Call For Papers

Concurrent systems, based on (distributed) multi/many-core processing units, are
the nowadays reference computing architecture. The (continuously-growing) level
of hardware parallelism they offer has led these platforms to play a central
role at any scale, ranging from data centres to personal (mobile) devices.
Optimising performance and ensuring energy efficiency when running complex
software stacks on top of these systems are incredibly challenging due to several
aspects like data dependencies or resource sharing (and interference) among
application threads, as well as VMs. Furthermore, hardware accelerators like
GPGPUs or FPGAs introduce a level of heterogeneity that can potentially offer
further opportunities for combined gain in performance and energy efficiency, if
correctly exploited.

The goal of this workshop is to establish a venue for both academia and industry
experts and practitioners, where they can discuss challenges, perspectives and
opportunities are given by researching on scalable, energy-efficient and secure
software deployed on top of modern (heterogeneous) concurrent platforms.

High-quality research papers are solicited in all aspects of performance
assessment, modelling, optimisation, and energy efficiency in concurrent systems,
including (but not limited to) the following ones:

- Parallel and concurrent programming frameworks
- Heterogeneous computing
- Parallel/Distributed simulation systems
- Runtime environments for HPC or daily usage software
- Shared and concurrent data structures
- Data management and services
- Non-blocking synchronisation
- Operating Systems
- Virtualization support
- Networking functions
- Security

We welcome:

- full-length submissions of up to 8 pages, including references
- work-in-progress papers of up to 4 pages, including references

*** Submission ***

All submissions will be reviewed using a double-blind review process, i.e., the
identity of authors and referees will not be revealed to each other. To ensure
blind reviewing, authors’ names and affiliations should not appear in the paper,
and bibliographic references should be suitably modified.

Papers must be prepared by using an official ACM Master Article Template
( Template files for
Microsoft Word and LaTeX2e are provided on their website. Please make sure that
your paper strictly adheres to the ACM Master Article Template formatting style
by using one of the provided template files.

Papers must be written in English. Submissions should use ACM conference
proceedings format (double column, single space). The page limit is 8 pages,
including references (up to 4 pages including references for short papers).
Reviews are double-blind; thus, all identifying information must be removed from
the manuscript: this includes removing authors’ names and affiliations,
acknowledgements, funding information, and all references to the authors’ work
that would disclose their identity. This information can be later added to
accepted manuscripts.

Papers must be unpublished and must not be submitted for publication elsewhere.
The following information must accompany each submission:

- a short abstract,
- a complete list of authors and their affiliations,
- a contact person for correspondence, and
- postal and email addresses.

Papers must be submitted using the EasyChair submission system:

All accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library.
