The 4th workshop on UnConventional High Performance Computing 2011 (UCHPC 2011), August 29th, 2011, Bordeaux, France, will be held in conjunction with Euro-Par 2011. This workshop is organized by Anders Hast, Josef Weidendorfer and Jan-Philipp Weiss.
As the word “UnConventional” in the title suggests, the workshop focuses on hardware or platforms used for HPC, which were not intended for HPC in the first place. Reasons could be raw computing power, good performance per watt, or low cost in general. Thus, UCHPC tries to capture solutions for HPC which are unconventional today but perhaps conventional tomorrow. For example, the computing power of platforms for games recently raised rapidly. This motivated the use of GPUs for computing (GPGPU), or even building computational grids from game consoles. The recent trend of integrating GPUs on processor chips seem to be very beneficial for use of both parts for HPC. Other examples for “unconventional” hardware are embedded, low-power processors, upcoming many-core architectures, FPGAs or DSPs. Thus, interesting devices for research in unconventional HPC are not only standard server or desktop systems, but also relative cheap devices due to being mass market products, such as smartphones, netbooks, tablets and small NAS servers. For example, smartphones seem to become more performance hungry every day. Only imagination sets the limit for use.

We are pleased to announce High-Performance Graphics 2011. 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 innovative applications.
The conference is co-located with ACM SIGGRAPH 2011 (Aug. 5-7) in Vancouver, Canada. More information including the full call for papers with deadlines and submission instructions, is available at http://www.highperformancegraphics.org.
The First International Workshop on Accelerators Architectures for the Masses (WACy 2011) will be held in conjunction with 25th Int’l. Conference on Supercomputing (ICS 2011), on June 4th 2011. The submission of short papers (approximately ~6 pages) is encouraged. This workshop is organized by Arrvindh Shriraman and Tor Aamodt, the submission deadline is April 15th 11:59pm PST.

FGC 2011 – The Second International Workshop on Frontier of GPU Computing, is held in conjunction with CSE 2011, Dalian, China, 24 – 26 August, 2011. More information can be found at http://www.comp.hkbu.edu.hk/~chxw/fgc2011/index.php.
The First International Workshop on Characterizing Applications for Heterogeneous Exascale Systems (co-located with ICS, June 4, 2011) is intended to provide evaluations of the characteristics of computational kernels and applications, and how different software stacks impact them, to guide future accelerator-based HPC system designs.
We solicit papers on all aspects of HPC application studies, especially those that involve accelerators such as GPUs, FPGAs, etc. The topics include (but are not limited to):
- Categorizing/characterizing of HPC applications and kernels with respect to patterns in computation structure, communication, cache accesses, memory, I/O, and file accesses.
- Evaluating the importance of individual kernels within an entire application.
- Modeling for applications running on accelerator-based heterogeneous HPC systems.
- Implication of workload characterization in heterogeneous design issues.
- Benchmarking of applications, kernels or software stacks and tools supporting applications.
The call for papers and more details about the workshop may be found on the website.
