            CALL FOR PAPERS

                1st Workshop on
      Runtime and Operating Systems
             for the Many-core Era 
                   (ROME 2013)

       August 26, 2013, Aachen, Germany

               held in conjunction with
Euro-Par 2013, August 26 - August 30, 2013
                   Aachen, Germany


Submission deadline: May 31, 2013

Since the beginning of the multicore era, parallel processing has become prevalent across the board. However, in order to continue a performance increase according to Moore's Law, a next step needs to be taken: away from common multicores towards innovative many-core architectures. Such systems, equipped with a significant higher amount of cores per chip than multicores, pose challenges in both hardware and software design. On the hardware side, complex on-chip networks, scratchpads and memory interfaces as well as cache-hierarchies, cache-coherence strategies and the building of coherency domains have to be taken into account.

However, the ROME workshop focuses on the software side because without complying system software, runtime and operating system support, all these new hardware facilities cannot be exploited. Hence, the new challenges in hardware/software co-design are to step beyond traditional approaches and to wage new programming models and OS designs in order to exploit the theoretically available performance as effectively as possible. 

The focus of this workshop stands in the tradition of a successful series of events hosted by the Many-core Applications Research Community (MARC). Although this workshop is not considered as a self-contained MARC symposium, the organizers and several members of the tentative program committee are part of the MARC community. Authors from all related disciplines are invited to submit unpublished papers regarding software for novel many-core hardware architectures.

- Operating system support for novel many-core architectures
- Many-core aware runtime support for large-scale applications
- Virtualization solutions to deal with hardware limitations
- Tools for performance analysis on many-core systems
- Dealing with legacy software on novel many-core architectures
- New approaches for leveraging on-die messaging facilities
- Experiences porting, running, or developing applications
- Traditional and new programming models for novel many-core hardware
- Bare-metal programming and system software
- Power-aware many-core computing

The workshop takes place on Monday, August 26, 2013. It is scheduled as half-day. Detailed program TBD. 

Paper Submission, Registration, and Publication
Workshop papers must not exceed ten single-spaced, single-column pages (LNCS style). On acceptance of the submission, at least one author is required to register for workshop attendance at Euro-Par 2013 and present the paper in the workshop session.
Upload your submission to our submission server in PDF format. It must not be simultaneously submitted to the main conference or any other publication outlet.

For the workshop, we will prepare hand-outs with the revised papers. These will be published after the conference in the workshop proceedings of Euro-Par 2013, part of the LNCS series of Springer.
