International Workshop on

ALGORITHMS, MODELS AND TOOLS FOR PARALLEL COMPUTING ON HETEROGENEOUS NETWORKS (HeteroPar’04)

In association with

THIRD INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON
PARALLEL AND DISTRIBUTED COMPUTING
[ISPDC 2004] 

July 5-8, 2004
Cork, Ireland

 

WORKSHOP THEME:

Local networks of computers are the most common and available parallel architecture now. Unlike dedicated parallel computer systems, local networks are inherently heterogeneous. They consist of diverse computers of different performances interconnected via mixed network equipment providing communication links of different speeds and bandwidths. Traditional parallel algorithms and tools are aimed at homogeneous multiprocessors and cannot be efficiently used for parallel computing on heterogeneous networks. New ideas, dedicated algorithms, and tools are needed to efficiently use this new type of parallel architecture. The workshop is intended to be a forum for people working on algorithms, programming languages, tools, and theoretical models aimed at efficient problem solutions on heterogeneous networks.

WORKSHOP SCOPE:

The topics to be covered include but are not limited to:

·        Heterogeneous parallel programming paradigms and models;

·        Languages, libraries and interfaces for different heterogeneous parallel programming models;

·        Performances models and their integration into the design of efficient parallel algorithms for heterogeneous networks;

·        Parallel algorithms for efficient solving problems on heterogeneous networks (numerical linear algebra, nonlinear systems, fast transforms, data mining, etc.);

·        Software engineering for heterogeneous parallel systems;

·        Applications on heterogeneous networks;

·        Integration of parallel and distributed computing on heterogeneous networks of computers;

·        Experience of porting parallel software from supercomputers to heterogeneous networks;

·        Fault tolerance of parallel computations on heterogeneous networks;

·        Algorithms, models and tools for parallel computing on global networks (grids).

 

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES:

HeteroPar’04 invites authors to submit full papers presenting original and unpublished research to any of the Program Co-Chairs by April 5th, 2004.  Submissions should consist of:

·        An optional appendix, with more details to be read/consulted at the discretion of the Program Committee.

All submissions will be reviewed by the Program Committee and outside referees. 
 

PUBLICATION:

All papers accepted for presentation at HeteroPar'04 for which there is at least one registeration fee paid will be published in joint ISPDC’2004/HeteroPar’04 post conference proceedings by IEEE Computer Society Press.
