                             CALL FOR PAPERS

                        Springer Cluster Computing
        The Journal of Networks, Software Tools and Applications
                       Editor-in-Chief: Salim Hariri
Special Issue on Unconventional Cluster Architectures and Applications
               Guest Editors: Federico Silla, Holger Fr?ning
                http://www.hucaa-workshop.org/clustersi2013
                   Paper submission: February 17th, 2013
======================================================================

This CLUSTER COMPUTING JOURNAL special issue gears to gather recent
work on unconventional cluster architectures and applications, which
potentially have a big impact on defining future cluster architectures.
This includes any cluster architecture that is not based on the usual
commodity components and therefore makes use of some special hard- or
software elements, or that is used for very special and unconventional
applications. Examples include GPUs, MICs (Many Integrated Core), FLASH
and FPGAs on the hardware side, and run-time management,
virtualization, in-memory storage and device-to-device communication on
the software side. We are in particular encouraging work on disruptive
approaches, which may show inferior performance today but can already
point out their full performance potential. The broad scope of the
special issue facilitates submissions on unconventional uses of
hardware or software, gearing to gather ideas that are coming to life
now and not limiting them except for their context: clusters.

We are seeking new proposals presented from a holistic perspective. In
this regard, one of the aims of the special issue is anticipating the
evolution of clusters, instead of just presenting new work carried out
in the traditional cluster areas usually addressed in other journals
and conferences.


TOPICS OF INTEREST
Topics of interest include any unconventional cluster architecture or
application. Examples include, but are not limited to:
- High-performance, data-intensive, and power-aware computing
- Application-specific clusters, datacenters, and high performance
       cloud architectures
- Software cluster-level virtualization for consolidation purposes
- Principles from organic computing applied to cluster architectures
- Hardware techniques for disaggregation of resources
- Management techniques for large-scale systems
- New uses of GPUs, FPGAs, and other specialized hardware
- Dedicated support for novel parallel programming paradigms like PGAS
       or MapReduce
- New industry and technology trends and their potential impact on one
       of the above


IMPORTANT DATES
- Paper submission: February 17th, 2013
- Notification of acceptance: May 1st, 2013
- Final Manuscript Due: June 3rd, 2013	
- Publication of Special Issue: 4th Quarter 2013

********************************************************************************
The hpc-announce mailing list has been setup to have a common mailing
list to share information with respect to upcoming HPC related
events. You are included in this mailing list based on your
participation or interest in a previous HPC conference or other event.

The purpose for providing a single mailing list is to allow
participants to easily identify such emails, and handle them
appropriately. Some options include:

1. If you feel that the number of such emails is too many, filter them
to less-frequently-read folders in your email client.

2. Change your subscription to a digest option
(https://lists.mcs.anl.gov/mailman/listinfo/hpc-announce) which will
consolidate emails sent that week into a single summary email.

3. Finally, if you do not wish to receive any emails from hpc-announce,
you can unsubscribe from the mailing list
(https://lists.mcs.anl.gov/mailman/listinfo/hpc-announce). Once
unsubscribed, we guarantee that you will not be added back in through
participation in a different HPC related conference or event. You will
need to send an email to hpc-announce-owner at mcs.anl.gov to be added
back on.

If you need help with any of the above, please email us at
hpc-announce-owner at mcs.anl.gov.
