June 28 - July 2, 2010
Le CENTRE DE CONGRÈS de CAEN
Caen, France

Workshop on Exploitation of Hardware Accelerators  (WEHA 2010)

CALL FOR PAPERS


As part of
The International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2010)
http://cisedu.us/cis/hpcs/10/main/callForPapers.jsp
In conjunction with
The 6th International Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing Conference (IWCMC 2010)


Extended Full Paper Submission Deadline: February 28, 2010

SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES
The importance of hardware accelerators (GPUs, Cell, FPGAs, ...) is increasing rapidly, especially in the computationally demanding disciplines such as realistic 3D computer graphics and high-performance scientific computing.  The use of these accelerators for General-Purpose computation achieves speedups of orders of magnitude vs. optimized CPU implementations.  They have become powerful, capable, and inexpensive coprocessors useful for a wide variety of computation. 

The aim of this workshop is to strongly encourage the exchange of experiences and knowledge in novel solutions exploiting and defining new trends in hardware accelerator, including hardware architecture, software tools, and applications. 

The authors of the papers selected for the workshop will be invited to submit extended versions of their manuscripts to be considered for publication in a special issue of the Microprocessors and Microsystems journal.

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

PAPER SUBMISSIONS
You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to exploitation of hardware accelerators.  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 email addresses.  Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords and an abstract of no more than 400 words.  The full manuscript should be at most 8 pages using the two-column IEEE format.  Additional pages will be charged at additional fee.  Please include page numbers on all submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments.  Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript via email to the Workshop organizers at basilio.fraguela@udc.es. Acknowledgement will be sent within 48 hours of submission. 

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.

Submission of a paper implies that should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register for the HPCS conference and present the paper in the workshop.  Accepted papers will be given guidelines in preparing and submitting the final manuscript(s) together with the notification of acceptance. 

All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings which will be available at the time of the meeting and are expected to be published as ISBN proceedings by the IEEE and will be available online through IEEE Digital Library.

The authors of the papers selected for the workshop will be invited to submit extended versions of their manuscripts to be considered for publication in a special issue of the Microprocessors and Microsystems journal.
