Exascale Evaluation and Research Techniques Workshop (EXERT) is a forum to stimulate further cutting-edge research in quantitative design, evaluation, and research methods for large-scale systems and enable an exchange of tools, methods, data, and experience gained in real facilities. In addition to accelerating the development of the aforementioned measurement methods, this workshop also:
1) Raises the awareness of the need to improve quantitative methods for data center design
2) Provides a gathering place for the systems designers that are already working in this area
3) Provides a faster means of dissemination for state-of-the-art research
4) Provides a forum to publicize tools, data sets, and experience in evaluating large-scale systems.
NOTE: Paper submission date has been extended to Thursday, January 5th, 2012
