Dear Colleague

Please find below the call for papers for the Second Workshop on Hybrid
Multicore Computing to be held in conjunction with the International
Conference on High Performance Computing (HiPC) in Banglaore, India.


Second Workshop on Hybrid Multi-core Computing
Held in conjunction with HiPC 2011
Bangalore, December 18, 2011

The second Workshop on Hybrid Multi-core Computing will be held in
conjunction with the 18th International Conference on High Performance
Computing (HiPC) being held at Bangalore, India. The workshop will focus
on algorithmic, applied, and analytical issues in hybrid multi-core
computing. The workshop aims at bringing together researchers and
practitioners in the rapidly evolving area of hybrid multi-core
computing. Hybrid multi-core computing uses a mix of CPUs and special
purpose accelerators to arrive at highly efficient, practical, and
scalable solutions. This raises several important issues including the
mechanism(s) to execute concurrently on a hybrid computing platform.

The workshop will focus on issues emerging out of hybrid multi-core
computing. The workshop shall feature invited talk(s) and also
contributed research papers. Research papers addressing any of the
topics listed below, and possibly beyond, in connection to hybrid
multi-core computing are solicited. It is expected that papers are
original, correct, and are of high technical quality. Papers should not
be currently in submission at any workshop/conference/journal with a
published proceedings. The topics of interest include, but are not
limited to, the following.

* Hybrid computing algorithms and applications
* Case studies and benchmark suites for hybrid programs
* Programming models for hybrid multi-core computing
* Issues in hybrid multi-core computing such as load balancing,
synchronization * Scalability studies, auto-tuning, or frameworks for
hybrid programs
* Paradigms for hybrid multi-core computing
* Performance issues and models for hybrid multi-core computing
* Programming languages and tools for hybrid multi-core computing


The workshop seeks original, correct, and novel submissions of high
quality that are not currently under review at any other venue.
Submissions should not exceed eight (8) pages in the two column IEEE
conference format including references, tables, and all other material.
An appendix can be included but there is no guarantee that the appendix
shall also be read by the reviewers. Submissions that deviate
significantly from the above guidelines may not be considered. All
submitted papers shall be reviewed by at least three independent
reviewers before arriving at a decision. Submissions are
done through the Easychair URL:


* Submission deadline: September 30, 2011
* Acceptance notification: October 1, 2011
* Camera Ready deadline: November 1, 2011
* Workshop Date: Dec 18th, 2011
