  11th International Workshop on Algorithms, Models and Tools
       for Parallel Computing on Heterogeneous Platforms


      August 26 or 27, 2012, Aachen, Germany
         in conjunction with EuroPar 2013

  * Submission of manuscripts:          Friday,    May 31, 2013
  * Notification of acceptance:         Monday,    July  8, 2013
  * Deadline for final version:         Thursday,  October  3, 2013
  * Date of workshop:                   Mon.-Tue., August 26 or 27, 2013


Heterogeneity  is  emerging  as  one  of the  most  profound  and  challenging
characteristics of today's parallel environments.  From the macro level, where
networks of distributed  computers composed by diverse  node architectures are
interconnected with  potentially heterogeneous  networks, to the  micro level,
where  deeper memory  hierarchies  and various  accelerator architectures  are
increasingly common,  the impact  of heterogeneity on  all computing  tasks is
increasing rapidly. Traditional  parallel algorithms, programming environments
and  tools, designed  for  legacy homogeneous  multiprocessors,  will at  best
achieve a small fraction of the  efficiency and the potential performance that
we should expect from parallel  computing in tomorrow's highly diversified and
mixed  environments.   New  ideas,  innovative  algorithms,   and  specialized
programming environments and tools are needed to efficiently use these new and
multifarious parallel  architectures. The workshop  is intended to be  a forum
for  researchers  working on  algorithms,  programming  languages, tools,  and
theoretical  models aimed  at  efficiently solving  problems on  heterogeneous

The topics to be covered include but are not limited to:

  * Heterogeneous parallel programming paradigms and models
  * Languages, libraries, and interfaces for different heterogeneous 
    parallel programming models
  * Performance models and their integration into the design of efficient 
    parallel algorithms for heterogeneous platforms
  * Parallel algorithms for heterogeneous and/or hierarchical multi-core systems
  * Parallel algorithms for efficient problem solving on heterogeneous platforms 
    (numerical linear algebra, nonlinear systems, fast transforms, 
    computational biology, data mining, multimedia, etc.)
  * Software engineering for heterogeneous parallel systems
  * Applications on heterogeneous platforms
  * Integration of parallel and distributed computing on heterogeneous platforms
  * Experience of porting parallel software from supercomputers to 
    heterogeneous platforms
  * Fault tolerance of parallel computations on heterogeneous platforms
  * Algorithms, models and tools for grid, desktop grid, cloud, 
    and green computing

Authors are encouraged to submit original, unpublished research or overviews
on Algorithms, Models and Tools for Parallel Computing on Heterogeneous
Platforms, namely addressing the topics referred above.
