CfP: Facing the Multicore-Challenge II

May 11th, 2011

Facing the Multicore Challenge II – Conference for Young Scientists, will be held September 28-30, 2011, at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany

The conference focuses on topics of multi-/manycore and coprocessor technologies and the impact on computational science, day-to-day work, and for large-scale applications. The goal is to address and discuss current issues including mathematical modeling, numerical methods, design of parallel algorithms, aspects of microprocessor architecture, parallel programming languages, compilers, hardware-aware computing, heterogeneous platforms, emerging architectures, tools, performance tuning, and requirements for large-scale applications.

The conference places emphasis on the support and advancement of young scientists in an interdisciplinary environment.
You are cordially invited to submit a paper with unpublished and original  work. Furthermore, ongoing research can be presented in a short talk or poster.

Submission topics for conference submissions include (but are not limited to):

  • Emerging hardware architectures and multicore technologies
  • Parallel programming models, environments and languages
  • Parallelization strategies in hybrid and hierarchical setups
  • Hardware-aware computing and auto-tuning strategies
  • Heterogeneous computing, adaptive and reconfigurable computing
  • Mathematical modeling and design of parallel algorithms
  • Aspects of microprocessor technologies and prospects of manycores
  • Virtualization strategies and hardware transparency
  • Library and tool support
  • Scalability issues and portability of software solutions
  • Performance analysis and modeling; memory behavior analysis
  • Compiler techniques and code optimization strategies
  • Efficient numerical methods and mathematical modelling
  • Practice and experience of multicore programming
  • Parallel applications and benchmarks

Short talks and posters: Graduate students and Ph.D. students are encouraged to present a short talk (10 min.) or poster on their current research project. Please submit a one-page abstract of your work.

Tutorials: The conference is complemented by tutorials on multicore technologies and parallel programming aspects.
