Dear Sir/Madam,

I send you this email to spread that we have extended the deadline of our
workshop "Complex Problems over High Performance Computing Architectures"
untill 10 January.
The link of the workshop is: http://www.cister.isep.ipp.pt/arcs2015/cphpca/

I have pasted the Call for Papers at bottom.

Please, let me know if you have received this email and the information
related properly.

Best regards.

*1st Workshop on Complex Problems over High Performance Computing
Architectures (CPHPCA’15)*

Focus topic “High Performance Computing Programming” in conjunction with ARCS
2015. <http://www.cister.isep.ipp.pt/arcs2015/>

Porto, Portugal, March 24th – 27th, 2015

 *Call for Papers *


The main proposal of CPHPCA is to provide a scenario to discuss how
problems with important challenges and high computational requirements can
be mapped over current and upcoming high performance architectures. CPHPCA
will be a part (in conjunction) of the 28th GI/ITG International Conference
on Architecture of Computing Systems (ARCS'15).

The importance of high performance computing is continually rising and has
emerged as one of the foremost fields of research. This brings up many
issues, in form of new network topologies and technologies (fast accessing
data), new low-consumption architectures, new programming models, etc. It
forces us to adapt our codes or create new ones to take advantages of the
latest computational features.

This workshop focuses on the challenges of how to adapt/implement complex
and big problems on platforms composed by a high number of cores, dealing
with communication, programming, heterogeneous architectures, load
balancing, benchmarking, etc. Today, the difficulty of the problems to be
implemented is increasing considerably, large data and computational
requirements, dynamic behavior, numerical simulations, automatic models,
are just a few examples of this kind of problems. Our target is to bridge
the gap between the theory of complex problems (computational fluid
dynamics, bioinformatics, lineal algebra, big data computing, ...) and high
performance computing platforms by proposing advances in programming.


Authors are invited to submit manuscripts that present original and
unpublished research in all areas related with programming of complex
problems via parallel and distributed processing. Works focusing on
emerging architectures and big computing challenges are specially welcome.

Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:

·     New strategies to improve performance.

·     Code adapting to take advantages of lastest features.

·     Numerical modeling and numerical accuracy analysis for complex

·     Communication, synchronization, load balancing.

·     Benchmarking, performance and scalability of algorithms, data
structures, tools, programming models ...

·     Analysis and proposing of new programming models.

·     Adaptive self-tuning computing systems.

·     High level abstraction tools ...

*Keynote speakers*

*Manuel Ujaldón (CUDA Fellow): Emerging trends in GPU computing*

 Since its inception in early 2007, CUDA has transformed the way we
understand High Performance Computing through a constant process of
innovations and architectural enhancements. Sustainable performance has
been based on three basic pillars: Scalable number of cores, memory access
and low power. In this talk, we will review these three aspects and analyze
what the future will bring us from commercial platforms: Maxwell for cores,
Pascal for memory and Tegra for low power devices. The final part will
unveil its preliminary potential from the programming perspective of HPC

*Guidelines for submission of contributions to workshops:*

ARCS 2015 Workshop Proceedings will be published through VDE Verlag on CD
