CfP: 2nd International Workshop on GPUs and Scientific Applications (GPUScA 2011)

June 3rd, 2011

The 2nd International Workshop on GPUs and Scientific Applications (GPUScA 2011) will be held on October 10, 2011, in conjunction with the International Conference on Parallel Architectures and Compilation Techniques (PACT 2011).

The goal of this workshop is to bring together GPU experts with computational science experts. The workshop addresses programming approaches and key techniques to leverage the computing power of GPUs. Experiences gained while adapting scientific codes to run efficiently on such architectures are welcome. The workshop solicits unpublished papers about research challenges and advances addressing porting of scientific codes and algorithms to GPU platforms.

Submission deadline: June 28, 2011. The topics of the workshop include but are not limited to:

  • Scientific applications optimized for GPUs
  • Programming approaches for multicore CPUs and GPUs
  • Stream computing
  • Programming environments for GPUs
  • Benchmarking/measurements for GPUs
  • GPU architectures
  • OpenCL and CUDA

Extended versions of the best papers will be published in the International Journal of Computational Science and Engineering (IJCSE) as part of the Special Issue on GPUs and Accelerators for Scientific Applications. The workshop chairs are Eduard Mehofer, Markus Schordan, Dan Quinlan, and Beniamino Di Martino. For further information see the workshop website:
