The 2021 International Workshop on Programming Models and Applications 
for Multicores and Manycores will be co-located with the PPoPP 2021 
conference in February 27 -- 3 March, 2021

Rapid advancements in multicore and chip-level multi-threading 
technologies open new challenges and make multicore systems a part of 
the computing landscape. From high-end servers to mobile phones, 
multicores and manycores are steadily entering every single aspect of 
the information technology.

However, most programmers are trained in sequential programming, yet 
most existing parallel programming models are prone to errors such as 
data race and deadlock. Therefore, to fully utilize multicore and 
manycore hardware, parallel programming models that allow easy 
transition of sequential programs to parallel programs with good 
performance and enable development of error-free codes are urgently 

This workshop is dedicated primarily to gather researchers and 
practitioners addressing the main challenges and share experiences in 
the emerging multicore and manycore software engineering and distributed 
programming paradigm. This workshop aims to provide a discussion forum 
for people interested in programming environments, models, tools and 
applications specifically designed for parallel multicore and manycore 
hardware environments. Selected best papers of PMAM will be considered 
for publication in a special issue of highly ranked journal.

The program committee cordially invites any novel research ideas in (but 
not limited to) the following topics:

programming models and systems for multicore, manycore, and clusters of 
parallel machine learning and AI algorithms
parallel resource management on large-scale datacenters
multicore and manycore software engineering
parallel and distributed algorithms on GPU, FPGA, and multicore clusters
parallel libraries and frameworks
performance analysis, efficiency and effectiveness
massively parallel processing on multicore/manycore systems and clusters
automated parallelization and compilation techniques
debugging and performance autotuning tools and techniques for 
multicore/manycore applications
parallel algorithms, applications and benchmarks on multicore/manycore 
runtime power/energy management on multicore/manycore systems and 
fault tolerance and resilience


All accepted papers will be published in the PMAM 2021 proceedings by 
the ACM Digital Library, and will be included in the Elsevier databases 
Scopus and Compendex (EI indexed).

Selected best papers of PMAM will be considered for publication in a 
special issue of CC-PE.
