International Conference on
Multicore Software Engineering, Performance, and Tools (MSEPT'12)
May 31-June 1, 2012
co-located with TOOLS'12 conferences
Prague, Czech Republic


- Submission deadline: February 1, 2012
- Conference: May 31-June 1, 2012


Multicore processors are ubiquitous and every new computer is a truly
parallel machine. This is a fundamental change in the history of computing:
parallelism becomes available for everyone at low cost. In addition to
scientific applications, everyday applications need to be parallel in order
to exploit the full hardware potential. Compared to sequential applications,
our repertoire of tools and methods for cost-effectively developing reliable
and robust parallel applications is spotty. The purpose of this conference
is to bring together researchers and practitioners with diverse backgrounds
in order to advance the state of the art in software engineering,
performance engineering, and tools in all areas of multicore systems.


This conference aims to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to
tackle the multicore software challenge. We address a broad spectrum of
topics from small-scale systems to large-scale parallel systems, from
writing new applications to reengineering legacy applications. We also aim
to stimulate discussions between academia and industry to get a better
understanding of the software engineering problems and how they can be
solved. We welcome contributions making connections between software
engineering and other fields, which show how improvements in those fields
lead to improvements in software engineering. The conference also addresses
software engineering researchers who have not worked in multicore before -
but who have the knowledge and expertise to address software engineering
challenges posed by multicore. We solicit original, previously unpublished

Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Frameworks and libraries for multicore software
- GPUs: programming and tools, OpenCL, CUDA, compilers, run-time systems
- Parallel patterns
- Parallel software architectures
- Modeling techniques for multicore software
- Software components and composition
- Programming models for multicore
- Testing and debugging of parallel applications
- Verification techniques for multicore software
- Software reengineering for parallelism
- Performance tuning and auto-tuning
- Development environments and tools for multicore software
- Tools and techniques for homogeneous/heterogeneous multicore systems
- Compiler techniques and auto-parallelization on multicore
- Process models for multicore software development
- Parallelism in multicore clusters and distributed systems using multicore
- Energy issues in multicore programming
- Data management on multicore
- Software issues at the interface with multicore hardware and operating
- Multicore software issues in scientific computing
- Multicore software on mobile and embedded devices
- Experience reports

In addition to full papers, we accept short papers with position statements
(4 pages) on any of the above topics.



All accepted papers will be published by Springer LNCS.
