One of the most important principles in designing today’s computing
systems is to exploit parallelism. Mobile platforms are no exception
and we find increasingly more instances of the use of parallelism in
them. At the hardware level, there are: multiple processor cores,
GPGPU, accelerators, multiple banks of memory, multiple channels to
non-volatile memory chips, and multiple radios, to name a few. At the
software level, parallel and concurrent threading techniques are
commonly employed to improve responsiveness and throughput in the OS
and applications alike. We anticipate that future mobile platforms
will make more extensive and creative use of parallelism. This
workshop focuses on how parallelism is, and can be, utilized in
hardware, software and their interaction in order to improve the user
experiences with mobile platforms.

Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to:
– Emerging parallel application processor architectures and hardware
features in mobile platforms;
– Compelling future applications on mobile platforms that call for
unprecedented parallelism;
– Mobile GPGPU architectures and programming models;
– Hardware accelerators for mobile applications;
– Storage architectures in mobile platforms;
– Radio and networking architectures in mobile platforms;
– Compiler support for parallel mobile platforms;
– OS support to accommodate and promote parallelism in mobile
– Experiences in parallel mobile applications development;
– Novel techniques to improve responsiveness by exploiting parallelism;
– Novel techniques to improve performance/energy by exploiting parallelism;
– Mobile platform performance evaluation methodologies;
– Application benchmarks for mobile platforms;
– Characterization of emerging workloads on mobile platforms; and
– Impact and interaction of emerging technologies to mobile platforms

Detailed instructions for electronic submission will be posted on the
conference web site. For additional information regarding paper
submissions, please contact the Program Co-chairs. The workshop aims
at providing a forum for researchers, engineers and students from
academia and industry to discuss their latest research in designing
mobile platforms and systems, to bring their ideas and research
problems to the attention of others, and to obtain valuable and
instant feedback from fellow researchers.

Submit a 2‐page presentation abstract to a web‐based submission system
(TBA) by March 31, 2015. Notification of acceptance will be sent out
by April 22, 2015. Final presentation material (to be posted on the
workshop web site) due June 4, 2015. For additional information
regarding paper submissions, please contact the organizers.
