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

Focus topic “High Performance Computing Programming”

in conjunction with *ARCS 2015, *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.

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unpublished research in all areas related with programming of complex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 for complex problems.

·     Communication, synchronization, load balancing.

·     Benchmarking, performance and numerical accuracy analysis.

·     Scalability of algorithms and data structures.

·     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 and new
CUDA features*

 After a decade being used as hardware accelerators, GPUs constitute
nowadays a solid alternative for high performance computing at an
affordable cost. Increasing volumes of data managed by large-scale
applications make GPUs very attractive for scientific computing, deploying
SIMD parallelism in an unprecedented way.

This talk will review current achievements of many-core GPUs, recent and
future hardware enhancements, and emerging challenges to leverage GPUs as
accelerators within general-purpose exascale computing. Examples and case
studies will be given of software features (dynamic parallelism, unified
memory), hardware issues (Hyper-Q, 3D-DRAM) and disruptive low-power
devices (Tegra, Jetson and Denver from Nvidia).
