Colorado, USA.

                                     EXTENDED DEADLINE: AUGUST 30, 2019


Node architectures of extreme-scale systems are rapidly increasing in
complexity. Emerging homogeneous and heterogeneous designs provide massive
multi-level parallelism, but developing efficient runtime systems and
middleware that allow applications to efficiently and productively exploit
these architectures is extremely challenging. Moreover, current state-of-
the-art approaches may become unworkable once energy consumption, resilience,
and data movement constraints are added. The goal of this workshop is to
attract the international research community to share new and bold ideas
that will address the challenges of design, implementation, deployment, and
evaluation of future runtime systems and middleware.


This workshop will emphasize novel, disruptive research ideas over incremental
advances. We will solicit papers on topics including, but not limited to, the
following areas:

Runtime System/Middleware Design, Evaluation and Usage

* Runtime/Middleware for emerging HPC and cloud computing platforms
* Runtime/Middleware for Big Data Computing
* Modeling and Performance Analysis of Runtime Systems
* Comparison studies of different runtime systems and middleware
* Tuning and Optimization studies
* Interactions between Runtime Systems and Middleware
* Runtime-architecture co-design

Constraints and Issues for Runtime Systems and Middleware

* Energy- and Power-aware schemes
* Fault Tolerance and Reliability
* Scalable high-performance I/O and access to Big Data
* Memory management
* Runtime data analysis (e.g., in-situ analysis)
* Real-time solutions and QOS
* Virtualization, provisioning, and scheduling
* Scalability of novel runtime systems and applications using them

Design Principles and Programming Support

* High-level programming models (e.g., thread and task based models, data
  parallel models, and stream programming) and domain-specific languages
* Programming frameworks, parallel programming, and design methodologies
* Methodologies and tools for runtime and middleware design, implementation,
  verification, and evaluation
* Wild and crazy ideas on future Runtime System and Middleware


Paper Submission: EXTENDED August 30th 2019
Paper Notification: September 27th, 2019
Final Paper Due: October 11th, 2019

Submission Guidelines:

Full submission will be up to 8 pages long using the same format as the SC19
conference (i.e. using the ACM SIG proceedings template).  All submitted
papers will undergo a rigorous review process and each will have at least
three reviews by members of the program committee. Papers will be accepted
based on their technical contributions. "Crazy and Wild ideas" are welcome.
Accepted papers will have quick lighting presentations on the workshop day
to spark conversation and discussion. Papers can be submitted using the
