            2nd Workshop on Interoperability of Supercomputing and Cloud 

            held as part of ISC20, Frankfurt, Germany Thursday – June 
25, 2020

Submission deadline: March 20, 2020

--- *Overview* ---

This workshop aims at bringing together a group of experts and 
practitioners from academia, national laboratories, and industry to 
discuss technologies, use cases and best practices in order to set a 
vision and direction for leveraging high performance, extreme-scale 
computing and on-demand cloud ecosystems. Topics of interest include 
tools and technologies enabling scientists for adopting scientific 
applications to cloud interfaces, interoperability of HPC and cloud 
resource management and scheduling systems, cloud and HPC storage 
convergence to allow a high degree of flexibility for users and 
community platform developers, continuous integration/deployment 
approaches, reproducibility of scientific workflows in distributed 
environment, and best practices for enabling X-as-a-Service model at 
scale while maintaining a range of security constraints.

This workshop will cover topics related to interoperability of 
supercomputing and cloud computing, networking and storage technologies 
that are being leveraged by use cases and research infrastructure 
providers with a goal to improve productivity and reproducibility of 
extreme-scale scientific workflows.

--- *Topics* ---

* Virtualization for HPC e.g. virtual machines, containers, etc.
* Storage systems for HPC and cloud technologies
* On-demand and interactivity with performance, scaling and cost 
* Resource management and scheduling systems for HPC and cloud technologies
* Software defined infrastructure for high-end computing, storage and 
* Application environment, integration and deployment technologies
* Secure, high-speed networking for integrated HPC and cloud ecosystems
* Extreme data and compute workflows and use cases
* Research infrastructure deployment use cases
* Resiliency and reproducibility of complex and distributed workflows
* Isolation and security within shared HPC environments
* X-as-a-Service technologies with performance and scalability
* Workflow orchestration using public cloud and HPC data centre resources
* Authentication, authorization and accounting interoperability for HPC 
and cloud ecosystems
* Workforce development for integrated HPC and cloud environments

--- *Submission Guidelines* ---

Submissions accepted via EasyChair: 

All submissions must be in English and should follow the LNCS style 
(single column format) using either the LaTeX document class or Word 
template. Incorrectly formatted papers will be excluded from the 
reviewing process. Submission must be made as a single PDF file which 
includes all figures and references. Papers should not be submitted in 
parallel to any other conference or journal.

The Workshop will accept up to 5 pages extended abstract by the extended 
abstract submission deadline (see Important Dates below). Authors of 
selected abstracts, after a peer-reviewed process, will be invited to 
submit a full paper before the workshop (12 pages maximum in LNCS 
format, including figures and references) and to present their work on 
June 25, 2020. A camera-ready deadline will allow to slightly adjust 
their contributions based on the feedback given during the workshop. 
Full papers will be published in the ISC 2020 workshop proceedings with 
Springer. The proceedings will appear as post-conference workshop 
proceedings. Please refer to ISC Workshop site 
https://www.isc-hpc.com/workshops-2020.html for further details.
