CALL FOR PAPERS - IWMSE 2010

Third International Workshop on Multicore Software Engineering

May 1, 2010, Cape Town, South Africa

http://www.multicore-systems.org/iwmse2010

co-located with the 32nd Int'l Conference on Software Engineering, May 1-8, 2010


Aims and Scope
===============
Multicore processors are ubiquitous, and every new computer is a truly parallel machine. This is a fundamental change in the history of computing: parallelism is not confined to scientific applications any more but becomes available for everyone at low cost. Everyday applications and industry applications will need to be parallel in order to exploit the full hardware potential. As a consequence, software engineers now face the challenge of parallelizing applications of all sorts. Compared to sequential applications, our repertoire of tools and methods for cost-effectively developing reliable and robust parallel applications is spotty. The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners with diverse backgrounds in order to advance the state of the art in multicore software engineering.

This workshop aims to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners tackling the upcoming software engineering challenges, such as creating large-scale multicore applications or reengineering legacy applications. We also aim to stimulate discussions between academia and industry to get a better understanding of the software engineering problems we are currently facing and how they could be solved. We welcome contributions making connections between multicore software engineering and other fields, showing how improvements in those fields lead to improvements in software engineering. The workshop also explicitly addresses software engineering researchers who have not worked in multicore before - but who have the knowledge and expertise that are important to addressing software engineering challenges posed by multicore - to contribute suggestions for solutions or position statements that are written in a scientific approach backed by arguments, experiments, or other empirical evidence. We solicit original, previously unpublished papers of current or work-in-progress research. Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Parallel patterns
* Frameworks and libraries for multicore software
* Parallel software architectures
* Modeling techniques for multicore software
* Software components and composition
* Programming models and their impact on multicore software engineering
* Testing and debugging parallel applications
* Software reengineering for parallelism
* Performance Tuning and Autotuning
* Development environments and tools for multicore software
* Process models for multicore software development
* Experience reports from research projects or industrial projects
* Position statements
