1st Workshop on High Performance Serverless Computing 

Serverless computing represents the next significant leap forward with
respect to abstracting commoditized computing resources. The main principle
of serverless computing is that compute providers deploy and manage the
entire compute environment---from hardware through to runtime in which an
application executes; users, therefore, think entirely at the level of their
application without regard for the underlying computing environment. For
example, the function as a service (FaaS) model allows users to first
register a programming function (e.g., in Python) and then they may invoke
that function many times with different input arguments.

Serverless computing is poised to become not only the face of cloud
computing in the commercial world but also a model for remote and
distributed computing more broadly. The 1st workshop on High Performance
Serverless Computing will provide the high performance and distributed
computing community with a dedicated forum for discussing foundational
research in serverless computing in both industry and academia. The workshop
will bring together these communities and provide a forum for innovation in
both the high performance and distributed systems that underlie serverless
computing platforms and also the use of serverless models for abstracting
traditional high performance and distributed computing systems.

Programming paradigms for serverless computing
Data management for serverless computing
Applications of serverless computing
Benchmarking and performance of serverless computing
On-demand and event-based computation
Serverless economics and billing models
Fault tolerance and reliability
Data-intensive workloads and tools
Productivity tools (Debugging, Profiling, Logging, etc)
Stream and events processing
Security in serverless
Heterogeneous computing (GPU, Accelerators, exotic architectures)

Authors are invited to submit papers describing unpublished, original
research. All submitted manuscripts should be formatted using the ACM Master
Template with sigconf format (please be sure to use the current version).
All necessary documentation can be found at:

Papers may be either full (8 pages) or short (4 pages) including all text,
figures, and references. Papers will be peer-reviewed (single blind), and
accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings as part of the
ACM Digital Library.

Papers conforming to these guidelines should be submitted through EasyChair:
