call for paper
The final program, papers and talks are now available. Thanks to all those who attended
the workshop, and for all those who submitted papers.
The drive toward multicore systems is led by technology
advances such as increasing chip densities and lower design costs
of replicated functionality as compared to increasingly
complex high-end microprocessors. Multicore systems are already
available from leading vendors, and all technology roadmaps suggest a
path toward more and more cores on a chip.
Call for Papers
The goal of this workshop is to provide a
forum to discuss the impact of the multicore paradigm on the software
stack with emphasis on new workloads, programming models, compilers,
runtime systems, and tools for performance and functional
debugging. The workshop will also discuss the impact of multicores on
teaching and education.
The workshop is a half day session and will feature invited
talks from leading researchers in the field, as well as presentations
selected from the submissions.
The workshop provides a venue to bring together researchers and
practitioners working on enabling technology for multicore
systems. Original research contributions or position statements
are solicited in areas including but not limited to the following:
- Applications and workloads for multicores
- Programming models for implicit and explicit parallelism
- Assisted parallelization
- Relationship to other parallel computing domains (embedded and HPC)
- O/S and runtime systems for multicores
- Multicore virtualization
- Managing heterogeneity in multicores
- Performance tuning of parallel workloads
- Debugging parallel software
Authors can choose to submit papers in one of three formats:
Idea paper: describes forward looking ideas
with new insights that depart from mainstream research related to
multicores. Idea papers offer novelty rather than technical
Position paper: explains and justifies a
certain point of view (e.g., multicores will fail, new languages are
or are not needed, only a few software companies will survive,
Technical paper: describes ongoing
research methodologies with preliminary results and insights.
Submissions should adhere to the
format. Idea and position paper submissions should not exceed 2 pages.
Technical paper submissions should not exceed 6 pages.
