Workshop on Sustainable Ultrascale Computing Systems.
Thursday, June 28, 2018, Marriott Frankfurt Hotel
This workshop is aimed to present high quality research topics related to Sustainable Ultrascale Computing Systems. (UCS) are envisioned as large-scale complex systems joining parallel and distributed computing systems, maybe located at multiple sites that cooperate to provide solutions to the users, that will be two to three orders of magnitude larger that today s systems. Sustainability is understood not only in terms of energy, but also related to programmability, usability, and maintenance to facilitate the adoption of UCS.
The workshop is aimed present the major results of the COST Action IC1305, “Network from Sustainable Ultrascale Computing Systems (NESUS)”. Ultrascale computing systems, included the Research Roadmap proposed. But it is also open for external speakers proposing realistic solutions addressing major challenges of building sustainable ultrascale computing systems, as well as developing collaborative activities among the involved research groups to target cross-layer design issues to offer a unified view of ultrascale platforms.
The topics of the workshop are shown below.
- New programming paradigms, runtimes, and middlewares: techniques to increase productivity, scalability, and reliability of parallel and distributed programming; new programming models suitable for UCS; adaptive runtimes for parallel and distributed systems ; and malleable applications that can adapt their resource usage at runtime.
- New approaches of continuous running in the presence of failures: resilient schedulers; reactive and proactive error handling; and monitoring and assessment of failures.
- Sustainable data management proposals for addressing the predicted exponential growth of digital information. synergistic approaches for the whole data life cycle in parallel and distributed systems; new proposal to enhance the Input/Output (I/O) stack; proposal for advanced predictive and adaptive data management; and techniques to improve data locality.
- Energy efficiency of ultrascale systems: novel metrics for energy monitoring, profiling and modeling in ultrascale components and applications; energy-aware resource management; and hardware/software codesign techniques to enhance energy.
- Applications: high-level algorithms, and services amenable to UCS; redesign and reprogramming techniques for applications to efficiently exploit ultrascale platforms; energy-aware algorithms.
