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 massively parallel hardware, novel programming models, efficient graphics algorithms, and novel applications. HPG2012, which will take place on June 25-27, is co-located with the Eurographics Symposium on Rendering in Paris, France.

Original and innovative performance-oriented contributions from all areas of graphics are cordially invited for both the papers and the posters track. Please refer to the conference website, located at http://www.highperformancegraphics.org, for more details and the full call.

CfP: ADBIS workshop GPUs in Databases GID 2012

February 22nd, 2012

In recent years, utilizing Graphics Processing Units for general processing has become a very popular approach to obtain low-cost high performance computing applications. Algorithms from many computer science application domains have been adapted to utilize GPUs to increase the efficiency of processing. Unfortunately, while other application domains strongly benefit from utilizing the GPUs, databases related applications seem not to get enough attention. The main goal of GPUs in Databases workshop is to fill this gap. This event is devoted to sharing the knowledge related to applying GPUs in Database environments and to discuss possible future development of this application domain.

The list of topics includes: data compression on GPU, GPUs in databases and data warehouses, data mining using GPUs, stream processing, applications of GPUs in bioinformatics and data oriented GPU primitives.

CFP: High Performance Graphics 2012

January 6th, 2012

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 massively parallel hardware, novel programming models, efficient graphics algorithms, and novel applications. High Performance Graphics was founded in 2009 to synthesize and broaden on two important and well-respected conferences in computer graphics: Graphics Hardware and Interactive Ray Tracing.

HPG 2012 is co-sponsored by Eurographics and ACM SIGGRAPH and will take place on June 25-27, is co-located with the Eurographics Symposium on Rendering in Paris, France. We invite original and innovative performance-oriented contributions from all areas of graphics, including hardware architectures, rendering, physics, animation, simulation, and data structures, with topics including (but not limited to): Interactive rendering pipelines (hardware or software); Interactive rendering algorithms (hardware or software); Graphics hardware and systems; Languages and compilation; Parallel computing for graphics; and Mobile graphics. Please see the conference website for the full CFP.

CfP: High Performance Simulation of Biological Systems

January 4th, 2012

This workshop is organized by Horacio Pérez-Sánchez and José M. Cecilia and takes place in conjunction with the International Conference on Modeling & Applied Simulation (MAS 2012). The goal is to explore the use of emerging parallel computing architectures as well as High Performance Computing systems (Supercomputers, Clusters, Grids) for the simulation of relevant biological systems. We welcome papers, not submitted elsewhere for review, with a focus in topics of interest ranging from but not limited to:

  • Parallel stochastic simulation
  • Biological and Numerical parallel computing
  • Parallel and distributed architectures
  • Emerging processing architectures (e.g. GPUs, FPGAs, mixed CPU-GPU or CPU-FPGA)
  • Parallel Model checking techniques.
  • Parallel algorithms for biological analysis.
  • Cluster and Grid Deployment for system biology
  • Tools and applications
  • Biologically inspired algorithms.

More details, including dates, deadlines and submission instructions, are available on the workshop web page.

WCCM Minisymposium: Applications and methods of GPU

December 7th, 2011

Since the last WCCM (Sydney 2009), where we organized a similarly themed minisymposium, the scientific and engineering communities have gained much experience in using GPU hardware for their applications. The number of publications addressing GPU applications has skyrocketed, while researchers have developed much common understanding of how to implement numerical methods in this architecture. Moreover, we now find that three of the five fastest computers in the world, as measured for the Top500 list, are GPU-based systems. There is much conversation about GPUs playing a leading role in the exascale computing world. In summary, this topic is of wide interest; frankly, it is all the rage. This minisymposium will concentrate presentations from the top researchers in the world using GPU hardware for applications in all branches of computational mechanics. We encourage contributions that address innovative methods to use GPUs efficiently, studies in numerical methods as they apply to adapting to the hardware and perspectives on the future of GPUs as we advance toward exascale.

WCCM will be held at São Paolo, Brazil, 8–13 July 2012.  The abstract submission deadline is  December 31, 2011. More information: http://www.wccm2012.com, http://barbagroup.bu.edu/Barba_group/Events.html.

CfP: 4th Workshop on using Emerging Parallel Architectures (WEPA)

November 20th, 2011

The 4th Workshop on using Emerging Parallel Architectures (WEPA 2012) is held in conjunction with the International Conference on Computational Science (ICCS 2012), Omaha, Nebraska, June 2-4, 2011.

The computing landscape has undergone significant transformation with the emergence of more powerful processing elements such as GPUs, FPGAs, multi-cores, etc. On the multi-core front, Moore’s Law has transcended beyond the single processor boundary with the prediction that the number of cores will double every 18 months. Going forward, the primary method of gaining processor performance will be through parallelism. Multi-core technology has visibly penetrated the global market. Accordingly to the latest Top500 lists the HPC landscape has evolved from supercomputer systems into large clusters of dual or quad-core processors. Furthermore, GPUs, FPGAs and multi-cores have been shown to be formidable computing alternatives, where certain classes of applications witness more than one order of magnitude improvement over their GPP counterpart. Therefore, future computational science centers will employ resources such as FPGA and GPU architectures to serve as co-processors to offload appropriate compute-intensive portions of applications from the servers.
