The 1st ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on Programming Heterogeneous Computing Systems

To be held in Santa Barbara, California, USA, June 13, 2016, In conjunction with PLDI 2016http://conf.researchr.org/track/pldi-2016/WPHCS-2016-papersHeterogeneous computing systems are emerging as one of the most common sense and challenging features of the cutting-edge parallel and high performance environments. The heterogeneity of computing tasks is boosting significantly from different levels of parallelism. However, traditional parallel programming models, memory hierarchies, algorithms, tools, designed for or homogeneous or symmetric multiprocessors, will be able to achieve limited performance improvement and productivity in next generation highly diverse heterogeneous computing systems. Novel ideas, innovative algorithms, and programming paradigms and specialized software tools should be considered to efficiently utilize the hardware resources on the new heterogeneous architectures (e.g., GPU, FPGA). 
The workshop is intended to be a forum for researchers to present and discuss innovative ideas and solutions in the design, modeling, prototyping, programming, and experience of heterogeneous architectures and Systems. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
	Programming paradigms and middleware for heterogeneous platforms (hybrid clusters, Grids or Clouds)
	Programming models for heterogeneous systems, including manycores and hardware accelerators (FPGAs, GPUs, etc.)
	Programming languages, libraries, runtime support and interfaces for diverse heterogeneous programming models (CUDA, OpenCL, etc.)
	Programming with memory hierarchies and novel explicit memory systems (NVRAM, STT-RAM,3D Memory, etc.)
	Software tooling (e.g., testing, debugging, tuning, and analysis tools) for programs on heterogeneous platforms.
	Applications and case studies on heterogeneous computing systems, such as neural networks, deep learning, neuromorphic engineering, scientific computing, and computational biology data-intensive applications.
	Fault tolerance of heterogeneous computations on heterogeneous platforms

Authors are encouraged to submit original, unpublished research or overviews on programming models, algorithms and tools on heterogeneous platforms, namely addressing the topics referred above.
Submitted manuscripts may not exceed a total of 6 pages in ACM SIGPLAN proceedings style, including figures, tables, and references. The results of the workshop will be made available on-line to participants before the workshop event. The posters and slides will be available on-line after the workshop event. Submissions will be with EasyChair. https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wphcs2016

Accepted and presented papers will be published in ACM Digital Library.
