Munich, Germany, February 29, 2012

Co-located with ARCS 2012 - Architecture of Computing Systems

The PARMA Workshop is jointly supported by the
2PARMA project
funded by the FP7-ICT Programme
under the Objective Computing Systems

Scope of the Workshop

The current trend towards many-core architecture requires a global rethinking of software and hardware design. The PARMA workshop focuses on parallel programming models, design space exploration and run-time resource management techniques to exploit the features of many-core processor architectures.

The PARMA workshop is composed of three main sessions:

  • S1: Programming models and languages, compilers and virtualization techniques
  • S2: Runtime management, power management and memory management
  • S3: Design space exploration and many-core architecture customization

Page limit for accepted papers (in English) is 12 pages. Submitted papers must be formatted according to Author guidelines. LaTeX and Microsoft Word templates can be downloaded here.

Accepted papers of the PARMA 2012 workshop will be published in the GI Edition - Lecture Notes in Informatics (LNI) series.

Keynote Speech

By PD Dr.-Ing. Michael Hubner, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.

Abstract: Dynamic paramterizaion and manipulation of hardware is a well known technique for runtime adaptive system design. This talk introduces a novel methodology to exploit this dynamic adaptation in processor cores, in order to adapt the microarchitecture in relation to the application requirements. Furthermore, the increased degree of freedom which is enabled through the approach for a novel quality of processors, called i-Core is described. Additionally to this processor cores, novel multigrained reconfigurable cores with new flexibility support the processor as acceleraor. The new cores as well as their exploitation will be presented and discussed.
