SeqCodePar 2014 : IJPP Special Issue on Sequential Code Parallelization
Call For Papers
Parallelization is now the standard way of computing. To bridge the gap between parallel hardware resources and the performance/cost, programmers must reform applications with the target parallel architecture knowledge. It means writing parallel programs is much more difficult and unnatural than writing sequential codes. However, the traditional automatic instruction-level parallelism will not make full use of the state-of-the-art hardware architectures, especially for cutting-edge applications and future trends in parallel computing for various platforms. This special issue addresses all aspects of Sequential Code Parallelization. Authors are invited to submit original papers, and the main scopes of interest are (but not limited to):
* Automatic extraction of parallelism
* Dataflow execution model and phase analysis methodologies
* Instruction-level parallelism, task-level parallelism, thread-level parallelism, or hybrid levels of parallelism.
* Software transactional memory
* Speculative Parallelization, Software Pipelines, high level Superscalar techniques.
* Parallel programming models for homogenous and heterogeneous Multicore/Manycore platforms (e.g.OpenCL, MapReduce, OpenMP…)
* Hardware/software codesign in parallelization
* Out-of-order execution schemes
* Parallelization for emerging big data applications (e.g. big data, bioinformatics, deep learning, data mining)
* Debugging, Verification and Performance Tuning for parallelization execution.
Submitted papers should not have been previously published nor be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. Conference papers may only be submitted if the paper was completely re-written or substantially extended (30%). The papers should be submitted via the Manuscript Central website and should adhere to standard formatting requirements.
Authors should submit their journal version at Manuscript Central adhering to the formatting instructions on the journal Web page and indicate that you are submitting to the Special Issue on Sequential Code Parallelization on the first page and in the field "Author's Cover Letter:" in manuscript central. For additional questions please send an email to the Guest Editors.
