Aims & Scope

With the general availability of multicore processors, software engineers face the challenge of developing parallel software that exploits the computing power in an optimal way. This is highly relevant for performance-critical applications of all sort but with degrading clock frequencies this is also relevant for any other application.

Compared to sequential applications, our repertoire of tools and methods for developing reliable and performant parallel software in a cost-effective way is still quite limited. The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners with diverse backgrounds in order to advance the state of the art in software engineering for the diverse kinds of modern multicore architectures.

The IWMSE workshop aims at making parallelism available to a wide range of applications using systematic software engineering methodology. We cover a broad variety of work that extends the knowledge and understanding of the software engineering and the parallel systems community as a whole. We want to establish and persist a significant research dialogue and push the architectural boundaries of multicore engineering.

We solicit original and unpublished articles of current research results or work in progress. We specifically invite both researchers and practitioners to submit early research work, technical sessions, or general discussions. Besides full research papers we want to accept technical tutorials that familiarize workshop participants with languages, environments, tools, or concepts from parallel software engineering.
