Architecture, Languages, Compilation and Hardware support for
Emerging ManYcore systems (ALCHEMY Workshop 2016)

in conjunction with ICCS 2016
San Diego, CA, USA
6-8 June 2016
Submission Deadline – Dec 18, 2015
Notification Due – Jan 27, 2016
Final Version Due – Mar 4, 2016
Workshop dates: Jun 6 – Jun 8, 2016
Massively parallel processors have entered high performance computing
architectures, as well as embedded systems. In this context, developers of
parallel applications, including heavy simulations and scientific calculations,
will have to cope with many-core processors at the early design steps.

In the past sessions of the Alchemy workshop, held together with the ICCS
meeting, we have presented significant contributions on the design of
many-core processors, both in the hardware and the software programming
environment sides, as well as some industrial-grade application case studies.
In this 2016 session, we seek academic and industrial works that contribute to
the design and the programmability of many-core processors.

Topics include, but are not limited to:
– Programming models and languages for many-cores
– Compilers for programming languages
– Runtime generation for parallel programming on manycores
– Architecture support for massive parallelism management
– Enhanced communications for CMP/manycores
– Shared memory, data consistency models and protocols
– New operating systems, or dedicated OS
– Security, crypto systems for manycores
– User feedback on existing manycore architectures (e.g., Adapteva Epiphany,
Intel Phi, Kalray MPPA, ST STHorm, Tilera Gx, TSAR..etc)
– Many-core integration within HPC systems (micro-servers)

This year, there will be two formats for the presentation at the workshop. The
usual full-length paper is 10 pages according to the ICCS format, and the
short-paper format well fitted for works in progress, with a maximum of 2
pages. The accepted papers for full-length paper will be published alongside
with the ICCS proceedings in Procedia Computer Science, whereas the
short-papers will be presentation and poster only at the conference (with
proceedings and presentations available from the workshop website).

The manuscripts of up to 10 pages, written in English and formatted according
to the EasyChair templates, should be submitted electronically.
Templates are available for download in the Easychair right-hand-side menu
in a “New submission” mode.
