Call for papers
International Workshop on Software Engineering Methods for Parallel and
High Performance Applications
(SEM4HPC 2016)
May 31, 2016, Kyoto, Japan
Co-located with HPDC'16

Important Dates
- Paper Submission Deadline: February 13, 2016
- Author Notification: March 12, 2016
- Camera-Ready Material: March 27, 2016

Scope of the workshop includes the use of parallel computing beyond
traditional scientific computing and using them to develop enterprise and
industrial applications. Compared to the traditional sequential computing
paradigm, the software development, analysis and migration tools for
parallel and high performance applications are far less matured for the IT
industry to make a shift towards the new computing paradigm

Goal of the workshop is to share and contribute in the area of software
engineering methods for parallel and high performance computing. In
particular, the workshop will focus on exploring new frameworks,
programming models, tools and techniques for building, testing and
deploying parallel applications for high performance computing on leading
edge hardware such as GPUs, recently emergent accelerators (e.g., Xeon
Phi), and integrated multi-core CPU-GPU systems.

Topics of Interest

You are invited to participate and submit your contributions to the SEM4HPC
workshop. The areas of interest include (but will not be limited to) the
following topics:
- Programming  models, frameworks, and languages for heterogeneous parallel
- Algorithms, models, and tools for energy-efficient computing on
heterogeneous parallel platforms
- Tools for debugging, performance analysis, and optimizing programs for
heterogeneous parallel platforms
- Techniques for optimizing kernels for execution on GPGPU, Intel Xeon Phi,
and future heterogeneous platforms
- Large scale data processing and data mining using parallel platforms
- Innovative applications and software development case studies on building
parallel enterprise applications
- Software Productivity Tools for developing parallel applications as well
as discovering and understanding parallelism
- Compiler optimizations and tuning heterogeneous parallel platform
- Software development productivity for parallel application development
- Design patterns, programming abstractions for heterogeneous systems
- Process Model for parallel application development
- Program refactoring/transformation for heterogeneous platform
