                               CALL FOR PAPERS

         12th International Workshop on Algorithms, Models and Tools
              for Parallel Computing on Heterogeneous Platforms


                     August 25 or 26, 2014, Aachen, Germany
                       in conjunction with EuroPar 2014


 * Submission of manuscripts: Friday, May 30, 2014
 * Notification of acceptance: Friday, July 4, 2014
 * Deadline for final version: Friday, October 3, 2014
 * Date of workshop: Mon.-Tue., August 25 or 26, 2014


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 by 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

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 multi-core systems
* 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
* Integration of parallel and distributed computing on heterogeneous platforms
* 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.
