Heterogeneity is emerging as one of the most profound and challenging
characteristics of today's parallel environments. From the macro
level, where networks of distributed computers, composed by diverse
node architectures, are interconnected with potentially heterogeneous
networks, to the micro level, where deeper memory hierarchies and
various accelerator architectures are increasingly common, the impact
of heterogeneity on all computing tasks is increasing
rapidly. Traditional parallel algorithms, programming environments and
tools, designed for legacy homogeneous multiprocessors, will at best
achieve a small fraction of the efficiency and the potential
performance that we should expect from parallel computing in tomorrow's
highly diversified and mixed environments. New ideas, innovative
algorithms, and specialized programming environments and tools are
needed to efficiently use these new and multifarious parallel

The workshop is intended to be a forum for researchers
working on algorithms, programming languages, tools, and theoretical
models aimed at efficiently solving problems on heterogeneous
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Heterogeneous parallel programming paradigms and models;
- Languages, libraries, and interfaces for different heterogeneous 
  parallel programming models;
- Performance models and their integration into the design of
  efficient parallel algorithms for heterogeneous platforms;
- Parallel algorithms for heterogeneous and/or hierarchical
  systems, including manycores and hardware accelerators (FPGAs,
  GPUs, etc.);
- Algorithms for efficient problem solving on
  heterogeneous platforms (numerical linear algebra, nonlinear
  systems, fast transforms, computational biology, data mining,
  multimedia, etc.);
- Software engineering for heterogeneous parallel systems;
- Applications and new application domains of heterogeneous platforms;
- Integration of parallel and distributed computing on
  heterogeneous platforms;
- Experience of porting parallel software from supercomputers
  to heterogeneous platforms;
- Fault tolerance of parallel computations on heterogeneous
- Algorithms, models and tools for grid, desktop grid, cloud,
  and green computing.


Authors are encouraged to submit original, unpublished research or overviews 
on Algorithms, Models and Tools for Parallel Computing on Heterogeneous Platforms. 
Manuscripts should be limited to 12 pages in Springer LNCS stylesheet and 
submitted through the EasyChair Conference System. Accepted papers 
that are presented at the workshop will be published in revised form in a special 
Euro-Par Workshop Volume in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series after 
the Euro-Par conference. Approval for a special issue with selected and revised 
articles from the workshop, to be published in the journal Concurrency and Computation:
Practice and Experience, is pending.

The LNCS Stylesheet can be found at
