Workshop on Modeling and Simulation of Parallel Systems

Final Submission Deadline
April 1, 2017

International Workshop on Modeling and Simulation of Parallel Systems (MSPS 2017)—hpcs2017/workshop20-mspds
in conjunction with The International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2017)
Genoa, Italy
July 17–21, 2017

Paper Submissions: April 1, 2017
Notification of Acceptance: April 20, 2017
Registration & Camera-Ready Manuscripts Due: May 3, 2017
Conference Date: July 17-21, 2017

Large parallel systems have become mainstream of both commercial and scientific computing. Shared-memory systems with hundreds of processors are commercially available, while a new generation of massively parallel systems have pushed the limits of scalability to unprecedented levels. Designing and understanding these systems requires new simulation and modeling approaches that can be effective at those scales. New software- and hardware-based simulation techniques have been developed to cope with those challenges.

The goal of this workshop is to promote the discussion and presentation of new research and development in the area of simulation and modeling of large parallel systems. We encourage original contributions in the following areas:

– Simulation of Exaescale Systems
– Simulation of Interconnection Architectures and Technologies
– Workload Characterization to help Simulation Studies
– Parallel and Distributed Simulators
– Hardware accelerators for simulating parallel systems
– Bootstraping: Using a current generation system to design the next generation
– Modeling and simulation at the data centers level
– Use of reconfigurable logic for simulation of parallel systems
– Parallel and Distributed Discrete-Event Simulation
– Machine learning for developing models of parallel systems
– New and novel approaches to modeling and simulation of large and complex systems
– Evaluation Methods and Studies

You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to modeling and simulation of high performance parallel and distributed computing systems. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. 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). Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster papers and posters will also be considered. Please specify the type of submission you have. Visit the workshop web site for additional details.

Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript to the workshop paper submission site at Acknowledgement will be sent within 48 hours of submission.

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 2017 conference to present the paper at the workshop.

Accepted papers will be published in the Conference proceedings. Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the HPCS 2017 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.
