Call For Papers


Since 2011, the most powerful supercomputers systems ranked in the Top500 list are hybrid systems composed of thousands of nodes that includes CPUs and accelerators, as Xeon Phi and GPUs. Programming and deploying applications on those systems is still a challenging work, due to the complexity of the system and the need to mix several programming interfaces (MPI, CUDA, Intel Xeon Phi) in the same application.

This Workshop is aimed to explore the state of the art of developing applications in accelerated massive HPC architectures, including practical issues of hybrid usage models with MPI, OpenMP, and other accelerators programming models. The idea is to publish novel work on the use of available programming interfaces (MPI, CUDA, Intel Xeon Phi) and tools for code development, application performance optimizations, application deployment on accelerated systems, as well as the advantages and limitations of accelerated HPC systems. Experiences with real-world applications, including scientific computing, numerical simulations, healthcare, energy, data-analysis, etc. are also encouraged.


Areas of interest of the workshop include, but are not limited to:

- Tools, libraries, and environments for accelerators.
- Hybrid and heterogeneous programming with MPI and accelerators.
- Performance evaluation scientific applications based on accelerators.
- Automatic performance tuning of scientific applications with accelerators.
- Integrating accelerators on existing HPC middlewares.
- Run-times for accelerators.
- Energy efficient HPC solutions based on accelerators.
- Storage cache solutions based on SSD accelerators.
- Parallel data analysis for MPI and SSD.
- Real-world scientific and engineering applications using accelerated HPC.
- Future trends and prospects for accelerated HPC.
