First International Workshop on Extreme Scale Programming Models and

In conjunction with International Conference for High Performance
Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis (SC 2015)
<http://sc15.supercomputing.org/>, At Austin Convention Center
<http://sc15.supercomputing.org/>, Texas, USA, Sunday, November 15th, 2015.

Held in cooperation with ACM SIGHPC.


Next generation architectures and systems being deployed are characterized
by high concurrency, low memory per-core, and multi-levels of hierarchy and
heterogeneity. These characteristics bring out new challenges in energy
efficiency, fault-tolerance and scalability. It is commonly believed that
software has the biggest share of the responsibility to tackle these
challenges. In other words, this responsibility is delegated to the next
generation programming models and their associated middleware/runtimes.
This workshop focuses on different aspects of programming models such as
Task-based parallelism (X10, OCR, Habanero, Legion, Charm++, HPX), PGAS
(OpenSHMEM, UPC, CAF, Chapel, etc.), Directive-based languages (OpenMP,
OpenACC), Accelerator programming (CUDA, OpenCL), Hybrid MPI+X, etc. It
also focuses on their associated middleware (unified runtimes,
interoperability for hybrid programming, tight integration of MPI+X,
support for accelerators) for next generation systems and architectures.
The objective of ESPM2 workshop is to serve as a forum that brings together
researchers from academia and industry to share knowledge and their
experience, on working in the areas of programming models, runtime systems,
compilation and languages, and application developers.

The First ESPM2 workshop, to be held as a full-day meeting with the
Supercomputing (SC'2015) conference in Austin, Texas, will serve as an
event for discussion in the areas of programming models and runtimes,
language design, compilers, and application development. It will provide a
timely meeting for scientists and engineers to present the latest ideas and
findings in these rapidly evolving areas. The workshop will particularly
focus on innovative approaches in the areas of emerging programming models
for large-scale parallel systems and many-core architectures. Topics of
interest for the ESPM2 workshop include (but are not limited to):

   - New programming models, languages and constructs for exploiting high
   concurrency and heterogeneity
   - Experience with and improvements for existing parallel languages and
   run-time environments such as:

             o  MPI
             o   PGAS (UPC, OpenSHMEM, Chapel, CAF...)
             o   Directive-based programming (OpenMP, OpenACC..)
             o   Asynchronous Task-based models (X10, OCR, Habanero,
Legion, Charm++, HPX ) and
             o   Hybrid MPI+X models

   - Parallel compilers, programming tools, and environments
   - Software and system support for extreme scalability including fault
   - Programming environments for heterogeneous multi-core systems and
   accelerators such as ARM, GPUs, FPGAs, MICs and DSPs

Papers should present original research and should provide sufficient
background material to make them accessible to the broader community.
