Dear Colleague,

[Our apologies if you receive multiple copies of this CFP]


Second International Workshop on Systems and Network Telemetry and Analytics

Phoenix, AZ, USA, June 25, 2019  (https://easychair.org/cfp/SNTA2019)

To be held in conjunction with ACM HPDC 2019, June 24-28, 2019 (


The tasks of systems and network telemetry are key elements for effective
operations and management of HPC and distributed computing systems, by
offering comprehensive monitoring and analysis capabilities to provide the
visibility into what is occurring at any time. The tasks will be
significantly complicated with the greater complexity of computing systems,
increasing network speed, and the newly introduced smart edge systems
including mobile and IoT devices. Such changes will render the existing
telemetry and analysis techniques to be outdated, and more scalable
techniques may be in place for data-driven and deeper data analysis. In
addition to the quantitative and qualitative challenges, data pressure in
systems and networks also comes from various sources such as end systems,
routers, firewalls, sensors, and the newly emerging network elements
speaking with different syntax and semantics, which makes organizing and
incorporating the generated data difficult for extensive analysis.

This workshop aims at bridging the systems and network telemetry and the
latest advances in machine learning and data science technologies, to
advance the performance and reliability of HPC and distributed systems. New
analysis techniques are needed with the advancement of the systems and
networks as well as the availability of the data collection, from the
diverse angles of performance, availability, and security. For example,
real-time streaming analytics algorithms and methods need to be explored
for estimating network performance and summarizing the traffic variables to
capture the network activities due to the network bandwidth increase.
Multivariate analysis of telemetric variables may be able to provide the
intuitive, comprehensive view of the systems and networks dynamics. New
logging and I/O techniques are also needed with the latest development in
the storage and archival technologies. In addition, many applications in
this area may need to address the application-specific requirements and
challenges. This workshop intends to share visions of investigating new
approaches and methods at the intersection of HPC systems and data
