Call for Papers - DreamCloud Workshop 2014

International Workshop on
Dynamic Resource Allocation and Management in
Embedded, High Performance and Cloud Computing

May 28 2014 - Montpellier, France


DreamCloud is the first workshop aiming to encourage technical and scientific exchanges between senior academics, young researchers and industrialists in the area of dynamic resource management in embedded, high performance and cloud computing. It aims to foster cooperation across the different domains by emphasising the latest trends bringing together the respective research communities:

  • embedded systems are increasingly complex, having to cope with dynamic workloads, and using multiprocessor and communication-centric platforms, while fulfiling strict timing and energy requirements;
  • high-performance and cloud computing critically need to address fundamental problems in energy efficiency and performance predictability, despite having little or no a priori knowledge about their workloads.

DreamCloud Workshop will be held in Montpellier, France, and will be co-located with ReCoSoC 2014, a cross-disciplinary symposium bringing together the research communities working on multiprocessor, communication-centric and reconfigurable embedded systems.

Topics of interest:

  • dynamic resource allocation and management algorithms and heuristics for time-predictable and performance-predictable systems
  • dynamic resource allocation and management algorithms and heuristics targeting energy-efficiency
  • operating system and virtualisation technologies implementing dynamic resource allocation and management (task allocation, task migration, context management)
  • dynamic resource allocation of on-chip and off-chip interconnects (routing, buffer allocation)
  • dynamic management of memory hierarchies and storage (time-predictable memory controllers, scratchpads, file systems)
  • dynamic hardware reconfiguration to support dynamic resource management (hardware-assisted dynamic scheduling and allocation)
  • specification languages and environments (workload characterisation)
  • system monitoring (workload monitoring, platform monitoring, energy monitoring)
  • verification and evaluation techniques (simulation, analytical models)
  • benchmarks for dynamic resource allocation in embedded, high performance and cloud computing

The workshop is part of the EU-funded DreamCloud project, which has started in September 2013 and is addressing some of the topics listed above. The overall goal of the workshop, however, is to assess the most relevant research contributions and industrial needs in this area, therefore contributions from outside of the consortium are extremely welcome and will be given preference in the final programme.

All accepted papers will be published in IEEE Xplore, in a special chapter of the proceedings of ReCoSoC 2014.

Important dates:

Paper submission deadline: March 30, 2014  April 13, 2014

Notification of acceptance: April 19, 2014 April 28, 2014

Final version deadline: May 4, 2014 May 12, 2014

Workshop: May 28, 2014


Authors are invited to submit contributions as maximum 8 page papers in IEEE format. Contribution(s) have to be submitted electronically through EasyChair (as a special track of ReCoSoC 2014): https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=recosoc2014
