The First International Workshop on Heterogeneous Computation in Specific
Domain Accelerations (HC-SDA 2019)
February 16, 2019
Washington D.C., USA
In conjunction with the 25th IEEE International Symposium on
High-Performance Computer Architecture (HPCA-2019)

Data is being generated at an unprecedented rate in the IoT era across
countless applications. How to process the Big Data in a timely manner is a
major obstacle we are facing nowadays. The growing diversity and
heterogeneity of the hardware platforms just adds another layer of
complexity on top of a challenging problem. Even though heterogeneous
platforms such as GPUs, Xeon Phis, and FPGAs, has been widely adopted, the
emerging computer architectures with coprocessors and hybrid memories are
encountering big challenges. Therefore, how to effectively and efficiently
utilize different hardware accelerators together to serve one single
application remains a challenge for heterogeneous computing researchers.
HC-SDA 2019 seeks original unpublished research on algorithms, models,
applications and tools for heterogeneous computing to accelerate the
performance, to improve energy efficiency, and to enhance the reliability
of heterogeneous platforms from edge to cloud and in between. We are
particularly interested in heterogeneous computing research employing two
or more different types of hardware accelerators. The topics to be covered
include but are not limited to:
* Microarchitecture design on heterogeneous processor/system combined with
emerging memory/storage system (PCM, SSD, etc.)
* Heterogeneous parallel programming paradigms and models.
* Energy efficient parallel accelerating models for heterogeneous
* Parallel algorithms for heterogeneous and/or hierarchical systems,
including many-cores and hardware accelerators (FPGAs, GPUs, Xeon Phis,
* Heterogeneous computation support for autonomous vehicle driving or other
applications using artificial intelligent algorithms (e.g., images
processing, features recognition).
* Heterogeneous computing in large-scale data centers.
* Software engineering implementation on heterogeneous computing platforms.
* Multiple objectives optimization on heterogeneous platforms.
* Task scheduling algorithms with heterogeneous cloud and datacenter
* Experience with porting parallel software from supercomputers to
heterogeneous platforms
* Fault tolerance of parallel computations on heterogeneous platforms.
