2010 Parallel Programming Workshop
8th Annual Workshop on Charm++ and its Applications
20th Anniversary of the Parallel Programming Lab


April 28-30, 2010

Hosted by the Parallel Programming Laboratory
Department of Computer Science
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Parallel applications tend to be complex and hard to debug.
Programmers need good programming models, compilers, and other
tools to ease their burden. For the new generation of multi-physics
and multi-scale applications, developers would like to concurrently
compose multiple modules, possibly written in a range of languages and
paradigms. Charm++ and AMPI address these issues, supporting a
programming approach that enhances programmer productivity while
achieving good performance. An adaptive runtime system automates
such necessities as load balancing, fault tolerance, check pointing,
dynamic job resizing, and performance instrumentation. The
message-driven approach supports concurrent composition of modules,
while higher level notations support commonly used communication
patterns with high productivity.

Join us for a discussion of emerging techniques and technologies for
parallel programming.

Call For Abstracts:

Authors are invited to submit abstracts or short papers describing
research and development in the broad themes of parallel processing
emphasized by Charm++ and AMPI, including message-driven execution,
automated resource management, and compositionality. Some specific
topics of interest include:

 * Parallel Computing Algorithms and Applications
 * Tools and Techniques for Performance Analysis and Tuning
 * Parallel Discrete Event Simulation techniques and applications
 * Parallel libraries and frameworks
 * Extensions and new features in Charm++
 * Tools and Techniques for application Development and Debugging
 * Massively parallel processing on future machines
 * Fault Tolerance and Resilience
 * Novel parallel programming models and abstractions
 * Adaptive runtime systems

Submissions should be in the form of extended abstracts up to 3
pages. The presentations will be posted at the Workshop website, but
there will be no published proceedings. Authors are encouraged to
publish them in other conferences.

Please send submissions to Pritish Jetley ( pjetley2 en illinois.edu ) by
the deadline below.

Important dates:

* Submissions due: March 22 2010
* Notification of acceptance: March 29, 2010
* Workshop: April 28-30, 2010
