|Annual IEEE Workshop on Fault-Tolerant Parallel and Distributed Systems||Call for Paper|
Increasingly large parallel computing systems provide unique challenges to the researchers in dependable computing, especially because of the high failure rates intrinsic to these systems. While commercial and scientific companies share the need for massive throughput and low latency, dependability of service is also a concern. In addition to providing uninterrupted service, commercial systems must be free from data corruption. Achieving dependability in highly scalable parallel and distributed systems poses a considerable challenge. As the number of components increases, so does the probability of a component failure. Therefore, improved fault-tolerant technology is required for high scalable parallel and distributed systems. The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to discuss issues related to these issues of fault-tolerant parallel and distributed systems. All aspects of design, theory and realization of parallel and distributed systems are of interest.
