Call for Papers
The ROSS workshop, to be held as a full-day event in conjunction with the SC21 conference, 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. 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.
The topics include, but are not limited to:
- OS and runtime system scalability on many-node and multi/many-core systems
- management of heterogeneous and reconfigurable compute resources, including FPGAs, GPUs, etc.
- distributed/hybrid/partitioned OSes and runtime systems for Supercomputing
- system noise analysis and prevention
- interaction between middleware, runtime system, and the OS
- modeling and performance analysis of runtime systems
- the use of 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, including virtualization and containers
- the role of OS and runtime system in minimizing power usage
