Workshop on Operating System Interference
in High Performance Applications - OSIHPA
Call for Papers - Deadline Extended
To be held with the 14th International Conference on
Parallel Architectures and Compilation Techniques,
Saint Louis, Missouri http://pact05.ce.ucsc.edu/
Scope and Motivation
High performance applications require efficient coordination of execution between parallel processes to insure that high bandwidth, low latency communications can be utilized to the fullest potential. Having the individual components of a parallel application depended upon uncoordinated efforts of commodity operating system schedulers can reduce the performance of a parallel machine significantly. Furthermore, the performance can be reduced to the point that scalability is impaired. The goal of the workshop is to better understand the impact that operating system interference has on multithreading, increased scalability and other new technologies.
In this workshop, we seek to bring together diverse participants who are managing this problem through hardware, scheduling, operating systems and compilers. We encourage active participation from processor architects, system architects, operating systems designers, virtual machine architects, compiler writers, performance analysts, and developers. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to)
We invite participation from both researchers and developers, who have knowledge of operating system interference in parallel environments that should be shared. We will accept a paper submission of 6-8 pages in length which should be written in standard IEEE format for conference proceedings. It is expected that an accepted submission of this type will result in a final paper appearing in the workshop's proceedings. The proceedings will be distributed at the workshop and made available at the workshop web site
Submit compressed PDF files to firstname.lastname@example.org before on Submission Deadline above.
