The 8th International Workshop on Programming Models and Applications for
Multicores and Manycores will be co-located with the PPoPP 2017 conference
in February 4-8, 2017, Austin, Texas, United States.

Rapid advancements in multicore and chip-level multi-threading
technologies open new challenges and make multicore systems a part of the
computing landscape. From high-end servers to mobile phones, multicores
and manycores are steadily entering every single aspect of the information

However, most programmers are trained in sequential programming, yet most
existing parallel programming models are prone to errors such as data race
and deadlock. To fully utilize multicore and manycore hardware, parallel
programming models that allow easy transition of sequential programs to
parallel programs with good performance and enable development of
error-free codes are urgently needed.

This workshop is dedicated primarily to gather researchers and practitioners
addressing the main challenges and share experiences in the emerging
multicore and manycore software engineering and distributed programming
paradigm. This workshop aims to provide a discussion forum for people
interested in programming environments, models, tools and applications
specifically designed for parallel multicore and manycore hardware

The program committee cordially invites any novel research ideas in (but
not limited to) the following topics:

*   programming models and systems for multicore, manycore, and clusters of

*   parallel resource management on large-scale datacenters

*   multicore and manycore software engineering

*   parallel and distributed algorithms on GPU, FPGA and multicore clusters

*   parallel libraries and frameworks

*   performance analysis, efficiency and effectiveness

*   massively parallel processing on multicore/manycore systems and clusters

*   automated parallelization and compilation techniques

*   debugging and performance autotuning tools and techniques for
multicore/manycore applications

*   parallel algorithms, applications and benchmarks on multicore/manycore

*   runtime power/energy management on multicore/manycore systems and

*   fault tolerance and resilience
