Workshop on Language-Based Parallel Programming
Models(WLPP)

in conjunction with

SIXTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON
PARALLEL PROCESSING AND APPLIED MATHEMATICS
September 11-14, 2005, Poznan, Poland,

Workshop Web Site
http://www.geocities.com/wlpp05

WLPP 2005 is a full-day workshop to be held at the
PPAM 2005 focusing on high-level programming for
parallel and grid computing, with special emphasis on
component architectures and models. Its goal is to
bring together researchers working in the areas of
applications, computational models, language design,
compilers, system architecture, and programming tools
to discuss new developments in programming Grids and
parallel systems. While this year's workshop focuses
on OpenMP, Unified Parallel C (UPC) and Co-Array
FORTRAN (CAF) language-based programming models,
contributions on other high-level programming models
and supportive environments for parallel and
distributed systems are equally welcome.

This workshop will feature papers that explore
experiences from application developers in the use of
the language and performance of real applications,
experiences in the implementation of tools supporting
the development and parallelization of applications or
supporting the final execution on different computing
platforms. We also welcome experiences in moving ideas
and concepts from one programming model to another.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to,

Language and library implementations.
Proposals for, and evaluation of, language extensions.
Applications development experiences.
Comparisons between programming models.
Benchmark Suites and performance studies.
Debuggers and performance analysis tools.
Compiler Implementation and Optimization.
Optimization Techniques.
Hybrid Models (OpenMP-MPI etc.)


Please submit full papers (formatted according to the
PPAM specification), not previously published or
submitted for publication elsewhere by e-mail to the
workshop chair (address below). Include a cover page
with the title, abstract, names as well as e-mail and
physical addresses of the authors as well. Please
submit postscript files, preferably viewable by
ghostview, or pdf-files.

The Second Grid Applications and Middleware Workshop

Grid Applications and Middleware Workshop 2005, Poznan, Poland (GAMW'2005)

in conjunction with the

SIXTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
ON PARALLEL PROCESSING AND APPLIED MATHEMATICS PPAM 2005
Poznan, Poland,
September 11-14, 2005

The Applications and Middleware Grid Workshop in Poznan, POLAND, is the second workshop in the series. It seeks to provide a bridge between the application community and the developers and directors of grid policies and infrastructures. The Workshop results will provide input to middleware and infrastructure developers.

The goals of this workshop are:
To provide a forum for exchanging the ideas between the grid application users, application developers and grid middleware developers
To identify the key application requirements and scenarios on the grid
To gather/spread the information about tools, toolkits and other mechanisms for grid application users and developers
To broaden the grid community by encouraging new users to use the grid technologies.

We are looking for papers from different areas of grid computing, especially those concerned with applications and collaborative environments on the grid.

Suggested topics for papers and posters include, but are not limited to, the following:
Grid Application Toolkits
Collaborative Environments on the Grid
Experience in both, converting existing applications and designing new applications to run on the grid
Experience on the characteristics of applications or particular application software that make them well suited for the grid, like checkpoint/restart functionality in grids, new challenges in data/information management
Application requirements for grid middleware and fabric infrastructures, including networks
Application Representations (Workflows, etc.)

PAPER SUBMISSION AND PUBLICATION

Original papers are invited for the conference. Authors should submit full papers (draft version, Postscript or PDF file) to Ewa Deelman, (workshop chair, email: gamw@man.poznan.pl) before May 15, 2005.
