2nd Workshop on High Performance Computing in Astronomy

(AstroHPC 2013)

 


In conjunction with the 22nd International ACM Symposium on High-Performance Parallel and Distributed Computing (HPDC 2013)
June 18, 2013
New York, USA

 

 

Notification

Due to lack of submissions, AstroHPC will not be held in 2013. We would like to thank our PC members for their commitment and help with the advertisement of the workshop.
We encourage the potential authors that were counting on submitting in the very last moment to contact us directly - we will do our best to review their contributions and further discuss with the other workshop organizers to host a mini-session on astronomy applications, if needed. We apologize for any inconvenience. We hope for a more successful edition in 2014.

Mission

In the past years, astronomy has become one of the biggest consumers of computing resources. Therefore, new computational solutions (both hardware and software) are emerging, dedicated to the various fields of the science. For example, in radioastronomy, instruments are becoming extremely large, much like LOFAR in Europe, meerKAT in Africa, and ASKAP in Australia. Comprising of hundreds to thousands of antennas, these radio telescopes generate huge amounts of data that have to be analyzed in a timely manner. As a result, large scale systems (both distributed and centralized) are employed for data gathering, filtering, analysis, and imaging. Furthermore, the Square Kilometer Array (SKA), a very large scale international project, aims to build the largest ever radiotelescope which, with a lifespan of 50+ years, will push the limits of radioastronomy data processing.

Thus, it is expected that astronomy experiments will become larger in all dimensions: larger data collections, more accurate data analysis and processing, and more detailed results (i.e., imaging). This significant increase of the large-size experiments to be performed by the instruments built around the world require not only huge processing power, but also clever system design, all the way from the hardware construction to the software development and deployment.

In this context, this first edition of the Astro-HPC workshop focuses on system design for large-scale astronomy systems. We aim to give specialists from both astronomy and computer science and engineering the opportunity to discuss both the requirements of large-scale high-performance computing systems suitable and/or usable for various astronomy applications, and practical examples of such designs and implementations. Therefore, we encourage both contributions that analyze the size and needs of large-scale astronomy systems to be used in the near future, as well as contributions that show how existing algorithms and methods should be adapted or replaced to the larger scale of these near future experiments.

The workshop will be co-located with ACM/IEEE HPDC (http://www.hpdc.org/2013/) and will take place in June 2013 in New York, USA. Astro-HPC 2013 will bring together researchers and practitioners in discussing and creating new knowledge about the astronomy infrastructure and (computational) methods of the future.

Topics of interest

The First Workshop on High Performance Computing in Astronomy (Astro-HPC 2013) solicits papers that describe, analyze, evaluate, and/or build large-scale astronomy systems.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Systems
    • Specific design requirements and solutions
    • Benchmarking and performance evaluation
    • Performance analysis and limitations of new system configurations
    • Energy efficiency: predictions, measurements, analysis.
  • Accelerators
    • Evaluation of accelerator-based systems in the field of astronomy
    • The requirements for accelerators in astronomy applications
    • The impact of various accelerator on the performance and/or energy of HPC systems for astronomy
  • Applications
    • Novel large-scale astronomy applications
    • Evaluation and benchmarking of applications in large-scale environments
    • Updates, tuning, and optimizations of existing astronomy applications
  • Algorithms
    • Performance evaluation and analysis of traditional algorithms
    • Novel algorithms for astronomy kernels

Submission guidelines

AstroHPC 2013 invites authors to submit original and unpublished work. Submitted papers should be limited to 8 pages (including tables, images, and references) and formatted according to the ACM SIG Style. Please use the Easychair submission site to submit your paper. Only pdf format is accepted. All papers will receive at least three reviews. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register for the workshop and present the paper.


Proceedings

Accepted workshop papers will appear in the HPDC conference proceedings and will be incorporated in the ACM Digital Library.


Program

The program will be announced shortly after the camera ready versions of the papers are received (20th of April, 2013). We plan for a full-day event with 2 keynote speakers, 6-8 scientific paper presentations, and a Panel session.


Venue and registration

The workshop will be held in conjunction with the 22nd International ACM Symposium on High-Performance Parallel and Distributed Computing (HPDC 2013) on June 18, 2013 in New York, USA. For the registration procedure follow the HPDC link.
