PMAM 2013 Call For Papers (final extended deadline: 18th November, 2012)

The 2013 International Workshop on Programming Models and Applications for
Multicores and Manycores will be jointly held with the PPoPP 2013 conference
in February 23-27, 2013, Shenzhen, China. Selected best papers of PMAM
2013 will be invited for publication in a special issue of the Elsevier
journal of Parallel Computing (ParCo).

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:

* programming models and systems for multicore, manycore, and clusters of
* multicore and manycore software engineering
* parallel and distributed algorithms on GPU and multicore clusters
* 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
