                             CALL FOR PAPERS

International Workshop on Runtime and Operating Systems for Supercomputers
                           ***  ROSS 2023  ***

Held in conjunction with SC23: The International Conference for High
Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis,
Denver, Colorado, USA, November 12, 2023


The complexity of node architectures in supercomputers increases as we
cross milestones on the way towards Exascale and beyond. Increasing levels
of parallelism in multi- and many-core chips and emerging heterogeneity of
computational resources coupled with energy and memory constraints force a
reevaluation of our approaches towards operating systems and runtime

The ROSS workshop, to be held as a half-day event in conjunction with the
SC23 conference, focuses on principles and techniques to design,
implement, optimize, or operate runtime and operating systems for
massively parallel supercomputers and cloud environments for
high-performance computing.

In addition to typical workshop publications, we encourage novel and
possibly immature ideas, provided that they are interesting and on-topic.
Well argued position papers are also welcome.


- OS and runtime system scalability on many-node and multi/many-core
- management of heterogeneous and reconfigurable compute resources,
  including FPGAs, GPUs, etc.
- distributed/hybrid/partitioned OSes and runtime systems for
- system noise analysis and prevention
- runtime and operating systems for resource disaggregation
- modeling and performance analysis of runtime systems
- the use of machine learning and AI techniques in the autotuning of
  system software
- OS and runtime considerations for large-volume, high-performance I/O
- memory management and emerging memory technologies
- OS and runtime aspects of HPC in the cloud, convergence of
  Supercomputing and cloud environments
- infrastructure for cloud functions and serverless computing in the
  context of HPC
- virtualization in HPC, including virtual machines and application
- the role of OS and runtime system in minimizing power usage
