Special Session: Auto-Tuning for Multicore and GPU (ATMG) in conjunction with the IEEE MCSoC-21 at Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD), Singapore.

MCSoC-21 will be organized on-site and on-line so that we can also accommodate participants or authors who cannot travel to Singapore.

Computer architectures and computer systems are becoming increasingly complex. Multicore processors and heterogeneous computing systems equipped with accelerators pose demanding challenges to programmers when optimizing the performance of their codes. Auto-tuning is a promising technology for tackling these challenges. Several methodologies and auto-tuning approaches have been proposed, especially for numerical computations. More recently, the applicability of auto-tuning has been extended to other areas of computer science and engineering, from embedded systems to extreme scale computing systems.

Topics of Interest

Papers are solicited in following areas of auto-tuning technologies for multicore and GPU/MIC computing, but not limited to:

  • Optimized Algorithms for Numerical Libraries
  • Automatic Code Generation and Empirical Compilation Hybrid Programming for Threads and Processes
  • Communication Optimization
  • Mixed Precision and Accuracy Assurance for Numerical Computing
  • Power Consumption Optimization
  • Fault Tolerance


Submission information including paper format and submission site is listed here.

  • Each submitted paper will be reviewed by at least three reviewers and will be evaluated based on originality, relevance to the session's theme, organization, and technical quality.
  • Submission of a paper implies that at least one of the authors will register for the symposium at the full rate and an author will present the paper.
  • The papers should be prepared according to the IEEE CS format, and no longer than 8 pages.
  • Proceedings of the symposium will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press.
