The importance of hardware accelerators (GPUs, FPGAs, Cell,...) is
increasing rapidly, especially in the computationally demanding
disciplines such as realistic 3D computer graphics and
high-performance scientific computing.  The use of these accelerators
for General-Purpose computing enables speedups of orders of magnitude
over optimized CPU implementations.  They have become powerful,
capable, and inexpensive coprocessors useful for a wide variety of

The aim of this workshop is to strongly encourage the exchange of
experiences and knowledge in novel solutions exploiting and defining
new trends in hardware accelerators, including hardware architecture,
software tools, and applications.

The authors of the papers selected for the workshop may be invited to
submit extended versions of their manuscripts to be considered for
publication in a special issue.

The Workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

•   Languages and Compilers for Hardware Accelerators
•   Libraries and Tools to Simplify the Programming of Hardware Accelerators
•   Manual and Automatic Optimization Techniques
•   Application Development Experience
•   Benchmarking of Hardware Accelerators
•   Modeling and Performance Prediction for Hardware Accelerators
•   Novel Accelerator Architectures

Accepted papers will be published in the Conference proceedings.
Submission format is available on the HPCS 2013 Conference web site at
http://hpcs2013.cisedu.info/.  Please submit a PDF copy of your full
manuscript by email to the Workshop organizers - Dr. Esam El-Araby
(ALY at cua.edu), Dr. Hoda Elsayed (helsayed at cs.bowiestate.edu), and Dr.
Vikram K. Narayana (vikram at gwu.edu).

If you have any questions about paper submission or the workshop,
please feel free to contact the workshop organizers.
