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 entering
every single aspect of the information technology.

However, most programmers are trained in sequential programming, yet most existing
parallel programming models are prone to errors such as data race and deadlock.
Therefore, 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 environments. Selected best papers of PMAM will be
considered for publication in a special issue of high ranked journal (Elsevier
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 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
        • parallel algorithms, applications and benchmarks on multicore/manycore systems
        • 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 Compendex (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/).
