  *Call for Papers: MDSProPP *  EXTENSION of SUBMISSION to 7th Feb 2014
  *(Multi-core/Many-core Distributed Systems: Programming Paradigms to
    Practice) Workshop at ICSE 2014*
  This workshop (http://mdspropp.tcs.tifr.res.in/) aims to provide a
  forum for researchers and practitioners tackling the upcoming
  software engineering challenges, such as creating large-scale
  multicore/many-core applications or reengineering legacy
  applications. We also aim to stimulate discussions between academia
  and industry to get a better understanding of the software
  engineering problems we are currently facing and how they could be
  solved. We *welcome contributions* making connections between
  multicore software engineering and other fields, showing how
  improvements in those fields lead to improvements in software
  engineering. The workshop also explicitly addresses software
  engineering researchers who have not worked in multicore/many-core
  before - but who have the knowledge and expertise that are important
  to addressing software engineering challenges posed by
  multicore/many-core - to contribute suggestions for solutions or
  position statements that are written in *a scientific approach*
  backed by arguments, experiments, or other empirical evidence. We
  solicit original, previously unpublished papers of current or
  work-in-progress research.
  *Specific topics* of interest include, but are not limited to:
  . Parallel patterns
  . Frameworks and libraries for multicore/many-core software including
    heterogeneous systems such as GPUs/FPGAs
  . Parallel software architectures
  . Modeling techniques for multicore/many-core software
  . Software components and composition
  . Programming models and their impact on multicore/many-core software
  . Testing and debugging parallel applications
  . Software reengineering for parallelism
  . Performance Tuning and Auto-tuning
  . Development environments and tools for multicore software
  . Process models for multicore software development
  . Experience reports from research projects or industrial projects
  . Many-core aware runtime support (Scheduling / Load balancing) for
    large-scale applications for varieties of contexts: grid, cloud and
  . Unified programming model for heterogeneous systems
  . Language and Compilation Frameworks for Multicore and Many-core systems
  . Dealing with legacy software on novel many-core architectures
  . Tools that enable power-aware many-core computing
  . Software engineering case studies for large applications like
    weather forecasting, prediction, CFD, physics, chemistry, biology,
    genomics, etc.
