[DMANET] [DEADLINE APPROACHING] ACM SNTA’23 - The Sixth Workshop on Systems and Network Telemetry and Analytics


Call for Papers

The Sixth Workshop on Systems and Network Telemetry and Analytics (ACM
in conjunction with ACM HPDC 2023 (http://www.hpdc.org/2023/)
Orlando, Florida, United States, June 16 - 23, 2023


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and analysis techniques outdated, and more scalable techniques may be in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 artificial intelligence 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 an intuitive,
comprehensive view of the systems and network 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
- Data-driven, multivariate, streaming-based data processing
- Distributed and federated machine learning
- Cybersecurity, forensics, privacy, and anonymization
- Smart instruments, edge/fog-systems, and IoTs
- Wireless, sensor, 5G/6G networks measurement and analysis
- Software/knowledge-defined-* technologies
- Advances in network and storage technologies
- Intelligent workflow, visualization, and applications
- Performance modeling, analysis, and engineering
- Design and evaluation of HPC and distributed systems
- Best practices and implementations tied to systems/network data analysis

Important dates:
