                                  CALL FOR PAPERS


Workshop on "Using Emerging Parallel Architectures for Computational



                                  held in conjunction with the

International Conference on Computational Science (ICCS 2009) -

                          Baton Rouge, Louisiana, May 25-27, 2009



The computing landscape has undergone significant transformation with
the emergence of more powerful processing elements such as GPUs, FPGAs,
Cell B.E., multi-cores, etc.  On the multi-core front, Moore's Law has
transcended beyond the single processor boundary with the prediction
that the number of cores will double every 18 months.  Going forward,
the primary method of gaining processor performance will be through
parallelism. Multi-core technology has visibly penetrated the global

Accordingly to the latest Top500 lists the HPC landscape has evolved
from supercomputer systems into large clusters of dual or quad-core
processors. Furthermore, GPUs, FPGAs and heterogeneous multi-cores have
been shown to be formidable computing alternatives, where certain
classes of applications witness more than one order of magnitude
improvement over their GPP counterpart.  Therefore, future computational
science centers will employ resources such as FPGAs, GPUs and Cell
architectures to serve as co-processors to offload appropriate
compute-intensive portions of applications from the servers.  


This workshop provides a forum for exploring the capabilities of
emerging parallel architectures to accelerate computational science
applications. Papers are being sought on a wide variety of topics
related to the field of using emerging parallel architectures for
computational science including but not limited to:


* Application studies on emerging architectures such as GPUs, FPGAs and
Cell B.E.

* Parallel algorithms and methodologies on emerging architectures

* Languages, models, tools, and compilation techniques for emerging

* Hybrid computer systems consisting of a combination of GPUs, FPGAs,

* Use of emerging architectures in clusters, grids and supercomputers



Submission Guidelines:


Authors are invited to submit manuscripts reporting original,
unpublished research and recent developments. All accepted oral papers
will be printed in the conference proceedings published by
Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. The
submitted paper must be camera-ready and formatted according to the
rules of LNCS (for LNCS formatting information see

Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to
