CALL FOR PAPERS

COSMIC: international workshop on Code OptimiSation for MultI and many Cores

held in conjunction with the
International Symposium on Code Generation and Optimization (CGO) 2017

Website: http://workshops.inf.ed.ac.uk/cosmic/cosmic17

Austin, TX – February 4 or 5, 2017
===============================================================================

Many-core architectures, such as mobile SOCs, GPGPUs, and deep learning
accelerators, are quickly becoming the norm in computing devices and consumer
electronics. The community sees this development as an essential step in
sustaining the exponential growth of performance in an energy efficient way,
but at present there is no consensus on how software can make best use of it.
Developing parallel applications often starts with an existing sequential
implementation. A key problem is how to discover the parallelism potentially
available and then convert it into a form that can be exploited. Once we have
a parallel implementation, its performance and energy efficiency largely
depend on how it is mapped to the available hardware. Given that hardware is
increasingly diverse and heterogeneous, and that in the era of dark silicon
energy efficiency affects the availability of hardware, how can this
re-mapping be best achieved. Solutions to these two problems form the core
topic of COSMIC'17. Research papers on innovative techniques and experience
papers on insights obtained by experimenting with real-world systems and
applications are both welcome.

===Topic of Interest===
This workshop aims at examining different solutions to these problems and
includes (but is not limited to):

- programming languages and models
- compilers and tools
- runtime systems
- operating systems
- binary translation
- combinations of the above

for homogeneous, heterogeneous multi-core and many-core based systems.

Regular research papers and work-in-progress short papers are welcome.
