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

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
   (numerical linear algebra, nonlinear systems, fast transforms,
   computational biology, data mining, multimedia, etc.)
 * Software engineering for heterogeneous parallel systems
 * Applications on heterogeneous platforms
 * Algorithms, models and tools for energy optimization on heterogeneous
 * Bi-objective optimization of applications on heterogeneous platforms for
   performance and energy
 * Integration of parallel and distributed computing on heterogeneous
 * 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

Submission Guidelines
