SYSTEMSTo be held at EUROPAR 2014 <http://europar2014.dcc.fc.up.pt/>, Porto,
Portugal , August 25-26, 2014

The ever-increasing data and processing requirements of applications from
various domains are constantly pushing for dramatic increases in
computational and storage capabilities. Today, we have reached a point where
computer systems’ growth cannot be addressed anymore in an incremental
way, due to the huge challenges lying ahead, in particular scalability,
energy barrier, data management, programmability, and reliability.Ultrascale
computing systems (UCS) are envisioned as a large-scale complex system
joining parallel and distributed computing systems, maybe located at
multiple sites, that cooperate to provide solutions to the users. As a
growth of two or three orders of magnitude of today’s computing systems is
expected, including systems with unprecedented amounts of heterogeneous
hardware, lines of source code, numbers of users, and volumes of data,
sustainability is critical to ensure the feasibility of those systems. Due
to those needs, currently there is an emerging cross-domain interaction
between high-performance in clouds or the adoption of distributed
programming paradigms, such as Map-Reduce, in scientific applications, the
cooperation between HPC and distributed system communities still poses many
challenges towards building the ultrascale systems of the future. Especially
in unifying the services to deploy sustainable applications portable to HPC
systems, multi-clouds, data centers, and big data.TASUS workshop focuses on
the software side, aiming at bringing together researchers from academia and
industry interested in the design, implementation, and evaluation of
services and system software mechanisms to improve sustainability in
ultrascale computing systems with a holistic approach.

We are looking for original high quality research and position papers on
applications, services, and system software for sustainable ultrascale
systems. Topics of interest include:

Existing and emerging designs to achieve sustainable ultrascale systems.
High-level parallel programming tools and programmability techniques to
improve applications sustainability on ultrascale platforms. (model driven,
refactoring, dynamic code generation, unified services, middlewares, …).

Synergies among emerging programming models and run-times from HPC,
distributed systems, and big data communities to provide sustainable
execution models (increased productivity, transparency, elasticity, …).

New energy efficiency techniques for monitoring, analyzing, and modeling
ultrascale systems, including energy efficiency metrics for multiple
resources (computing, storage, networking) and sites.
Eco-design of ultrascale components and applications, with special emphasis
on energy-aware software components that help users to shape energy issues
for their applications.
Sustainable resilience and fault-tolerant mechanisms that can cooperate
throughout the whole software stack to handle errors.
Fault tolerance techniques in partitioned global address space (e.g. PGAS,
MPI, hybrid) and federated cooperative environments.
Data management optimization techniques through cross layer adaptation of
the I/O stack to provide global system information to improve data locality.
Enhanced data management lifecycle on scalable architectures combining HPC
and distributed computing (clouds and data centers).
Experiences with applications, high-level algorithms, and services amenable
to ultrascale systems.

Paper submission guidelines
Full papers should not exceed 12 pages in the Springer LNCS style. The usage
of LaTeX for preparation of the contribution as well as the submission in
camera ready format is strongly recommended. The 12 pages limit is a hard
limit. It includes everything (text, figures, references) and will be
strictly enforced by the submission system. Download LNCS Latex style HERE.
submission has to be performed electronically via the conference Web site in
PDF format. Papers accepted for publication must also be supplied in source
<https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=europar2014ws> to submit a
paper.Papers must offer original contributions regarding the theory and
practice of parallel and distributed computing. Full submission guidelines
are available on the conference website. Only contributions not submitted
elsewhere for publication will be considered.Workshop proceedings will be
published in a separate LNCS Euro-Par 2014 volume after the conference.
Authors of accepted papers will be requested to sign a Springer copyright
Journal special issue
Extended versions of distinguished selected papers accepted and presented in
TASUS 2014, after further revisions, will be published in a special issue of
the journalSimulation Modelling Practice and Theory (SIMPAT
that is indexed in JCR.
