IWOCL (“eye-wok-ul”) is an annual meeting of developers, researchers and suppliers to promote the use, evolution and advancement of the OpenCL parallel programming open standard. IWOCL 2014 will take place in Bristol, England on May 12-13, 2014. For additional information visit http://www.iwocl.org
GPGPU-7 (Seventh Workshop on General Purpose Processing Using GPUs) is held in conjunction with ASPLOS in Salt Lake City, Utah, on March 1st, 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. Read the rest of this entry »

2014 International Work-Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedical Engineering (IWBBIO 2014)
7-9 April, 2014. Granada (SPAIN). Special Session: High Performance Computing in Bioinformatics
The goal of this special session 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 and for applications in Bioinformatics, Computational Biology and Computational Chemistry. We welcome papers, not submitted elsewhere for review, with a focus in topics of interest ranging from but not limited to: Read the rest of this entry »
The HSA Foundation will be hosting a Birds of a Feather session on heterogeneous computing on July 24 from 1-2 p.m., at the Anaheim Convention Center, Room 202B. For more info: http://slidesha.re/16JSqK7
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. To address this unconventional hardware, often, new programming approaches and paradigms are required to make best use of it. A second focus of the workshop is on innovative, (yet) unconventional new programming models. To this end, UCHPC tries to capture solutions for HPC which are unconventional today but could become conventional and significant tomorrow, and thus provide a glimpse into the eventual future of HPC. The goal of the workshop is to present latest research in how hardware and software (yet) unconventional for HPC is or can be used to reach goals such as best performance per watt. UCHPC also covers according programming models, compiler techniques, and tools.
UCHPC is held in conjunction with Euro-Par 2013, August 26 – August 30, Aachen, Germany. More information,including the full call for papers, submission instructions and important dates: uchpc13.cs.tum.edu
Calling all software development innovators in general purpose GPU (GPGPU), data parallel and heterogeneous computing. On November 11-14, 2013 AMD will host the AMD 2013 Developer Summit in San Jose California. The AMD Developer Summit conference board has issued a call for presentation proposals, inviting creators of next-generation software to share research and development work through presentations based on the latest technical papers or reports.
The AMD Developer Summit will be a great venue for developers, academics and innovative entrepreneurs to network with others engaged in related work, collectively defining the future course of heterogeneous computing. And delivering a presentation offers you the perfect opportunity to advocate programming paradigms or gain support for industry standards.
The submission deadline is Mar. 15, 2013, and the submission website is available at: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ads2013
The International Conference on Multicore Software Engineering, Performance, and Tools (MUSEPAT) is a forum for researchers and practitioners that face the multicore and distributed software challenge, addressing the full software development life-cycle of concurrent systems – software specification and design, programing models and techniques, testing, analysis, and debugging. The conference welcomes original, previously unpublished regular, and industrial papers, as well as tool presentations.
Abstracts are due 5 March 2013 and full papers 12 March 2013. The symposium will be 19–20 August 2013 in Saint Petersburg, Russia. More information is available at http://eventos.fct.unl.pt/musepat2013.
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.
