                             CALL FOR PAPERS

3rd IEEE International Workshop on RESource DISaggregation in High
Performance Computing (RESDIS’23)

To be held in conjunction with The International Conference for High
Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis (SC’23) on November 17,


Disaggregation is an emerging compute paradigm that splits existing monolithic
servers into a number of consolidated single-resource pools that communicate
over a fast interconnect. This model decouples individual hardware resources,
including tightly coupled ones such as processors and memory, and enables the
composition of logical compute platforms with flexible and dynamic hardware

The concept of disaggregation is driven by various recent trends in
computation. From an application perspective, the increasing importance of
data analytics and machine learning workloads in HPC centers brings
unprecedented need for memory capacity, which is in stark contrast with the
growing imbalance in the peak compute-to-memory capacity ratio of traditional
system board based server platforms where memory modules are co-located with
processors.  Meanwhile, traditional simulation workloads leave memory
underutilized. At the hardware front, the proliferation of heterogeneous,
special purpose computing elements promotes the need for configurable compute
platforms, while at the same time, the increasing maturity of optical
interconnects raises the prospects of better distance independence in
networking infrastructure.

The workshop intends to explore various aspects of resource disgregation,
composability and their implications for high performance computing, both in
dedicated HPC centers as well as in cloud environments.

- Disaggregated hardware in high-performance computing
- Operating systems and runtime support for disaggregated platforms
- Simulation of disaggregated platforms with existing infrastructure
- Runtime systems and programming abstractions for disaggregation and
- Networking for disaggregation, including silicon photonics and optical
- Implications of resource disaggregation for scientific computing and
  HPC applications
- Algorithm design for disaggregated and composable systems
- Disaggregated high throughput storage
- Disaggregated heterogeneous accelerators (GPUs, FPGAs, AI Accelerators, etc.)
- Resource management in disaggregated and composable platforms
