Parallel Optimization using Multi and Many-core Computing (POMM 2014)
As part of The International Conference on High Performance Computing &
Simulation (HPCS 2014)
http://hpcs2014.cisedu.info or http://cisedu.us/rp/hpcs14
July 21 - July 25, 2014
The Savoia Hotel Regency
Bologna, Italy

Submission Deadline: March 25, 2014
Submissions could be for full papers, short papers, poster papers, or

Plenty of hard problems in a wide range of areas including engineering
design, telecommunications, logistics, biology, etc., have been modeled and
tackled successfully with optimization approaches. These approaches fall
into two major categories: meta-heuristics (evolutionary algorithms,
particle swarm, ant or bee colonies, simulated annealing, Tabu search,
etc.) and exact methods (Branch-and-X, dynamic programming, etc.).

Nowadays, optimization problems become increasingly large and complex,
forcing the use of parallel computing for their efficient and effective
resolution. On the other hand, multi and many-core computing (e.g. GPU,
FPGA) has recently undergone a significant evolution with the emergence of
new high performance computing environments. Indeed, multi and many-core
computing are provided in laptops, high performance workstations, clusters,
grids, and clouds.

The design and implementation of parallel optimization methods raise
several issues related to the characteristics of these methods and those of
the new hardware execution environments at the same time. This workshop
seeks to provide an opportunity for the researchers to present their
original contributions on the joint use of advanced (discrete or
continuous, single or multi-objective, static or dynamic, deterministic or
stochastic, hybrid) optimization methods and distributed and/or parallel
multi/many-core computing, and any related issues.

The POMM Workshop topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the

   - Parallel models for optimization methods.
   - Parallel mechanisms for hybridization of optimization methods.
   - Redesign of parallel real or simulation-based optimization algorithms.
   - Implementation issues of parallel optimization algorithms.
   - Parallel-aware frameworks for parallel optimization techniques.
   - Computational studies reporting results for hard and challenging
   optimization problems.
   - Issues and novel approaches and experiments in parallel solving
   real-world applications.
   - Theory and performance metrics for parallel optimization.


You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above
and other topics related to Parallel Computing for Simulation and
Optimization. Submitted papers must not have been published or
simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Submission should include a cover page
with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and
email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and
include up to 6 keywords from the above list of topics and an abstract of
no more than 400 words. The full manuscript should be at most 8 pages using
the two-column IEEE format. Additional pages will be charged additional
fee. Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster papers and posters (please refer
to http://hpcs2014.cisedu.info/home/posters for the posters submission
details) will also be accepted for submission. In case of multiple authors,
an indication of which author is responsible for correspondence must be
indicated. Please include page numbers on all submissions to make it easier
for reviewers to provide helpful comments.

Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript to the Workshop submission site
at https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=pomm2014. Acknowledgement
will be sent within 48 hours of submission.

Only PDF files will be accepted. Each paper will receive a minimum of three
reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance,
contributions, technical clarity and presentation. Submission implies the
willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the
paper, if accepted. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their
papers will be registered and presented at the workshop.


Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings.
Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on
the HPCS 2014 web site. It is our intent to have the proceedings formally
published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of the
conference. The proceedings are to be published as ISBN proceedings by the
IEEE and will be available online through IEEE Digital Library and indexed
by major indexing services accordingly (e.g., EI indexing).

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