SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES
Many algorithms have been proposed and appear in the state of the art of many application domains such as image processing, cryptography, pattern recognition, signal processing, document analysis, etc… In order to quantify the performance and the benefits of a new algorithm, it is necessary in general to test it on a large benchmark. In most cases, the size of existing benchmarks is really important. As an example, in the filed of biometrics, the performance of a matching algorithm is estimated through one million of comparisons on a benchmark dataset containing biometric samples of a large number of individuals. It becomes difficult to achieve this testing in a research lab or in an engineering department due to computational constraints and lack of adequate resources. One solution is to use high performance computing systems such as those employed in grid computing. Most recently, cloud computing has been getting popular. This special session focuses on research works aimed at defining high performance computing systems and cloud computing for benchmarking. Furthermore, contributions concerning the definition of new open platforms, studies on the distribution of computation tasks and applications in different fields in computer science or from other domains are sought.
The topics of the session include (but are not limited to) the following:
Open Platforms for Distributed Benchmarking
Benchmarking on the Cloud
Benchmarking Web Services
Virtualization for Distributed Benchmarking
Data Distribution for Benchmarking
Performance of Benchmarking Applications on Clouds (Ex: NAS parallel benchmarks)
Scalability of Parallel Applications on Public or Private Clouds
Benchmarking Scientific Parallel Applications
Performance Measurements, Monitoring, Modeling and Simulation
Distributed Troubleshooting and Best Practices
Applications (not limited to): image processing, pattern recognition, cryptography, biometrics, etc.
Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and authors email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords from the above list of topics and an abstract of no more than 450 words. The full manuscript should be at most 7 pages using the two-column IEEE format. Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Please include page numbers on all preliminary submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments. Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript via email to the special session organizers at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
Only PDF files will be accepted. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, technical clarity and presentation. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be registered and presented at the special session. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings which will be made available at the time of the meeting.
If you have any questions about paper submission or the special session, please contact the organizers.
