International Workshop on High Performance Platform Management

(HPPM 2012)


As part of

The International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2012) or

Recent years have seen a powerful increase in large-scale, high-performance distributed infrastructures that reach across organizational and national borders. The strong trends to data centre re-centralization, catalyzed by the advent of virtualized infrastructures, compound the range of high-performance platforms and have spawned new commercial computing options, e.g., Cloud Computing. While creating new opportunities for applications, this proliferation also presents challenges to the operation of management of the resulting high-performance IT platforms.

HPPM aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from the domains of distributed large-scale computing applications, operations and management. The workshop will include presentations of contributed high-quality papers in these areas.

The Workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the following:


    • Management in Grids

    • Management of Supercomputing installations

    • Virtual Organizations

    • Management and Operation of Clouds and IaaX

    • Novel Applications in the Cloud

    • Management of Clusters

    • Management Extensions to Middleware

    • Scheduling and Resource Management

HPPM 2012 welcomes submission of full papers (7 pages) as well as short papers (4 pages) on work in progress. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and authors email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords from the above list of topics and an abstract of no more than 400 words. The full manuscript should be at most 7 pages using the two-column IEEE format. Additional pages will be charged at additional fee. Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster papers and posters (please refer to for the submission details) will also be accepted for submission. Please include page numbers on all submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments.

Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript to the Workshop paper submission site at ….

Only PDF files will be accepted. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, technical clarity and presentation. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be registered and presented at the workshop. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings which will be available at the time of the meeting.

Submission of a paper implies that should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register for the HPCS conference and present the paper in the workshop. Accepted papers will be given guidelines in preparing and submitting the final manuscript(s) together with the notification of acceptance.

All accepted papers will be published as ISBN proceedings by the IEEE and will be available online through IEEE Digital Library (EI indexing).
