The Third International Workshop on GPU Computing and AI (GCA)

to be held in conjunction with

The Sixth International Symposium on Computing and Networking (CANDAR'18),
Hida Takayama, Japan, November 27-30, 2018


Built for massive parallelism, General Purpose computing on Graphic
Processing Unit (GPGPU) has superseded high-performance CPU in several
important tasks, including computer graphics, physics calculations,
encryption/decryption and scientific computations. Also, GPGPUs have
been considered as a natural alternative to fulfill the computing
needs for Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning applications.
Recent developments have shown intensive research activity in these

The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum to discuss and
evaluate emerging techniques, platforms and applications, capable of
harvesting the power of current GPGPUs as well as to share new ideas
from the research area of Artificial Intelligence.

The GCA workshop seeks for high-quality papers on various topics,
including but not limited to:

* GPU computing
 - GPU applications
 - Computer graphics on GPUs
 - GPU compilation
 - GPU programming environments
 - GPU power efficiency
 - GPU architectures
 - GPU theoretical computing models
 - GPU benchmarking/measurements
 - GPU embedded systems
 - Multi-GPU systems
 - GPU cluster
 - Heterogeneous GPU platforms
 - CPU-GPU cooperation
 - CUDA/OpenCL/OpenACC
 - Deep learning on GPUs

* Artificial intelligence
 - Artificial neural networks
 - Big data analytics
 - Data mining
 - Deep learning
 - Experts systems
 - Fuzzy logic
 - Machine learning
 - Natural language processing
 - Computer vision
 - Reinforcement learning

[Paper format]
* Regular paper: 5-7 pages
* Poster paper: 3-4 pages

The conference and workshop proceedings will be published by Conference
Publishing Service and submitted to IEEE Xplore and CSDL digital libraries.
Also, they are submitted for indexing through INSPEC, EI (Compendex),
Thomson ISI, and other indexing services.
