Background

MAMHYP-22 is the sixth workshop after the first five held in Torun, Warsaw, Krakow, Lublin and Bialystok in 2011, 2013, 2015, 2017, and 2019 respectively, jointly to the PPAM conferences. Despite the progress done in the field, the development of efficient algorithms for HPC systems with multiple forms of parallelism is still a challenging problem.

More precisely, from an architectural point of view, a High-Performance Computing system can be described using a hybrid multi-level structure: at the highest level, there are several systems connected among them by geographic networks (System level); an intermediate level is composed by the nodes in a single system communicating among them through dedicated fast networks or high-performance switches (Node level); at the lowest level, finally, there are several computing elements, computing cores as well as graphic accelerators, sharing resources in a single CPU (Core level).

These architecture levels have very different features, requiring different algorithmic development methodologies. For such a reason, the development of algorithms and scientific software for these systems implies a suitable combination of several methodologies to deal with the different kinds of parallelism corresponding to each architectural level. The general aim is to develop hybrid and hierarchical algorithms, able to be aware of the underlying platform. The main problems in this field are the management of large parallelism degrees due to several computing units, the heterogeneity of these devices, and the combination of several kinds of parallelism in a single algorithm. These topics are mainly investigated to gain the so-called exascale performance and, from another side, to face new forms of distributed computing as cloud computing, edge computing, and their interaction with HPC.

This workshop focuses specifically on Models, Methodologies, Algorithms, and Environments to exploit all forms of parallelism and their combination at all levels in the emerging HPC systems to gather the current state of knowledge in the field.

 


The topics include, but are not limited, to:
