The Eighth International Workshop on
Accelerators and Hybrid Exascale Systems
Join us on May 21st, 2018
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
To be held in conjunction with
32nd IEEE International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium


  • Strategies for programming heterogeneous systems using high-level models such as OpenMP, OpenACC, low-level models such as OpenCL, CUDA;
  • Methods and tools to tackle challenges in scientific computing at extreme scale;
  • Strategies for application behavior characterization and performance optimization for accelerators;
  • Techniques for optimizing kernels for execution on GPGPU, Intel® Xeon Phi™, and future heterogeneous platforms;
  • Models of application performance on heterogeneous and accelerated HPC systems;
  • Compiler Optimizations and tuning heterogeneous systems including parallelization, loop transformation, locality optimizations, Vectorization;
  • Implications of workload characterization in heterogeneous and accelerated architecture design;
  • Benchmarking and performance evaluation for accelerators;
  • Tools and techniques to address both performance and correctness to assist application development for accelerators and heterogeneous processors;
  • System software techniques to abstract application domain-specific functionalities for accelerators;
