Many-core architectures such as mobile SOCs or GPGPUs are quickly becoming the
norm in computing devices and consumer electronics. The community sees this
development as an essential step in sustaining the exponential growth of
performance in an energy efficient way, but at present there is no consensus
on how software can make best use of it. Developing parallel applications
often starts with an existing sequential implementation. A key problem is how
to discover the parallelism potentially available and then convert it into a
form that can be exploited. Once we have a parallel implementation, its
performance and energy efficiency largely depend on how it is mapped to the
available hardware. Given that hardware is increasingly diverse and
heterogeneous, and that in the era of dark silicon energy efficiency affects
the availability of hardware, how can this re-mapping be best achieved.
Solutions to these two problems form the core topic of COSMIC'15. Research
papers on innovative techniques and experience papers on insights obtained by
experimenting with real-world systems and applications are both welcome.

This workshop aims at examining different solutions to these problems and
includes (but is not limited to):

- programming languages and models
- compilers and tools
- runtime systems
- operating systems
- binary translation
- combinations of the above

for homogeneous, heterogeneous multi-core and many-core based systems.

Regular research papers and work-in-progress short papers are welcome.
