Call for Papers

The 6th IEEE International Workshop on Multicore and Multithreaded Architectures and Algorithms (M2A2 2014)
Paris, France, August 20-22, 2014

In conjunction with

16th IEEE International Conference on High Performance Computing and Communications (HPCC 2014)


Multicore systems are dominating the processor market ranging from embedded to high-performance systems. Currently some processors integrate more than ten cores and, as the node shrinks in future technology generations, it is expected that the number of cores will continue increasing in future manufactured systems. 
To take advantage of the high number of cores efficient load balancing and scheduling policies or strategies are required. In addition, it remains a challenge to identify and productively program applications for these systems with a resulting substantial performance improvement. 
On the other hand, the system designer must trade off performance versus power consumption, which is a major concern in current microprocessors. Therefore, current design must focus on new architectures or architectural mechanisms addressing this tradeoff. 
Finally, most real-time embedded applications are requiring high-performance computing and multicore and multithreaded processors are becoming the typical design choice.
The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum for engineers and scientists to address the resulting challenge and to present new ideas, applications, and experience on all aspects of multicore and multithreaded systems.
Authors are invited to submit high quality papers representing their original work in (but not limited to) the following topics targeting multicore multithreaded processors:
* Multicore and multithreaded architectures
* Power-aware multicore architectures and computing
* Embedded multicore real-time systems 
* Scheduling and load balancing
* Multicore programming 
* Parallel and distributed algorithms

Paper Submission and Publication
Submit original unpublished papers in PDF  format at the submission system: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=m2a22014. All submitted manuscripts will be reviewed at least by three expert reviewers. Submissions will be judged on originality, technical strength, quality of presentation, and relevance to the workshop scope. 
All accepted papers will be included in the HPCC-2014 workshop proceeding published by IEEE Computer Society (indexed by EI). The length of the camera-ready manuscripts will be limited to 8 pages in IEEE CS proceedings paper format. Authors of accepted papers, or at least one of them, are requested to register and present their work at the conference, otherwise their papers will not be published.
Distinguished papers accepted and presented in M2A2 2014, after further revisions, could be considered for publication in special issues of SCI indexed international journals.
