***************************************************************************************
* ALCHEMY Workshop 2015
* Architecture, Languages, Compilation and Hardware support for Emerging ManYcore systems
*
* Held in conjunction with the International Conference on Computational Science (ICCS 2015)
* Reykjavik, Iceland, 1-3 June 2015

* Important dates are synchronized with the ICCS meeting
***************************************************************************************

The International Conference on Computational Science is an annual
conference that brings together researchers and scientists from mathematics
and computer science as basic computing disciplines, researchers from various
application areas who are pioneering computational methods in sciences such
as physics, chemistry, life sciences, and engineering, as well as in arts and
humanitarian fields, to discuss problems and solutions in the area, to identify new
issues, and to shape future directions for research.


Call for papers
***************

Massively parallel processors have entered high performance computing
architectures, as well as embedded systems. In June 2014, the TOP500
number one system (Tianhe-2) features the 57-core Intel Xeon Phi
processor. The increase of the number of cores on a chip is expected
to rise in the next years, as shown by the ITRS trends: other examples
include the Kalray MPPA 256-core chip, the 63-core Tilera GX processor
and even the crowd-funded 64-core Parallella Epiphany chip. In this
context, developers of parallel applications, including heavy
simulations and scientific calculations will undoubtedly have to cope
with many-core processors at the early design steps.

In the two past sessions of the Alchemy workshop, held together with
the ICCS meeting, we have presented significant contributions on the
design of many-core processors, both in the hardware and the software
programming environment sides, as well as some industrial-grade
application case studies. In this 2015 session, we seek academic
and industrial works that contribute to the design and the
programmability of many-core processors.

Topics include, but are not limited to:
* Programming models and languages for many-cores
* Compilers for programming languages
* Runtime generation for parallel programming on manycores
* Architecture support for massive parallelism management
* Enhanced communications for CMP/manycores
* Shared memory, data consistency models and protocols
* New operating systems, or dedicated OS
* User feedback on existing manycore architectures
(experiments with Adapteva Epiphany, Intel Phi, Kalray MPPA, ST
STHorm, Tilera Gx, TSAR..etc)


Submission
**************

This year, there will be two formats for the presentation at the
workshop. The usual full-length paper is 10 pages according to the ICCS
format, and the short-paper format well fitted for works in progress,
with a maximum of 2 pages. The accepted papers for full-length paper
will be published alongside with the ICCS proceedings in Procedia
Computer Science, whereas the short-papers will be presentation and
poster only at the conference (with proceedings and presentations
available from the workshop website).
