1 Scope

The workshop is focused on the design, implementation, execution, and analysis of experiments in parallel and distributed computing (including HPC, Clouds, Networking, Big Data) to improve the reproducibility of results.

2 Keywords

Reproducibility, Parallel Computing/HPC, Open Science, Data Provenance, Scientific Workflows

3 Topics addressed in the workshop include:

  • Experimental design of parallel computing experiments
  • Experiences and best practices for conducting experiments (including papers that address the reproduction of other articles)
  • Supporting reproducibility in experimental testbeds for parallel computing
  • Tools for reproducible research (e.g., control of experiments, versioning, archiving)
  • Analysis of experimental data (e.g., visualization, statistical analysis, provenance)
  • Automated uncertainty quantification for experimental workflows (or data-focused workflows)
  • Systems to incorporate (potentially very large) data into automated testing frameworks
  • Sustainable models for public data sharing
  • Ideas on artifact evaluation in Distributed Computing and HPC
  • Improving the review process in Parallel Computing
  • Open Science and Parallel Computing
  • Performance non-regression testing

4 Paper Types

  • full papers (10 pages)
  • short papers (8 pages)

5 Demos and Tutorials

We welcome demos and tutorials addressing (potential) solutions to the reproducibility (replicability) problem. Please contact us directly if you want to give a tutorial (demo).
