International Workshop on Exploitation of Hardware Accelerators
CALL FOR PAPERS
As part of
The International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2013)
July 1 – July 5, 2013
Extended Submission Deadline: March 28, 2013
Submissions could be for full papers, short papers, poster papers, or posters
SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES
The importance of hardware accelerators (GPUs, Cell, FPGAs, ...) is increasing rapidly, especially in the computationally demanding disciplines such as realistic 3D computer graphics and high-performance scientific computing. The use of these accelerators for General-Purpose computation achieves speedups of orders of magnitude vs. optimized CPU implementations. They have become powerful, capable, and inexpensive coprocessors useful for a wide variety of computation.
The aim of this workshop is to strongly encourage the exchange of experiences and knowledge in novel solutions exploiting and defining new trends in hardware accelerators, including hardware architecture, software tools, and applications.
The authors of the papers selected for the workshop may be invited to submit extended versions of their manuscripts to be considered for publication in a special issue.
The Workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
Languages and Compilers for Hardware Accelerators
Libraries and Tools to Simplify the Programming of Hardware Accelerators
Manual and Automatic Optimization Techniques
Application Development Experience
Benchmarking of Hardware Accelerators
Modeling and Performance Prediction for Hardware Accelerators
Novel Accelerator Architectures
INSTRUCTIONS FOR PAPER SUBMISSIONS:
You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to exploitation of hardware accelerators. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords and an abstract of no more than 400 words. The full manuscript should be at most 8 pages using the two-column IEEE format. Additional pages will be charged at additional fee. Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster papers and posters (please refer to http://hpcs2013.cisedu.info/home/posters for the posters submission details) will also be accepted for submission. In case of multiple authors, an indication of which author(s) is responsible for correspondence must be indicated. Please include page numbers on all submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments.
Only PDF files will be accepted. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, contributions, technical clarity and presentation. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be registered and presented at the special session.
Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings. Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the HPCS 2013 web site. It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of the conference. The proceedings is to be published as ISBN proceedings by the IEEE and will be available online through IEEE Digital Library and indexed by major indexing services accordingly (e.g., EI indexing).
A planned special issue of the Journal Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience will be available for selected papers of the workshop. Best papers will be invited to submit an extended version.
If you have any questions about paper submission or the workshop, please contact the workshop organizers.
