CCR Researcher Kurt Ferreira Co-Authors Best Paper at APDCM Workshop

CCR Researcher Kurt Ferreira and his co-authors have been awarded Best Paper at the upcoming Workshop on Advances in Parallel and Distributed Computational Models (APDCM) at the International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium. Their paper entitled "Optimal Cooperative Checkpointing for Shared High-Performance Computing Platforms" proposes a cooperative checkpoint scheduling policy that combines optimal checkpointing periods with I/O scheduling in an effort to ensure minimal overheads in the presence of bursty, competing I/O. This work provides crucial analysis and direct guidance on maximizing throughput on current and future extreme-scale platforms. This year marks the 20th APDCM Workshop, which intends “to provide a timely forum for the exchange and dissemination of new ideas, techniques and research in the field of the parallel and distributed computational models.”
