Previous Workshops

The 13th Heterogeneous Computing Workshop (HCW 2004) will be held in Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA, on April 26, 2004, and has been associated with the International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium (IPDPS) for many years. IPDPS 2004  is sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society, through the Technical Committee on Parallel Processing (TCPP), and is held in cooperation with the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committees on Computer Architecture (TCCA) and Distributed Processing (TCDP), and the ACM Special Interest Group on Computer Architecture (SIGARCH).

Heterogeneous computing systems are those with a range of diverse computing resources that can be local to one another or geographically distributed. The pervasive use of networks and the Internet by all segments of modern society means that the number of connected computing resources is growing tremendously. Hence, the opportunity and need for heterogeneous computing systems to effectively utilize these resources in new, novel ways is growing concomitantly. This has given rise, for instance, to the notions of grid computing and peer-to-peer computing. The effective implementation of efficient applications in these environments, however, requires that a host of issues be addressed that simply do not occur in "single-chassis" sequential or parallel machines.

Thus, the topics of interest concerning heterogeneous systems and environments include, but are not limited to: programming paradigms and tools, resource discovery and management, task and communication scheduling, task coordination and workflow, performance management, heterogeneous cluster computing, grid computing, peer-to-peer computing, adaptive computing, ubiquitous computing, mobile computing, real-time distributed systems, security, fault tolerance, and application case studies.

The workshop plans to publish the proceedings through the IEEE Computer Society Press as part of the IPDPS CD-ROM.
