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 architecture
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

The topics to be covered include but are not limited to:

  * Heterogeneous parallel programming paradigms and models
  * Scheduling on heterogeneous resources
  * 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,
    AI accelerators, etc.)
  * Parallel algorithms for efficient problem solving on heterogeneous
    platforms (numerical linear algebra, nonlinear systems, fast transforms,
    computational biology, data mining, artificial intelligence,
    multimedia, etc.)
  * Software engineering for heterogeneous parallel systems
  * Real-world applications on heterogeneous platforms
  * Algorithms, models and tools for energy optimization on heterogeneous
  * Multi-objective optimization of applications on heterogeneous platforms
  * 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

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Authors are encouraged to submit original, unpublished research or overviews on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.

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. The minimum length of the
papers to be included in the formal proceedings is 10 pages.

Journal Special Issue
Authors of selected papers accepted for presentation at HeteroPar'2020 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.
