Call For Papers

international workshop on Code OptimiSation for MultI and many Cores

(held in conjunction with the

International Symposium on Code Generation and Optimization (CGO) 2013)

February 24, 2013 at Shenzhen, China




Many-core architectures such as mobile SOCs or GPGPUs are quickly becoming the norm in computing devices and consumer electronics. The community sees this development as an essential step in the evolution of processors, but at present there is no consensus on how software can make best use of it. Developing parallel applications often starts with an existing sequential implementation. A key problem is how to discover the parallelism potentially available and then convert it into a form that can be exploited. Once we have a parallel implementation, its performance largely depends on how it is mapped to the available hardware. Given that hardware is increasingly diverse, heterogeneous, how can this re-mapping be best achieved. Solutions to these two problems form the core topic of COSMIC'13. Research papers on innovative techniques and experience papers on insights obtained by experimenting with real-world systems and applications are both welcome.



This workshop aims at examining different solutions to these problems and includes (but is not limited to):


- programming languages and models
- compilers and tools
- runtime systems
- operating systems
- binary translation
- combinations of the above


for homogeneous, heterogeneous multi-core and many-core based systems.


Regular research papers and work-in-progress short papers are welcome.

Publication and Awards

  • Papers accepted by COSMIC will be published in the ACM Digital Library within the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series (ACM ICPS).
