The International Workshop on Algorithms, Models and Tools for Parallel 
Computing on Heterogeneous Platforms (HeteroPar'2021) will be held, in 
its nineteenth edition in Lisbon, Portugal. For the 12th time, this 
workshop is organized in conjunction with the EuroPar annual series of 
international conferences dedicated to the promotion and advancement of 
all aspects of parallel computing.

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 systems, 
including manycores and hardware accelerators (FPGAs, GPUs, 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 platforms
  * 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
  * Authors are encouraged to submit original, unpublished research or 
overviews on Algorithms, Models and Tools for Parallel Computing on 
Heterogeneous Platforms, namely addressing the topics referred above.

Submission Guidelines
Authors are encouraged to submit original, unpublished research or 
overviews on
Algorithms, Models and Tools for Parallel Computing on Heterogeneous 
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 
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.
