PMAM 2010

The 2010 International Workshop on Programming Models and Applications for Multicores and Manycores

to be held in conjunction with
PDCAT 2010

December 8-11, 2010
Wuhan, China


Rapid advancements in multicore and chip-level multi-threading technologies open new challenges and make multicore systems a part of the computing landscape. From high-end servers to mobile phones, multicores are steadily entering every single aspect of the information technology.

However most programmers are trained in sequential programming, yet most existing parallel programming models are prone to errors such as data race and deadlock. Therefore to fully utilise multicore hardware, parallel programming models that allow easy transition of sequential programs to parallel programs with good performance and development of error-free codes are urgently needed.

This workshop is dedicated primarily to gather researchers and practitioners addressing the main challenges and share experiences in the emerging multicore software engineering and distributed programming paradigm, and in addition, to provide a discussion forum for people interested in programming environments, models, applications and tools specifically designed for parallel multi/many-core hardware environments.

Program Chair

Zhiyi Huang, University of Otago, New Zealand

Programme Committee (to be extended)

Manuscript submission

Papers reporting original and unpublished research results and experience are solicited. All paper submissions will be handled electronically via EasyChair.

Papers should be up to 8 pages long, double column and follow the IEEE manuscript guidelines. Suitable templates can be found here:

Authors must register and submit their paper through the online submission system. If you have problems accessing the system, e-mail your submission to:

All accepted papers will be included in conference proceedings of PDCAT 2010, which will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press and automatically included in the IEEE Xplore digital library. The proceedings will also be cited by Engineering Information (EI). At least one author of an accepted paper must register at the conference site and present the paper at the workshop. For no-show authors, their papers will be removed from the digital library after the conference and their affiliations will receive a notification.

Selected best papers would be considered for publication in a special issue of the Journal of Supercomputing.
