Workshop09-AHPC

The 4th International Workshop on Autonomic High Performance Computing
(AHPC 2018)



CALL FOR PAPERS & PARTICIPATION


As part of
The 16th International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2018)
July 16 – 20, 2018
Orléans, France


Paper Submission Deadline: April 12, 2018 - Extended

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, communications 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 and IoT devices, Clouds and Big Data. 

Autonomic computing requires monitoring, decision making, resource management, and actuation capabilities.  The works span a wide spectrum of topics and expertise such as distributed systems, computer architecture, middleware services, databases and data-stores, high speed networks, machine learning, and control theory.

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, self-awareness, and/or self-monitoring 
  • Software engineering principles and architectures in Autonomic Computing
  • Algorithms: machine learning, operations research, probability and stochastic processes, queueing theory, rule-based systems, biological-inspired techniques, and socially-inspired techniques 
  • Control-based approaches and Control Theory applied to Autonomic High Performance Computing systems
  • Autonomic components: hardware accelerators, multi-core servers, storage, and networking
  • Data analysis and decision techniques
  • Monitoring systems
  • Theory and practice of autonomic systems
  • Self-Organization and Organic Computing
  • Management of resources including hardware, workloads, faults, security, power, and other challenges
  • Hypervisor, operating systems, middleware, hardware, or application support for autonomic computing
  • Knowledge-based and/or intelligent user interfaces
  • Self-adaptability and self-management of context-aware systems
  • Cognitive computing and self-awareness in HPC and distributed systems
  • Modeling, virtualization, operating systems or application in autonomic computing
  • Biologically inspired computing (evolutionary algorithms, cellular automata, DNA computation, amorphous computing, etc)
  • Autonomic Cloud, Fog, and Edge Computing and Services
  • Autonomic solutions in Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) and Internet of Things (IoT) 
  • Autonomic solutions in security and integrity 
  • Applications of autonomic computing and experiences in science, engineering, business and society

INSTRUCTIONS FOR PAPER SUBMISSIONS
You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to autonomic high performance and distributed computing. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere until it appears in HPCS proceedings, in the case of acceptance, or notified otherwiseSubmission can be for
Regular papers, please submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript, not to exceed 8 double-column formatted pages per template, 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) although all authors are equally responsible for the manuscript. 
Short papers (up to 4 pages), please submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript, not to exceed 4 double-column formatted pages per template, 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) although all authors are equally responsible for the manuscript.
Poster papers and Posters (please refer to http://hpcs2018.cisedu.info/1-call-for-papers-and-participation/call-for-posters  for posters submission details) will also be considered. 

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 to the Workshop paper submission site at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ahpc2018 .  Acknowledgement will be sent within 48 hours of submission. 

Conference Policies
Only PDF files will be accepted, uploaded to the submission 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, language, and references.  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 2018 conference to present the paper at the Workshop as scheduled. By submitting the paper to the HPCS conference, all authors agree to abide by all HPCS conference paper submission, publication and presentation policies as well as following ethical and professional codes of conduct, including those of the professional co-sponsoring organizations. For more information, please refer to the Authors Info and Registration Info pages. 

Proceedings
Accepted papers will be published in the Conference proceedings. Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the HPCS 2018 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 or ACM Digital Library and indexed in all major indexing services accordingly. 

SPECIAL ISSUE
Plans are underway to have the best papers, in extended version, selected for possible publication in a reputable journal as special issue. Detailed information will soon be announced and will be made available on the conference website. 

If you have any questions about paper submission or the Workshop, please contact the workshop organizers.
