                The Second International Workshop on
              Accelerators and Hybrid Exascale Systems
                          (ASHES 2012)

                 held in conjunction with the
                      26th International
     Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium (IPDPS 2012)

                 Shanghai, China, May 25th, 2012


As we look beyond the petascale era, accelerators such as Graphics Processing
Units (GPUs) and FPGAs, as well as upcoming integrated hybrid processing cores,
are expected to play a preeminent role in architecting the largest systems in
the world. While there is significant interest in these architectures, much of
this interest is an artifact of the hype associated with them. This workshop
focuses on understanding the implications of accelerators on the architectures
and programming environments of future systems. It seeks to ground accelerator
research through studies of application kernels or whole applications on such
systems, as well as tools and libraries that improve the performance or
productivity of applications trying to use these systems.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners
who are involved in application studies for accelerators and other hybrid
systems, to learn the opportunities and challenges in future design trends for
HPC applications and systems.

We are soliciting contributions in areas including but not limited to:

 * Characterizing strategies for implementing and optimizing HPC applications
  for accelerators.

 * Techniques for optimizing kernels for execution on GPUs and future
  hybrid platforms.

 * Modeling of applications running on accelerators and hybrid HPC systems.

 * Implication of workload characterization in hybrid design issues.

 * Benchmarking and performance evaluation for accelerator units.

 * Tools and techniques to assist application development for accelerators and
  hybrid processors.

 * System software techniques to abstract application domain-specific
  functionalities for accelerators.

Submitted manuscripts may not exceed 10 single-spaced double-column pages using
10-point size font on 8.5x11 inch pages (IEEE conference style), including
figures, tables, and references. See the style templates for details.

Submissions will be judged based on relevance, significance, originality,
correctness and clarity.

The best papers of AsHES 2012 will be included in a Special
Issue on Applications for the Heterogeneous Computing Era of
the International Journal of High Performance Computing
Applications, edited by Pavan Balaji and Satoshi Matsuoka.
