International Workshop on Algorithmic and Application Error Resilience
AER 2013

Held in conjunction with the
27th International Conference on Supercomputing (ICS 2013)

June 10th, 2013
Eugene, Oregon, USA

Circuit and logic variability from process scaling is leading to significant
reliability problems in future systems. The increasingly stringent power
constraints on system designs are making prior hardware and software-based
fault tolerance approaches impractical due to their heavy reliance on redundant,
worst-case, and conservative designs. Instead, algorithm-based approaches
provide applications the flexibility to adapt to inherent application error
tolerances and leverage the patterns of higher level abstractions.

The AER workshop, to be held as a full-day meeting at the ICS 2013 conference
in Eugene, Oregon, focuses on techniques, approaches, and principles for
algorithmic and application error resilience.

Topics of Interest:
* Algorithm design principles for error resilience
* Algorithmic error resilience implementations
* Techniques for massively parallel resilient applications
* Application fault detection and correction
* Hardware fault and application error models
* Application error resilience analysis and case studies
* Tools for analyzing application vulnerability to errors
* Optimizations for exploiting error resilience
* System design and automation

The AER workshop proceedings will be published electronically along with the
ICS conference proceedings via the ACM Digital Library. Submitted manuscripts
should be formatted using the ACM SIG proceedings alternate format
( The maximum
length is 8 pages. All papers must be in English. Please visit the workshop
website for further instructions and the submission link
