RADR 2021: 3rd Workshop on Resource Arbitration for Dynamic Runtimes

Held in conjunction with IPDPS 2021
Friday, 21 May 2021
Portland, Oregon, USA.



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.
