                 The Third International Workshop on
               Accelerators and Hybrid Exascale Systems
                           (ASHES 2013)

                  held in conjunction with the
                       27th International
      Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium (IPDPS 2013)

                  Boston, USA, May 20th, 2013


As we look beyond the petascale era, accelerators such as Graphics Processing
Units (GPUs) and FPGAs, as well as upcoming integrated hybrid processing cores,
are expected to play a preeminent role in architecting the largest systems in
the world. While there is significant interest in these architectures, much of
this interest is an artifact of the hype associated with them. This workshop
focuses on understanding the implications of accelerators on the architectures
and programming environments of future systems. It seeks to ground accelerator
research through studies of application kernels or whole applications on such
systems, as well as tools and libraries that improve the performance or
productivity of applications trying to use these systems.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners
who are involved in application studies for accelerators and other hybrid
systems, to learn the opportunities and challenges in future design trends for
HPC applications and systems.

We are soliciting contributions in areas including but not limited to:

 * Characterizing strategies for implementing and optimizing HPC applications
   for accelerators.

 * Techniques for optimizing kernels for execution on GPUs and future
   hybrid platforms.

 * Modeling of applications running on accelerators and hybrid HPC systems.

 * Implication of workload characterization in hybrid HPC systems.

 * Benchmarking and performance evaluation for accelerator units.

 * Tools and techniques to assist application development for accelerators and
   hybrid processors.

 * System software techniques to abstract application domain-specific
   functionalities for accelerators.

Submitted manuscripts may not exceed 10 single-spaced double-column pages using
10-point size font on 8.5x11 inch pages (IEEE conference style), including
figures, tables, and references. See the style templates for details.

 * Word:  http://www.ipdps.org/templates/IEEECS_CPS_8.5x11x2.zip

Submission site: https://www.easychair.org/account/signin.cgi?conf=ashes2013	

Submissions will be judged based on relevance, significance, originality,
correctness and clarity.

The best papers of AsHES 2012 will be included in a Special
Issue on Applications for the Heterogeneous Computing Era of
the International Journal of High Performance Computing
Applications, edited by Jiayuan Meng and Toshio ENDO.

 * Submission Deadline:      January  11th,  2013
 * Author Notification:      February 18th,  2013
 * Camera-ready Deadline:    February 28th,  2013
