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

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 
platforms (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
Authors are encouraged to submit original, unpublished research or 
overviews on Algorithms, Models and Tools for Parallel Computing on 
Heterogeneous Platforms. Manuscripts should be limited to 12 pages 
(including references) in Springer LNCS stylesheet and submitted 
through the EasyChair Conference System:

For further questions, please contact the program chair(s).

Accepted papers that are presented at the workshop will be published in 
revised form in a special Euro-Par Workshop Volume in the Lecture Notes 
in Computer Science (LNCS) series after the Euro-Par conference.

Journal Special Issue
Authors of selected papers accepted for presentation at HeteroPar'2019 
will be invited to submit a revised and extended version of their work 
to a special issue of Wiley's Concurrency and Computation Practice and 
Experience journal:
