The 11th International Workshop on 
Dependable and Resilient Many-Core and Exascale Computing
(DRMEC 2020)


CALL FOR PAPERS & PARTICIPATION

As part of 
The 18th International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2020)
10 - 14 December 2020
Barcelona, Spain (Virtual/Online event)


 Paper Submission Deadline: 25 September 2020

Submissions could be for full papers, short papers, poster papers, or posters



SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES
Computing systems with a large number of processing units are increasingly common, both in the form of processors employing multiple execution cores (e.g., multi-core CPUs, GPUs, accelerators), or computing clusters with a large number of nodes. These many-core architectures bring up new capabilities, opportunities, as well as challenges. As the number of cores increases, so does the probability to have faults, both due to hardware issues (e.g., physical defects introduced during fabrication), software problems (e.g., a single crashed process bringing down the whole computation) or communication issues in the network infrastructure. The same can be said about the anticipated exascale computing systems.

This workshop focuses on software and/or hardware solutions to dependability, resilience, and fault-tolerance in multi- and many-core systems as well as in exascale computing.

The DRMEC Workshop topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following: 

  • Dependable, Fault-Tolerant and Resilient  Many-Core Architectures
  • Hardware and Software Debug Facilities
  • Many-Core Programming and Optimization for Dependability
  • Fault-tolerant Programming Models for Many-Core Systems
  • Case Studies of HW/SW failures in Many-Core systems
  • Virtualization/Containers for Dependability
  • System-level Approaches to Error Detection and Fault Tolerance at Large Scale
  • Power-Aware Many-Core Resilient Design
  • Many-Core Interconnect Technology
  • Formal Techniques for Dependable HW/SW Design
  • Dependability, Resilience and Fault Tolerance in Exascale Systems
  • Fault-tolerant Many-Core Runtime Systems
  • Silent Error Detection and Mitigation in Many-Core Systems
  • Solutions Based on Non-Volatile Memory for Many-Core Dependability
  • Fault-Tolerant HW/SW Co-Design
  • Algorithmic-based Fault Tolerance for Many-Core systems
  • Many-Core Development and Design Tools and support
  • Modeling and Simulation of Dependable and Fault Tolerant Systems

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://hpcs2020.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's paper submission site at  xxx. 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 soundness, 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 (virtually) the HPCS 2020 conference to present the paper at the Symposium 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 2020 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's organizers.
