International Workshop on Autonomic High Performance Computing
CALL FOR PAPERS AND PARTICIPATION
As part of
The International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2015)
July 20 – July 24, 2015
The Hilton Amsterdam Hotel
Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Submission Deadline: April 15, 2015
Submissions could be for full papers, short papers, poster papers, or posters
SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES
Due to the increasing complexity, scale and heterogeneity in computing systems and applications, including hardware, software, sensors, communication and networks, there are needs for Autonomic Computing (AC) focusing on self-manageable systems that exhibit self-configuration, self-healing, self-protection, self-optimization, and/or self-monitoring. It is getting even more critical with the ubiquitous permeation of embedded devices.
The purpose of this workshop is intended to bring together specialists and researchers in those converging specialties to share views and address technical issues and developments for autonomic and high performance computing.
The AHPC Workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
Autonomic computing systems that exhibit self-configuration, self-healing, self-protection, self-optimization, and/or self-monitoring
Software engineering principles and architectures
Data analysis and decision techniques
Theory and practice of autonomic systems
Management of resources including hardware, workloads, faults, security, power, and other challenges
Hypervisor, operating systems, hardware, or application support for autonomic computing
Knowledge-based and/or intelligent user interfaces
Self-adaptability and self-management of context-aware systems
Modeling, virtualization, operating systems or application in autonomic computing
Biologically inspired computing (evolutionary algorithms, cellular automata, DNA computation, amorphous computing, etc)
Applications of autonomic computing and experiences in science, engineering, business and society
You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to autonomic and high performance computing. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. For Regular papers, please submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript, not to exceed 8 double-column IEEE formatted pages, and include up to 6 keywords and an abstract of no more than 400 words. Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and all authors email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author(s). Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster papers and poster (please refer to http://hpcs2015.cisedu.info/home/cts-2015-posters for posters submission details) will also be accepted. Please specify the type of submission you have. Please include page numbers on all preliminary submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments.
Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript using the Workshop EasyChair web site at https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ahpc2015. Submissions will be acknowledged within 48 hours.
Only PDF files will be accepted, uploaded to the link above. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, significance, technical clarity and presentation. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper will have to register and attend the HPCS 2015 conference to present the paper at the workshop.
Accepted papers will be published in the Conference proceedings. Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the HPCS 2015 Conference web site. It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of the conference. The proceedings is projected to be included in the IEEE Digital Library and indexed in all major indexing services accordingly.
If you have any questions about paper submission or the workshop, please contact the workshop organizers.
