Call for Papers

International Workshop on
Sustainable HPC Cloud (SHPCloud12)

November 10-16, 2012, Salt Lake City, Utah
Sponsored by ACM/IEEE Supercomputing Conference 2012


Unlike traditional HPC clusters, HPC Cloud computing offers better
resource utilization and more software flexibility to researchers.
There are also challenges. These include virtual machine administration
complexities and significant less performance compared to traditional
HPC clusters. Information security is also a concern. There is a clear need
to rethink application architectures that can best exploit HPC cloud
advantages but also avoid the pitfalls.

There are already applications that can effectively leverage the
virtual HPC hardware.
Many are data intensive. This workshop seeks credible experiences in using HPC
cloud for different types of applications.

Topics of Interest
Suggested Areas (but not limited to):

Investigative Reports:
* Computation intensive applications without failure and recovery
* Computation intensive applications with failure and recovery
* Cloud performances for data intensive applications

Failure Detection and Prevention Experiences:
* Experiences in non-main stream HPC paradigms
* Experiences in using auction-based cloud resources
* Experiences in virtualized GPU for HPC applications
* Experiences in virtualized network for HPC applications
* Innovative failure prevention and recovery methods

Information Security:
* HPC security considerations using cloud resources
* Communication infrastructure virtualization experiences
* Private cloud implementation experiences

Resource Usage and Prediction:
* Innovative cloud auction pricing models
* Resource usage prediction models

Important Dates:
* Paper submission deadline: 9/22/2012. 5pm EST. (Extended)
* Notification of acceptance: 10/15/2012, 2012 10am EST.
* Final Manuscript Due: 10/25/2012 5pm EST.
* Registration Due: 10/17/2012
* Conference Date: 11/10-16/2012

Submission Instructions:

Prospective authors are invited to submit manuscripts reporting
original unpublished research and recent related developments.
Papers must be submitted in PDF format (readable by Adobe Acrobat
Reader 5.0 and higher). Submissions are limited to 10 pages in
the IEEE conference proceedings format. Shorter papers are also
welcome. The 10-page limit includes figures, tables, and appendices,
but does not include references, for which there is no page limit.
Margins and font sizes should not be modified. Templates can be
