3rd International Workshop on Fault Tolerant Systems (FTS 2017)
(Call for Papers)

September 5, 2017 @ Honolulu, Hawaii, USA

Important dates

Paper abstract submission: June 22, 2017
Full papers due: July 2, 2017
Deadlines are Anywhere on Earth (AoE)


FTS 2017 is the 3th edition of the FTS workshop series, organized in
conjunction with the 2017 IEEE International Conference on Cluster 
(Cluster 2017).

Fault Tolerance is a cross-cutting issue that spans all layers of the
hardware/software stack, and hence, requires coupled improvements in 
layer and co-design between the different layers. FTS aims at providing 
venue for researchers to share experiences across the hardware/software 
and attendees to get a holistic view of fault tolerance techniques, 
with a focus on HPC and parallel computing.

The focus areas for this workshop include, but are not limited to:
  * Techniques for predicting, detecting, and correcting silent data 
  * Hardware failure prediction and recovery techniques
  * Novel hardware design for fault mitigation
  * Programming interfaces and libraries to facilitate resilience
  * Resilient algorithm design for application level fault tolerance
  * Failure modeling and analysis
  * Checkpoint/restart model and replication model
  * Fault injection techniques for improved tool development
  * Hardware and software fault detection and reporting systems
  * Fault tolerance for coupled executions, workflows, and in situ data 
  * Algorithms for performance optimization in the presence of faults
  * Techniques and algorithms for rollback recovery
