International Workshop on OpenPOWER for HPC (IWOPH’16)
June 23, 2016
Frankfurt, Germany
co-located with ISC 2016 <http://www.isc-hpc.com/home.html>

******* CALL FOR PAPERS *********

Paper deadline: 15 April 2016 (Extended)

This workshop will take place within the ISC High Performance conference
2016. It is intended to provide a venue for the broader HPC community to
Further understand OpenPOWER technologies and discuss how they can be
Harnessed for HPC applications needs. The latest advances in OpenPOWER
and how they might be used to address challenges regarding system
architecture, networking, memory designs, exploitation of accelerators,
programming models, and porting applications are of current interest
within the HPC community and this workshop. The workshop is currently
planned as a half-day workshop, but may be extended to a full-day

Full papers or work-in-progress reports are sought that are within the
Scope of the workshop and related to the OpenPOWER ecosystem. Topics
of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Porting applications experiences to OpenPOWER nodes to exploit
its HPC and data analytics capabilities

* Designs and use models for FPGA-accelerated applications

* Co-designing the HPC software stack (scientific libraries, compilers,

* Programming models for HPC and data analytics, including hybrid
  heterogeneous programming (e.g. MPI with OpenCL, OpenACC, CUDA,
  OpenMP4) models, DSLs, PGAS, and exascale runtimes

* Tools eco-system to improve productivity on OpenPOWER architectures
  (compilers, performance analysis, auto-tuning, debugging, verification,
  static analysis tools)

* System architectural choices including memory designs, networking

* Low level communication APIs, I/O frameworks

* Runtime environments and schedulers

* Benchmarking and validation studies on OpenPOWER architectures

All contributions are planned to be published in ISC¹16 Joint Workshop
Proceeding Volume. For full papers and work-in-progress reports a limit
of 18 and 6 pages apply, respectively. Paper submissions should be
formatted with the LNCS style (single column format) using
either the LaTeX document class or Word template. For details on the
author guidelines, please refer to Springer’s website.

Papers should be uploaded here:
