Submission deadline: Jan 16, 2010

Multi- and many-core microprocessors are being deployed in a broad spectrum of applications including Clusters, Clouds and Grids. Both conventional multi- and many-core processors, such as Intel Nehalem and IBM Power7 processors, and unconventional many-core processors, such as NVIDIA Tesla and AMD FireStream GPUs, hold the promise of increasing performance through parallelism. However, GPU approaches in parallelism are distinctly different from those of conventional multi- and many-core processors, which raises new challenges: For example, how do we optimize applications for conventional multi- and many-core processors? How do we reengineer applications to take advantage of GPUs' tremendous computing power in a reasonable cost-benefit ratio? What are effective ways of using GPUs as accelerators? The goals of this workshop are to discuss these and other issues and bring together developers of application algorithms and experts in utilizing multi- and many-core processors. Accepted papers will be published in the CCGRID proceedings. Selected papers will be published in a special issue of the Journal Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience. Papers submission deadline: Jan 16, 2010.

        Submission Guidelines

    The papers should be prepared using the IEEE CS format and no longer than 6 pages using CCGrid 2010 main conference format.

    The format conforms following details -- 10 letter size (8.5 x 11) pages including figures, tables and references using the IEEE format for conference proceedings (print area of 6-1/2 inches (16.51 cm) wide by 8-7/8 inches (22.51 cm) high, two-column format with columns 3-1/16 inches (7.85 cm) wide with a 3/8 inch (0.81 cm) space between them, single-spaced 10-point Times fully justified text). Submissions not conforming to these guidelines may be returned without review. Authors should submit the manuscript in PDF format and make sure that the file will print on a printer that uses letter size (8.5 x 11) paper. The official language of the meeting is English.

    Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance to workshop topics, technical soundness, and presentation quality. Submission of the paper implies that should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and present the paper at the workshop.

    Please submit your paper to the FGMMS 2010 submission server via an EasyChair account.
