Call for papers

8th WORKSHOP ON APPLICATIONS FOR MULTI-CORE ARCHITECTURES - WAMCA

October 17-20, 2017, Campinas, São Paulo, Brazil

http://lups.inf.ufpel.edu.br/wamca2017

To be held in conjunction with the 29th International Symposium on Computer Architecture and High Performance Computing (SBAC-PAD 2017)

Selected papers will be invited for submission in the “Special Issue on Parallel Applications for Edge/Fog/In-situ Computing on the Next Generation Computing Platforms” in the International Journal of High Performance Computing and Applications (IJHPCA), Impact Factor 2.097.

Important dates:

  • Paper submission: August 18th, 2017 EXTENDED TO SEPTEMBER 10th, 2017 (HARD DEADLINE)
  • Author notification: September 15th, 2017 September 20th, 2017
  • Camera-ready: September 29th, 2017

This workshop opens up an opportunity for application designers and computer architects to discuss emerging applications as well as their implications on current and next-generation many-core architectures. Our goal is to confirm the current status of application development and optimization techniques for the new technologies as well as the future trends, exposing the findings, requirements, and problems to a select audience of top computer architecture researchers. We aim to focus on the discussion of multi-core computing from different aspects.
