Heterogeneity  is  emerging  as  one  of the  most  profound  and  challenging
characteristics of today's parallel environments.  From the macro level, where
networks of distributed  computers composed by diverse  node architectures are
interconnected with  potentially heterogeneous  networks, to the  micro level,
where  deeper memory  hierarchies  and various  accelerator architectures  are
increasingly common,  the impact  of heterogeneity on  all computing  tasks is
increasing rapidly. Traditional  parallel algorithms, programming environments
and  tools, designed  for  legacy homogeneous  multiprocessors,  will at  best
achieve a small fraction of the  efficiency and the potential performance that
we should expect from parallel  computing in tomorrow's highly diversified and
mixed  environments.   New  ideas,  innovative  algorithms,   and  specialized
programming environments and tools are needed to efficiently use these new and
multifarious parallel  architectures. The workshop  is intended to be  a forum
for  researchers  working on  algorithms,  programming  languages, tools,  and
theoretical  models aimed  at  efficiently solving  problems on  heterogeneous

The topics to be covered include but are not limited to:

 * Heterogeneous parallel programming paradigms and models
 * Languages, libraries, and interfaces for different heterogeneous 
   parallel programming models
 * Performance models and their integration into the design of efficient 
   parallel algorithms for heterogeneous platforms
 * Parallel algorithms for heterogeneous and/or hierarchical multi-core
   systems, including manycores and hardware accelerators (FPGAs, GPUs,
   Xeon Phi, etc.) 
 * Parallel algorithms for efficient problem solving on heterogeneous platforms 
   (numerical linear algebra, nonlinear systems, fast transforms, 
   computational biology, data mining, multimedia, etc.)
 * Software engineering for heterogeneous parallel systems
 * Applications on heterogeneous platforms
 * Integration of parallel and distributed computing on heterogeneous platforms
 * Experience of porting parallel software from supercomputers to 
   heterogeneous platforms
 * Fault tolerance of parallel computations on heterogeneous platforms
 * Algorithms, models and tools for grid, desktop grid, cloud, 
   and green computing

Authors are encouraged to submit original, unpublished research or
overviews on Algorithms, Models and Tools for Parallel Computing on
Heterogeneous Platforms. Manuscripts should be limited to 12 pages in
Springer LNCS stylesheet and submitted through the EasyChair
Conference System: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=europar2017workshops 

Accepted papers that are presented at the workshop
will be published in revised form in a special Euro-Par Workshop
Volume in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series after
the Euro-Par conference.

Special issue journal:

Authors of papers accepted for presentation at HeteroPar 2017 will
be invited to submit an extended version of their work to a Special
Issue of Wiley's Concurrency and Computation Practice and Experience.
This issue is limited to authors of both the HeteroPar 2017 workshop 
and the HCW 2017 workshop.

Please distribute to those who might be interested.
