The 15th Heterogeneous Computing Workshop (HCW 2006) will be held in Rhodes Island, Greece, on April 25, 2006, in conjunction with the International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium (IPDPS). IPDPS 2006 is sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society, through the Technical Committee on Parallel Processing (TCPP), and is held in cooperation with the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committees on Computer Architecture (TCCA) and Distributed Processing (TCDP), and the ACM Special Interest Group on Computer Architecture (SIGARCH).
HCW 2006 is sponsored by the U.S. Office of Naval Research and by the IEEE Computer Society, through the Technical Committee on Parallel Processing (TCPP).
Heterogeneous computing systems are those with a range of diverse computing resources that can be local to one another or geographically distributed. The pervasive use of networks and the Internet by all segments of modern society means that the number of connected computing resources is growing tremendously. Hence, the opportunity and need for heterogeneous computing systems to effectively utilize these resources in new, novel ways is growing concomitantly. This has given rise, for instance, to the notions of cluster computing, grid computing, and peer-to-peer computing. The effective implementation of efficient applications in these environments, however, requires that a host of issues be addressed that simply do not occur in "single-chassis" sequential or parallel machines. Thus, the topics of interest concerning heterogeneous systems and environments include, but are not limited to: programming paradigms and tools, resource discovery and management, task and communication scheduling, task coordination and workflow, performance management, heterogeneous cluster computing, grid computing, peer-to-peer computing, adaptive computing, ubiquitous computing, mobile computing, real-time distributed systems, security, fault tolerance, and application case studies.
The workshop plans to publish the proceedings through the IEEE Computer Society Press as part of the IPDPS CD-ROM.
