High Performance Graphics is the leading international forum for performance-oriented graphics systems research including innovative algorithms, efficient implementations, and hardware architecture. The conference brings together researchers, engineers, and architects to discuss the complex interactions of parallel hardware, novel programming models, and efficient algorithms in the design of systems for current and future graphics and visual computing applications. The program features three days of paper and industry presentations, with ample time for discussions during breaks, lunches, and the conference banquet. The conference is co-located with SIGGRAPH 2013 in Anaheim, California, and will take place on July 19-21, 2013 (the weekend before SIGGRAPH). More information, calls for papers and posters and submission instructions are available at http://www.highperformancegraphics.org.
The Third Workshop on Parallel Computing and Optimization (PCO13) is held in conjunction with the IEEE IPDPS symposium, Boston, USA, May 24, 2013. Paper submission deadline is January 4, 2013.
The workshop on Parallel Computing and Optimization aims at providing a forum for scientific researchers and engineers on recent advances in the field of parallel or distributed computing for difficult combinatorial optimization problems, like 0-1 multidimensional knapsack problems and cutting stock problems, large scale linear programming problems, nonlinear optimization problems and global optimization problems. Emphasis will be placed on new techniques for the solution of these difficult problems like cooperative methods for integer programming problems and polynomial optimization methods. Aspects related to Combinatorial Scientific Computing (CSC) will also be treated. Finally, the use of new approaches in parallel computing like GPU or hybrid computing, peer to peer computing and cloud computing will be considered. Application to planning, logistics, manufacturing, finance, telecommunications and computational biology will be considered.

The 21st High Performance Computing Symposium (HPC 2013), devoted to the impact of high performance computing and communications on computer simulations. Advances in multicore and many-core architectures, networking, high end computers, large data stores, and middleware capabilities are ushering in a new era of high performance parallel and distributed simulations. Along with these new capabilities come new challenges in computing and system modeling. The goal of HPC 2013 is to encourage innovation in high performance computing
and communication technologies and to promote synergistic advances in modeling methodologies and simulation. It will promote the exchange of ideas and information between universities, industry, and national laboratories about new developments in system modeling, high performance computing and communication, and scientific computing and simulation.

The Sixth Workshop on General Purpose Processing Using GPUs (GPGPU6) is held in conjunction with ASPLOS XVIII, Houston, TX, March 17, 2013.
Overview: The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum to discuss new and emerging general-purpose purpose programming environments and platforms, as well as evaluate applications that have been able to harness the horsepower provided by these platforms. This year’s work is particularly interested on new heterogeneous GPU platforms. Papers are being sought on many aspects of GPUs, including (but not limited to):
- GPU applications + GPU compilation
- GPU programming environments + GPU power/efficiency
- GPU architectures + GPU benchmarking/measurements
- Multi-GPU systems + Heterogeneous GPU platforms
Submission Information: Authors should submit their papers using the ACM SIG Proceedings format in double-column style using the directions on the conference website at http://www.ece.neu.edu/groups/nucar/GPGPU/GPGPU6. Submitted papers will be evaluated based on originality, significance to topics, technical soundness, and presentation quality. At least one author must register and attend GPGPU to present the work. Accepted papers will be included in preliminary proceedings and distributed at the event. All papers will be made available at the workshop and will also be published in the ACM Conference Proceedings Series.
PCO13 is to be held in conjunction with IEEE IPDPS, Boston, USA, May 20-24, 2013. Paper Submission Deadline: December 21, 2012.

CfP: 3rd International Workshop on Performance Modeling, Benchmarking and Simulation of High Performance Computing Systems (PMBS12)August 11th, 2012
This workshop is concerned with the comparison of high-performance computing systems through performance modeling, benchmarking or the use of tools such as simulators. We are particularly interested in research which reports the ability to measure and make tradeoffs in software/hardware co-design to improve sustained application performance. We are also keen to capture the assessment of future systems, for example through work that ensures continued application scalability through peta- and exa-scale systems.

General purpose GPU recently has successfully drawn attention from high-performance computing due to higher core density and lower EPI value than CPU. The newest report of Top500 shows that there are thirty-nine supercomputing systems using GPUs to accelerate data computation: two Chinese systems called Tianhe-1A and Nebulaeare at No. 2 and No. 4 and one Japanese system called Tsubame 2.0 at No. 5 are on this list. Amazon has announced the availability of Cluster GPU Instances for Amazon EC2 to deliver the computational power of GPUs in Clouds. More and more researchers have used GPU clusters instead of CPU clusters for resolving their massive-computation problems such as high energy physics, scientific simulation, data mining, climate forecast, and earthquake prediction. As the impact of GPU on both of the academic and engineering areas is increasing rapidly, many issues of GPU cluster computing have to be addressed further in order for improving and enriching the user experience and applications of GPU cluster computing. For example, the complexity of the GPU programming such as CUDA and OpenCL is too high for users to move their applications towards this new computing platform since these programming interfaces and models are quite different from MPI or OpenMP, which are popularly used in CPU cluster computing. In addition, users lack friendly and efficient tools such as debugger and performance analyzer during the period of program development. On the other hand, the computing systems built on GPU clusters require useful tools in emergence to effectively monitor and manage GPU resources for system throughput and to maintain the QoS and reliability of the execution of user applications. As previously described, this special issue is aimed at providing a forum for researchers to present their innovative design, implementation, and experience in software of GPU cluster computing. We encourage authors to submit high-quality, original, unpublished papers. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
Together with EuroPar-12, the 5th Workshop on UnConventional High Performance Computing 2012 (UCHPC 2012) will take place on August 27/28 at Rhodes Island, Greece. The workshop tries to capture solutions for HPC which are unconventional today but could become conventional and significant tomorrow. While GPGPU is already used a lot in HPC, there still are all kind of issues around best exploitation and productivity for the programmer. Submission deadline: June 6, 2012. For more details, see
