Call for Participation 4th International Workshop on Embedded HPC Systems and Applications (EHPC'99) April 16, 1999, Caribe Hilton, San Juan, Puerto Rico at the Second Merged Symposium IPPS/SPDP 1999 13th International Parallel Processing Symposium, and 10th Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Processing The International Workshop on Embedded HPC Systems and Applications (EHPC) is a forum for the presentation and discussion of approaches, research findings, and experiences in the applications of High Performance Computing (HPC) technology for embedded systems. Of interest are both the development of relevant technology (e.g.: hardware, middleware, tools) as well as the embedded HPC applications built using such technology. We hope to bring together industry, academia, and government researchers/users to explore the special needs and issues in applying HPC technologies to defense and commercial applications. Topics of Interest: -- Algorithms and Applications: addressing parallel computing needs of applications such as radar signal processing, surveillance, automated target recognition, etc. -- Programming Environments: addressing software design, programming, and parallelization methods/tools for general purpose, DSP-based, and reconfigurable architectures. -- Complex Systems Engineering: addressing performance modeling/simulation, partitioning/mapping and architecture trade-off, system integration, debugging and testing tools. -- Operating Systems and Middleware Services: addressing real-time scheduling, fault-tolerance, and static/dynamic resource management needs of embedded applications. -- Architectures: addressing special-purpose processors, high-performance packages, and advanced vision systems. The workshop will feature technical papers, presentations, and an open discussion session. Manuscript Submission: Authors are invited to submit by email a 4-page extended abstract of their paper to Devesh Bhatt ( by Dec 10 1998. We also invite authors to submit 1-page abstracts of work-in-progress presentations (no paper submission necessary). Abstracts or extended abstracts must be either in plain ascii or postscript format. If submitting in postscript, please include the title, authors, and affiliation in plain ascii text also. Submissions will be reviewed by the program committee. Important Dates: Abstracts or Extended Abstracts are due by December 10, 1998 Acceptance notifications will be made by December 31, 1998 Camera ready postscript files are due by January 14, 1999 (for inclusion in the LNCS Volume) Proceedings: Proceedings of EHPC'99, and some other workshops at IPPS/SPDP 1999, will published as one volume of Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) by Springer-Verlarg. You must submit camera-ready postscript file by January 14, 1999, to be included in the proceedings. Abstracts will be distributed in hard-copy to the workshop attendees. We will consider putting the proceedings also on the World Wide Web.
