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 GPU and FPGA-accelerated applications
  • Co-designing the HPC software stack (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
  • Power-aware computing and power optimization studies for OpenPOWER
  • Benchmarking and validation studies on OpenPOWER architectures

All contributions are planned to be published in ISC'17 Joint Workshop Proceeding Volume. For full papers and work-in-progress reports a limit of 18 and 6 pages apply, respectively. Papers need to be formatted according to Springer's single column LNCS style (see http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0 for LaTeX and Word templates). The copyright will need to be transferred to Springer. A copyright form will be provided, which allows users to use self-archiving.

Papers should be uploaded here: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iwoph17
