The 2012 International Workshop on Programming Models and Applications for
Multicores and Manycores will be co-located with the PPoPP 2012 conference
in New Orleans, Louisiana at 25th-29th February, 2012.

Rapid advancements in multicore and chip-level multi-threading
technologies open new challenges and make multicore systems a part of the
computing landscape. From high-end servers to mobile phones, multicores
and manycores are steadily entering every single aspect of the information

However most programmers are trained in sequential programming, yet most
existing parallel programming models are prone to errors such as data race
and deadlock. Therefore to fully utilise multicore and manycore hardware,
parallel programming models that allow easy transition of sequential
programs to parallel programs with good performance and enable development
of error-free codes are urgently needed.

This workshop is dedicated primarily to gather researchers and
practitioners addressing the main challenges and share experiences in the
emerging multicore and manycore software engineering and distributed
programming paradigm. This workshop aims to provide a discussion forum for
people interested in programming environments, models, tools and
applications specifically designed for parallel multicore and manycore
hardware environments.

The program committee cordially invites any novel research ideas in (but
not limited to) the following topics:

   * multicore and manycore programming models and systems
   * multicore and manycore software engineering
   * performance and utilisation metrics
   * performance analysis, efficiency and effectiveness
   * experiments of massively multicore / manycore systems and clusters *
automated parallelization and compilation techniques
   * debugging and runtime optimizations tools for multicore / manycore
   * parallel applications and benchmarks on multicore / manycore systems
* power saving metrics, protocols and benchmarks of multicore /
manycore systems and clusters
