Workshop on Multiprocessor Systems on (Programmable) Chips
Call for Papers
As part of
The 2011 International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2011)
In Conjunction With
The International Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing Conference (IWCMC 2011)
July 4 – 8, 2011
(Submission Deadline: March 6, 2011)
SCOPE AND OBJECTIVE
Moore’s law continues to track the number of transistors that can be fabricated within a single FPGA, and manufacturers are now shipping components that can host complete multiprocessor systems on a reconﬁgurable programmable chip (MPSoPC). Based on this new capability FPGA manufactures are now challenging systems designers to view the processor in place of the transistor as the least separable design unit. Thus FPGA’s can now be viewed as yet one more technology platform within the multiprocessor systems on chip manycore era. Even though speciﬁc technologies may vary, system designers across the embedded systems, general purpose internet computing systems, and high performance systems domains are now facing common challenges associated with multiprocessor systems on (programmable) chip design. Common architecture issues include architecture heterogeneity, cache and memory hierarchies, and high performance interconnect networks. Common software issues include low latency and scalable operating systems, new coordination layers, and scalable programming models capable of seamlessly abstracting large numbers of potentially heterogeneous cores on a single chip into a single uniﬁed virtual platform. The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum for idea exchange and foster technology transfer between the reconﬁgurable, embedded systems, and general purpose communities that will foster synergistic resolution of these and other challenging issues.
The Workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to multiprocessor systems on programmable chips. 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 authors email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords from the above list of topics and an abstract of no more than 450 words. The full manuscript should be at most 7 pages using the two-column IEEE format. Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Please include page numbers on all preliminary submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments. Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript via email to the Workshop organizers at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
Only PDF files will be accepted. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, contributions, relevance, technical clarity and presentation. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be registered and presented at the workshop. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings which will be made available at the time of the meeting.
If you have any questions about paper submission or the workshop, please contact the organizers.
International Program Committee:
All submitted papers will be rigorously reviewed by the workshop technical program committee members following similar criteria used in HPCS 2011.
