D-HPC'23: The First International Workshop on Democratizing High-Performance Computing
held in conjunction with SC23, The International Conference on High-Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis
Denver, Colorado
November 12th-17th 2023
Workshop date: Sunday November 12th, 1:30pm-5pm MST

Call for Papers

D-HPC invites submissions of full technical papers for inclusion in the SC23 workshops proceedings. To meet our scientific goals, we require that the presented conclusions are based on rigorous analysis of empirical data, rather than anecdotal. This implies quantifying the accessibility in experiences and use-cases with a strong focus on novel or practical solutions, challenges and impact of their before/after scenarios.

Topics of interest, but are not limited to :

* The impact of programming languages and models, compiler techniques, libraries, domain-specific languages (DSLs), communication, data frameworks and ecosystems in improving access to HPC applications
* Making the convergence of HPC + AI more accessible
* HPC accessibility to big data experiments
* Accessible exascale and post-Moore heterogeneous hardware: quantum computing hardware, new architectures: many-core, accelerators, GPUs, file systems, neuromorphic systems, FPGA, chiplets, etc.
* AI techniques to improve HPC accessibility: generative AI tools, e.g. GPT, machine and deep learning models.
* Multidisciplinary end-to-end co-design practices, processes, paradigms that provide accessible HPC: e.g. fault tolerance designs, data reduction, porting to new architectures, proxy applications
* Virtualization techniques that provide performance portable cross-system access (e.g. containers)
* Proposed metrics and the theoretical framework for studies quantifying accessibility in future procurement systems based on existing empirical data
* Standards and ecosystem sustainability requirements based on empirical data for accessible future systems

Examples of metrics used for HPC accessibility are, but not limited to:

* Scalable performance improvements from providing HPC access to new problems and communities
* The number of core-hours, user or developer time, failure rates, time to overall solution, energy metrics as a result of leveraging accessibility
* The economics, benefits and impact of porting existing code to new architectures
*Technology adoption rates and communities impacted due to accessibility improvements

Out of Scope:

* Papers describing the technical merits of a particular technology or methodology without showing metrics that illustrate their impact on making HPC more accessible
* Position or review papers and papers highlighting the community or educational aspects only
* Papers describing merits on advancing a specific scientific application domain rather than HPC access
* Papers that do not describe targeted HPC systems or communities benefiting from improved accessibility

Paper Format: This year SC is implementing a workshop proceedings. Papers are encouraged to abide with the SC23 reproducibility initiative and provide an artifact description.

* Authors must use the new ACM proceedings templates
* Regular papers are between 6 to 12 pages, including the references and figures
* For Artifact Description and Evaluation appendices, include them in the regular paper page limits (i.e., up to a total of 12 pages)
*Papers submission and reviews are done through the SC23 linklings website (to be posted)

Best Paper Award: The best paper award will be selected by the technical committee based on impact, relevance and quality of the work.

Important Dates:
* Submission opens: June 1st
* Paper Submission deadline: August 4th
* Author Notification: September 10th
* Camera-Ready Submission: October 13th
* November: SC23 conference and D-HPC half-day workshop (TBD)
