Twelfth International Workshop on

Programmability and Architectures for Heterogeneous Multicores

To be held in conjunction with:
the 14th International Conference on
High-Performance and Embedded Architectures and Compilers (HiPEAC)

Valencia, Spain, January 21, 2019


Computer manufacturers have embarked on the many-core roadmap, promising to add more and more cores/hardware threads on their chips. The ever-increasing number of cores and heterogeneity in architectures has placed new burdens on the programming community. Software needs to be parallelized and optimized for accelerators such as GPUs in order to take advantage of the new breed of multi-/many-core computers. As a result, progress in how to easily harness the computing power of multi-core architectures is in great demand.

The twelfth edition of the MULTIPROG workshop aims to bring together researchers interested in programming models, runtimes, and computer architecture. The workshop's emphasis is on heterogeneous architectures and covers issues such as:

MULTIPROG is intended for quick publication of early results, work-in-progress, etc., and is not intended to prevent later publication of extended papers. Informal proceedings with accepted papers will be made available at the workshop and online at the workshop’s web page
