[PVS] CALL FOR PAPERS - 2nd Workshop on Dependable Multi-CoreComputing (DMCC 2010)

                       CALL FOR PAPERS
  2nd Workshop on Dependable Multi-Core Computing (DMCC 2010)

                       As part of
            The International Conference on
 High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2010)

             Le CENTRE DE CONGRÈS de CAEN
                Caen, Normandy, France

                June 28 - July 2, 2010

           Submission Deadline: February 15, 2010

Brief Description:

The quest for high-performance computing has lead to a reckless
competition between chip manufacturers.  Only two manufacturers,
who can withstand the cost pressure of fabricating < 45 nm
designs, remain. Today, the integration of four cores is common
- and the end of the road is not in sight.  
These multi-Core architectures bring up unprecedented
capabilities, opportunities, as well as challenges.  
The more transistors are integrated on a chip and the more cores
are introduced, the more faults can be asserted.  
These faults arise either during fabrication or operation.  
As the fabrication costs are continuously rising, it is most
important to increase the output of a fab by software,
architectural, or physical means.  This workshop addresses
issues and solutions through dependable software or hardware
design of multi- and many-core systems.  

The Workshop supports (but is not limited to) the following topics:
* Dependable Multi-Core Architectures
* Power-Aware Multi-Core Design
* Dependable & Secure Many-Core Designs
* Multi-Core Development and Design Tools
* Simulation Techniques
* System-Level Multi-Core Implementation
* Multi-Core Interconnect Technology
* Multi-Core System-On-Chip Development
* Reconfigurable Computing and FPGA
* Design for Testing
* Hardware and Software Debug Facilities
* Multi-Core Programming and Optimization
* Application Partitioning and Load Balancing
* Fab-Aware Scheduling
* Hypervisors and Virtual Machine Technology
* Trusted and Untrusted Environments
* Virtualization for Dependability
* Dependability through Multi-Threading
* Fault Detection on the Physical Layer
* Fault-Tolerant Software Design
* Fault-Tolerant Hardware Design
* Fault-Tolerant HW/SW Co-Design

Paper Submissions:

Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously
submitted elsewhere. Submission should include a cover page
with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone
numbers, and email addresses.  Please, indicate clearly the
corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords from the
above list of topics and an abstract of no more than 450 words.  
The full manuscript should be at most 7 pages using the two-column
IEEE format. Additional pages will be charged at additional fee.  
Please include page numbers on all submissions to make it easier
for reviewers to provide helpful comments.  

Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript via email to the
Workshop organizer at:


Only PDF files will be accepted.  Each paper will receive a
minimum of three reviews.  Papers will be selected based on
their originality, relevance, technical clarity and presentation.
Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will
be registered and presented at the workshop. Papers reporting
original and unpublished research results on the workshop and
related topics are solicited. Accepted papers will be published
in the conference proceedings which will be available at the time
of the meeting.  If you have any questions about paper submission
or the workshop, please contact the organizer.
