18th International Workshop on Algorithms, Models and Tools
for Parallel Computing on Heterogeneous Platforms

in conjunction with EuroPar 2020


* Submission of manuscripts: May 29, 2020
* Notification of acceptance: July 03, 2020
* Preliminary camera-ready version: July 31, 2020
* Date of workshop: August 24, 2020
* LNCS camera-ready papers: TBD, 2020
* Journal Special Issue first version: TBD, 2020


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 platforms.

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.
