*High-Level Programming Methods and Directives for Multicore and Manycore
systems (HPM4MMS)*


*January 20, 2016*

*Co-located with **HiPEAC 2016*


Prague, Czech Republic


As heterogeneous node architectures are becoming more prevalent for
mainstream computing systems, the requirement for simple and platform
portable programming methods manifests in a number of different programming
strategies. Application developers that want to migrate existing to or
develop new applications for these novel platforms, are looking for
best-practice approaches that offer a reasonable results in a short period
of development time. As a result domain specific languages as well as
directive based programming methods are welcome strategies when targeting
heterogeneous system architectures, since they can abstract the underlying
hardware specific details of low-level programming approaches and have
shown to offer very good productivity. The holy grail for all such
strategies is to achieve not only a platform portability but also offer an
application performance the is comparable to the low-level programming
models on multiple platforms without code changes. The proposed workshop
will solicit papers and presentations both on the methodology of these
approaches as well as best-practice experiences from early adopters.

*Topics of interest for workshop submissions include (but are not limited

   - Directives-based programming models for current and emerging systems
   - Ideas and implementations for language extensions
   - Language extensions or programming strategies for memory hierarchies
   - Interoperability and Composability with low-level APIs
   - Users’ experiences and implementations
   - Scientific libraries interoperability with directive-based programming
   - Exploring high-level prescriptive or descriptive programming approaches
   - Hybrid programming approaches (OpenMP + MPI, MPI +X, MPI + OpenACC and
   so on)
   - Task-based programming (asynchronous execution, scheduling)
   - Translating to low-level API, design approaches and challenges
   - Experiences developing applications for current and emerging systems
   - Challenges in maintaining a portable yet single code base
   - Debugging, performance evaluation and benchmark studies
   - Energy/Power-aware compiler and runtime optimizations for current and
   emerging systems

*Papers Submission Guidelines:*

Papers should present original research and should provide sufficient
background material to make them accessible to the broader community.
