Final Call for Papers
First International Workshop on
Multi-Objective Many-Core Design (MOMAC)
Luebeck, Germany, February 24-28, 2014

in conjunction with International Conference on
Architecture of Computing Systems (ARCS 2014)


Dear colleagues,

please consider the opportunity to contribute to the First Workshop
on Multi-Objective Many-Core Design (MOMAC) to be held in Luebeck,
Germany in conjunction with ARCS 2014.


Semiconductor industry is hitting the utilization wall, resulting in
parallel and heterogeneous many-core architectures. Applications have
to exploit the available parallelism and heterogeneity to meet their
functional and non-functional requirements and to gain performance
improvements. A main challenge originates from many-cores promoting
highly dynamic usage scenarios as already observable in today’s “smart
devices”, where multiple and varying numbers of applications are
running at different points in time. As a consequence, providing
mapping of applications to processor cores which is optimal and
predictable with respect to performance, timing, energy consumption,
safety, security, etc. may not be guaranteed by static design-time
optimization alone. At the same time, pure run-time optimization may
result in unpredictable and non-optimal system states. This workshop
investigates this field of tension of run-time, design-time, and
hybrid design methodologies for the mapping of applications on
many-core systems, particularly addressing the aspect of multiple
conflicting objectives that drive the design.

This field of research includes numerous intermeshed aspects:
- Languages, Models, and Compilers: How to specify, analyze,
parallelize, and compile programs which support dynamic usage
scenarios in many-cores?
- Formal methods, Test, and Verification: How to analyze and verify
predictable execution of applications despite unforeseeable
run-time events?
- Optimization Techniques: Which design-time and run-time techniques
as well as combinations of them provide optimized and predictable
application mapping for many-cores?
- Architecture: Which architectural concepts are required to support
predictability, run-time management and (self-)optimization?


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Multiple Objectives & Predictability
* Performance
* Hard & Soft Real-time
* Energy Efficiency
* Fault Tolerance & Reliability
* Safety
* Security
* Scalability
* Flexibility

* Programming
* Modelling
* Parallelization

* Architectural Predictability
* Reconfiguration
* Power Management
* Benchmarking
* Monitoring

Design-time Optimization
* Multi-Objective Optimization
* Design Space Exploration
* Verification
* Profiling

Run-time Optimization
* Resource Management
* Temperature and Power Management
* Decentralized vs Centralized Management
* Reconfigurable Computing
* Operating System
* Online Verification
* Auto-tuning
* Machine Learning


Paper can be submitted as regular papers or as position papers.
Formats requirements:

- up to 8 pages (regular paper) IEEE style
- 2 pages (position paper) IEEE style: Preliminary and exploratory
work are welcome in this category, including wild & crazy ideas.
Authors submitting papers in this category must prepend
"Position Paper:" to the title of the submitted paper.

Papers are required to be in English using the IEEE style in A4 paper
size. (Note: The previously announced 12-page LNI style is acceptable
for submission, but needs to be changed for the final manuscript.)

Full Paper submission until November 29, 2013 via EasyChair.
(2-page position papers: title and short abstract until November 29;
full manuscript until December 6, 2013.)
All papers undergo a blind review process. Authors will be notified
until December 16, 2013. Final version is due to January 5, 2014.
All accepted papers will be published in the ARCS Workshop Proceedings
and online under IEEE Xplore.
