ParCO 2009: Mini-Symposium "Parallel Programming Tools for Multi-core Architectures"

The International Conference on Parallel Computing ParCO2009 (1-4 September 2009, Lyon, France) is renowned for the high scientific standard of the presentations and the conference proceedings. For more information, visit the ParCO'09 webpage.

The Mini-Symposium on Parallel Programming Tools for Multi-core Architectures:

The improvement of the processor performance by increasing the clock rate has reached its technological limits. Increasing the number of processor cores rather than clock rates can give better performance and reduce problems such as energy consumption, heat dissipation and design complexity. We are witnessing the emergence of multi-core processors in all markets - from laptops and game consoles to servers and supercomputers. At the same time, architectures are becoming more heterogeneous and memory hierarchies and interconnection networks are increasingly complex.

Multi-core architectures present new opportunities as well as challenges to software that will run on computer systems built up on such multi-core chips. To keep pace with the evolution from dual-, quad-, to large many-core systems, the keys to unleashing significant performance enhancements for such multi-core systems are well-defined parallel programming models and robust, easy-to-use tools supporting the parallelization process. Compared to sequential applications, software engineers require a more powerful, well matched repertoire of development tools and methods for costeffectively achieving highly optimized, reliable, fault tolerant and robust parallel applications.

The purpose of this symposium is to bring together researchers and practitioners with diverse backgrounds in order to advance the state of the art in software engineering for multi-core parallel applications.
