The 2014 International Workshop on Programming Models and Applications for
Multicores and Manycores will be co-located with the PPoPP 2014 conference
in February 15-19, 2014, Orlando, Florida.

Rapid advancements in multicore and manycore chips have been a revolution
within chip manufacturing, almost eradicating single-core processors. From
high-end servers to mobile phones, multicore and manycore chips are
steadily entering every single aspect of information technology. However,
programming multicore and manycore architectures remains challenging
today. To fully utilize these chips, parallel programming models that
allow sequential programs and programs utilizing limited parallelism to
transition to architectures with massive parallelism, while maintaining
good performance and productive development, are urgently needed.

This workshop is dedicated primarily to gather researchers and
practitioners addressing the main challenges and share experiences in the
emerging multicore and manycore software engineering and distributed
programming paradigm. This workshop aims to provide a discussion forum for
people interested in programming environments, models, tools and
applications specifically designed for parallel multicore and manycore
hardware environments.

The program committee cordially invites any novel research ideas in (but
not limited to) the following topics:

programming models and systems for multicore, manycore, and clusters of
multicore and manycore software engineering
parallel and distributed algorithms on GPU and multicore clusters
parallel libraries and frameworks
performance analysis, efficiency and effectiveness
massively parallel processing on multicore/manycore systems and clusters
automated parallelization and compilation techniques
debugging and performance auto-tuning tools and techniques for
multicore/manycore applications
parallel algorithms, applications and benchmarks on multicore/manycore
runtime power/energy management on multicore/manycore systems and clusters
fault tolerance and resilience
