ADAPT'15 outcome and new publication model for ADAPT'16

A few words about ADAPT'15 outcome:

* Final program with all PDFs is available online at here.

* The following paper received Nvidia best paper award (Tesla K40):

A Self-adaptive Auto-scaling Method for Scientific Applications on HPC Environments and Clouds
Kiran Mantripragada1, Alecio Binotto1 and Leonardo Tizzei2
1 IBM Research - Brazil
2 IBM Brazil

* We had a very interesting discussion about our new open publication model. In spite of some possible issues, it seems that there is a support to try it for ADAPT'16. Interestingly, we just found out that very similar model is proposed for other scientific fields (see this blog article). Furthermore, we just found the following public discussion on Slashdot about one of ADAPT'15 papers supporting our idea (as a researcher, you normally publish to present your work to a broad community, initiate discussions and get feedback to improve your work, unless it's purely for academic promotion reasons).

Please, follow our announcements about ADAPT'16 (will likely be co-located with HiPEAC'16 in Prague and will likely feature new publication model).
