Workshop on Multithreaded Architectures and Applications
Held in Conjunction with the
International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium (IPDPS 2007)
Long Beach, California, March 30, 2007
programming and execution
models are starting to permeate the high-end and mainstream computing
This trend is driven by the need to increase processor utilization and
with the memory-processor speed gap. Recent and upcoming examples
that fit this profileare
IBM Cyclops, and several SMT processors from Sun (UltraSparc
T1), IBM (Power5+, Power6), Intel (Xeon with hyperthreading).
The underlying rationale to increase processor utilization is a varying
mix of new
metrics that take performance improvements as well as better power and
budgeting into account. Yet, it remains a challenge to identify and
productively program applications for these architectures with a
substantial performance improvement. This workshop intends to identify
applications that are amenable to MT and the MT programming and
models as well as the underlying architectures on which they can
workshop seeks to explore programming frameworks in the form of MT
and libraries, compilers, analysis and debugging tools to increase the
