Workshop on Architecture-aware Simulation and Computing

As part of the 2008 International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation
(HPCS 2008)

 and in conjunction with the 22nd European Conference on Modeling and Simulation
(ECMS 2008)

 Nicosia, Cyprus
June 3 - 6, 2008

Submission Deadline: March 15, 2008


With multi- and many-core based systems, performance increase on the microprocessor side will continue according to Moore's Law, at least in the near future.  However, the already limited memory access is expected to get worse with multiple cores on a chip, and gets more complex because of the required hierarchies of cache memory.  In addition, the increasingly hybrid and hierarchical design of high-end systems, including accelerator components, is another obstacle for programming.  All mentioned issues will have a major impact on overall performance in future systems.

This means that compute and data intensive tasks can only benefit from the hardware’s full potential if both processor and architecture features are taken into account at all stages – from the early algorithmic design to the final implementation.

Areas of interest for workshop submissions include, but are not limited to:

Paper Submission, Registration, and Publication
You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to simulation and modeling of multicore and multiprocessing systems.  Please submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript, not to exceed 7 double-column IEEE formatted pages, and include up to 6 keywords and an abstract of no more than 350 words.  Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews.  At least one of the authors of each accepted paper will have to register and attend the HPCS’08 conference for presenting the paper at the session.  Accepted papers will be published by ECMS in the conference proceedings.  Papers should be submitted as attachments to:  If accepted, final papers will follow the format that ECMS follows which will be posted on the web site.

If you have any questions about paper submission or the session, please contact the session organizers.
