[Sincere apologies to all for the duplicate emails on this CFP.]

I, Udeepta Bordoloi (Udeepta.Bordoloi at amd.com<mailto:Udeepta.Bordoloi at amd.com>), as one of the chairs for the HPC track of the AMD Fusion Developer Summit, would like to invite you and your colleagues to submit a presentation proposal to this event.  Partly due to the lack of specificity in the previous call for submissions with respect to the types of submissions that the summit is interested in, we have re-issued the call for submissions below and have extended the submission deadline to Friday, February 25, 2011.

We would like to clarify that it is not a requirement to show results on AMD Fusion hardware. We invite all papers that demonstrate progress towards using AMD CPUs, GPUs and/or Fusion APUs. For example, work related to unified memory access between CPU and GPU, and/or unified and portable programming models (e.g., OpenCL) are of interest. Papers based on other software/hardware will be considered if they are in the context of moving towards OpenCL and Fusion-like systems.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions at Udeepta.Bordoloi at amd.com<mailto:Udeepta.Bordoloi at amd.com>.

If you need AMD GPUs to move your work towards OpenCL/AMD, please send me a note with a brief summary of your plan and I will forward your request to the right folks at AMD.
