RAW 2023: 2nd workshop on Resource Awareness of Systems and Society

Call For Papers

The 2nd workshop on Resource AWareness of Systems and Society (RAW 2023) is co-located with Euro-par 2023 (https://2023.euro-par.org) 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 2023 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 2023 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 mentioned techniques such as education, training, research innovation, and practice.

We aim at establishing and improving 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 utilisation in systems and society in general.

The topics covered by the RAW 2023 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

Important dates (AOE)

  • Abstract Submission: May 1, 2023 May 19, 2023
  • Paper Submission: May 5, 2023 May 19, 2023
  • Author Notification: July 2, 2023 July 9, 2023
  • Camera-Ready Papers: July 20, 2023

Submission guidelines

RAW 2023 Workshop has two categories of papers:

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

Selected and presented full papers will be provided to EURO-PAR for inclusion in joint LNCS Workshop proceedings while papers shorter than specified by the Call for Workshop (up to 10 pages) will be considered for publication in alternative collections such as CEUR-WS proceedings.

Consequently, authors of full papers are expected to use the Springer LNCS style. Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ instructions on the author’s page, and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX (available also in Overleaf) or for Word, to prepare their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers.

Authors of short papers are expected to conform 2-column CEUR-WS style.

Page numbers (and, if possible, line numbers) should appear on the manuscript to help the reviewers write their report. So, for LaTeX, we recommend that authors use:

Papers should be submitted via EasyChair by choosing the Track: “Workshop: The 2nd International Workshop on Resource Awareness of Systems and Society”. 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 paper.

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 PC members. Submissions to the RAW 2023 Workshop will be evaluated according to the following criteria:

  • fitness to topics of interest
  • the relevance of the contribution
  • the novelty of the research
  • clarity of the paper
  • quality of writing

The RAW 2023 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 Springer/CEUR-WS guidelines.

We require that at least one author of each accepted paper register for the RAW 2023 workshop and will be present at the workshop to present the paper.
