Workshop on
High Performance Platform Management

HPPM 2010 takes place as part of the International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2010) , in conjunction with The 6th International Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing Conference (IWCMC 2010)
June 28 - July 2, 2010
Caen, Normandy, France

Call for Papers

Recent years have seen a powerful increase in large-scale, high-performance distributed infrastructures that reach across organisational and national borders. The strong trends to data centre re-centralisation, catalysed by the advent of virtualised 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.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Management in Grids
  • Virtual Organizations
  • Management and Operation of Clouds and XaaS
  • Novel Applications in the Cloud
  • Management of Clusters
  • Management Extensions to Middleware
  • Scheduling and Resource Management
Virtualized Environments
  • Host Virtualization Management
  • Networks Virtualization Management
  • Storage Virtualization Management
  • I/O Systems Virtualization
  • IT Service Management
