Best Paper Award 

NVIDIA has generously offered to sponsor the ‘Best Paper Award’ with NVIDIA’s newest PASCAL compute capable card.  This award will be given to the author(s) of the paper selected by the Technical Program Committee and the Program Chairs. The award will be determined from viewpoints of the technical and scientific merits, impact on the science and engineering of the research work and the clarity of presentation of the research contents in the paper. 

Paper Submission Guidelines

Submissions are limited to 10 pages. They must follow the ACM format
The 10-page limit includes figures, tables, and appendices, but does not include references, for which there is no page limit.

Papers should be submitted electronically via EasyChair:

Submitted papers should not have appeared in or be under consideration for a different workshop, conference or journal.

In submitting the paper, the authors acknowledge that at least one author of an accepted submission will register for and attend the workshop.

Journal Special Issue

A Special issue on “High-level Programing Approaches for Accelerators” of the International Journal of High Performance Computing and Networking (IJHPCN)  will feature invited contributions from the workshop. These special issues will be edited by Sunita Chandrasekaran and Guido Juckeland. The submission to this special issue is by invitation only.
