PMAM 2015

The 6th International Workshop on Programming Models and Applications for Multicores and Manycores

to be held in conjunction with
PPoPP 2015

February 7-8, 2015
San Francisco Bay Area, USA

Workshop Program

A pdf version of the workshop program is available here. You can find the workshop proceedings from here.


Rapid advancements in multicore and manycore chips have been a revolution within chip manufacturing, almost eradicating single-core processors. From high-end servers to mobile phones, multicore and manycore chips are steadily entering every single aspect of information technology. However, programming multicore and manycore architectures remains challenging today. To fully utilize these chips, parallel programming models that allow sequential programs and programs utilizing limited parallelism to transition to architectures with massive parallelism, while maintaining good performance and productive development, are urgently needed.

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