Call for Papers

*MCHPC'21: Workshop on Memory Centric High Performance Computing*
             held in conjunction with SC21: The International Conference on
High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis and in
cooperation with IEEE TCHPC

Time/Date: 9:00AM - 5:30PM, U.S. Central Standard Time, Sunday, November
14, 202
Location: America’s Center, St. Louis, MO


Submission Deadline: September 8th, 2021


The growing disparity between CPU speed and memory speed, known as the
memory wall problem, has been one of the most critical and long-standing
challenges in the computing industry. The situation is further complicated
by the recent expansion of the memory hierarchy, which is becoming deeper
and more diversified with the adoption of new memory technologies and
architectures including 3D-stacked memory, non-volatile random-access
memory (NVRAM), memristor, hybrid software and hardware caches, etc.
Computer architecture and hardware system, operating systems, storage and
file systems, programming stack, performance model and tools are being
enhanced, augmented, or even redesigned to address the performance,
programmability and energy efficiency challenges of the increasingly
complex and heterogeneous memory systems for HPC and data-intensive

The MCHPC workshop aims to bring together computer and computational
science researchers, from industry, government labs and academia, concerned
with the challenges of efficiently using existing and emerging memory
systems for high performance computing. The term performance for memory
system is general, which include latency, bandwidth, power consumption and
reliability from the aspect of hardware memory technologies to what is
manifested in the application performance. The topics of interest for the
MCHPC workshop include, but are not limited to:

   - The challenges and software and hardware solutions of using 3-D stack
   memory, NVDIMM, memristor and other processor/compute-in-memory technology.
   - Programming interfaces or language extensions that improve the
   programmability of using emerging memory technologies and systems.
   - Compiler and runtime techniques for optimizing data layout, movement
   and consistency enforcement for latency hiding and for improving bandwidth
   utilization and energy consumption of memory systems.
   - Enhancement or new development for operating systems, storage and file
   systems, and I/O system that address existing and emerging memory systems.
   - Modeling, evaluation, and case study of memory system behavior and
   application performance that reveals the limitations and characteristics of
   existing memory systems.
   - Application development and optimization for memory architecture and

*Submission*Authors are invited to submit manuscripts in English structured
as technical papers up to 8 pages or as short papers up to 5 pages, both of
letter size (8.5in x 11in) and including figures, tables, and references.
Submissions not conforming to these guidelines may be returned without
review. Your paper should be formatted using IEEE conference format which
can be found from https://www.ieee.org/conferences/publishing/templates.html.
The workshop encourages submitters to include reproducibility information,
using Reproducibility Initiative for SC'21 Technical Papers as guideline.

All manuscripts will be peer-reviewed and judged on correctness,
originality, technical strength, and significance, quality of presentation,
and interest and relevance to the workshop attendees. Submitted papers must
represent original unpublished research that is not currently under review
for any other conference or journal. Papers not following these guidelines
will be rejected without review and further action may be taken, including
(but not limited to) notifications sent to the heads of the institutions of
the authors and sponsors of the conference. Submissions received after the
due date, exceeding length limit, or not appropriately structured may also
not be considered. At least one author of an accepted paper must register
for and attend the workshop. Authors may contact the workshop organizers
for more information.

Papers should be submitted electronically at:
https://submissions.supercomputing.org/, choose "SC21 Workshop: MCHPC'21:
Workshop on Memory Centric High Performance Computing".

The final papers are planned to be published through IEEE TCHPC. Published
proceedings will be included in the IEEE Xplore digital library.
