Workshop on Programmability and Architectures for Heterogeneous Multicores

Final Submission Deadline
October 22, 2017

The Eleventh International Workshop on Programmability and Architectures for Heterogeneous Multicores (MULTIPROG-2018)
in conjunction with HiPEAC 2018
Manchester, UK
January 24, 2018

Paper submission: October 22, 2017 (anywhere on Earth)
Author notification: November 27, 2017

Computer manufacturers have embarked on the many-core roadmap, promising to add more and more cores/hardware threads on their chips. The ever-increasing number of cores and heterogeneity in architectures has placed new burdens on the programming community. Software needs to be parallelized and optimized for accelerators such as GPUs in order to take advantage of the new breed of multi-/many-core computers. As a result, progress in how to easily harness the computing power of multi-core architectures is in great demand.

The eleventh edition of the MULTIPROG workshop aims to bring together researchers interested in programming models, runtimes, and computer architecture. The workshop’s emphasis is on heterogeneous architectures and covers issues such as:
– How can future parallel programming models improve software productivity?
– How should compilers, runtimes and architectures support programming models and emerging applications?
– How to design efficient data structures and innovative algorithms?

MULTIPROG is intended for quick publication of early results, work-in-progress, etc., and is not intended to prevent later publication of extended papers. Informal proceedings with accepted papers will be made available at the workshop and online at the workshop’s web page.

Papers are sought on topics including, but not limited to:
– Multi-core architectures: Architectural support for compilers/programming models; Processor (core) architecture and accelerators; Memory system architecture; Performance, power, temperature, and reliability issues
– Heterogeneous computing: Algorithms and data structures for heterogeneous systems; Applications for heterogeneous computing and real-time graphics
– Programming models for multi-core architectures: Language extensions; Run-time systems; Compiler optimizations and techniques
– Benchmarking of multi-/many-core architectures: Tools for discovering and understanding parallelism; Tools for understanding performance and debugging; Case studies and performance evaluation

MULTIPROG accepts contributions of regular research papers describing early research on emerging topics.
Papers should preferably use LNCS format (up to 12 pages, not including references). Single column (up to 12-Pages) or double column (up to 6-pages) formats are also accepted.

The authors of the accepted papers will be requested to provide the final version of their paper in LNCS format. Please use one the templates below:
