The pervasiveness of homogeneous and heterogeneous multi-core and many-core processors, in a large spectrum of systems from embedded and general-purpose to high-end computing systems, poses major challenges to software industry. In general, there is no guarantee that software developed for a particular architecture will be executable (that is functional) on another architecture. Furthermore, ensuring that the software preserves some aspects of performance behavior (such as=20 temporal or energy efficiency) across different such architectures is an open research issue. =20 Therefore, this workshop focuses on novel solutions for functional and performance portability as well as automatic tuning across different=20 architectures. =20 Following the successful organization of MuCoCoS 2008 (Barcelona, Spain), MuCoCoS 2009 (Fukuoka, Japan), MuCoCoS 2010 (Krakow, Poland), MuCoCoS 2011 (Seoul, Korea), this year MuCoCoS will be organized at Salt Lake City, Utah, November 16, 2012, in conjunction with the Supercomputing Conference SC12. MuCoCoS 2012 focuses on Performance Portability and Tuning.


- The topics of the workshop include but are not limited to:

:: Performance measurement, modeling, analysis and tuning :: Portable programming models, languages and compilation techniques :: Tunable algorithms and data structures :: Run-time systems and hardware support mechanisms for auto-tuning :: Case studies highlighting performance portability and tuning=20


- The papers should be prepared using the IEEE format, and no longer than 10 pages. Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance to workshop topics, technical soundness, and presentation quality. =20

- Submission of the paper implies that should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and present the paper at the workshop. Papers will be published as a part of the SC12 digital proceedings. These are IEEE digital library proceedings that will be available online. =20

- Please submit your paper (as PDF) electronically using the online submission system.
