Call For Papers


The Tenth International Workshop on
Programmability and Architectures for Heterogeneous Multicores (MULTIPROG-2016)

To be held in conjunction with:
the 12th International Conference on
High-Performance and Embedded Architectures and Compilers (HiPEAC)
Stockholm, Sweden, January 24, 2017

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 ninth 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
and online at the workshop's web page

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, in particular GPUs
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
Paper submission: Extended until November 4, 2016 (anywhere on Earth).
Author notification: November 27, 2016

Paper submission
Submissions should not exceed 12 pages and should be formatted according to the
LNCS format for CS Proceedings. This limit includes text, figures, tables and
