Synopsis:
ASPLOS is the premier forum for multidisciplinary systems research spanning computer architecture and hardware, programming languages and compilers, operating systems and networking. The ASPLOS 2018 will be held in Williamsburg, Virginia, a town that combines a rich slice of American Colonial and Revolutionary history with a modern college atmosphere. Like its predecessors, ASPLOS 2018 invites papers on ground-breaking research at the intersection of at least two ASPLOS disciplines: architecture, programming languages, operating systems, and related areas. Non-traditional topics are especially encouraged. The importance of cross-cutting research continues to grow as we grapple with the end of Dennard scaling, the explosion of big data, scales ranging from ultra-low power wearable devices to exascale parallel and cloud computers, the need for sustainability, and increasingly human-centered applications. ASPLOS embraces systems research that directly targets these new problems in innovative ways. The research may target diverse goals, such as performance, energy and thermal efficiency, resiliency, security, and sustainability. The review process will be sensitive to the challenges of multidisciplinary work in emerging areas.

WACCPD 2017

Title:IEEE Fourth Workshop on Accelerator Programming using Directives
Submission Deadline:2017-08-22
Webpage:http://waccpd.org/
Dates:November, 13, 2017
Location:Denver, Colorado
Contact Email:organizers@waccpd.org
Synopsis:
Given the complexity in hardware, maintaining a single code base yet achieving performance portable solution continues to pose a daunting task. Directive-based programming models such as OpenACC, OpenMP have been tackling this issue by offering scientists a high-level approach to accelerate scientific applications and develop solutions that are portable and yet do not compromise on performance or accuracy. Such programming paradigm has facilitated complex heterogeneous systems to be classified as first-class citizens for HPC! To address the rapid pace of hardware evolution, software developers continue to explore language features and abstractions and build high-level directive-based programming models, its effective compiler and runtime components thus reducing the programming burden on application scientists. This workshop aims to solicit papers that explore innovative language features and their implementations, stories and lessons learnt while using directives to migrate scientific legacy code to parallel processors, state-of-the-art compilation and runtime scheduling techniques, performance optimization and analysis on state-of-the-art hardware and so on.
