ISC Announces 2017 Research Paper Session

April 5, 2017

FRANKFURT, Germany, April 5, 2017 — The organizers of the ISC High Performance conference are pleased to announce the 22 research papers that have been accepted for presentation at the ISC 2017 Research Paper Session. The session will run over three days, starting Monday, June 19.

All submissions were double-blind peer reviewed based on their novelty, fundamental insights and potential for long-term contribution. The process was headed by program chair, Dr. Pavan Balaji of Argonne National Laboratory, and deputy chair, Prof. Dr. David Keyes from KAUST.

Here are the selected papers. The first two on the list have been shortlisted for the Hans Meuer Award.

All accepted research papers will be published in the Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. The papers can be downloaded from Springer’s website for free for a limited period of time after ISC 2017.

The Hans Meuer Award 

The research papers selected as finalists for the Hans Meuer Award this year focus on communication characteristics, and improving communication protocols of message passing interface (MPI) respectively.

MPI has over time evolved as the de-facto HPC standard for node-to-node communication, and it is well-suited to serve as proxy for an analysis of communication characteristics of exascale proxy applications. In their paper titled “An Overview of MPI Characteristics of Exascale Proxy Applications,” authors Benjamin Klenk and Prof. Holger Froening of Ruprecht-Karls University Heidelberg discuss a number of these characteristics, like time spent in certain operations, point-to-point versus collective communication, message sizes and rates, and how applications use MPI to exploit node-level parallelism.

Dr. Hari Subromoni, Sourav Chakraborty and Prof. Dhabaleswar Panda, from The Ohio State University, authored “Designing Dynamic and Adaptive MPI Point-to-Point Communication Protocols for Efficient Overlap of Computation and Communication,” in which they propose an adaptive protocol design that dynamically optimizes the communication behavior of the application at runtime.

Both teams will present their papers at the research paper award session on Monday, June 19 to the general audience and a small committee that will decide the winning paper. The winner will be announced and awarded the following day in conjunction with the Tuesday keynote.

The Hans Meuer Award has been introduced in memory of the late Dr. Hans Meuer, general chair of the ISC conference from 1986 through 2014, and co-founder of the TOP500 project.

The Gauss Award winner will also hold their presentation on Monday, at the research paper award session.

Register Early and Save

Those attending the conference should register before May 10 to reap the benefits of the early-bird registration fees, which is more than 45 percent lower than the onsite fees.
