 *Call for Papers: MDSProPP *
 *(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 previously unpublished papers of current or work-in-progress research.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.
