Call For Papers

PLEASE NOTE: the Deadline for Poster and Short Talks Submissions has been extended by a week.
The review process of full papers is in progress and notification of authors will be in time.

The trend for increased compute capability and more diverse hardware with its evermore-complex topologies continues: In recent systems parallelism spreads over several levels of the system and heterogeneity is growing on the node as well as on the chip level. Data is kept across a nested hierarchy of memory stages and data locality becomes even more important. Most applications and algorithms are not yet ready to utilize available capabilities and a tremendous effort is required to close the gap. Different technologies and processing models, non-adjusted interfaces, and incomplete tool chains complicate holistic programming approaches and impede programmer’s productivity. On the other hand, resource contention, data conflicts and hardware bottlenecks keep performance away from theoretical peak. At the current state of the art in technologies and methodologies an interdisciplinary approach is required to tackle the obstacles in manycore computing. Compute- and memory-intensive applications can only benefit from the full hardware potential if all features on all system levels are taken into account in a holistic approach.
This conference is the 3rd in a series, starting in 2010 in Heidelberg at the Heidelberg Academy of Sciences (HAW) and 2011 in Karlsruhe at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and the Engineering Mathematics and Computing Lab. Contributions are welcome from all participating disciplines. Particular emphasis is placed on the support and advancement of young scientists.

Submission topics for the conference include (but are not limited to):
• Emerging hardware architectures (manycore CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs,, ...)
• Aspects of microprocessor technologies and prospect of manycore technologies
• Parallel programming models and languages (MPI, OpenMP, CUDA, OpenCL, PGAS, ...)
• Hardware-aware computing and architecture-aware approaches for parallel numerical simulations, implementation and algorithm design
• Heterogeneous computing, adaptive and reconfigurable computing
• Mathematical modeling, design of parallel algorithms and scalability issues
• Parallelization strategies in hybrid and hierarchical setups
• Autotuning strategies; portability and flexibility of software solutions
• Library and tool support for parallel applications
• Performance analysis and modeling
• Novel programming tools for parallel programming
• Compiler techniques and code optimization strategies for parallel systems
• Virtualization strategies and hardware transparency
• Memory behavior analysis, parallel data access and data structures
• Efficient parallel numerical methods
• Parallel applications (e.g. numerical simulation, image processing)
• Parallelism for non-numerical and non-HPC applications
• Practice and experience of multicore programming
• Benchmarking results of scientific applications
• Interdisciplinary approaches and theoretical concepts

Submission Guidelines:
You are invited to submit papers in Springer LNCS style of up to 12 pages describing recent work related to the conference theme. Submission must be in PDF format. Please follow the submission instructions. The submission should include the contact person's email address. The program committee will review each paper. All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings. At least one of the author(s) of an accepted paper is expected to register for the conference and present the paper. In case of any questions please contact the conference organizers.

Short Talks:
Graduate students and Ph.D. students are encouraged to give a short talk on their current research project. Please submit a one-page abstract of your work.

If you would like to present a poster of your research work please submit your abstract, description or draft as PDF. Accepted Posters are expected to submit a two- page description for the proceedings.

Please note: Thanks to the generous contribution of the German Gauss-Alliance, the conference may offer a bester-paper, best-poster and best-talk award!
