Workshop on Parallel Programming on Accelerator Clusters (PPAC)

held in conjunction with IEEE Cluster'2009

August 31, 2009, New Orleans, LA



Accelerator-based parallel architectures, heterogeneous multi-core processors, FPGAs and GPUs, are rapidly becoming mainstream components for cluster computing. While the potential of accelerators for addressing problems such as memory latency and bandwidth has long been recognized, accelerators present several challenges to programmers and cluster systems designers. Conventional parallel programming models and libraries, parallel algorithms, and system software need to be restructured and redesigned to exploit the architectural strengths of accelerators and mitigate their lack of efficient general-purpose computing capabilities. This full-day workshop aims at bringing together researchers from academia and industry to discuss the latest developments in parallel programming models, languages, tools, system software and application development for clusters based on accelerators. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
