Workshop 01- DMCC

3rd Workshop on Dependable Many-Core Computing (DMCC 2011)

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

Istanbul, Turkey

(Submission Deadline: February 28, 2011)


Today, the integration of many cores is common - and the end of the road is not in sight. These many-core architectures bring up unprecedented capabilities, opportunities, as well as challenges. The more transistors are integrated on a chip and the more cores are introduced, the more faults can be asserted. These faults arise either during fabrication or operation. As the fabrication costs are continuously rising, it is most important to increase the output of a fab by software, architectural, or physical means. This workshop addresses issues and solutions through dependable software or hardware design of many-core systems.

The Workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

    • Dependable Many-Core Architectures

    • Power-Aware Many-Core Design

    • Dependable & Secure Many-Core Designs

    • Many-Core Development and Design Tools

    • Simulation Techniques

    • System-Level Many-Core Implementation

    • Many-Core Interconnect Technology

    • Many-Core System-On-Chip Development

    • Reconfigurable Computing and FPGAs

    • Design for Testing

    • Hardware and Software Debug Facilities

    • Many-Core Programming and Optimization

  • Application Partitioning and Load Balancing

  • Hypervisors and Virtual Machine Technology

  • Trusted and Untrusted Environments

  • Virtualization for Dependability

  • Dependability through Multi-Threading

  • Fault Detection on the Physical Layer

  • Fault-Tolerant Software Design

  • Fault-Tolerant Hardware Design

  • Fault-Tolerant HW/SW Co-Design


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 organizer at

Only PDF files will be accepted. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, 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 organizer.
