SC14 paper tapped as Best Student Paper Finalist
A FTG paper on analytical modeling of application resiliency was selected as a Best Student Paper Finalist at SC14 http://sc14.supercomputing.org/schedule/event_detail?evid=pap192. The paper, entitled "Quantitately Modeling Application Resilency with the Data Vulnerability Factor," introduces a pragmatic, data-driven methodology to analyze application vulnerability based on a novel resilience metric: the data vulnerability factor (DVF). DVF integrates both application and hardware specific information into its resilience analysis. To calculate DVF, we extend the Aspen performance modeling language to provide this fast modeling solution. See the paper at ACM: http://delivery.acm.org/10.1145/2690000/2683670/p695-yu.pdf.
