Mini-Symposium on Energy and Resilience in Parallel Programming (ERPP 2015)
in Conjunction with ParCo 2015
Edinburgh, Scotland, UK
September 3-4 2015
 

ERPP provides a forum to broadly explore the implications of energy and resilience
on the principles and practice of parallel programming. ERPP aims to present original
research that uses energy and resilience as first-class resources in parallel
programming languages, libraries and models and demonstrates how parallel
programming can improve energy-efficiency and resilience of large-scale
computing systems or many-core embedded systems. The minisymposium also
intends to explore how energy and resilience management in hardware or system
software may affect the performance of existing parallel programming environments.

The topics explored by ERPP include but are not limited to:
– Parallel programming abstractions for energy and resilience
– Compiler and runtime support for energy- and resilience-aware execution
– Parallel libraries and auto-tuning for energy and resilience
– Performance of parallel programming languages, libraries and tools in energy-
constrained environments
– Measurement and characterization of resilience in parallel programming
models, languages and libraries
– Measurement and characterization of energy in parallel programming models,
languages and libraries
– New computing paradigms for improving energy and resilience in parallel
programming, such as approximate computing or near-threshold computing

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES:
We call for high-quality, original contributions (in English language) related
to the minisymposium topics. Extended abstracts of at least 4 pages should be
submitted by June 23 2015 and will be published in a book of abstracts. Final,
camera-ready versions of accepted full length papers (up to 10 pages) must be
prepared in October 2015 (after the minisymposium).

IMPORTANT DATES:
June 23, 2015: Submission deadline for extended abstracts

Fourth Workshop on Computer Architecture Research Directions (CARD 2015)
in conjunction with ISCA 2015
Portland, OR, USA
Sunday, June 14, 2015
 

CARD 2015 presents three mini-panels consisting of three experts in the field,
two as panelists and the third as a moderator/panelist. The purpose of this
workshop is to serve as a forum in which experts in each field can debate the
state of the field and future directions. The format is designed to quickly
focus on areas of disagreement, rather than expounding on areas of agreement
which, presumably, have ceased to be controversial, at least between the two
panelists. The mini-panels are intended to help clarify the open issues of
each topic and to discuss those open issues. The hope is that the workshop will
be useful to a diverse audience from a graduate student looking for good thesis
topic areas to a senior researcher who wants to hear the opinions of other area
experts.

Each 60 minute panel will consist of an opening statement from each panelist
(10 minutes each, 20 minutes total), discussion between the moderator and
panelists (5 to 10 minutes), and questions from the audience (30 to 35 minutes).

CARD 2015 consists of following three mini-panels:

Mini-panel #1: Open-source versus Proprietary ISAs
Moderator: Mark Hill (University of Wisconsin)
Panelist: Dave Patterson (University of California – Berkeley)
Panelist: Dave Christie (AMD)

Mini-panel #2: FPGAs versus GPUs for Datacenters
Moderator: Babak Falsafi (EPFL)
Panelist: Desh Singh (Altera)
Panelist: Bill Dally (Stanford / NVIDIA)

Mini-panel #3: Impact of Future Technologies
Moderator: Trevor Mudge (University of Michigan)
Panelist: Fred Chong (University of Chicago)
Panelist: Igor Markov (University of Michigan)

Descriptions of each panel and the panelists position statement should be
posted on the CARD website shortly.

4th International Workshop on Heterogeneous and Unconventional
Cluster Architectures and Applications (HUCAA 2015)

In conjunction with IEEE CLUSTER 2015
Chicago, IL, USA
Sept. 8-11, 2015
 

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

The workshop on Heterogeneous and Unconventional Cluster Architectures
and Applications gears to gather recent work on heterogeneous and
unconventional cluster architectures and applications, which might
have an impact on future mainstream cluster architectures. This
includes any cluster architecture that is not based on the usual
commodity components and therefore makes use of some special hard- or
software elements, or that is used for special and unconventional
applications. In particular we call for GPUs and other accelerators
(Intel MIC/Xeon Phi, FPGA) used at cluster level. Even though
accelerators are already used pervasively, we still see many
unconventional and even disruptive uses of them.

This year, we especially call for methods, techniques and best
practices to improve the energy efficiency of cluster computing. This
includes for instance specialized hardware and power-/energy-aware
software layers. Power consumption is a hard constraint, and
predictions show that this trend will not revert in the future. For
the nascent field of power- and energy-aware computing, we see a
large need in sharing experiences, best practices and new ideas.

TOPICS OF INTEREST:
This year, HUCAA particularly calls for:
– New methods and techniques for improved energy efficiency

Papers submitted to this topic will be preferred given equal scores
with other contributions. However, HUCAA still welcomes contributions
to other topics, including:
– Clustered GPUs, Xeon Phis or other accelerators
– Runtimes for heterogeneous cluster architectures
– New industry and technology trends and their potential impact
– High-performance, data-intensive, and power-aware computing
– Communication methods for distributed or clustered accelerators
– Application-specific cluster and datacenter architectures
– Emerging programming paradigms for parallel heterogeneous computing
– Software cluster-level virtualization for consolidation purposes
– Hardware techniques for resource aggregation
– New uses of GPUs, FPGAs, and other specialized hardware

IMPORTANT DATES:
Paper submission: June 10th, 2015
Notification of acceptance: July 15th, 2015
Camera-ready paper: August 1st, 2015
Workshop: in between September 8-11, 2015 (final day TBD)

PAPER SUBMISSION GUIDELINES:
Published papers will appear in the conference proceedings.
Submissions may not exceed 8 pages in PDF format including figures and
references, and must be formatted in the 2-column IEEE format.
Submitted papers must be original work that has not appeared in and is
not under consideration for another conference or journal. Work in
progress is welcome, but first results should be made available as a
proof of concept. Submissions only consisting of a proposal will be
rejected. Please visit the workshop website for additional details.

iNIS 2015 is to provide a platform for both hardware and software
researchers to interact under one umbrella for further development of
efficient and secure information processing technologies. Efficient and
secure data sensing, storage and processing play pivotal roles in the
current information age. State-of-the-art nanoelectronic technology
based hardware systems cater to the needs of efficient sensing, storage,
and computing. At the same time, efficient algorithms and software used
for faster analysis and retrieval of desired information are becoming
increasingly important. Big data which are large, complex data sets, are
now an integral part of the Internet world. Storing and processing needs
of the enormous amount of structured and unstructured data are getting
increasingly challenging. At the same time, Internet of Things (IoT) and
Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) have been evolving with the simultaneous
development of hardware and software. The performance and efficiency of
the present as well as the future generation of computing and
information processing systems are largely dependent upon advances in
both hardware and software.

WARP: 6th Workshop on Architectural Research Prototyping
Co-Located with ISCA 2015
Portland, Oregon, USA
Sunday, June 14th, 2015 (Afternoon)
 

Building prototype systems can be one of the best ways to validate
assumptions, gain intuition about practical design issues, and
provide platforms for future software research. While the research
ideas behind these prototypes can be published in top-tier
conferences, there are not many venues suitable for focusing on the
actual prototype itself. At the same time, building an FPGA, ASIC, or
full-custom computer architecture prototype is a non-trivial endeavor
and requires a significant financial and time commitment. This
workshop is intended as a forum for the builders in our community to
share their practical on-the-ground experiences, to provide a status
update on their progress, and to convey insights for those
considering prototyping their ideas.

This half-day workshop will be held on Sunday, June 14th, 2015,
co-located with ISCA-42 in Portland, OR. The technical program
committee and workshop organizers have selected a particularly strong
program from a record number of submissions. The 11 talks cover a
broad range of exciting prototypes including: millimeter-scale
full-system sensor motes and large-scale ASIC designs with 100’s of
millions of transistors; chip tapeouts in older technologies, chip
tapeouts in a state-of-the-art 28nm process, and chip tapeouts using
3D integration; multicore chip tapeouts with heterogeneous
accelerators; and FPGA prototypes focusing on multicore processors,
network interfaces, and memory systems.

Participation is encouraged for anyone interested in learning about
some of the best prototyping work going on within the computer
architecture research community. Participation is also encouraged for
researchers that have recently constructed or are currently
constructing prototypes, for those considering embarking on a
prototyping effort, or even for those who strongly disagree with the
need to build prototypes.
