[Condor-users] CFP: The 3rd IEEE Workshop on Many-Task Computing on Grids and Supercomputers (MTAGS) 2010, co-located with Supercomputing 2010 -- November 15th, 2010

Call for Papers

The 3rd IEEE Workshop on Many-Task Computing on Grids and Supercomputers (MTAGS) 2010
http://dsl.cs.uchicago.edu/MTAGS10/ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
November 15th, 2010
New Orleans, Louisiana, USA

Co-located with with IEEE/ACM International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis (SC10)
The 3rd workshop on Many-Task Computing on Grids and Supercomputers (MTAGS) will provide the scientific community a dedicated forum for presenting new research, development, and deployment efforts of large-scale many-task computing (MTC) applications on large scale clusters, Grids, Supercomputers, and Cloud Computing infrastructure. MTC, the theme of the workshop encompasses loosely coupled applications, which are generally composed of many tasks (both independent and dependent tasks) to achieve some larger application goal. This workshop will cover challenges that can hamper efficiency and utilization in running applications on large-scale systems, such as local resource manager scalability and granularity, efficient utilization of raw hardware, parallel file system contention and scalability, data management, I/O management, reliability at scale, and application scalability. We welcome paper submissions on all topics related to MTC on large scale systems. Papers will be peer-reviewed, and accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings as part of the IEEE digital library (pending approval). The workshop will be co-located with the IEEE/ACM Supercomputing 2010 Conference in New Orleans Louisiana on November 15th, 2010. For more information, please see http://dsl.cs.uchicago.edu/MTAGS010/.

We invite the submission of original work that is related to the topics below. The papers can be either short (5 pages) position papers, or long (10 pages) research papers. Topics of interest include (in the context of Many-Task Computing): * Compute Resource Management * Scheduling

Paper Submission and Publication
Authors are invited to submit papers with unpublished, original work of not more than 10 pages of double column text using single spaced 10 point size on 8.5 x 11 inch pages, as per IEEE 8.5 x 11 manuscript guidelines; document templates can be found at ftp://pubftp.computer.org/Press/Outgoing/proceedings/instruct8.5x11.pdf and ftp://pubftp.computer.org/Press/Outgoing/proceedings/instruct8.5x11.doc. We are also seeking position papers of no more than 5 pages in length. A 250 word abstract (PDF format) must be submitted online at https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/MTAGS2010/ before the deadline of August 25th, 2010 at 11:59PM PST; the final 5/10 page papers in PDF format will be due on September 1st, 2010 at 11:59PM PST. Papers will be peer-reviewed, and accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings as part of the IEEE digital library (pending approval). Notifications of the paper decisions will be sent out by October 1st, 2010. Selected excellent work may be eligible for additional post-conference publication as journal articles or book chapters; see this year's ongoing special issue in the IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems (TPDS) at http://dsl.cs.uchicago.edu/TPDS_MTC/. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper. For more information, please visit http://dsl.cs.uchicago.edu/MTAGS10/.
