                    International Workshop on

Programming Models, Languages and Compilers Workshop for Manycore and
Heterogeneous Architectures

             (PLC 2014)


                Held in conjunction with the

28th International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium (IPDPS

                  Phoenix, Arizona, USA, May 20th, 2014





Three essential pillars to successful parallel computing - Productivity,
Portability, Performance. Creating software for heterogeneous systems can
be quite complex especially when the low-level details need to be managed
and abstracted from the programmer. Emerging standards are providing an
incremental development to target heterogeneous architectures, be it
NVIDIA, ARM, Intel or AMD. We all know software is an expensive investment.
Portability is necessary, ensuring long lifetime of the software and thus
reducing the maintenance cost. Other challenges include locality and memory
issues, load balancing, hiding latency with concurrency and so on.

This workshop aims to brainstorm ways to make programming
heterogeneous systems less challenging and more interesting. We believe
that this workshop will provide a forum for the presentation and
discussions of research on all aspects of heterogeneous systems programming
models, compiler optimizations, language extensions, and software tools for
such systems.

*Areas of interest include but are not limited to the following topics:*

   - Multicore processors, Heterogeneous systems, Accelerators
   - Programming models: thread and task based models, data parallel
   models, stream programming
   - Programming environments for heterogeneous systems
      - OpenMP for Accelerator
      - OpenACC
      - OpenCL/CUDA
      - OpenHMPP and other related models
      - DSL
   - Compiler optimizations and tuning heterogeneous systems
      - Parallelization and loop transformations
      - Locality optimizations
      - SIMDization/Vectorization
      - Reducing synchronization and scheduling overheads on heterogeneous
      - Tiling, parametric tiling and offloading
   - Runtime systems for multicore processors, heterogeneous systems,
   - Debuggers, and performance analysis tools for heterogeneous system and
   - Application and Benchmarks



Papers should present original research and should provide sufficient
background material to make them accessible to the broader community. In
addition, we solicit papers from practitioners describing problems and
experiences building software tools for Multicore processors and GPU

Full paper submissions should not exceed 10 pages in standard IEEE
conference format. Submissions can be made through this link

The proceedings of this workshop will be published electronically together
with with IPDPS proceedings via the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

Selected papers will appear in the special issue of a Journal (TBD later).

The hpc-announce mailing list has been setup to have a common mailing
list to share information with respect to upcoming HPC related
events. You are included in this mailing list based on your
participation or interest in a previous HPC conference or other event.

The purpose for providing a single mailing list is to allow
participants to easily identify such emails, and handle them
appropriately. Some options include:

1. If you feel that the number of such emails is too many, filter them
to less-frequently-read folders in your email client.

2. Change your subscription to a digest option
(https://lists.mcs.anl.gov/mailman/listinfo/hpc-announce) which will
consolidate emails sent that week into a single summary email.

3. Finally, if you do not wish to receive any emails from hpc-announce,
you can unsubscribe from the mailing list
(https://lists.mcs.anl.gov/mailman/listinfo/hpc-announce). Once
unsubscribed, we guarantee that you will not be added back in through
participation in a different HPC related conference or event. You will
need to send an email to hpc-announce-owner at mcs.anl.gov to be added
back on.

If you need help with any of the above, please email us at
hpc-announce-owner at mcs.anl.gov.
