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 highly parallel 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 RePara 2018 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:
Accepted paper will be published in a volume of Lecture Notes in Computer Science (Springer) with all other EuroPara 2018 workshop papers.
Extended version of selected papers from the workshop will be invited by the RePara 2018 program committee for publication in an international journal special issue after further revision.
We are currently negotiating this special issue with Journal of Supercomputing (Springer, ISSN: 0920-8542, Impact Factor 2016: 1.326), where previous issues have been published for all other editions of the RePara workshop series.
