Call for Papers

The 3rd workshop on Resource AWareness of Systems and Society (RAW 2024) is going to be held this year in the beautiful city of Maribor, Slovenia, and aims at bringing together educators, researchers, and engineers from academia and industry to discuss solutions and open problems in the area of resource-aware computing. To this end, RAW 2024 aims at forming a community around resource-aware computing, both for classical resource trade-offs, such as energy vs. performance, but also incorporating novel concepts, such as development time and effort, resilience, or sustainability over product or process life cycles.

The RAW 2024 workshop aims to establish a discussion forum, grounded in the formal submission, review, and publication of workshop papers, discussing early scientific findings and their application in the area of resource-aware computing. We are looking for papers and presentations about resource measurement, monitoring, controlling, and the multi-objective trade-offs that are applicable in the different domains and sectors. We look for experience reports, industrial case studies as well as early and preliminary research results that may later appear as full papers at focused or multidisciplinary conferences or in journals.

Presentations should refer to techniques involved in resource measurement, monitoring, controlling, and trade-offs including the full scope of techniques from background theory to the application of innovative solutions in different domains. Finally, we welcome all aspects of the mentioned techniques such as education, training, research innovation, and practice.

We aim to establish and improve interaction and cooperation between scientists, researchers, educators, innovators, and practitioners from all related sectors and domains that are concerned about the need for more aware resource utilization in systems and society in general.

The topics covered by the RAW 2024 Workshop include (but are not limited to):

  • resource utilization, e.g., measurement, estimation, optimization
  • resource-aware systems design and implementation, e.g., resource-constrained systems, frugal computing, high-performance computing
  • tools supporting resource-aware designs and development, e.g., programming languages, virtual machines, code analyzers, development environments
  • resource awareness of technologies, tools, and techniques used in system development
  • resource-aware economy, e.g., aligning incentives for resource awareness, evaluation of resource allocation within facilities, organizations, or countries, or cost-benefit trade-offs
  • economy and management in resource awareness, e.g., background techniques such as mathematics, statistics, or management; application of background techniques for resource-aware computing; application of the above to other sectors and domains
  • education and training in all the above topics of interest

Submission guidelines

RAW 2024 Workshop has two categories of papers:

  • short papers (5-10 pages) for preliminary research results and discussion of new ideas
  • full papers (10-12 pages) for new mature results and contributions.

Selected and presented short and full papers will be published in CEUR-WS proceedings.

Consequently, authors of short and full papers are expected to submit their papers using the 2-column CEUR-WS style. Page numbers (and, if possible, line numbers) should appear on the submitted manuscript to help the reviewers write their report.

Papers should be submitted via EasyChair. Authors should submit an electronic copy of the paper (written in English) in PDF, formatted according to the corresponding style. Each submission must include on its first page the paper title; authors and their affiliations; contact author’s email; abstract; and three to four keywords which will be used to assist the PC in selecting appropriate reviewers for the full and short papers.

Review and Selection Criteria

Reviews will be single-blind (anonymous reviewers) and each paper will be reviewed by 3 reviewers. The acceptance decision will be based on consensus among all members of the Program Committee. Submissions to the RAW 2024 Workshop will be evaluated according to the following criteria:

  • Fitness to topics of interest
  • Relevance of the contribution
  • Novelty of the research
  • Clarity of the paper
  • Quality of writing

The RAW 2024 Workshop is intended to be a place for the exchange of, both, fresh and mature ideas related to a wide range of aspects of Resource Awareness, therefore, we are open to inviting the complete research reports along with early and initial results.

Upon the acceptance of the paper by the Program Committee, the authors are expected to produce a camera-ready version, by incorporating the suggestions of the Program Committee and providing an enclosed revision report. The camera-ready paper must be accompanied by a signed author agreement and copyright transfer form defined by CEUR-WS guidelines.

We require that at least one author of each accepted paper register for the RAW 2024 workshop and will be present at the workshop to present the paper.
