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

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

                 Shanghai, China, May, 2012


As we look beyond the petascale era, accelerators and other heterogeneous
parallel systems such as Graphics Processing Units (GPUs), FPGAs, and upcoming
integrated heterogenous 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 heterogeneous
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
  heterogeneous platforms.

 * Modeling of applications running on heterogeneous HPC systems.

 * Implication of workload characterization in heterogeneous design issues.

 * Benchmarking and performance evaluation for accelerator units.

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

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

Submitted manuscripts may not exceed 8 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.
