                                CALL FOR PAPERS

        First International Workshop on Data Locality in Modern Computing
                        Systems (DLMCS) Granada, Spain

         Held in Conjunction with ICA3PP 2016, The 16th International
                Conference on Algorithms and Architectures for
                       Parallel Processing (ICA3PP 2016)

                   Granada, Spain, December 14-16, 2016




The cost of moving data is becoming a dominant factor for performance
and energy efficiency in high performance computing systems. To
minimize data movement, applications have to consider initial data
placement and optimize both vertical data movement in the memory
hierarchy and horizontal data transfer between processing units.

While trends in computer architecture suggest that the number of
computing cores on a node is continuing to increase, it is likely that
some long-held programmability assumptions such as cache coherence
across a whole compute node will no longer be valid on future
systems. At the same time, the inclusion of high-bandwidth memory and
non-volatile storage will further complicate the programming of HPC
systems. To address this situation, application developers need to be
equipped with new techniques, tools, libraries, and programming
abstractions to deal with data locality as a first class concern.
