Call for Papers

REX-IO 2023: 3rd Workshop on Re-envisioning Extreme-Scale I/O for
Emerging Hybrid HPC Workloads

Held in conjunction with IEEE Cluster 2023, Santa Fe, NM, USA.

Workshop Date: October 31, 2023



Call for WiP Submissions
REX-IO 2023 will host a Work-in-Progress (WiP) session where presenters 
provide short talks on their on-going work, with fresh problems and/or 
solutions. WiP content is typically material that may not be mature or 
complete enough for a full paper submission. A two-page abstract is 
required. All accepted WiP submission (subject to post-review revisions) 
will be published in the IEEE Cluster 2023 proceedings.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Understanding I/O inefficiencies in emerging workloads such as complex 
multi-step workflows, in-situ analysis, AI, and data analytics methods
- New I/O optimization techniques, including how ML and AI algorithms 
might be adapted for intelligent load balancing and I/O pattern 
prediction of complex, hybrid application workloads
- Performance benchmarking and modeling, and I/O behavior studies of 
emerging workloads
- New possibilities for the I/O optimization of emerging application 
workloads and their I/O subsystems
- Efficient monitoring tools for metadata and storage hardware 
statistics at runtime, dynamic storage resource management, and I/O load 
- Parallel file systems, metadata management, and complex data management
- Understanding and efficiently utilizing complex storage hierarchies 
beyond the traditional two-tiered file system and archive model
- User-friendly tools and techniques for managing data movement among 
compute and storage nodes
- Use of staging areas, such as burst buffers or other private or shared 
acceleration tiers for managing intermediate data between computation tasks
- Application of emerging big data frameworks towards scientific 
computing and analysis
- Alternative data storage models, including object and key-value 
stores, and scalable software architectures for data storage and archive
- Position papers on related topics

Submission Guidelines
All WiP submissions must be original and not simultaneously submitted to 
another journal or conference. Indicate all authors and affiliations. 
All WiP will be reviewed using a single-blind peer-review process. 
Submissions should be a complete manuscript. WiP submissions should not 
exceed 2 single-spaced, double-column pages using 10-point size font on 
8.5 X 11 inch pages (IEEE conference style) including everything 
excluding references.

WiP submissions are to be submitted electronically in PDF format and 
should not have appeared in or be under consideration at a different 
venue. It is also expected that all accepted WiP submissions will be 
presented at the workshop by one of the authors.

All accepted WiP submissions will be published in the IEEE Cluster 2023 
conference proceedings.

Submission Instructions:
Please send your WiP submission to the REX-IO'23 Workshop Co-Chairs via 
email: rexio23[at]easychair[DOT]org. Please use "REX-IO'23 WiP 
Submission" as the subject.
