=============== HeteroPar 2015 ==================
The 13th International Workshop on Algorithms, Models, and Tools for
Parallel Computing on Heterogeneous Platforms

August 24-25, 2015
Vienna, Austria

Heterogeneity is emerging as one of the most profound and challenging
characteristics of today's parallel environments. From the macro
level, where networks of distributed computers, composed by diverse
node architectures, are interconnected with potentially heterogeneous
networks, to the micro level, where deeper memory hierarchies and
various accelerator architectures are increasingly common, the impact
of heterogeneity on all computing tasks is increasing
rapidly. Traditional parallel algorithms, programming environments and
tools, designed for legacy homogeneous multiprocessors, will at best
achieve a small fraction of the efficiency and the potential
performance that we should expect from parallel computing in tomorrow's
highly diversified and mixed environments. New ideas, innovative
algorithms, and specialized programming environments and tools are
needed to efficiently use these new and multifarious parallel

The workshop is intended to be a forum for researchers
working on algorithms, programming languages, tools, and theoretical
models aimed at efficiently solving problems on heterogeneous

IMPORTANT DATES (Anywhere on Earth)
Papers due - May 14, 2015
Author notification - June 15, 2015
Camera-ready deadline for conference - July 25, 2015
Camera-ready deadline for LNCS proceedings - September 25, 2015


The topics to be covered include but are not limited to:
- Heterogeneous parallel programming paradigms and models;
- Languages, libraries, and interfaces for different heterogeneous
parallel programming models;
- Performance models and their integration into the design of
efficient parallel algorithms for heterogeneous platforms;
- Parallel algorithms for heterogeneous and/or hierarchical
systems, including manycores and hardware accelerators (FPGAs,
GPUs, etc.);
- Algorithms for efficient problem solving on
heterogeneous platforms (numerical linear algebra, nonlinear
systems, fast transforms, computational biology, data mining,
multimedia, etc.);
- Software engineering for heterogeneous parallel systems;
- Applications and new application domains of heterogeneous platforms;
- Integration of parallel and distributed computing on
heterogeneous platforms;
- Experience of porting parallel software from supercomputers
to heterogeneous platforms;
- Fault tolerance of parallel computations on heterogeneous
- Algorithms, models and tools for grid, desktop grid, cloud,
and green computing.


Authors are encouraged to submit original, unpublished research or overviews
on Algorithms, Models and Tools for Parallel Computing on Heterogeneous Platforms.
Manuscripts should be limited to 12 pages in Springer LNCS stylesheet and
submitted through the EasyChair Conference System. Accepted papers
that are presented at the workshop will be published in revised form in a special
Euro-Par Workshop Volume in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series after
the Euro-Par conference. Approval for a special issue with selected and revised
articles from the workshop, to be published in the journal Concurrency and Computation:
Practice and Experience, is pending.
