Bibliographical note

Funding Information:
Conferences like HPDC require a large commitment by the community. First, I would like to acknowledge and thank our sponsors ACM SIGARCH and the University of Arizona, and supporters, IBM, DOE, and the NSF. Next, I would like to thank the various organizing committees that ensure that HPDC remains a top-tier conference at the intersection of high performance and distributed computing. My deepest thanks go to Evgenia Smirni and Ali Butt for their leadership as co-chairs of the Program Committee helping to bring a strong and exciting technical program which is a cornerstone of HPDC. I would also like to acknowledge the HPDC Awards Committee led by Douglas Thain in their selection of Geoffrey Fox for the 2019 HPDC Achievement Award. Additional thanks go to Alex Iosup for chairing the Workshop committee which has had a long tradition at HPDC bringing cutting-edge topics that complement the main program. Thanks also to Jay F Lofstead II for leading the effort as Poster Chair. I would also like to acknowledge Antonino Tumeo for his work as our Publications Chair, an often-thankless job. Conferences cannot succeed without the tireless work of publicity and I would like to thank Ioan Raicu, Torsten Hoefler, Shuaiwen Leon Song, Kenjiro Taura, for spreading the word. Lastly, I express gratitude to Zachary Leidall, our Web chair, for keeping the HPDC 2019 Web site informative and up to date.
