CALL FOR PAPERS: DMCC 2012 - 4th Workshop on Dependable Many-Core Computing
As part of The International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2012) http://hpcs12.cisedu.info/ In conjunction with The 8th International Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing Conference (IWCMC 2012) July 2 - July 6, 2012 Madrid, Spain Paper deadline: February 19, 2012 Notification: March 19, 2012 Final submission: April 11, 2012 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES Today, the integration of many cores is common - and the end of the road is not in sight. These many-core architectures bring up unprecedented capabilities, opportunities, as well as challenges. The more transistors are integrated on a chip and the more cores are introduced, the more faults can be asserted. These faults arise either during fabrication or operation. As the fabrication costs are continuously rising, it is most important to increase the output of a fab by software, architectural, or physical means. This workshop addresses issues and solutions through dependable soft- or hardware design of many-core systems. The Workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the following: * Dependable Many-Core Architectures * Power-Aware Many-Core Design * Dependable & Secure Many-Core Designs * Many-Core Development and Design Tools * Simulation Techniques * System-Level Many-Core Implementation * Many-Core Interconnect Technology * Many-Core System-On-Chip Development * Reconfigurable Computing and FPGAs * Design for Testing * Hardware and Software Debug Facilities * Many-Core Programming and Optimization * Application Partitioning and Load Balancing * Hypervisors and Virtual Machine Technology * Trusted and Untrusted Environments * Virtualization for Dependability * Dependability through Multi-Threading * Fault Detection on the Physical Layer * Fault-Tolerant Software Design * Fault-Tolerant Hardware Design * Fault-Tolerant HW/SW Co-Design PAPER SUBMISSIONS Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and authors email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords from the above list of topics and an abstract of no more than 450 words. The full manuscript should be at most 7 pages using the two-column IEEE format. Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Please include page numbers on all preliminary submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments. Paper submission is handled through the Easychair conference system at: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dmcc2012 Only PDF files will be accepted. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, technical clarity and presentation. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be registered and presented at the workshop. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings which will be made available at the time of the meeting. If you have any questions about paper submission or the workshop, please contact the organizers.
