  International Workshop on Enhancing Parallel Scientific Applications
  with Accelerated HPC (ESAA 2014)

    to be held as part of EuroMPI/ASIA 2014
    <http://xc0.r.mailjet.com/redirect/z8gdhhqfvm1m4ybfq21spp/www.eurompi2014.org/> Kioto,
    Japan, September 9-12, 2014


Since 2011, the most powerful supercomputers systems ranked in the 
Top500 list are hybrid systems composed of thousands of nodes that 
includes CPUs and accelerators, as Xeon Phi and GPUs. Programming and 
deploying applications on those systems is still a challenging work, due 
to the complexity of the system and the need to mix several programming 
interfaces (MPI, CUDA, Intel Xeon Phi) in the same application.

This Workshop is aimed to explore the state of the art of developing 
applications in accelerated massive HPC architectures, including 
practical issues of hybrid usage models with MPI, OpenMP, and other 
accelerators programming models. The idea is to publish novel work on 
the use of available programming interfaces (MPI, CUDA, Intel Xeon Phi) 
and tools for code development, application performance optimizations, 
application deployment on accelerated systems, as well as the advantages 
and limitations of accelerated HPC systems. Experiences with real-world 
applications, including scientific computing, numerical simulations, 
healthcare, energy, data-analysis, etc. are also encouraged.


Areas of interest of the workshop include, but are not limited to:

  * Tools, libraries, and environments for accelerators.
  * Hybrid and heterogeneous programming with MPI and accelerators.
  * Performance evaluation scientific applications based on accelerators.
  * Automatic performance tuning of scientific applications with
  * Integrating accelerators on existing HPC middlewares.
  * Run-times for accelerators.
  * Energy efficient HPC solutions based on accelerators.
  * Storage cache solutions based on SSD accelerators.
  * Parallel data analysis for MPI and SSD.
  * Real-world scientific and engineering applications using accelerated
  * Future trends and prospects for accelerated HPC.


Extended versions of distinguished selected papers accepted and 
presented in ESAA 2014, after further revisions, will be published in a 
special issue of the International Journal of Computers & Electrical

Contributors are invited to submit a full paper as a PDF document not 
exceeding 6 pages in English. The title page should contain an abstract 
of at most 100 words and five specific, topical keywords. The paper must 
be formatted according to double-column ACM ICPS proceedings style. The 
usage of LaTeX for preparation of the contribution as well as the 
submission in camera ready format is strongly recommended. Style files 
can be found at www.acm.org/publications/icps-instructions/ 

All contributions will be fully peer reviewed by the program committee.
