Call for Papers

The 7th IEEE International Workshop on Multicore and Multithreaded Architectures and Algorithms (M2A2 2015)

in conjunction with 

The 17th IEEE International Conference on High Performance Computing and Communications (HPCC 2015)

August 24 - 26, 2015, New York, USA


Multicore systems are dominating the processor market ranging from embedded to high-performance systems. Processor manufactures have emphasized multi-core CPUs as the answer to scaling system performance. The core count increases with each chip multiprocessor generations due to the transistor node shrinks. To take advantage of current multicores, efficient load balancing and scheduling policies or strategies are required. In addition, it remains a challenge to identify and productively program applications for these systems with a resulting substantial performance improvement. 

A recent trend proposes heterogeneous systems as efficient processors to deal with performance and power. Different heterogeneity design choices have been explored, like hybrid CPU/GPU architectures that deal with parallel performance or systems with different core types implementing distinct Instruction-Set Architectures (ISA). Finally, most real-time embedded applications are requiring high-performance computing and multicore/multithreaded/heterogeneous processors are becoming the common design choice.

The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum for engineers and scientists to address the resulting challenge and to present new ideas, applications, and experience on all aspects of multicore/multithreaded/heterogeneous systems.

Authors are invited to submit high quality papers representing their original work in (but not limited to) the following topics targeting multicore multithreaded processors:
* Multicore/multithreaded/heterogeneous architectures
* Power-aware multicore/heterogeneous architectures
* Embedded multicore/heterogeneous real-time systems 
* Scheduling and load balancing
* Multicore programming 
* Parallel and distributed algorithms

Paper Submission and Publication:
Submit original unpublished papers in PDF or Ms-Word formats at the submission system: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=m2a2-2015. All submitted manuscripts will be reviewed at least by three expert reviewers. Submissions will be judged on originality, technical strength, quality of presentation, and relevance to the workshop scope. 
All accepted papers will be included in the HPCC-2015 workshop proceeding published by IEEE Computer Society (indexed by EI). The length of the camera-ready manuscripts will be limited to 8 pages in IEEE CS proceedings paper format. Authors of accepted papers, or at least one of them, are requested to register and present their work at the conference, otherwise their papers will not be published.
Distinguished papers accepted and presented in M2A2 2015, after further revisions, would be considered for publication in special issues of SCI indexed journals.

Important Dates:
May 31, 2015: Paper Submission Due
June 30, 2015: Notification of Acceptance/Rejection
July 15, 2015: Camera-Ready Due
August 24-25, 2015: Workshop Takes Place
