in PDF format and
should be between 6 and 8 pages including tables, figures and
appendices, but excluding references. Lightning Talks should be
submitted as a 1-2 paragraph abstract.  All submissions should be
formatted according to the SC Proceedings template. Similar to the
SC17 policy, margins and font sizes should not be modified.  All
submissions should be submitted electronically through EasyChair.

Proceedings will be published in both IEEE Explore and the ACM Digital
library through collaboration with ACM SIGHPC.
