High-Performance Grid and Cloud Computing Workshop

May 19, 2014, Phoenix, Arizona, USA

in conjunction with

International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium - IPDPS 2014
May 19-23, 2014,
Phoenix, Arizona, USA

Note: This year, several submissions from the CloudFlow workshop were included in HPGC

  • Applications: Theory and practice of high performance clouds, grid, and distributed computing.
  • Application resilience and elasticity in high performance clouds and grids
  • Infrastructure: Implementation and evaluation of services for and in distributed computing.
  • Management and Monitoring: Resource management, monitoring, and pricing.
  • Scheduling: Application scheduling, workflow management.
  • Networking: Bandwidth allocation, data routing, co-scheduling of network and compute resources.
  • Resource allocation: Mapping data and applications on distributed resources.
  • Programming Models: Middleware for remote execution. Interaction of hosts and accelerators (OpenCL, CUDA, OpenMP, OpenACC).
  • Virtualization: Virtualization of computing, storage, and network resources.
  • Performance Evaluation

Paper Submission

We invite submissions not exceeding ten single-spaced pages (IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Manuscripts style: two columns). Submitted papers may not have appeared in or be under consideration for another workshop, conference, or journal. Each paper will be refereed by at least three independent reviewers. Paper submission indicates the intention of the author to present the paper at the HPGC workshop at IPDPS 2014.

The HPGC workshop proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society along with the IPDPS conference proceedings.
