1st Workshop on Programming Models for Emerging Architectures (PMEA)


The 1st Workshop on Programming Models for Emerging Architectures will be
co-located with the 18th PACT conference in Raleigh, North Carolina. Current
trends in computer architecture incorporate many cores into a single chip
some of which can be specialized heterogeneous accelerators. This makes it
difficult to program without knowledge of the underlying architecture. The
workshop goal is to discuss improvements in programming models that allow
to reduce the programmability gap for emerging architectures (e.g., manycore,
heterogeneous or hierarchical computing, ...). On one hand, the programming
model expressiveness can be increased to improve the productivity on such
architectures. On the other hand, new runtime optimizations for existing
programming models that allow a program to adapt better to the underlying
resources is possible.

Topics of interest to the workshop, in the context of new emerging architectures,
include, but are not limited to:

  • * Programming models extensions
  • * New programming models
  • * Compiler transformations, optimizations and support
  • * Runtime techniques, dynamic adaptability, and OS support
  • * Methodologies for programming
  • * Architectural support for programming models
  • * Application cases with new programming models
