Mini-Symposium on Energy and Resilience in Parallel Programming (ERPP 
2015) - In Conjunction with ParCo 2015
September 3-4 2015, Edinburgh, Scotland, UK

DEADLINE EXTENSION : Abstract submission June 30, 2015

The minisymposium provides a forum to broadly explore the implications 
of energy and resilience on the principles and practice of parallel 
programming. The minisymposium aims to present original research that 
uses energy and resilience as first-class resources in parallel 
programming languages, libraries and models and demonstrates how 
parallel programming can improve energy-efficiency and resilience of 
large-scale computing systems or many-core embedded systems. The 
minisymposium also intends to explore how energy and resilience 
management in hardware or system software may affect the performance of 
existing parallel programming environments.

The topics explored by this minisymposium include but are not limited to:

- Parallel programming abstractions for energy and resilience
- Compiler and runtime support for energy- and resilience-aware execution
- Parallel libraries and auto-tuning for energy and resilience
- Performance of parallel programming languages, libraries and tools in 
energy-constrained environments
- Measurement and characterization of resilience in parallel programming 
models, languages and libraries
- Measurement and characterization of energy in parallel programming 
models, languages and libraries
- New computing paradigms for improving energy and resilience in 
parallel programming, such as approximate computing or near-threshold 

Paper submission guidelines

We call for high-quality, original contributions (in English language) 
related to the minisymposium topics. Extended abstracts of at least 4 
pages should be submitted by June 23 2015 and will be published in a 
book of abstracts. Final, camera-ready versions of accepted full length 
papers (up to 10 pages) must be prepared in October 2015 (after the
