                    FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS:

6th International Workshop on Multi/many-Core Computing Systems

      Sept. 7 or 8 (TBA) 2013, Edinburgh, Scotland, UK

       in conjunction with the 22nd Int. Conference on
  Parallel Architectures and Compilation Techniques (PACT-2013)



The pervasiveness of homogeneous and heterogeneous multi-core and
many-core processors, in a large spectrum of systems from embedded
and general-purpose to high-end computing systems, poses major
challenges to software industry. In general, there is no guarantee
that software developed for a particular architecture will be
executable (that is functional) on another architecture.
Furthermore, ensuring that the software preserves some aspects
of performance behavior (such as temporal or energy efficiency)
across different such architectures is an open research issue.

Therefore, this workshop focuses on language level, system software
and architectural solutions for performance portability
across different architectures and for automated performance tuning.

The topics of the MuCoCoS workshop include but are not limited to:

 * Performance measurement, modeling, analysis and tuning
 * Portable programming models, languages and compilation techniques
 * Run-time systems and hardware support mechanisms for auto-tuning
 * Tunable algorithms and data structures
 * Case studies highlighting performance portability and tuning.

As the sixth workshop in the series MuCoCoS 2008 (Barcelona, Spain),
MuCoCoS 2009 (Fukuoka, Japan), MuCoCoS 2010 (Krakow, Poland),
MuCoCoS 2011 (Seoul, Korea), and MuCoCoS 2012 (Salt Lake City, USA),
MuCoCoS 2013 will be held in Edinburgh, UK,
in conjunction with the 22nd International Conference on
Parallel Architectures and Compilation Techniques (PACT 2013).


The papers should be prepared using the IEEE format
(two-column, 10pt, LaTeX users please use style IEEEtran.cls),
and no longer than 10 pages. Submitted papers will be carefully
evaluated based on originality, significance to workshop topics,
technical soundness, and presentation quality.

Please submit your paper (as PDF, viewable by Adobe Reader v5.0
or higher, with all fonts embedded please) electronically using
the online submission system

Submission of the paper implies that, should the paper be accepted,
at least one of the authors will register and present the paper at
the workshop.

Accepted papers will be published in electronic form in
IEEE Xplore (confirmation pending).
They will also be included in the PACT USB proceedings.
We also plan to invite authors of the best MuCoCoS papers after
the workshop to submit their extended workshop papers to a special
issue of Computing Journal (Springer) (confirmation pending).
