CALL FOR PAPERS ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ (also attached in a printer-friendly version)
The Applications for Multi and Many Cores Processors (A4MMC) workshop, held in conjunction with the 37th International Symposium on Computer Architecture (ISCA), focuses on multi-core applications. A4MMC provides a forum where multi and many core application designers can exchange knowledge, insights and discoveries, and discuss their latest research advances.
We encourage authors working on all aspects of applications for multi/many core platforms to submit their unpublished research work. The topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to:
* Applications and algorithms case-studies + Application implementation and optimization on MMCPs + Evaluation and/or implementation of new algorithms on MMCPs + Porting and parallelization strategies + MMCP-aware algorithms
* Programming Models and Tools + Evaluations of "classical" parallelization paradigms on MMCPs + Evaluations of existing MMCP programming models + Comparisons of application implementations using different MMCP programming models + Compilers, debuggers, profilers
* Performance and Power Analysis + Methodologies, Metrics, and Benchmarking + Comparative studies of MMCPs architectures, focusing on performance, efficiency, and/or power-consumption + Evaluating and tuning application power-footprints + Power-efficient MMCP algorithms
We invite two types of submissions:
Full papers ~~~~~~~~~~~ Not to exceed 12 pages in LNCS format, providing application analysis, a presentation of the used algorithms and specific design or implementation techniques, as well as the performance evaluation and/or analysis of the application on the target platform(s). Papers that indicate requirements and/or useful features to be included in next hardware generations of hardware for the sake of performance, platform efficiency, and/or programming productivity are especially encouraged.
Short papers ~~~~~~~~~~~~ Not to exceed 4 pages (plus 1 additional page only used for bibliography or annexes) in LNCS format, discussing work in progress for interesting applications. Application analysis and promising parallelization strategies/techniques/models should be included. Preliminary performance results are appreciated, but not mandatory.
For any accepted paper, at least one author is expected to attend the workshop and present the paper. The A4MMC organizing committee is currently working to include our proceedings in a common volume of post-proceedings for all ISCA workshops. An agreement with either LNCS or IEEE/ACM is pending.
Important dates ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The deadline for both full and short papers is April 9th, 2010, 23:59:59 PM CET. Author notifications are due on May 2nd, 2010. The final versions of accepted papers till May 30th, 2010.
