Seventh Workshop on Programmability Issues for Heterogeneous Multicores
Submission Deadline: October 18, 2013

Held in conjunction with the 9th International Conference on High-Performance
and Embedded Architectures and Compilers (HiPEAC)
Vienna, Austria, January 22, 2014
Workshop website:http://multiprog.ac.upc.edu/

Goal of the Workshop
Computer manufacturers have already embarked on the multi-core roadmap, promising to add
more and more cores/hardware threads on a chip: many-cores are on the horizon. This shift
to an increasing number of cores and heterogeneous architectures has placed new burdens
on the programming community. Until now, software has been developed with a single
processor in mind and it needs to be parallelized and optimized for accelerators such
as GPUs to take advantage of the new breed of multi-/many-core computers. As a result,
progress in how to easily harness the computing power of multi-core architectures is in
great demand.

The seventh edition of the MULTIPROG workshop aims to bring together, and cause fruitful
interaction between, researchers interested in programming models and their implementation
and in computer architecture, with special emphases on heterogeneous architectures. A wide
spectrum of issues are central themes for this workshop such as what the future programming
models should look like to accelerate software productivity, how compilers, run-times and
architectures should support these new programming models, innovative algorithm and data
structure development, and heterogeneous embedded, accelerated systems.

MULTIPROG is intended for quick publication of early results, work-in-progress, etc, and
is not intended to prevent later publication of extended papers. We will prioritize papers
addressing cross-cutting issues and that provide thought-provoking insights into the main
themes. Informal proceedings with accepted papers will be made available at the workshop.

Topics of interest
Papers are sought on topics including, but not limited to:
      * Multi-core architectures
            o Architectural support for compilers/programming models
	   o Processor (core) architecture and accelerators, in particular GPUs
            o Memory system architecture
            o Performance, power, temperature, and reliability issues
      * Heterogeneous computing
	  o Algorithms and data structures for heterogeneous systems
	  o Applications for heterogeneous computing and real-time graphics
      * Programming models for multi-core architectures
            o Language extensions
            o Run-time systems
            o Compiler optimizations and techniques
            o Tools for discovering and understanding parallelism
      * Benchmarking of multi-/many-core architectures
            o Tools for understanding performance and debugging
	   o Case studies and performance evaluation
