The Eleventh International Workshop on
Programmability and Architectures for Heterogeneous Multicores 

To be held in conjunction with:
the 13th International Conference on
High-Performance and Embedded Architectures and Compilers (HiPEAC)
Manchester, UK, January 24, 2018

Workshop website: http://research.ac.upc.edu/multiprog/

Goal of the Workshop

Computer manufacturers have embarked on the many-core roadmap, promising 
to add
more and more cores/hardware threads on their chips. The ever-increasing 
of cores and heterogeneity in architectures has placed new burdens on the
programming community. Software needs to be parallelized and optimized for
accelerators such as GPUs in order to take advantage of the new breed of
multi-/many-core computers. As a result, progress in how to easily 
harness the
computing power of multi-core architectures is in great demand.

The eleventh edition of the MULTIPROG workshop aims to bring together 
interested in programming models, runtimes, and computer architecture. The
workshop's emphasis is on heterogeneous architectures and covers issues 
such as:

     * How can future parallel programming models improve software 

     * How should compilers, runtimes and architectures support programming
       models and emerging applications?

     * How to design efficient data structures and innovative algorithms?

MULTIPROG is intended for quick publication of early results, 
etc., and is not intended to prevent later publication of extended papers.
Informal proceedings with accepted papers will be made available at the 
and online at the workshop’s web page http://research.ac.upc.edu/multiprog/.

Topics of interest
Papers are sought on topics including, but not limited to:
     * Multi-core architectures
         o Architectural support for compilers/programming models
         o Processor (core) architecture and accelerators, in particular 
         o Memory system architecture
         o Performance, power, temperature, and reliability issues
     * Heterogeneous computing
         o Algorithms and data structures for heterogeneous systems
         o Applications for heterogeneous computing and real-time graphics
     * Programming models for multi-core architectures
         o Language extensions
         o Run-time systems
         o Compiler optimizations and techniques
     * Benchmarking of multi-/many-core architectures
         o Tools for discovering and understanding parallelism
         o Tools for understanding performance and debugging
         o Case studies and performance evaluation

Important dates
Paper submission: October 22, 2017 (anywhere on Earth)
Author notification: November 27, 2017
