Abstractions for Distributed Systems, EuroPar 2008

Affiliated with the eSI Theme on Distributed Programming Abstractions

The computing infrastructure of tomorrow will be very different from that of yesterday. In this rapidly evolving landscape, the development of applications that can remain neutral to underlying infrastrutural changes remains a challenge. The goal of the workshop on Abstractions for Distributed System is to try to address how utilizing Distributed systems can be made easier via the use of abstractions -- support for commonly occurring patterns, which could be either programming patterns, application usage patterns or infrastructure usage patterns.

This workshop will be intellectually linked to the e-Science Institute sponsored theme on Distributed Programming Abstractions.

Specifically, an important choice in opting for Europar 2008 is the hope that this will provide an opportunity for exchange of ideas, synergy and potential collaboration between researchers in CoreGrid and those involved with the eSI theme on Distributed Programming Abstractions.

This workshop aims to determine where programming abstractions are important and where non-programmatic abstractions are likely to make greater impact in enabling applications to effectively utilise distributed infrastructure. This workshop will have a balance of applications and topical infrastructure developments (such as abstractions for Clouds).

This workshop will be of interest to, but not limited to, Application scientists using High-performance distributed systems, Systems Developers and Grid and Distributed Infrastructure deployers.

We invite full length (8-12 pages) for this workshop. Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Abstractions for Distributed Applications
  • Abstractions for Usage Models on Distributed Systems
  • Programming Models and Patterns
  • Examples of Applications Using Distributed Systems

Accepted papers will be published as part of the "Euro-Par2008 Workshops" proceedings to be published by Springer in early 2009.

Important Dates:

  • Paper submission deadline: 02 June, 2008
  • Workshop: 25 August, 2008
  • Camera Ready Paper: 03 November, 2008
  • Publication: February/March 2009
