2nd Call-for-Papers: EuroPar Workshop on Highly Parallel Processing on a CHIP (HPPC)


Workshop on Highly Parallel Processing on a Chip (HPPC)

August 28, 2007, IRISA, Rennes, France, http://www.hppc-workshop.org/

to be held in conjunction with the 13th International European
Conference on Parallel and Distributed Computing (Euro-Par), August
28-31, 2007, IRISA, Rennes, France.


With a number of both general and special purpose multi-core
processors already on the market, it is foreseeable that new designs
with a substantial number of processing cores will emerge to meet
demands for extremely high performance, dependability, and
controllable power consumption in mobile and embedded devices, and in
response to the convergence of communication-, media- and compute
devices. These developments raise new, architectural and
methodological challenges, like:

* Design of multi-core architectures that support powerful, high-level
  programming models, and enables the full performance to be allocated
  to arbitrary and dynamically changing workloads ranging from a
  single computational problem to multiple dependent or independent

* Design of architectures capable of dealing with/hiding the latency
  of the memory system, supporting simultaneous exploitation of
  multiple levels of parallelism, and providing high
  intercommunication bandwidth.

* Design of power efficient architectures with dynamic control of
  power consumption.

* Design of architecture and software solutions to deal with limited
  off-chip memory and communication bandwidth.

* Development of (parallel) programming paradigms, languages,
  libraries, and support tools for efficient and manageable
  exploitation of highly parallel multi-core architectures.

The workshop on Highly Parallel Processing on a Chip is dedicated to
all aspects of existing and emerging/envisaged multi-core processors
with a significant amount of parallelism. Particular emphasis will be
on the interaction between hardware (homogeneous, heterogeneous),
architecture (processors, on-chip networks, cache and memory system),
programming model and languages, and algorithms as well as
applications in need of or benefitting from significant amounts of
single-chip parallelism. The workshop will be conducted in an informal
atmosphere, stressing interaction and discussion between presenters
and audience.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to

- hardware techniques (e.g. power saving, clocking, fault-tolerance)
- processor core architectures (homogeneous and heterogeneous)
- on-chip memory and cache (or cache-less) organization, and interconnects
- off-chip memory and I/O solutions, and multi-core coupling
- special purpose processors (accelerators)
- programming models (e.g. PRAM, BSP, Transactional Memory), languages, and
tware libraries
- implementation techniques (e.g. multi-threading, work-stealing)
- support and performance tools, performance evaluation
- parallel algorithms and applications

for/on highly parallel multi-core systems.


Authors are encouraged to submit original, unpublished research or
overviews addressing issues in the design and application of highly
parallel multi-core processors as outlined above. Papers should be
limited to 10 pages, and typeset in the Springer LNCS style (for
details, see www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html). Accepted papers
are expected to be presented at the workshop, and will be published in
revised form in a special Euro-Par Workshop Volume in the Lecture
Notes in Computer Science series AFTER the Euro-Par conference.
