The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners in parallel programming models and systems software for high-end computing systems. Please join us in a discussion of new ideas, experiences, and the latest trends in these areas at the workshop.

The PDF version of this Call for Papers is present here.


The focus areas for this workshop include, but are not limited to:

  • Programming models and their high-performance implementations
    • MPI, Sockets, OpenMP, Global Arrays, X10, UPC, Chapel, Fortress and others
    • Hybrid Programming Models
  • Systems software for scientific and enterprise computing
    • Communication sub-subsystems for high-end computing
    • High-performance File and storage systems
    • Fault-tolerance techniques and implementations
    • Efficient and high-performance virtualization and other management mechanisms for high-end computing
  • Tools for Management, Maintenance, Coordination and Synchronization
    • Software for Enterprise Data-centers using Modern Architectures
    • Job scheduling libraries
    • Management libraries for large-scale system
    • Toolkits for process and task coordination on modern platforms
  • Performance evaluation, analysis and modeling of emerging computing platforms


Proceedings of this workshop will be published by the IEEE Computer Society (together with the ICPP conference proceedings) in CD format only and will be available at the conference.


Submissions should be in PDF format in U.S. Letter size paper. They should not exceed 8 pages (all inclusive). Submissions will be judged based on relevance, significance, originality, correctness and clarity.
