Call for Papers

The 2018 International Workshop on Programming Models and Applications for
Multicores and Manycores will be co-located with the PPoPP 2018 conference in
February 24-28, 2018, Vösendorf, Austria.

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
every single aspect of the information technology.

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

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
aims to provide a discussion forum for people interested in programming
environments, models, tools and applications specifically designed for
multicore and manycore hardware environments. Selected best papers of PMAM
will be
considered for publication in a special issue of high ranked journal
Parallel Computing, PARCO).

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
       • multicore and manycore software engineering
       • parallel and distributed algorithms on GPU and multicore
       • 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
       • parallel algorithms, applications and benchmarks on
       • runtime power/energy management on multicore/manycore
systems and clusters
       • fault tolerance and resilience


All accepted papers will be published in the PMAM 2018 proceedings by the ACM
Digital Library, and will be included in the Elsevier databases Scopus and
(EI indexed).

Selected best papers of PMAM will be considered for publication in a
special issue
of Parallel Computing (https://www.journals.elsevier.com/parallel-computing/
