ExHET 2023: The 2nd International Workshop on Extreme Heterogeneity Solutions 
to be held in conjunction with PPoPP 2023 

25 February, 2023 
Montreal, Canada 

While computing technologies have remained relatively stable for nearly two decades, new architectural features, such as specialized hardware, heterogeneous cores, deep memory hierarchies, and near-memory processing, have emerged as possible solutions to address the concerns of energy-efficiency, manufacturability, and cost. However, we expect this ‘golden age’ of architectural change to lead to extreme heterogeneity and it will have a major impact on software systems and applications. In this upcoming exascale and extreme heterogeneity era, it will be critical to explore new software approaches that will enable us to effectively exploit this diverse hardware to advance science, the next-generation systems with heterogeneous elements will need to accommodate complex workflows. This is mainly due to the many forms of heterogeneous accelerators (no longer just GPU accelerators) in this heterogeneous era, and the need of mapping different parts of an application onto elements most appropriate for that application component. 

[Objectives, scope and topics of the workshop] 
The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum to discuss new and emerging solutions to address these important challenges from the upcoming extreme heterogeneity era. Papers are being sought on many aspects of heterogeneous computing including (but not limited to): 

Heterogeneous Programming Environments and Runtime Systems 
--Programming models and systems 
--Parallel resource management on heterogeneous systems 
--Automated parallelization and compiler techniques (Autotuning) 
Heterogeneous Solutions for HPC and Scientific Applications 
--Parallel and distributed algorithms 
--Parallel libraries and frameworks 
--Parallel processing on heterogeneous systems 
Heterogeneous (included Non-von Neuman) Architectures 
--Power/energy management 
--Heterogeneous architectures for emerging application domains 
--Architecture designs including Non-von Neuman architectures, memory and interconnection 
--Debugging, performance tools and techniques 
--Fault tolerance and resilience 
--Application/hardware benchmarks
