Call for Papers: FTS'18: 4th International Workshop on Fault Tolerant Systems
September 10, 2018. Belfast, UK

Co-Located with IEEE CLUSTER 2018


Full papers due: Jul 10th, 2018
Paper Acceptance Notification: Jul 20th, 2018
Camera-ready deadline: Jul 31st, 2018
Workshop: Sept 10th, 2018


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


We invite the submission of original work that is related to the topics below.
The papers can be either short (4 pages) position papers, or long (8 pages)
research papers.

Topics of interest include (in the context of fault tolerance):
- Techniques for predicting, detecting, and correcting silent data corruption
- 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 analytics
- Algorithms for performance optimization in the presence of faults
- Techniques and algorithms for rollback recovery


Camera-ready version of accepted papers must be compliant with the IEEE Xplore
format for publication and must be at most 8 pages including figures and
references. Authors of accepted papers may purchase additional up to 2 pages.
Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register
and present the paper.

Papers conforming to the above guidelines can be submitted through the
workshop's submission system:
