FGC 2011 - The Second International Workshop on Frontier of GPU Computing


FGC 2011 - The Second International Workshop on Frontier of GPU Computing

To be held in conjunction with CSE 2011

Dalian, China, 24 - 26 August, 2011


Journal Special Issues

Distinguished selected papers accepted and presented in FGC 2011, after further
extension and revisions, will be published in special issues of the following
prestigious SCI-Indexed Journals:

  • Journal of Computer and System Sciences – Elsevier
  • Simulation Modelling Practice and Theory – Elsevier
  • Journal of Multiple-Valued Logic and Soft Computing


We are witnessing a tremendous adoption of GPU computing in today’s top supercomputers
as well as personal supercomputers. More and more applications are being accelerated by
GPUs, including those from computational finance, numerical computing, image/video processing,
engineering simulations, bioinformatics, weather simulations, quantum chemistry, etc.

The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners
to discuss and share their research and development experiences and outputs on the
massively parallel GPU platforms, software development tools, optimization techniques,
parallel algorithm design, and all kinds of successful applications. We solicit
original and previously unpublished papers addressing research challenges and advances
towards the design, implementation and evaluation of massively parallel GPU computing.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Applications on GPU Computing
  • Heterogeneous Computing
  • Performance Modeling and Benchmarking
  • Multi-core and Many-core Processor Architectures
  • Parallel Programming Languages and Compilers
  • Middleware and Libraries
  • Parallel and Distributed Algorithms on GPU Clusters
  • Self-configuration and Fault-tolerance
  • Green Computing
  • GPU Clouds

Paper Submission

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts reporting original unpublished research
and recent developments in the topics related to the workshop. The paper should be
prepared following the IEEE Computer Society’s Conference Style. Templates are available
at http://www.computer.org/portal/web/cscps/formatting. All papers will be peer reviewed
and the comments will be provided to the authors. The accepted papers will be published
together with those of other workshops by the IEEE Computer Society Press.
