The ROSS workshop, to be held as a full-day meeting at the ICS 2011 conference in Tucson, Arizona, focuses on principles and techniques to design, implement, optimize, or operate runtime and operating systems for supercomputers and massively parallel machines. ROSS provides a timely and lightweight forum for scientists and engineers to present the latest ideas and findings in this rapidly changing field.
The topics include but are not limited to:
