Call for Papers


EASC2014 - Exascale Applications and Software Conference 2014



April 2-4, 2014

Stockholm, Sweden


Exascale computing power will likely be reached in the next decade. While
the precise system architectures are still evolving, one can safely assume
that they will be largely based on deep hierarchies of multicore CPUs with
similarly-deep memory hierarchies, potentially also supported by
accelerators. The challenge of designing, implementing, monitoring existing
and new applications running efficiently at large scale on these platforms
involves application, numerical library, programming, development
environment developers.

The aim* *of this conference is to bring together all the developers and
researchers involved in solving the software challenges of the exascale
era. The conference focuses on issues of applications for exascale and the
associated tools, software programming models and libraries.

Topics of interest (but are not limited to)


* Design, implementation and optimization of applications for exascale

* Large-scale simulations on petascale supercomputers

* Implementation of disruptive algorithms in applications

* Implementation of energy-efficient algorithms in applications

* Performance monitoring tools

* Debuggers and correctness checkers

* Auto-tuning frameworks

* Run-time systems

* Parallel communication libraries

* Parallel numerical libraries

* Porting and optimization of application/numerical libraries on hybrid

* Parallel pre- and post-processing tools

Paper Submission and Publication


Authors are invited to submit original research and experience in all areas
associated with developing applications for exascale and the associated
tools, software programming models and libraries. They are invited to
submit original manuscripts in English structured as technical papers not
exceeding 8 letter size (8.5x11) pages including figures, tables, and
references using the IEEE format for conference proceedings. Reference
style files are available at <
All manuscripts will be reviewed and judged on correctness, originality,
technical strength, and significance, quality of presentation, and interest
and relevance to the workshop attendees. Submitted papers must represent
original unpublished research that is not currently under review for any
other conference or journal. At least one author of an accepted paper must
register for and attend the conference. Papers should be submitted
electronically at: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=easc2014.

Important Dates


* Paper submission: January 12, 2014

* Acceptance notification: February 16, 2014

* Final papers due: March 23, 2014
