EXTENDED PAPER SUBMISSION DEADLINE: November 20, 2007
***********************************************************************
2008 International Workshop on Multi-Core Computing Systems
(MuCoCoS'08)

Barcelona, Spain, March 4 - 7, 2008; in conjunction with CISIS'08.

***********************************************************************

Context
-------

- 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
---------------------

- The papers should be prepared using the IEEE CS format (instructions
for LaTex users are available at
<http://www.par.univie.ac.at/~pllana/mucocos08/IEEE_CS_Latex.zip>),
and no longer than 6 pages. Submitted papers will be carefully
evaluated based on originality, significance to workshop topics,
technical soundness, and presentation quality.

- 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. Proceedings of the workshop will be published by IEEE
Computer Society Press. The best papers presented at the workshop will
be selected for publication in an international journal.

- The papers should be submitted electronically via CISIS'08 website
<http://www.cisis-conference.eu/>
