[hpc-announce] [CFP: ExaComm 2021 - Deadline Extension] 6th International Workshop on Communication Architectures for HPC, Big Data, Deep Learning, and Clouds at Extreme Scale (ExaComm 2021) in Conjunction with ISC 2021

Call For Papers (Digital Workshop)
Sixth International Workshop on Communication Architectures for
HPC, Big Data, Deep Learning and Clouds at Extreme Scale
to be held in conjunction with
International Supercomputing Conference 2021
Friday July 2, 2021
Extreme Scale computing in HPC, Big Data, Deep Learning and Clouds are
marked by multiple-levels of hierarchy and heterogeneity ranging from the
compute units (many-core CPUs, GPUs, APUs etc) to storage devices (NVMe,
NVMe over Fabrics etc) to the network interconnects (InfiniBand,
High-Speed Ethernet, Omni-Path etc). Owing to the plethora of heterogeneous
communication paths with different cost models expected to be present in
extreme scale systems, data movement is seen as the soul of different
challenges for exascale computing. On the other hand, advances in
networking technologies such as NoCs (like NVLink), RDMA enabled networks
and the likes are constantly pushing the envelope of research in the field
of novel communication and computing architectures for extreme scale
The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and software/hardware
designers from academia, industry and national laboratories who are involved
in creating network-based computing solutions for extreme scale architectures.
The objectives of this workshop will be to share the experiences of the members
of this community and to learn the opportunities and challenges in the design
trends for exascale communication architectures.
ExaComm 2021 will be held (digitally) as a full day workshop in conjunction
with the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC 2021), on Friday, July 2.
ExaComm 2021 welcomes original submissions in a range of areas, including
but not limited to:
* Scalable communication protocols
* High performance networks
* Runtime/middleware designs
* Impact of high performance networks on Deep Learning / Machine Learning
* Impact of high performance networks on Big Data
* Novel hardware/software co-design
* High performance communication solutions for accelerator based computing
* Power-aware techniques and designs
* Performance evaluations
* Quality of Service (QoS)
* Resource virtualization and SR-IOV
Papers should present original research and should provide sufficient
background material to make them accessible to the broader community.
Details coming soon.

Paper Submission and Registration
Abstracts and papers need to be submitted via the EasyChair conference management
system. We request the authors to use the LNCS style (single column format) using
either the LaTeX document class or Word template. For details on the author
guidelines, please refer to Springer's website (http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0).
Incorrectly formatted papers will be excluded from the reviewing process. Submission
must be made as a single PDF file which includes all figures and bibliography.
Submissions are accepted under the following two categories:
* Full Paper: 12 pages with all figures and bibliography in the LNCS format described above
* Short Paper: 8 pages with all figures and bibliography in the LNCS format described above
Papers should present original research and should provide sufficient background
material to make them accessible to the broader community. It should not be submitted
in parallel to any other conference or journal. At least one of the authors of each
accepted paper must register as a participant of the workshop and present the paper
at the workshop. Each research paper will be taken through a comprehensive peer review
process by an internationally recognized group of experts in the field. Papers will
be evaluated along the metrics of:
a) Quality of Presentation;
b) Novelty / Originality;
c) Relation to State of the Art;
d) Technical Strength;
e) Significance of Work; and
f) Relevance to Workshop.
Every effort will be made to ensure that each paper receives multiple reviews.
Please contact the Workshop Organizers for any questions / clarifications.
The papers accepted to be presented in ExaComm'21 will be published in a separate,
post-conference joint ISC workshop proceedings volume, published online with Springer
It serves the purpose to share your paper during the workshop day and to foster
discussions. These PDFs will be deleted a week after the conference. You may adjust
your paper for the camera-ready version after the workshop day and improve it based
on the feedback received.
The process for preparing the conference-ready and camera-ready versions of accepted
papers is described below.
There are two deadlines you have to consider:
* Conference-ready deadline: Friday, May 21, 2021
* Camera-ready deadline: Early August, 2021
The conference-ready paper version will be hosted during the conference and the link
will be shared with workshop attendees. It serves the purpose to share your paper
during the workshop day and to foster discussions. These PDFs will be deleted a week
after the conference. You may adjust your paper for the camera-ready version after the
workshop day and improve it based on the feedback received. The camera-ready version
will be prepared for publication with Springer.
Papers need to be formatted according to Springer's single column LNCS style (LaTeX or Word).
More details coming soon.
