EPHAM - Exploiting Parallelism using GPUs and other Hardware-Assisted

This workshop will focus on compilation techniques for exploiting
parallelism in emerging massively multi-threaded and multi-core
architectures, with a particular focus on the use of general-purpose
GPU computing techniques to overcome traditional barriers to
parallelization. Recently, GPUs have evolved to address programming of
general purpose computations, especially those exemplified by data
parallel models. This change will have long-term implications for
languages, compilers, and programming models. Development of higher
level programming languages, models and compilers that exploit such
processors will be important. Clearly, the economics and performance
of applications is affected by a transition to general-purpose GPU
computing. This will require new ideas and directions as well as
recasting some older techniques to the new paradigm
Topics of Interest

We invite papers in this emerging discipline which include, but are
not limited, to the following areas of interest.

Static and dynamic parallelization for hybrid CPU/GPU systems
Compiler optimizations for GPU computing
Language constructs and extensions to enable parallel programming with
Run-time techniques to off-load computation to the GPU
Language, programming model, or compiler techniques for mapping
irregular computations to GPUs
Debugging support for GPU programs
Performance analysis tools related to GPU computing
Other hardware-assisted methods for extracting and exploiting

Submission Guidelines

Papers of 6-10 pages may be submitted using any format. The abstract
should clearly state the problem being studied, the methods used, and
the results. If the results are preliminary, the authors should state
their expectation for the final results. To submit, please send a pdf
of your submission to Final submissions should
use the standard ACM conference format (two columns with 9 pt Times
Roman font, etc.)
