AER 2013

Title:International Workshop on Algorithmic and Application Error Resilience (AER'13)
Submission Deadline:2013-05-01
Webpage:http://aer-workshop.org
Dates:June 11th, 2013
Location:Eugene, Oregon, USA
Contact Email:aer.workshop@gmail.com
Synopsis:
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 focuses on techniques, approaches, and principles for algorithmic and application error resilience.

ROME 2013

Title:1st Workshop on Runtime and Operating Systems for the Many-core Era
Submission Deadline:2013-05-31
Webpage:http://www.lfbs.rwth-aachen.de/users/global/ROME2013/
Dates:August, 26-26, 2013
Location:Aachen, Germany
Contact Email:lankes@lfbs.rwth-aachen.de
Synopsis:
Since the beginning of the multicore era, parallel processing has become prevalent across the board. However, in order to continue a performance increase according to Moore's Law, a next step needs to be taken: away from common multicores towards innovative many-core architectures. Such systems, equipped with a significant higher amount of cores per chip than multicores, pose challenges in both hardware and software design. The ROME workshop is addressed to the new challenges in hardware/software co-design of runtime and operating systems in order to exploit the theoretically available performance as effectively as possible.

Synopsis:
(Note change of focus and procedure from previous years) OPODIS is an open forum for the exchange of state-of-the-art knowledge on all aspects of distributed computing and distributed computer systems. Where OPODIS has traditionally strongly theoretical, this year we also solicit contributions on the boundary between theoretical solutions and practical implementations, covering experimentation and quantitative assessments. Reviewing and selection of papers will be done in two phases. (1) Quick filtering by a small committee + immediate notification; (2) thorough reviewing process by ≥4 PC members.
