2009 International Workshop on
Multi-Core Computing Systems

Fukuoka, Japan, March 16, 2009, in conjunction with CISIS'09





The improvement of the processor performance by increasing the clock rate has reached its technological limits. Increasing the number of processor cores rather than clock rate can give better performance and reduce problems like energy consumption, heat dissipation and design complexity. We are witnessing the emergence of multi-core processors in all markets from laptops and game consoles to servers and supercomputers.

Topics of Interest

The topics of the workshop include but are not limited to:
:: multi-core architectures
:: interconnection networks
:: multi-core embedded systems
:: programming languages and models
:: algorithms for multi-core computing systems
:: applications for multi-core systems
:: performance modeling and evaluation of multi-core systems
:: design space exploration
:: resource usage optimization
:: tool-support for multi-core systems
:: compilers, runtime and operating systems

Submission Guidelines
