In continuation of a successful series of events, the 4th symposium of the Many-core Applications Research Community (MARC) will take place at the Hasso Plattner Institute for Software Systems Engineering in Potsdam. On December 8th and 9th, researchers from different fields will present their current and future work on many-core hardware architectures, their programming models, and the resulting research questions for the upcoming generation of heterogeneus parallel systems.
Both MARC members and interested external organizations are invited to submit unpublished reports, both on work in process or new results regarding software for novel many-core hardware architectures. While the Intel Single Chip Cloud Computer (SCC) serves as common research platform for most MARC members, other interesting research on next generation many-core platforms is also relevant for this event.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Operating system support for novel many-core architectures
* Virtualization solutions to deal with hardware limitations
* Dealing with legacy software on novel many-core architectures
* New approaches for leveraging on-die messaging facilities
* Traditional and new programming models for novel many-core hardware
All authors are invited to submit original and unpublished work as either regular papers (maximum 6 pages) for oral presentation or short papers (maximum 4 pages) for poster presentation. Papers describing work-in-progress are also welcome.
