Full papers or work-in-progress reports are sought that are within the scope of the workshop and related to the OpenPOWER ecosystem. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to

  • Porting applications experiences to OpenPOWER nodes to exploit its HPC and data analytics capabilities

  • Designs and use models for FPGA-accelerated applications

  • Co-designing the HPC software stack (scientific libraries, compilers, runtimes)

  • Programming models for HPC and data analytics, including hybrid heterogeneous programming (e.g. MPI with OpenCL, OpenACC, CUDA, OpenMP4) models, DSLs, PGAS, and exascale runtimes

  • Tools eco-system to improve productivity on OpenPOWER architectures (compilers, performance analysis, auto-tuning, debugging, verification, static analysis tools)

  • System architectural choices including memory designs, networking

  • Low level communication APIs, I/O frameworks

  • Runtime environments and schedulers

  • Benchmarking and validation studies on OpenPOWER architectures

All contributions are planned to be published in ISC’16 Joint Workshop Proceeding Volume. For full papers and work-in-progress reports a limit of 18 and 6 pages apply, respectively. Paper submissions should be formatted with the LNCS style (single column format) using either the LaTeX document class or Word template. For details on the author guidelines, please refer to Springer’s website.
