Call for Papers

Hardware-software codesign involves the concurrent design of hardware and
software components of complex computer systems, whereby application
requirements influence architecture design and hardware constraints
influence design of algorithms and software. High Performance Computing
(HPC) is facing daunting challenges as we move towards the exascale era,
with the necessity of designing systems that run large-scale simulations
with high performance while meeting cost and energy consumption
constraints. Effective codesign requires collaboration between domain
scientists, applied mathematicians, computer scientists, and hardware
architects. Representative proxy applications, ranging from kernels to
miniapplications, must be extracted from and validated against full
applications to allow for evaluation on new and emerging hardware
architectures. Hardware must be designed to meet application requirements
while meeting cost constraints. Finally, system software must be designed
that supports the programming and execution models required for highly
concurrent, complex, and heterogeneous applications and systems.

We solicit high quality, original research articles as well as review
articles focused on the interrelationships between algorithms/applications,
systems software, and hardware and on methodologies and tools for
hardware-software codesign for HPC.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

   - Use of simulation and emulation techniques for codesign
   - Modeling and prediction of performance and energy consumption
   - Cooptimization for multiple objectives (such as performance, power,
   and resilience)
   - Evaluation of new processor and memory technologies for scientific
   - Mapping of algorithms and applications to heterogeneous systems
   - Concurrent design space exploration of software and hardware
   - Design and validation of proxy applications
   - Bounds analysis of application requirements with respect to data
   movement and power/energy consumption
   - Programming and execution models for new architectures
   - Design and use of reconfigurable hardware for meeting application
