Call For Papers


Eight Workshop on Programmability Issues for Heterogeneous Multicores

Held in conjunction with the 10th International Conference on High-Performance
and Embedded Architectures and Compilers (HiPEAC)
Amsterdam, The Netherlands, January 20, 2015
Workshop website:

Goal of the Workshop

Computer manufacturers have embarked on the many-core roadmap, promising to
add more and more cores/hardware threads on their chips. The ever-increasing
number of cores and heterogeneity in architectures has placed new burdens on
the programming community. Software needs to be parallelized and optimized for
accelerators such as GPUs in order to take advantage of the new breed of
multi-/many-core computers. As a result, progress in how to easily harness the
computing power of multi-core architectures is in great demand.

The eighth edition of the MULTIPROG workshop aims to bring together
researchers interested in programming models, runtimes, and computer
architecture. The workshop's emphasis is on heterogeneous architectures and
covers issues such as:

* How can future parallel programming models improve software productivity?

* How should compilers, runtimes and architectures support programming
models and emerging applications?

* How to design efficient data structures and innovative algorithms?

MULTIPROG is intended for quick publication of early results, work-in-progress,
etc., and is not intended to prevent later publication of extended papers.
Informal proceedings with accepted papers will be made available at the workshop.

Topics of interest
Papers are sought on topics including, but not limited to:
* Multi-core architectures
o Architectural support for compilers/programming models
o Processor (core) architecture and accelerators
o Memory system architecture
o Performance, power, temperature, and reliability issues
* Heterogeneous computing
o Algorithms and data structures for heterogeneous systems
o Applications for heterogeneous computing and real-time graphics
* Programming models for multi-core architectures
o Language extensions
o Run-time systems
o Compiler optimizations and techniques
* Benchmarking of multi-/many-core architectures
o Tools for discovering and understanding parallelism
o Tools for understanding performance and debugging
o Case studies and performance evaluation

Important dates
Final submission: Extended until October 31, 2014 Please, if you intend to submit a paper, try to submit the title and the abstract as early as possible.
Author notification: November 28, 2014
