                       CALL FOR PAPERS

  8th International Workshop on Algorithms, Models and Tools
         for Parallel Computing on Heterogeneous Platforms


               August 29, 2011, Bordeaux, France
                  in conjunction with EuroPar 2011


 * Submission of manuscripts: Monday, June 20, 2011
 * Notification of acceptance: Friday, July 8, 2011
 * Deadline for final version: Friday, July 29, 2011
 * Date of workshop: Tuesday, August 29, 2011

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, can at best achieve on a small fraction of the
efficiency and potential performance 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 networks.

Authors are encouraged to submit original, unpublished research or
overviews on Algorithms, Models and Tools for Parallel Computing on
Heterogeneous Platforms. Manuscripts should be limited to 10 pages in
Springer LNCS style sheet and submitted through the EasyChair
Conference System:
Accepted papers that are presented at the workshop will be published
in revised form in a special Euro-Par Workshop Volume in the Lecture
Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series after the Euro-Par conference.

The topics to be covered include but are not limited to:

   * Heterogeneous parallel programming paradigms and models;

   * Performance models and their integration into the design of efficient
      parallel algorithms for heterogeneous platforms;

   * Performance models and their integration into the design of
     efficient parallel algorithms for heterogeneous platforms;

   * Parallel algorithms for heterogeneous 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;

   * 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

   * Algorithms, models and tools for grid, desktop grid, cloud, and
     green computing.
