9th Workshop on Fault-Tolerance for HPC at eXtreme Scale (FTXS 2019)

In conjunction with The International Conference for
High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis (SC19)
Dallas, Texas, USA November 17 - 22, 2019

Important Dates
* Submissions open: July 1, 2019
* Submission of papers: August 27, 2019
* Author notification: September 27, 2019
* Camera-ready papers: TBA

Authors are invited to submit original papers on the research and practice of 
fault-tolerance in extreme-scale distributed systems (primarily HPC systems, 
but including grid and cloud systems).  Resilience and fault-tolerance remain 
a major concern for supercomputing and advances in this area are needed to 
allow applications to compute accurate (or within an acceptable error tolerance) 
answers in a timely and efficient manner in the presence of degradations or 
failures of platform components (both hardware and software).

Topics include, but are not limited to:
* Failure data analysis and field studies
* Power, performance, resilience (PPR) assessments / tradeoffs
* Novel fault-tolerance techniques and implementations
* Emerging hardware and software technology for resilience
* Silent data corruption (SDC) detection / correction techniques
* Advances in reliability monitoring, analysis, and control of  highly 
   complex systems
* Failure prediction, error preemption, and recovery techniques
* Fault-tolerant programming models
* Models for software and hardware reliability
* Metrics and standards for measuring, improving, and enforcing
  effective fault-tolerance
* Scalable Byzantine fault-tolerance and security from single-fault and
   fail-silent violations
* Atmospheric evaluations relevant to HPC systems (terrestrial
   neutrons, temperature, voltage, etc.)
* Near-threshold-voltage implications and evaluations for reliability
* Benchmarks and experimental environments including fault injection
* Frameworks and APIs for fault-tolerance and fault management

Submissions are solicited in the following categories:
* Regular papers presenting innovative ideas improving the state of the art or 
   discussing the issues seen on existing extreme-scale systems, including some 
   form of analysis and evaluation.
* Extended abstracts proposing disruptive ideas and challenging assumptions in 
   the field, including some form of preliminary results.

Extended abstracts will be evaluated separately and given shorter oral presentations.

Submissions shall be sent electronically, must conform to SC19 proceedings style.  Regular 
papers should not exceed ten (10) pages including all text, appendices, figures, and 
references.  Extended abstract papers should not exceed six (6) pages.  Papers should be
submitted at: https://submissions.supercomputing.org.
