OpenSuCo 1 (ISC17)

2017 International Workshop on Open Source Supercomputing

OpenSuCo 2017

Thursday, June 22, 2017 – 09:00 to 13:00 MEZ

Held in conjunction with the 2017 ISC High Performance Computing Conference, Frankfurt, Germany
Candela Room, Frankfurt Marriott Hotel

The OpenSuCo Workshop seeks to encapsulate a wealth of effort in design, prototyping, and cross-functional collaboration of open source hardware, software, and scientific computing projects in a singular point of technical discussion and exchange. As the limits of MOSFET/Dennard scaling grow ever closer, the high performance/technical computing community continually seeks new methods by which to continue scaling system performance and, potentially, system efficiency. We solicit papers according to (but not limited to) three technical tracks as follows:

Hardware Software Collaboration
  • ISA & processors
  • System and network interconnects
  • Simulation & emulation
  • Early hardware evaluations
  • System software & OS
  • Programming models, tools & tool chains
  • Numerical solvers
  • Application infrastructures
  • Co-design projects and methods
  • Cross-disciplinary projects
  • International collaborations

All accepted papers will be published in the Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series associated with ISC-HPC 2017.
Papers need to be formatted according to Springer’s single column LNCS style, in either LaTeX or Word formats. Papers are limited to 8 pages including figures, references, the abstract, and everything else. Selected papers will be published in ISC’s 2017 workshop proceedings with Springer. Authors will have a chance to revise their papers according to feedback they receive during the workshop and submit a camera-ready version by July 22nd 2017.
