IWOCL 2015 OpenCL Developer Conference and Advanced OpenCL Tutorial

April 22nd, 2015

OpenCL LogoStanford, CA – 21 April 2015. The organisers of IWOCL (“eye-wok-ul”), the International Workshop on OpenCL, today announced that AMD and HP have sponsored the Advanced Hands-On OpenCL Tutorial that will kick-off IWOCL 2015. The tutorial, which will focus on advanced OpenCL concepts, is an extension of the highly successful ‘Hands on OpenCL’ course which has received over 3,000 downloads. Simon McIntosh-Smith, Senior Lecturer in High Performance Computing and Architectures at the University of Bristol and one of the authors of the original open-source course will lead the tutorial.

The full-day Advanced Hands-On OpenCL tutorial takes place on Monday 11th May at the Li Ka Shing Center, Stanford University. Registration is $145. For additional information visit: http://www.iwocl.org/conf-2015/handsonopencl-tutorial/ Read the rest of this entry »

CFP: 8th Workshop on UnConventional High Performance Computing 2015

April 13th, 2015

Recent issues with the power consumption of conventional HPC hardware results in both new interest in accelerator hardware and in usage of mass-market hardware originally not designed for HPC. The most prominent examples are GPUs, but FPGAs, DSPs and embedded designs are also possible candidates to provide higher power efficiency, as they are used in energy-restriced environments, such as smartphones or tablets. The so-called “dark silicon” forecast, i.e. not all transistors may be active at the same time, may lead to even more specialized hardware in future mass-market products. Exploiting this hardware for HPC can be a worthwhile challenge.

UCHPC is held in conjunction with Euro-Par 2015, August 24/25 in Vienna, Austria. More information,including the full call for papers, submission instructions and important dates: uchpc15.lrr.in.tum.de

CfP: High-Performance Graphics 2015: August 7–9

February 10th, 2015

High Performance Graphics is the leading international forum for performance-oriented graphics and imaging systems research, including innovative algorithms, efficient implementations, languages, parallelism, compilers, hardware and architectures for high-performance graphics. 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.

High Performance Graphics is co-located with SIGGRAPH 2015 in Los Angeles, United States, and will take place on August 7–9, 2015.

CfP: Optimization of Parallel Scientific Applications with Accelerated HPC

October 29th, 2014

Since 2011, the most powerful supercomputers systems ranked in the Top500 list have been hybrid systems composed of thousands of nodes that includes CPUs and accelerators, as Xeon Phi and GPUs. Programming and deploying applications on those systems is still a challenge due to complexity of the system and the need to mix several programming interfaces (MPI, CUDA, Intel Xeon Phi) in the same application. This special issue of the International Journal of Computers & Electrical Engineering is aimed at exploring the state of the art of developing applications in accelerated massive HPC architectures, including practical issues of hybrid usage models with MPI, OpenMP, and other accelerators programming models. The idea is to publish novel work on the use of available programming interfaces (MPI, CUDA, Intel Xeon Phi) and tools for code development, application performance optimizations, application deployment on accelerated systems, as well as the advantages and limitations of accelerated HPC systems. Experiences with real-world applications, including scientific computing, numerical simulations, healthcare, energy, data-analysis, etc. are also encouraged.

CfP: GPGPU 2015

October 29th, 2014

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, new forms of concurrency, and novel/irregular applications that can leverage these platforms. Papers are being sought on many aspects of GPUs, including (but not limited to): Read the rest of this entry »

CfP: International Workshop on Data (Co-)Processing on Heterogeneous Hardware DAPHNE 2015

October 8th, 2014

The goal of this one-day workshop is to investigate challenges and opportunities for data processing on existing and upcoming heterogeneous hardware architectures. The workshop is co-located  to EDBT/ICDT 2015, March 23-27, Brussels, Belgium, and more information is available at http://daphne.uk.to.

Increased heterogeneity is one of the major current challenges in data processing on modern hardware. With multi-core CPUs, graphics cards, massively parallel accelerator cards (e.g. Intel Xeon Phi), heterogeneous mobile processors (e.g. ARM big.LITTLE) and FPGAs, we already face a huge variety of available processing devices with different capabilities, strengths and weaknesses. This trend is expected to accelerate in the near future, and tomorrow’s database systems will need to exploit and embrace this increased heterogeneity in order to keep up with the performance requirements of the modern information society.
