Architecture, Languages, Compilation and Hardware support for Emerging ManYcore systems


ALCHEMY Workshop 2016
Held in conjunction with the International Conference on Computational Science (ICCS 2016)
San Diego, California, USA, 6-8 June 2016

   The International Conference on Computational Science is an annual
    conference that brings together researchers and scientists from mathematics
    and computer science as basic computing disciplines, researchers from various
    application areas who are pioneering computational methods in sciences such
    as physics, chemistry, life sciences, and engineering, as well as in arts and
    humanitarian fields, to discuss problems and solutions in the area, to identify new
    issues, and to shape future directions for research.

Massively parallel processors have entered high performance computing
    architectures, as well as embedded systems. In this
    context, developers of parallel applications, including heavy
    simulations and scientific calculations will undoubtedly have to cope
    with many-core processors at the early design steps.

   In the past sessions of the Alchemy workshop, held together with
    the ICCS meeting, we have presented significant contributions on the
    design of many-core processors, both in the hardware and the software
    programming environment sides, as well as some industrial-grade
    application case studies. In this 2016 session, we seek academic
    and industrial works that contribute to the design and the
    programmability of many-core processors.


    Topics include, but are not limited to:
    * Programming models and languages for many-cores
    * Compilers for programming languages
    * Runtime generation for parallel programming on manycores
    * Architecture support for massive parallelism management
    * Enhanced communications for CMP/manycores
    * Shared memory, data consistency models and protocols
    * New operating systems, or dedicated OS
    * Security, crypto systems for manycores
    * User feedback on existing manycore architectures
      (experiments with Adapteva Epiphany, Intel Phi, Kalray MPPA, ST
    STHorm, Tilera Gx, TSAR..etc)
    * Many-core integration within HPC systems (micro-servers)


 This yea
Procedia Computer Science
r, there will be two formats for the presentation at the
    workshop. The usual full-length paper is 10 pages according to the ICCS
    format, and the short-paper format well fitted for works in progress,
    with a maximum of 2 pages. The accepted papers for full-length paper
    will be published alongside with the ICCS proceedings in Procedia
    Computer Science
, whereas the short-papers will be presentation and
    poster only at the conference (with proceedings and presentations
    available from the workshop website).

 The manuscripts of up to 10 pages, written in English and formatted according to
    the EasyChair templates, should be submitted electronically.
    Templates are available for download in the Easychair right-hand-side menu
    in a “New submission” mode.
