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



ALCHEMY Workshop 2017
Held in conjunction with the International Conference on Computational Science (ICCS 2017)
Zürich, Switzerland, 12-14 June 2017


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.


Call for papers

  As the future aims toward increasing parallelism and heterogeneity of
systems to tackle the so-called power-wall while permitting a roadmap
of increased performance, several challenges rise for programming such
systems. The ALCHEMY workshop goal is to show some of these relevant
challenges and finding ways to tackle them, while permitting programmers
to focus on important part of application designs and letting compilers
or runtime optimization do most of the work toward good performance.


The ALCHEMY workshop is the Many-core track of ICCS. It is also a good
place of exchange between the traditional HPC domain of research and
all the emerging HPES (High Performance Embedded Systems) domain, since
the programming issues are mostly the same, with a relatively high
cost of communication and the difficulty to program hundreds of cores
often under performance and power usage constraints.

Original high quality submission are encouraged on all topics related to
many-core programming issues including (but not limited to):

Topics

    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)

Important dates

Submission deadline : February 15, 2017


Submission

The manuscripts of up to 10 pages, written in English and formatted according to the EasyChair templates,
should be submitted electronically. Papers must be based on unpublished original work and must be submitted
to ICCS only.
Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper.

The accepted papers for full-length paper will be published alongside with the ICCS proceedings in Procedia Computer Science.


Please use the ICCS submission system hosted by EasyChair and select the
Architecture, Languages, Compilation and Hardware support for Emerging ManYcore systems track.

During submission, you may select either a “Full Paper” or a “Abstract Only” publication. By default, it would be
an oral presentation. If you prefer to present a poster, please check the “Poster Presentation” option in the submission page.
