WAMCA 2019

11th Workshop on Applications for Multi-Core Architectures
September 8-11, 2020
University of Porto, Porto, PORTUGAL

Held in conjunction with the
32th International Symposium on Computer Architecture and High Performance Computing (SBAC-PAD 2020)
** NEW ** WAMCA2020 will be held online (synchronous and/or asynchronous)

Since the advent of the multi-core concept, significant advances have been made on many of the related aspects. Multi-core has become a natural element in the HPC ecosystem, and its pervasiveness within the landscape of common computing devices has made it a standard. Therefore, hardware and software concerns related to multi-core are good targets for computer science investigations, with a high potential for a genuine contribution. Beside the plethora of applications for which more powerful solutions are still expected, efficient implementation techniques for many-core chip processors are of keen interest. WAMCA is aiming at providing an opportunity to address all aforementioned technical challenges and more, including reports on specific case studies. This workshop is an opportunity for application designers and computer architects to discuss new techniques and emerging applications as well as their implications on current and next-generation many-core architectures. Authors are invited to submit manuscripts reporting a technical contribution on multi-core related topics. Aspects of interest include (but are not limited to):
  • Multithread parallelisation
  • Scalability issues
  • Case study
  • Hybrid parallelisation
  • NUMA manycore implementation
  • Benchmarking and runtime analysis
  • Frameworks and tools
  • Foundation of shared memory computing
Important Dates
  • Paper deadline : August 11, 2020
  • Author notification : August 18, 2020
  • Camera ready : August 20, 2020
  • PS: Due to the extension of the camera ready deadline, we are accepting new submissions until september 06, the corresponding papers will be directely considered for evaluation.
