                    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related disciplines are invited to submit unpublished papers regarding 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.
