[DMANET] [DEADLINE APPROACHING] The Fifth International Workshop on Systems and Network Telemetry and Analytics (SNTA 2022)

Call for Papers
The Fifth International Workshop on Systems and Network Telemetry and
Analytics (SNTA 2022)
Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA, June 27 - July 1, 2022 (in conjunction with
ACM HPDC 2022 (

The tasks of systems and network telemetry are a key element for
effective operations and management of HPC and distributed computing
systems, by offering comprehensive measurement and analysis capabilities
to provide the visibility into what is occurring at any time. The tasks
will be significantly complicated with the greater complexity of
computing systems, increasing network speed, and the newly introduced
mobile and IoT devices. Such changes will render the existing telemetry
and analysis techniques to be outdated, and more scalable techniques may
be in place for data-driven and deeper data analysis. In addition to the
quantitative and qualitative challenges, data pressure in systems and
networks also comes from various sources such as sensors, computing
systems, networking and security devices, and other \emerging computing
elements speaking with different syntax and semantics, which makes
organizing and incorporating the generated data difficult for extensive

This workshop aims at bridging the systems and network measurement and
the latest advances in machine learning and data science technologies,
to advance the performance and reliability of HPC and distributed
systems. New analysis techniques are needed in the modern world, from
the diverse angles of systems/network performance, availability, and
security. For example, real-time streaming analytics algorithms and
methods need to be explored for estimating network performance and
summarizing the traffic variables to capture the network activities due
to the network bandwidth increase. Multivariate analysis of telemetric
variables may be able to provide the intuitive, comprehensive view of
the systems and networks dynamics. New logging techniques are also
needed in the future with the latest development in the storage and
archival technologies. In addition, many applications in this area may
need to address the application-specific requirements and challenges.
This workshop intends to share visions of investigating new approaches
and methods at the intersection of data sciences and HPC/distributed
computing systems.

Topic of interest (but not limited to):
Systems and network measurement, analysis, and summarization
