About RePara 2015:

In recent years, traditional processors have not been able to directly
translate chip fabrication-technology advances intro performance gains. To keep
satisfying the demand for computing power, there is a shift from homogeneous
machines to heterogeneous architectures combining different kinds of processors
(CPUs, GPUs, DSPs, FPGAs, and other accelerators). While this approach has
allowed significant performance and energy efficiency benefits, heterogeneous
systems are often highly difficult to program with existing tools. To reduce
the cost of system development, reengineering techniques emerge as a solution
which may help to balance ease-of-development with better performance, better
reliability, and lower maintenance costs.

The RePara2015 workshop aims to join experts from related disciplines to share
recent advances in different areas contributing to better transformation of new
and legacy applications to different programming models for diverse computing
devices in the context of parallel heterogeneous architectures.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* High-level parallel programming models, libraries and languages for heterogeneous platforms.
* Description languages for Heterogeneous Parallel Platforms.
* Parallel patterns for Heterogeneous Platforms.
* Autonomic management of Power/Performance tradeoffs.
* Automated kernel identification and assessment.
* Software refactoring approaches for parallel programming models.
* Transformations from source code to reconfigurable hardware.
* Integration of FPGA accelerators into refactored software.
* Runtimes for software coordination in heterogeneous parallel platforms.
* Performance modeling and prediction in heterogeneous parallel platforms.
* Energy efficiency monitoring and prediction in heterogeneous parallel platforms.
* Software quality assessment in parallel programming models with special attention to maintainability.
* Applying partitioning and mapping for parallel heterogeneous computing architectures.
* Application experiences of refactoring to software in industrial domains.

Submission Instructions

Papers submitted to RePara2015 should be written in English conforming to the
IEEE Conference Proceedings Format (8.5" x 11", Two-Column). Papers should be
submitted through the EasyChair submission system available at
easychair.org/conferences/?conf=repara2015 <http://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=repara2015>. The length of the papers
should not exceed 6 pages + 2 pages for over length charges.

Accepted and presented papers will be included into the IEEE Conference
Proceedings published by IEEE CS CPS and submitted to IEEE Xplore and CSDL.
Authors of accepted papers, or at least one of them, are requested to register
and present their work at the conference, otherwise their papers will be
removed from the digital libraries of IEEE CS after the conference.

Submitting a paper to the workshop means that, if the paper is accepted, at
least one author should attend the Symposium and present the paper.


Extended version of selected papers from the workshop will be invited by the
RePara2015 program committee for publication, after further revision, in an
special issue of Journal of Supercomputing (Springer, ISSN: 0920-8542, Impact
Factor 2013: 0.841).
