RADR 2019: 1st Workshop on Resource Arbitration for Dynamic Runtimes

Held in conjunction with IPDPS 2019
Friday, 24 May 2019
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil



The question of efficient dynamic allocation of compute-node resources, such as
cores, by independent libraries or runtime systems can be a nightmare.
Scientists writing application components have no way to efficiently specify
and compose resource-hungry components. As application software stacks become
deeper and the interaction of multiple runtime layers compete for resources
from the operating system, it has become clear that intelligent cooperation is
needed. Resources such as compute cores, in-package memory, and even electrical
power must be orchestrated dynamically across application components, with the
ability to query each other and respond appropriately. A more integrated
solution would reduce intra-application resource competition and improve
performance. Furthermore, application runtime systems could request and
allocate specific hardware assets and adjust runtime tuning parameters up and
down the software stack.

The goal of this workshop is to gather and share the latest scholarly research
from the community working on these issues, at all levels of the HPC software
stack. This include thread allocation, resource arbitration and management,
containers, and so on, from runtime-system designers to compilers. We will also
use panel sessions and keynote talks to discuss these issues, share visions,
and present solutions.

For this workshop we welcome original work, presenting state of the practice and
state of the art and covering different aspects of resource arbitration, thread
placement, and resource management at the system level for parallel
applications on multicore systems. We also welcome surveys, position
papers, and standardization proposals. Submitted manuscripts may not exceed ten
(10) single-spaced double-column pages using 10-point size font on 8.5x11 inch
pages (IEEE conference style), including figures, tables, and references.
