                          CALL FOR PAPERS
                  IXPUG Workshop HPC Asia 2018

                      January 31st, 2018 
                    Akihabara, Tokyo, Japan 
                in Conjunction with HPC Asia 2018 
      (International Conference on HPC in Asia-Pacific Region)

IXPUG Workshop HPC Asia 2018 is an open workshop on high performance
computing application, system and architectural technology on Intel
Xeon Phi many-core processor and coprocessor. IXPUG (Intel Xeon Phi
Users Group) is a user community to share knowledge and experience on
Intel Xeon Phi related computing.
IXPUG Workshop HPC Asia 2018 is the first IXPUG Workshop in Asian
region, as a part of International Conference HPC Asia 2018 held in
Tokyo, Japan. This is a half day workshop with contributed papers and
key note talks. Any research aspect related to Intel Xeon Phi is
welcome to present to share this advanced technology for high
performance computing.
About one year has passed after the first Intel Xeon Phi standalone
processor (Knights Landing architecture), and three supercomputers
equipped with this processor ranked in TOP10 supercomputers in the
world to provide several tens PFLOPS performance. The technology to
apply this processor to practical applications are now on the stage of
productive execution from past practical ones. In this IXPUG Workshop
HPC Asia 2018, users of Intel Xeon Phi processors share the knowledge
on how to use, optimize and perform the high end computation for the
state of the art research.

January 31st (Wed) afternoon (Day-3 of HPC Asia 2018)
Akihabara UDX Building, Tokyo, Japan

Any topics on Intel Xeon Phi processor and coprocessor family
including the following topics, but not limited:
 - Application porting and performance optimization
 - System software and middleware
 - Hardware related issues
