                        CALL FOR PAPERS

   Eleventh International Workshop on Parallel Programming Models 
      and Systems Software for High-End Computing (P2S2), 2018 
             to be held in conjunction with ICPP 2018:
      The 47th International Conference on Parallel Processing

         Join us in Eugene, Oregon on August 13th, 2018!


In the past decade, high-end computing (HEC) architectures have become
an important tool in all aspects of scientific discovery. Having
ushered in an era where HEC-enabled simulation is considered a third
pillar of science along with theory and experiment, HEC architectures
have quickly become a credible direction of focussed and long-term
research. Rapid advances are taking place in different aspects of HEC
architectures in an effort to improve performance. Recently, multi-
and many-core systems (Intel, AMD), alternative architectures and
accelerators (GPGPUs, Cell), high-speed network architectures
(InfiniBand, Myrinet, iWARP), and integrated computing platforms (Blue
Gene, Cray) have been introduced along this effort.

These advances in the fundamental architecture of HEC architectures
mean little, however, without appropriate software components that
enable high-performance applications to take advantage of these
architectures. System software plays a crucial role in exposing the
raw performance of the underlying hardware in an efficient manner.
Equally important are innovative, high-performance Parallel
Programming models that enable scientists to express parallel
algorithms so that they can execute efficiently on HEC architectures.

=== Scope ===

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and
practitioners in parallel programming models and systems software for
high-end computing architectures. Please join us in a discussion of
new ideas, experiences, and the latest trends in these areas at the

=== Topics of Interest ===

The focus areas for this workshop include, but are not limited to:

- Systems software for high-end scientific and enterprise computing
    - Communication sub-subsystems for high-end computing
    - High-performance File and storage systems
    - Fault-tolerance techniques and implementations
    - Efficient and high-performance virtualization and other
      management mechanisms for high-end computing
- Programming models and their high-performance implementations
    - MPI, Sockets, OpenMP, Global Arrays, X10, UPC, CAF, Chapel, and
    - Hybrid Programming Models
- Tools for Management, Maintenance, Coordination and Synchronization
    - Software for Enterprise Data-centers using Modern Architectures
    - Job scheduling libraries

    - Toolkits for process and task coordination on modern platforms
- Performance evaluation, analysis and modeling of emerging computing

=== Journal Special Issue === 

The P2S2-2018 workshop papers will be invited to extend the
manuscripts to be considered for a Special Issue on Parallel
Programming Models and Systems Software of the Elsevier International
Journal of Parallel Computing (PARCO), edited by Min Si, Abhinav
Vishnu, and Yong Chen. This special issue is dedicated for the papers
accepted in the P2S2 workshop. The submission to this special issue is
by invitation only.
