1st International Workshop on 
Advances in High-Performance Algorithms Middleware and Applications

Held in conjunction with the the 18th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster, Cloud and Grid Computing (CCGRID 2018), Washington, DC, USA May 1-4 2018 

The Workshop on Advances in High-Performance Algorithms Middleware  and Applications is an international forum which brings together researchers and practitioners working on different high-performance aspects of algorithms, middleware and technologies enabling novel applications. Middleware technologies include tools to assemble together different resources such as parallel supercomputers, data archives, high-speed storage systems, advanced visualization devices and scientific instruments using high speed networks connecting geographically distributed devices and organizations. Many recent international efforts are actively fostering the development of such applications and technologies. The Workshop will allow exchanging ideas and results related to on-going research, focusing on high-performance aspects of algorithms and applications. 

Creating breakthrough parallel algorithms for high-performance applications requires addressing several key computing problems which may lead to novel solutions and new insights in interdisciplinary applications. The focus of the workshop is on all forms of advances in high-performance algorithms middleware and applications, and related topics. For example, the following topics are relevant to the workshop:

- Scalable message-passing parallel algorithms using MPI
- Scalable shared-memory parallel algorithms using OpenMP
- GPGPU parallel algorithms using OpenCL or CUDA
- Green High-Performance Computing
- Exploiting modern parallel architectures including FPGA, many-cores and multi-cores for parallel applications
- Middleware for high-performance computing
- Benchmarking and performance studies of high-performance applications
- Novel programming paradigms to support high-performance computing
- Performance models for high-performance applications and middleware
- Efficient job scheduling for high-performance applications
- Performance-aware resource reservation
- Security-related performance issues 
- Programming models, tools, and environments for high-performance computing
- Caching, streaming, pipelining, and other optimization techniques for data management in high-performance computing
- Peer-to-peer systems for high-performance grid and cloud environments
- Optimization techniques for mobile grids

Submission Guidelines

The results presented in the paper must be unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere, including the proceedings of other conferences or workshops. Papers will be peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers. Papers are evaluated with respect to originality, significance, clarity, and technical soundness. One author of each accepted paper will be expected to present the paper at the workshop. Authors are invited to submit papers electronically in PDF format. Submitted manuscripts should be structured as technical papers and may not exceed 10 letter-size (8.5 x 11) pages including all figures, tables and references using the IEEE format for conference proceedings. Papers need to be submitted through Easy Chair following this link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ahpama1
