The First Annual Workshop on Heterogeneous Architectures:
Software and Hardware (HASH)

June 14, 2014, Minneapolis, MN, USA
(co-located with ISCA 2014)

The architecture and microarchitecture of multicore/manycore
processors is moving rapidly toward heterogeneity. Heterogeneous
multicore/manycore processors provide a promising opportunity to
achieve better performance together with power efficiency. However,
the complexity of the architecture, microarchitecture, software
applications, and system software presents a challenging problem. The
varying requirements of the different applications running on a single
machine, the changing behavior of a single application during its
lifetime, as well as the ever-changing characteristics of
multiprogramming environment make the design and programming of
heterogeneous architectures a big challenge.

The Heterogeneous Architecture: Software and Hardware workshop
provides a high-quality forum for computer scientists and engineers to
present their latest research findings in the rapidly evolving field of
heterogeneous architecture where the
heterogeneouity can be in the form of cores of different strength,
general purpose cores and GPUs, cores with different memory
hierarchies, accelerators, etc; as well as their interconnect. The
interaction among the different layers of the stack is part of the
objectives, which involves compilers, OS, and programming models.

Submissions deadline: March 10, 2014
Notification: April 10, 2014
Camera-Copy Papers Due: April 30, 2014

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

*Memory hierarchy for heterogeneous multicores
