We apologize if you receive multiple copies of this Call For Papers!

GPUB 2015 - Workshop on GPU Supercomputing and Beyond - Application Performance Portability

In conjunction with ICS 2015, 29th International Conference on Supercomputing,
June 8 - 11, 2015, Newport Beach, California, http://www.ics-conference.org/

Many of today's top supercomputers are built with CPU+GPU nodes. As we move towards
exascale, supercomputer nodes are becoming even more heterogeneous in terms of the types
of processors, memories and storage used. The current practice of rewriting applications
for each new node type is too costly and time consuming. Current industry approaches such
as OpenMP and OpenACC address some but not all challenges, such as algorithm variations.
This workshop aims to provide a forum for researchers in applications, algorithms,
languages, compilers, runtimes, and architecture to forge a vision for programming systems
that will allow developers to write and maintain a single code base that achieves high
performance on many of the diverse node types.

GPUB 2015 will be a half day workshop with invited talks and paper presentations.

* Call For Papers

Position papers of up to five pages in ACM 2-column format are solicited on topics
including the following:

- Insights on performance portability challenges in heterogeneous computing
- Practical programming systems for application performance portability
- Algorithm strategies in building performance portable applications
- Evaluation of programming systems that support performance portability

* Important Dates

- Paper submission deadline: April 30, 2015
- Notification of acceptance: May 15, 2015
- Workshop date: June 8 - 11, 2015
