13th Workshop on Scalable Computing(WSC’23)
The world of large-scale computing continuously evolves. The most recent addition to the mix comes from numerous data streams that materialize from exploding number of cheap sensors installed “everywhere”, on the one hand, and ability to capture and study events with systematically increasing granularity, on the other. To address the needs for scaling computational and storage infrastructures, concepts like: edge, fog and dew computing emerged.
Novel issues in involved in “pushing computing away from the center” did not replace open questions that existed in the context of grid and cloud computing. Rather, they added new dimensions of complexity and resulted in the need of addressing scalability across more and more complex ecosystems consisting of individual sensors and micro-computers (e.g. Raspberry PI based systems) as well as supercomputers available within the Cloud (e.g. Cray computers facilitated within the MS Azure Cloud).
Addressing research questions that arise in individual “parts” as well as across the ecosystem viewed from a holistic perspective, with scalability as the main focus is the goal of the Workshop on Scalable Computing. In this context, the following topics are of special interest (however, this list is not exhaustive).
Covered topics include (but are not limited to):
- Algorithms, programming and data models for large-scale applications, simulations and systems
- Architectures for large-scale computations (Accelerators – GPUs, Vector, FPGAs, quantum systems, federated systems, etc.)
- HPC in Cloud
- Large-scale computing with serverless and microservices
- Large-scale symbolic, numeric, data-intensive, graph-oriented, distributed computations
- Resilient, fault-tolerant and consensus techniques for large-scale computing
- Large-scale distributed databases and repositories
- Load-balancing/intelligent resource management in large-scale applications, simulations and systems
- Performance analysis, evaluation, and optimisation for large-scale applications and systems
